Well, 2010 is almost over. If came and went so fast.
Where I have been:
My theme for 2010 has been rediscovery. Most people go along life as a straight path, weaving in and out of different circumstances, events, and relationships. When it comes to my life, I feel that I have made some wrong turns, not mistakes, but I find myself sometimes in a place I have already been. I have to reevaluate where I am, in order to determine which way I should I have gone.
I started 2010 off in my hometown, living with my Mother. It was nice while it lasted. I enjoyed working from home, and spending time with my Mother and friends. My dear friend Amy and I reconnected, and it was a reconnection that I was in desperate need of. In regards to rediscovery, Amy is perhaps the person that has had the most influence in my life. We became friends and a crucial moment in our lives, and helped each other become young women. Meeting with Amy again has allowed me to reconnect with a younger version of myself, and it was a fun me full of Unity & Spirituality.
2010 was a year full of travel. My husband and I went around this country, not once, but twice with his band. The first tour went extremely well, and it was so nice not being the only girl on the road with the boys… my sister in law was able to join us. Spring is such a beautiful time to travel, I feel like we followed the wildflowers as they sprang up.
Our summer was a little harder than expected, with the tour not going as well as planned, but I enjoyed myself everyday and made so many amazing friends across the country. When I left on the summer tour, I knew that it would be my last long tour. This helped me to live in the moment and appreciate all that I saw. It also made me so ready for what came next.
During this summer tour, Bryan and I decided to plant our roots again, and this time…in DENVER. Best decision we have made. Why Denver? Well many reasons, the main being, friends. It had been over 3 years since I lived in a place surrounded by friends, and it was time again. My best friends live here. Women who empower me, support me, and truly understand who I am. There are also new friends out here that are so welcoming and warm. Bryan has been thriving with his new hobby, home brewing and has started his own blog all about Home Brewing, Cramped Space Brew.
Denver is a city that loves community, small business, and vegetarians. I feel so at home here, and at the moment, cannot imagine living anywhere different.
Where I am going:
Changes will be welcome in 2011. I feel called to write on here what my goals are, maybe and hopefully I will stick to them a little better than I have done in the past.
I want to be a healthy and happy. Sounds simple… this means establishing a workout routine and cutting back on my sweets.
Get back into career mode. While lots of people want to get out of that mode, I want to be dedicated to learning new skills and advancing my career.
Connect with the Denver Community. This one should be easy, but I want to learn more about this city, and become a supportive resident.
The summary of my life right now is that I am happy. I have a wonderful loving husband who has been by my side for over 9 years, and this year is our 10th. In November of 2011, we will have been together for an entire decade, and a very important one. 16 years old to 26. I live in a city that I love, and I am surrounded by good friends. I have a loving family, who I am very proud of. I have a wonderful little dog, who is a huge part of my life and happiness.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to the future.
