I wouldn’t label 2008 as one of my favourite years and I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t looking forward to leaving it behind. However I want to recognise the things 2008 has taught and given me these last 366 days so I can step into 2009 with a sense of preparation.
Things I have learnt in 2008:
There are relationships in my life which don’t make me happy and I want to change those patterns.
I’m an emotional and sensitive person and sometimes I can take things too seriously. I want to learn to slow down and not take things too personally.
I expect people in my life to have certain roles and when they fall out of that mould I get very upset. I want to be more flexible and allow for idiosyncrasies.
My attitude towards myself has improved over the last year and I want 2009 to be the grounds for more self-lovin’ xD
What I did in 2008 that I had never done before:
