Ninety nine

Ninety-nine days remain in 2015. My, how time is flying!

(Or it might be ninety-eight by the time you read this. Either way, we’re now in the double-digits, y’all.)

How has your year been shaping up so far? Are you reaching success for any or all of your goals and resolutions for 2015?

I’m currently in the job hunt again. I have confidence that I will be in a new, better, and happier job by the end of the year. Now that I have a much better idea of what I like and don’t like about my job, it gives me some better ideas of what I want to look for.

I’ve cut ties with a few not-so-good-for-me people. I’m trying to befriend people who are positive influences and who align more to my beliefs and interests.

I have yet to ever go on a date. I’m still absolutely terrified of putting myself out there on an online dating website.

I’m still maintaining my volunteering and involvement at my church. I’d like to do more, but maybe I’ll wait to see what my new job will be.

I only read one book this year. I think I had aimed for 10? I can’t remember.

My goal for this year was, in general, to do better for myself. I hit some very low and bad times this year, primarily due to stresses and frustrations with my job. I feel like once I’m in a new job, things will get better.

We still have time to shape our year to exactly (or as close as) to what we wanted for 2015.

The best of luck to everyone in this 2015 journey.

  1. I think each year is a series of ups and downs, the good and the not-so-good! And it’s nice to reflect on the good of the past year!
    And what we don’t get done this year, we can start on in the next!
    Wishing you the very bestest related to a new job! It IS out there and you WILL find it! 🙂
    Even with the cancer and surgery…2015 has been a great year for me! I’ve learned, grown, accomplished some goals, am dealing better with bad things from my childhood, etc.! I’ve got amazing family members and friends who have been such a joy to me this past year!
    Since I did NOT go to The Great Bed Bath and Beyond in the sky recently…I will keep taking day at a time and finding (or creating!) the fun and the joy!
    Thank you for being a joy in my life! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. Wow, that’s all we have left in year 2015? How quickly the time passed!
    But you already seem to know what you want and it’s really good that you’re aiming for it. I’m sure 2016 will bring great things to you. It’s really inspiring to read posts like this–full of hopes and beliefs. I wish you best of luck too.

    PS. I still can’t believe that we only have less than 100 days in 2015.

    • I needed this to be “my” year. The last several years were full of depression and anger and regret. I’m trying to move away from that and towards the life I’ve wanted to live – in terms of my job, relationships, and personal actions.

      And yes, time certainly does fly. A little too quickly! 😦

  3. Dear Marica ❤
    I used to count the days of the year too, once upon a time, long ago. But now, every day comes with its own challenge. Whether the days remaining, are ninety nine or nine, makes no difference me thinks. I hope the remaining days of this year will bring you lots of happiness and satisfaction, with your job search, a date search and finding peace within your heart.
    Now, about reading books…. ONE book this year? ONE? Okay I won't say any thing more. I am sure job related stress can make you despondent about reading. I hope you will find time to read lots and lots of books in the coming years dear heart.
    Be smiling always, your eyes will convey the happiness to everyone around you.
    Love, ❤
    Zakiah.
