It’s January 1, 2013 and I already stumbled a couple of times while writing the date. I feel as if I’m in denial right now about the fact that 2012 is gone. I’ve had a flash of nostalgic and thought provoking memories. For example, I remember my elementary school teacher mentioning how we were lucky to be experiencing the beginning of a new millenium. Recently, I visited Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL and took a picture at the same spot where I had one taken over a decade ago. I could almost say that the person in the older picture is from another life. Yet, a part of me feels as if that only happened yesterday. It serves as a reminder to me how fleeting time is in this world. Yet if you make good use of time, it feels as if you’ve come so far on a long adventurous journey.
Today, I find myself reflecting upon what I want out of 2013 and I’ve come to realize that this year will be my last complete year as a student and a chance for me to make the most impact on the trajectory of my life after I graduate. This is my chance to realize my strengths so I can align myself to take leverage of them. It’s my chance to improve my lifestyle and form new good habits that I can carry into my bachelor life after college.
I want to focus on only two things this year because I want to be realistic about my goals and actually achieve them instead of spreading myself thin.
