Looking back on 2010

It's amazing how different I feel this year than I did at the same time last year. 

NYDay last year I was excited to be getting married and worried about how to reserve parent tables.  Less than a month later, I was dealing with calling off a wedding.

With changing my relationship status, I also dealt with buying a house.  It's had it's ups and downs, just like any new home does, but I am thrilled to be a homeowner.  Although I sometimes get lonely, I love having my own space.  I've enjoyed decorating a lot more than I expected!

I also had some heartbreak that I didn't expect though.  I got my second chance, but things ended.  Not my choice, and I'm still dealing with it.  It's funny - after just a few months, my heart broke more and harder than after years.  Maybe because I had spent years thinking about it.

I've started and dropped exercise routines.  I need to get going again - my big sis wants me to run a mini-marathon with her in 2012.  I need to start training, because with my history, it will take me this long to get ready for it!  One of my goals for the year is to run a 5K in April - it's sponsored by my school, so I need to make sure I don't embarrass myself!

I saw my best friend in the world marry her love.  I was Josh's date when his best friend married HIS love.  Both weekends were so much fun, it's hard to look back and feel sad.  I'm glad he was by my side, and I by his, as I so enjoyed myself.

It seems like there has been a lot of change in the past year.  Some good, some bad.  All in all, I think when I look back in 20 or 30 years, I will see it as a defining year.  When I started growing up as myself, and not as "Christy and". 

Here's hoping 2011 is a better year all around!

I'm hoping that 2011 is a wonderful year for you- and even though I know 2010 was hard, what a journey to realize that you're growing as YOU, not "Christy and" :)

I truly hope you have a positive year, Christy. It takes a lot of strength to remove yourself from a situation you know isn't right for you, and I know many people who don't have the courage, whether in careers or relationships. Keep growing as you!
