On January 3, 2015, I posted my 2015 goals for “The Restoration of Tamara”. At the time, I was fairly certain that while I knew some of my goals would be challenging, I was also aware that they were all attainable. At least I thought so at the time. Now that I have had the time to reflect and assess how successful I have been with my goals (I chose way back when I was ready for a change), I honestly think that I need to modify a few of them. While I am not thrilled with my progress, I do celebrate the fact that I am revisiting and modifying them. After all, my competition is not another person; it is “me against myself
(key: red– not complete; orange– somewhat complete;
Strike through– Mission completion)
1. Be honest with myself and learn to trust myself.
Really, how do I measure this?
2. Speak wisely or remain silent (we all have this right).
I really might be a negative person.
3. Have dinner with my grandparents once a month.
This has happened a total of 3 times, really, Tamara?
4. Gather ALL of my debts, and one by one, make them disappear (ongoing).
Let’s just say that this might take place over a period of time.
5. Contact one old friend each month and set a meet-up place and time.
This has happened 3 times, and I am really impressed!
Mission completion- now all I have to do is wait patiently for the results to see if I am certified for another 10 yrs. Who am I kidding? I have no patience!
Mission completion- Volunteered for MLK, Jr. event
DONE- question is will I do another?
9. Enroll my 4 yr old in a gymnastics class (suggestions welcome),
and take send my 19 yr old a surprise package (shh, she can read).
I have completed half of this goal, and to tell you the truth, I had forgotten about the gymnastics class, uh oh!
10. Choose optimism over pessimism whenever possible.
I will share my “uh oh” moments.
Again, I really might be a negative person.
