Despite a late night, I woke up shortly after my 5:00 am alarm went off. Okay, I hit snooze 1,2,3, maybe 4 times, checking my email and reading a message from Alisha, but then I decided to physically get up. Remembering that I didn’t want GLEE last night, I opted to incoporate it into my gettin’ ready routine, instead of rushing myself out the door per usual. BEST IDEA EVER! It’s almost 7 am, time for this girl to head off to begin her commute, and I am full of glee as I start this Wednesday….December 1st. I cannot believe it’s December!
Eleven months ago, with my dear friend Adriana by my side, I made the decision that 2010 was going to My Year of Me. I didn’t mean that in a selfish way, because that’s truly not my style, but instead I knew that it was time for me to put myself first- for once in my life. It’s been quite a year for me. A year of taking chances and learning lessons. Its been A.MAY.ZING.
So these next few weeks I’m going to reflect on this past year to remind myself of how far I’ve come and to serve as a reminder for next year when I look back on this time and think the changes I endured during another year. So here’s to another December in Chicago and to all of the people who stand by my side as I continue along my journey. I love you all.
