I was born on the last day of 1979. As the world celebrates the beginning of their New Years and their Decades, so do I tick off the years and decades of my life. 2020 will be my 40th year on this Earth and I have experienced so many wonderful things, and I am thankful for every year I have spent, and every breath I have taken.
I have one more year of my 30s and there are big things I want to do this year.
- I have found love. I am married to my best friend. You can read about that HERE. I am not getting any younger though, and I would like to experience the wonders of motherhood. This is going to be my year. We have been trying for a couple years now, and this year, I am going to do everything I can to make this a reality.
- I am going to quit smoking. This kind of goes hand in hand with the resolution above. I will need to quit anyway before I fall pregnant, as I understand that at my age I have to do everything possible to ensure a healthy pregnancy, so why not just do it first. And Never Go Back.
- Make blogging my career. I have had so much fun the past 3 months writing in this blog and getting to know everyone in the community. I have loved receiving your feedback and hearing of your successes. You all have given me the advice and the confidence to strive for my own success in the blogosphere. This year, I am going to go self-hosted and put a little money into it, and just go for it!
- I am going to start writing a book. I have always wanted to fictionalize my experience as a runaway teenager, and this is the year I will finally start making that dream a reality.
When I turn 40 on December 31st, 2019 I am not going to cry at the loss of my youth I am going to cheer the beginning of my new chapter and celebrate all the wonderful things that I accomplished in the last year of my 30’s.
What are your 2019 resolutions? I would love to hear them in the comments. I will be your cheerleader!
Happy New Year! See you next year!
