Obviously I’m a little behind. With the holidays and getting ready for Jamaica things have been kinda crazy in my life.
While I’m not one to make resolutions, I have been thinking about some things I want to accomplish this year:
The first is I need to get my financial life in order. After the separation there were unexpected bills that put me in debt – that I am still paying off, even as of last week! I want to pay off the little bit of debt I have and start saving. By the end of the year I want to be in a place where I can breathe comfortably and sleep well at night. This is my biggest goal.
I want to finalize the divorce. I want that part of my life over and done with.
I want to continue to nurture and grow the new relationships I have made since the separation – I think this is important given the above. If I am to really start over and have that part of my life closed, I unfortunately need to let go of some people, especially those with close ties to my ex.
I want to start preparing my body for a child. I need to get off one of the medications I’m on, and start taking folic acid every day. This seems so easy, but I haven’t been able to do it consistently yet!
As far as where A and I will end up, that’s not something I can speculate on. I am hopeful. I’ve also learned though that people and life can throw you curveballs! I’m planning for the future but keeping my eyes open.
