I posted this status on Facebook this morning. I feel very strongly about this:
With my birthday one week away, I decided to take some time and reflect on the past year.
They say that you get wiser as you get older, and I believe that’s true. I can definitely say that I’m better off now than I was last year; I’ve made many new friends, seen more of LA, got two pilots finished and registered, and my future looks very bright.
There were moments that knocked me down, but I got back up. Those events made me stronger, and I now view them as learning opportunities.
I feel like I’m on the runway and ready for takeoff. If this year was good, then next year will be even better: More professional success and more personal happiness.
Let’s do this.
