Good bye 2008…Hello 2009

by Meghann on December 31, 2008

2008 has been a great year. I have been through soo much, both good and bad. I wouldn’t change any of it for a second. I’ve learned more about myself in the past 12 months then I knew in any of the 23 years before it. Most importantly I have learned to live life one day at a time and never take any of it for granted. :)

In 2008…..

I made a resolution to get my butt into shape and discovered my love for running and healthy eating…

 

I celebrated turning 23 in the Georgia Mountains with my wonderful family…

I visited Ireland with my Second Family who welcomed me with open arms…

I witnessed my little sister turn 21 and celebrated with her at Disney…

I celebrated Abbie turning 1…

I vacationed on the beach…

I hiked in the Great Smoky Mountains…

I had my heart broken…

I left my first real job and started a new adventure in a new city…

I moved into my first apartment all by myself…

I reconnected with old friends…

I made some new friends…

I started this blog…

I wore a bikini on Halloween

I voted for the next president and watched history in the making

I reunited with College friends

I ran a Half Marathon in 2:08:16 with my parents waiting for me at the finish line…

 

Most importantly I discovered myself this past year and learned to live life for me.

With all the wonderful things I have experience in 2008, I am even more excited to see what 2009 will bring me. I have so many goals I would like to achieve now in both my personal and business life.

With all of that being said here are the goals I have narrowed down for myself in 2009:

  • Go on Dates – Hell I would even be happy with talking to just talking with a guy. I had my heart broken this past year, but I believe its time to move on. I’m enjoying being single, but a free meal every once in a while would not hurt either. ;)
  • Run a Full Marathon – This is a long term goal I am hoping to accomplish in the Fall. 
  • Compete in a Triathlon – I am registered to run one in March!
  • Save Money – I think this is a given for any list of goals.
  • Take on more responsibility at my Job
  • Spend less time on the computer
  • Maintain weight loss
  • Eat less refined sugars
  • Continue to discover myself and push my limits

They’re simple general goals that I hope will guide me through the next year.

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you have a safe and healthy start to 2009! I will be bringing in the New Year with some friends downtown, the next time I will be blogging it will officially be 2009!!!!
