Reflections of the Year that was...

Well its that time of the year again when we all seem to reflect on the year that was.

This past week i decided to hit the streets strolling ( i'm definitely not into power walking!) as one more minute on an exercise bike, cycling absolutely nowhere would have driven me insane! The late afternoons in the cool breeze allowed me to zone out, de-clogg my cluttered mind and wonder about where life will take me in the new year.

I have had a bit of a tough time mentally of late, not being able to train has proven really difficult. ( I have not picked up a dumbell in 41 days arghhhhhhhh!!!) . I was getting frustrated and upset and as you know, bad habits were creeping back in =(. Many tears were shed as i opened up my heart to a friend, digging up old memories from the past. It was quite painful at the time, but it was a necessary step in helping me move forward in my journey. Enough said.

2009 has been a year of many highs and lows, but in the spirit of christmas i intend to keep the rest of this post full of positivity =). For any newbies to my blog, welcome... There are 2 jam packed months of entertainment for you to read!

I am not a religious person, but i'm definitely a spiritual one to some degree. I do believe in karma- what comes around goes around. I do my best to be the shining star on all those that cross my path, and in return i have been blessed with a lot of good fortune this year.

So here are the highlights:

- i competed in my 3rd Figure comp in september, in the best shape of my life
- i recieved a huge pay rise
- i completed my Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness
- i am now apart of an amazing sales team at work
- i bought myself a HOT pair of assets =) ..... my number 1 highlight of the year!!!!
- work just bought me a new set of wheels- a smokin hot red Hyundai i30 sport wagon

So all in all i just have to keep reminding myself to look at the big picture cos the Highs certainly outweigh the Lows. Sometimes i think that the forces of nature bring Hemorrhoids and hardships into our lives to remind us not to be so complacent or to get too cocky. They are there to challenge us, to strengthen our character and to make us wiser.

However, the most important thing that has happened to me over the year has been my emotional transformation. I can truly say that i am really starting to discover just who i am as a person and what i am capable of achieving. I am stronger both physically and mentally than i have ever been in my life, i'm more grounded and definitely a lot more emotionally stable. And through this blogging experience, i have started letting go of the past thus allowing positivity to filter into my life. THANK YOU all for following my journey, offering your support and just being there when i thought i was doing it all on my own. I am ending this year happier then ever, and starting to find some peace within my soul. I am excited for what 2010 will bring... i've got a really good feeling about it. 

I have been conjuring up and action plan to tackle the new year. There are quite a few goals that i want to achieve so all will be revealed in the weeks to come.

I wish you all a beautiful christmas, filled with all the love, laughter and happiness the world has to offer.


P.S. I just found this pic from comp... one of the best butts' in the business if i do say so myself! lol
