Hey, I won!

I've realized lately how much fluff this journal is anymore. I used to chronicle my feelings and emotions and beliefs... well, not in a massive amount, but certainly more than I have been.

I generally don't make new years resolutions, but these are things I wish to work on:

I want to become a more active individual. I'm sick of my back/shoulder hurting all the time, of feeling giant and bloated. I want to actually USE that stupid gym membership that I've been paying for in order to give myself a better quality of life.

Combined with this, I want to eat better. Having random organics sent to me on a biweekly basis has already given me a bit more adventure in the kitchen. I would like to also cut out most meat and dairy.

I would like to... as cheesy as it sounds, remeet myself. Life has just turned into a monotony of work and WoW. Yes, I'm an adult and there seems to be monotony as you age, and a happiness of sorts with monotony, but... there's much more out there that I would like to experience, much more I would like to grow into.

I would also like to strengthen my relationships with the people who mean the most to me. My roommates, my mother, one or two friends. I have become very cynical in my old age regarding people and I seem to not open up as much as I used to. I went from being open to being friends with anyone to discarding those who I know are not... for me.

I would like to become a better supervisor/manager. I'm still quite green regarding all of this... leadership stuff. As cheesy as it sounds, I would absolutely love to be able to become a LEADER of others, as well as a pinnacle of direction, accomplishment, and other such things.

Finally, I would like to get my finances into order.

I'm with you on the monotony thing! I think you are a good leader, from reading your posts over the years you had are really good at handling tough situations.

Ha ha ha, thanks :)

There are many reasons why I'm afraid of emotions and hate showing emotions, so maybe I don't post nearly what I'm feeling or experiencing!! If there's nothing else I've learned over eight years of LJing, I know that at least getting stuff out on a page and even having one or two responses is massively cathartic.

I used to post more "deeper" posts but I didn't feel comfortable for everyone to read it so I end up making a lot of stuff private or deleted but like you said it is nice to get some feed back :)

Being a grownup... bleh. I'm always pushing aside the stuff I want for the stuff I "have to" do. :/

I'm finding that as time goes on, I want to do less and less and am beginning to be content in my monotony.

Unacceptable.

Management training and development would be the single most valuable asset to your career. Not to say that you're a crappy manager now, but having skills to appropriately handle all situations makes you such a more valuable employee.

You should bring this up with your current managers/company that you'd like to go through any training or development programs they have available.

Those are great goals. I need to be more aware of people too, I know the last few months I've shut down a lot, online and off:(

hm, you and i are opposites at this time. i'm turning towards a cycle where i will STOP posting as much personal stuff in my journals and go back to more quirky links and impersonal things. it was important to chronicle what i've done through the end of this year due to the surgery, and i'm glad i did. i think maybe it's back to more introspection that's not in the quite-so-public arena. we'll see.

glad to hear you'll be focusing more on loved ones :)
