Today is my last day at work and I am getting emotional about how my year as went. I feel like I am definitely in a better place than I was last year professionally, but I know it could be better. Overall my career wellbeing went up and I thrived socially and emotionally but financially things were a little rough, which is understandable with our one income for now. My husband is pursuing his Master’s. My community wellbeing was a little off, as I was not as involved as I was last year. I was much more focused on my own issues, and this is an area where I hope to improve next year. I plan on writing a post about how 2011 was for me on a more detailed level in the coming days.
For the rest of week, I will be relaxing, and focusing on my daughter. I also plan on brainstorming on my start-up, on where this blog is going, and improving my relationship with my husband which I think all moms can testify to that its sometimes rocky. We are not having any issues, I just feel like we are so busy and this is the time to improve ourselves as husband, wife and parent to our little one.
I also plan on cooking a lot of food, and entertaining friends and family in the next couple days.
And lastly, I need to get my act together and find my daughter a music program. She loves the piano and I am thinking, why not get a piano teacher, so we’ll be shopping for one right away.
I just want to use this opportunity to thank you all for supporting me through this year. We all had some ups and downs, but overall, I hope that you all are able to look back and appreciate all that 2011 had to offer in your career, social, physical, health, financial and community wellbeing.
I plan on taking this slow, but attacking important tasks with due dilligence, but out of curiosity, Do you plan to slow down or ramp up this holiday season?
