2012: The Year Of Turning 30

It’s been nearly four months since I last wrote a blog post. Wow, how time flies.

The last few months (or maybe all!?) of 2011 went by in a blur of conferences, travel, networking, planning, weddings, birthdays, parties, concerts… Add in a dash of Christmas cheer and holiday bliss and you’ve got a recipe for How Not To Keep Your Blog Updated.

While 2011 certainly had its trials and tribulations, I can wholeheartedly confess that I can look back on last year and say, “2011, you threw everything you could at me, but you know what? I still had a rockin’ good time.”

We’re now six days into a new year. 2012. The Year I Turn the big 3-0.

It’s also the Chinese Year of the Dragon*, which in their zodiac represents success and happiness. They move like lightening and whirlwinds – all powerful yet totally unpredictable. So if that’s any indication about how the next 51 weeks is going to pan out, I say bring it on.

In the blind optimism of starting a new year and also the fact I’m embracing the approach of my 30s with gusto, I’ve taken some time out to think about the values that mean the most to me. So I thought I’d share them and maybe you can help keep me accountable?

Write regularly
Eat healthy
Exercise frequently
Save more
Spend less
Work harder
Talk honestly
Listen openly
Laugh joyously
Celebrate often
Forgive easier
Love genuinely

And above all stay true to myself.

I’ll continue to share my thoughts and feelings on life, love and friendships with you and invite you to share in embracing all that this year has to throw at us.

Here’s to 2012!

  2. Happy nearly 30!! Turning 30 for me was life changing as I quit my job, ditched my boyfriend and moved to a city where I knew only 1 person (and it wasn’t a man!) and had no job. BEST. THING. I. EVER. DID.

    Have an AWESOME year!!
