M- acted as resident DJ, I was resident hostess and a low-key, yet fabulous, time was had by all.
Generally, this holiday break was a keeper. One for the books. But now the fun is over and it's time for me to figure out just what I want to get out of this New Year. Do I want to be a skinny bitch? (Not really.) But I still have to get on the other side of 200.
Do I want to have a new job? Maybe; I'd really like to build more of a nest egg and have more disposable income.
Do I want to finally finish that trashy novel? Yes; I have half of it written! Only 25k more words to go!
Do I want to start making money from this blog? Uh, yes. (JP, how do I do that?)
Do I want to build deeper, more mature relationships with the folks I love? Yes, but on my terms.
Do I want to see my family more? (Especially my sister...) Yes, though they are going to give me a stroke.
(Just a word to families of color out there: therapy is your FRIEND. Really. Try it.)
I thought this year was going to be about kicking professional ass but if I look at what I really need, I need a year that will push me further down this road of relationship building and self-building that I've been on for the past two years. Sure, I'd like to kick professional ass but I don't want to ignore the relationships I've also built and some of which are in flux right now.
What do you want 2010 to bring?
