Hey guys! Welcome back. Today is New Year’s Eve which means 2020 is upon us. So today I wanted to share with you my 2019 reflection. I wanted to take some time to look back on the year and share some of my favorite things as well as some of my not so favorite things. The point is to look back and share with you how we got to this point. Hopefully this inspires you to reflect on your own year and look forward to new beginnings.
I first want to say that this year involved a lot of growth. I grew not only professionally, but also personally. I started this year having no idea what was in store and I mean it when I say I am shocked at how far I have come. It was an eventful year. I got engaged and almost got married. And even though it didn’t work out, it was still a really major time in my life and I won’t be forgetting it. I also reached 1,000 blog followers which was another monumental moment for me. And I graduated from college. There were many other moments, but I think those are the three worth mentioning.
I am really proud of all the growth that happened this year. I took a lot of chances and pushed my own boundaries in ways I never before had. I am super thankful for all the times I didn’t believe it when I thought I was incapable of something. I am glad I was able to push through and prove that I am capable of so much more. All of the hard work and perseverance has paid off. It was really stressful at times and I know I struggled a lot, but I managed to keep going and get through it. And I am so thankful for the amazing support system that I had along the way.
The one thing I think I would have done differently was not listening to everyone else. People think they know what is best for my life, but really they are only looking at it through their perspective. It is much different than what they think when looking at it through my eyes. So in 2020 I am really going to try to work on not letting other people dictate how I live my life and what I choose to do. I learned this year that I gain nothing from living for others and I only end up disappointing myself. And I truly believe that that is no way to live.
I didn’t really achieve all of the goals I set for myself last year. But this year I am striving to work on my 101 in 1,001 list and hopefully knock a good portion of those off. I did not really allow myself time and energy to devote to reaching my goals, so that is a big thing I am working on for 2020. I want to make sure I am working towards reaching my goals so I can grow in all of the areas that I want to grow in and so by the end of the year I will be able to say I accomplished most of what I wanted to accomplish.
There were so many things that I wanted to do but didn’t. And that is one of my biggest regrets at the end of this year. I accomplished many things that I am happy for, but I did not break many of the habits that I wanted to. I did a great deal to take control of my life and I have began being successful at that. But in 2020 I am striving to take control of it completely and be my own person once and for all. I did step outside of my comfort zone this year. I started being more social and letting people in. Sometimes I came to regret that, but I also built amazing relationships with so many people that I couldn’t imagine life without.
One of the best things about this year was visiting the place that I will soon be moving to. I am so excited about moving to a larger city and getting to start the next chapter of my life there. I am so thankful I finally found a place to go where I feel excited and ready to start life. There are so many things coming in 2020 that I am excited about, and it all starts with moving. I will be starting a new job hopefully very soon and I look forward to that very much.
When I think of 2019 the first thing that comes to mind is growth. And I mentioned it earlier, but I want to say again that I can’t believe the amount of growth that happened this year. My life has changed drastically and I look forward to another year so I can look back at this time next year and see how far I have come. I spent a lot of time growing Love, Geeky Girl and I am thankful for every person who has supported me thus far. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for us.
One year from now I would like to be able to say that I accomplished the things I set out to accomplish. I want to find a lot of success and happiness in the next year. My biggest goal is to open myself up to new opportunities and possibilities and trust myself to get where I want to be. I want to make myself a priority and work on living my life the way I see fit. I am excited to work with new people and see where I can grow and change. I hope you are excited to continue on this journey with me.
2020 is starting with a big move this weekend, so keep looking out for that. I will be starting a new job hopefully very soon.
