The Obligatory End of the Year Post
Posted on Monday, December 31, 2012 at 10 am by Yasmine Galenorn
Hmmm…since I don’t do resolutions (as those who have been following me for years know), I focus on goals for the new year, and what I’ve accomplished in the last year.
This past year I have accomplished so much:
- My blood sugar is back to normal and I’ve stayed on the low-carb.
- I’ve lost more weight, I’ve lost about six sizes so far and feel great.
- For the first time in years, I was able to travel, and went to Chicago and Anaheim.
- I won a career achievement award.
- I threw myself back into my magick with a renewed passion, and my magick shifted dramatically.
- My body is in better shape than its been since 1989.
- I found clothing I love that looks good on me.
- I met some very cool new friends whom I’ve become very fond of.
- I’ve started learning how to shoot. (Yes, guns).
On the negative side:
- I had two anaphylactic reactions and now have to carry an epi-pen.
- I’m much more impatient due to not stuffing my feelings down with sugar (not so much a negative depending on whose opinion it is).
- I’ve changed a lot and this has been a good thing, but not easy to sort through in some ways.
- Not so much sleep.
Anyway, my goals for the new year:
- Keep up the good work on my body. Lose down to where I was when I met my ex and keep up with the exercising.
- Work more, focus more, waste less time.
- Enjoy life as much as I can.
- Travel a bit more. Meet friends I never expected to meet.
- Develop my skill with shooting more.
- Expand my audience for my books.
- Make sure that I feel as good about myself as I can. Do the things that make me feel confident, strong, and sexy.
- Make sure my new directions in magick are integrated into my life on a regular basis.
- Avoid everything that could potentially give me allergic reactions.
- Try new things and not be afraid of the changes happening in my life.
So tell me, people. What are your goals? (NOT resolutions—goals are things you can realistically achieve, resolutions are quite often pipe-dreams. And what did you accomplish this year that you wanted to?
