2010 was quite an eventful year for me.
Career changes occurred right at the beginning of the year. I was promoted from CSR to Product Specialist. I soon became the only person on our support team to know the product in and out. I have since turned into a Senior Product Specialist without officially gaining the title. I am also a trainer for internal and external representatives and clients. I’ve been given the title by colleagues as “Jill of all Trades” and they say I’m the go-to person for our product. That’s quite an accomplishment!
My personal accomplishment would be that after 7-8 years, I finally started to care about my body and appearance. I have lost 18 lbs. since October 1st and plan on dropping another 20-25 lbs by the end of March. With the weight-loss I’ve started gaining my self-confidence and self-esteem again. For me that is a huge accomplishment.
In my relationships I’ve gained and lost love this year. I’ve lost a couple of dear friends due to circumstances or misunderstandings. I broke up with my boyfriend after 4 years, who put me through absolute hell during our break up and over the past year or so. But has since started to become my best friend. (Some relationships are better left at friendship then becoming more)
I’ve also met someone new, who puts a huge smile on my heart and face. He makes me all bubbly and shy. I feel happy knowing he’s around. He’s slightly a difficult person to deal with at times, but the challenge makes it so much more intriguing.
My blog has been one of my greatest accomplishments. I know I don’t get hundreds of thousands of visitors daily and seldom do my readers comment or respond to my posts. However, the few regulars that do comment and read my blog religiously have made this journey more worthwhile. To gain a few regulars rather than a million one-timers is definitely an accomplishment.
All-in-all, 2010 has been a good the year for me. Career growth, personal accomplishments, new and restored relationships and regular readers. Those are quite the accomplishments.
But I’m happy to be looking ahead to 2011. Although, last year was good to me, there are many changes I still need to make and many things I want to accomplish this year.
Here’s to a brighter, better year ahead!
