But as I sit here typing on the eve of my birthday, staring into another Christmas I honestly have to say it sure does feel like this year went faster. There were many changes in this last year and I can honestly say none of them were bad. Perhaps a bit uncomfortable at first but it all worked out in the end.
Seriously, I am still ahead, I didn't gain it all back and I am strengthening my resolve to meet the goal of losing more this coming year.
I dove feet first into the world of online work and actually made money this year...still a little shy of breaking even but it has been a year of learning and growing. I can now do live webinars, I officially launched Kat's Hands..virtual assistant, social media PR for websites and other projects. I became a BA for Amega Global, now work with Empower Network and have my hand in a few other places too.
Speaking of change: I moved a few times but am settled once again in my beloved Front Royal surrounded by the Appalachian, Blue Ridge and Shenandoah mountain ranges and happily attending my favorite church Dynamic Life Praise and Worship Center. My health has improved quite a bit from the fall of last year till now and I am looking forward to keeping that momentum going.
In a nutshell I decided to stop people pleasing and start God pleasing and doing what I believe I should. I don't mean being hateful or self-centered either, just that my priority was no longer on trying to keep everyone else in my life happy and forsaking what I knew I should do. I have made many friends because of this, alienated a few and think I was quite successful at being louder than the carpet, for sure! :D
I guess its safe to say when your busy and constantly on the move to improve and to change then the world around you truly does move, or at least appear to move, at a much faster pace. Simply because you have no time to stop and wonder how long you have til you get to the end.
See you soon
