I know you had an amazing 2012 – another move under your belt, you’re kicking butt at your job, and you’re another year smarter. You’re probably still crying at rom coms, speaking in acronyms, and living every moment with a smile. I’m hoping you’ve gotten a little better at decision making. You’ve never been good at making decisions without stewing over them for days, weeks, or maybe months after you’ve made them.
I also know you’ve achieved your 2012 goals. After reading Chris Brogan’s post back in January 2012 about your 3 words for 2012, you wrote down these three words to define your goals and experiences over the past year: Create, Happy, Relationships.
Throughout 2012 you have created some amazing artwork like handmade greeting cards, websites, painted furniture, and curtains. You’ve developed your creativity in the social media assets you manage at work. You’ve learned a ton, and you’ve had so much fun doing it. You have finally learned how to use Photoshop and Illustrator, and you’ve become more marketable in your personal and professional life.
During 2012 you’ve had a wonderful attitude, you’ve laughed a lot, you’ve smiled a ton, and you’ve settled into a city for two full years. It’s the longest you’ve stayed anywhere since living at home in high school. You’ve been better at sweating the small stuff a little less and you’ve prioritized the big stuff. You have no regrets, and you’re happier for it!
You decided before this year that you wanted to do a better job at calling your parents more often, and you’ve done it! Maybe you’re still not the “favorite child,” but you’ve made big strides! You’ve also done a ton of weekend trips – visits to friends, beach weekends, and romantic getaways. You’ve put a lot into the relationships that matter to you, and because of that, you’ll never be lonely.
Not only have you achieved all of your “word” goals for 2012, but you’ve achieved your “string of word” goals as well. You have created happy relationships – and you deserve it! Keep up your positive attitude and try not to get too hung up on things you can’t control in 2013.
