I set a goal to read 36 books during the year 2007. While I didn't fail miserably, I didn't meet my goal. Not reaching my quota made me think about the beginning of this year and some goals that I had in mind and the person that I wanted to be by the end of the year 2007. I didn't meet my "goals." I am not that person. Not even close.
This past semester was one of my hardest yet. I definitely made decisions that I regret. . . but looking back, I wouldn't change them. I learned a lot about myself, things that I wouldn't have learned if I would have stuck to my "goals."
This year, I want to live life one day at a time. That's crazy, you might say, especially since I'm graduating in May, moving to Wichita this summer, and have no idea what I'm doing after that. But is anyone surprised?
This year, I want to love people well. At the end of 2008, I want to be able to look back and know that I loved with all my heart, even if that means it got broken and abused a few times.
This year, I want to live as Amber, uninhibited and unreserved.
