Reflecting on the old; looking forward to the new

A lot of exciting things have happened to me in 2010. Some of the bigger ones included making my first real job change after leaving Rogers and joining Palette PR (now energi PR!), which was both sad and exciting; I was reunited with the girlfriend who was off in Calgary teaching for a year; finally, I made the big change and moved out on my own for the first time.

I was fortunate that, for this past year, the positives outweighed the negatives, and I think it has largely to do with having a positive outlook on life, which is the mind set I’ve had over the last few years. If something gets you down, don’t let it take hold of you because you end up wallowing in it, and missing opportunities to grow and therefore become happier.

Looking ahead to 2011 I can’t quite predict what it will bring, but here are a few things I look forward to:

  • Getting more accustomed to living on my own; it’s been a great experience the first two months in, but I still have a lot to learn;
  • Connecting more with the people in my life – I haven’t done enough of that this year and would like that to change;
  • Doing some kind of travel, whether it be within Canada or abroad;
  • Carrying the professional experiences I’ve gone through in 2010 forward into the new year with a better understanding of what I want out of my career.

Do you look forward to anything in the new year, or are you just happy to see the current one end?
