The Year in Review

I know it's been a while since I have written. Not much has happened in that time frame, so you can breathe a sigh of relief that you haven't missed anything...lol. However, I have been doing some thinking about my year. Every year since I was about 16 I spend the last week of the year doing a mental review. I literally talk out loud to myself and go month to month reviewing life. I go from January to December, noting the ups and the downs, wrongs and the rights, blessings and more importantly the lessons learned. At times I find the growth so invigorating it propels me to do better.

This year has had some low points. I have done some things I am not proud of, but I have definitely learned some good lessons. It took most of the year for me to realize that I was trying to change my life when nothing was wrong with it. There is always room for improvement, I agree, but I was breaking stuff just to fix it. Smh at me.

I spent too much time this year constantly asking the who? what? when? how? of things. Only to come to the same conclusion...life is too short to ask so many questions. I am usually down for soul searching, but not at the cost of my sanity.

In the end let's just say I am all too happy to welcome in 2011, taking with me the lessons learned, and bid farewell to 2010.
