Once again it’s the end of a very good year, much better than 2006, and I’m optimistic that 2008 will somehow be better.
I accomplished many things in 2007. Taking a 5 week vacation with my daughter was the highlight of my personal and my riding year. I got to know some new people and was the recipient of some outstanding hospitality! I was employed the whole year! It was close at times, but I pulled it off. All the bills from my trip are paid, much to the dismay of my credit card company. I won a seat on the MOA board. Had some articles published and started a blog. This was the year I stopped putting miles under my tires for the sake of miles. I chose more roads less traveled and reaped the benefits of it. . My main squeeze and I did some fix and repair work together and are now the proud owners of a well tuned relationship. I even like riding with him. Definitely more of that next year.
I’m not big into goal setting. But I have ideas, and I have a vision of the kinds of things I’d like to do. This won’t be a big trip year; I expect I’ll be thinking about something for 2009. Keeping the big trip to every other year seems like the fiscally prudent thing to do.
Did you have a better year this year? Do you have plans for next? Is a big trip in those plans? You (and only you) can make that big trip happen. It takes a commitment to do it, don’t listen to the nah-sayers! Be specific about what you want to accomplish, line things up to make it happen! Have a Happy New Year!
