Wednesday, January 2, 2008


So this is the time where I sit and reflect on all that was 2007. All that was great, all that sucked, all that you wish you could forget, and everything that you are determined to make better in the coming year. It’s a bit much to put on oneself simply because the clock struck midnight on December 31st, but I suppose sometimes we just need a structured way to examine our lives and a reason to make some much needed improvements.

Personally, I am thankful for each and every experience from this past year. Yes, that includes all the bad dating choices, low bank account balances, and competition disappointments. The great thing about life’s experiences is that they are all a combined effort to bring you to the exact point you are at now and right now I feel like I am in a great place. I am more content now then I have been in a long time and I am excited for this year more than I can ever remember being in previous years.

We all have defining periods of our lives that shape us and define us in certain ways. I know that this year will be that for me. It will include the biggest goal I have attempted to attain and I have never physically, mentally, and emotionally dedicated myself to something more than I have to achieving this dream.

So, while I have made a mental note to read my bible more frequently, take the time to actually call my friends and family on the phone, eat healthier, and volunteer my time to a worthy cause, my main objective is just to make each day in 2008 a step in the right direction. That’s not so much a resolution as it is a conscious decision to remember that I don’t have any time to waste and that the path in front of me requires the type of dedication and determination that doesn’t allow for days off.

Here’s to a healthy, happy, and fulfilling New Year.

I am confident that you will succeed - you are simply one of those people who knows how to stay focused (I so am not), plus you are smart and talented to boot.

Great things are destined for Brianna Glenn.

All I really care about is seeing your new years pictures!
hahaha j/k
I love you and know it doesn't take a New Year for you to get your shit together. You've always been a determined and dedicated person. If you say you'll do something, it will get done.
Me on the other hand, well...I'm still living at my Mother's house so lets not hold our breaths!

Bianca, I'm the size of a baby elephant and I just stopped working. I have nothing better to do then sit around feeling sorry for myself and expressing it through my sister's blog! hahaha
