At Year End

Published by at 9:50 pm under Social Avenues

It has been yet another challenging year for me.  During the summer, I was feeling good about myself being included in a group, and then months later has led into another disappointment.  But I have gained more experience for building relationships with people, learned from my past mistakes, and have not given up on myself with the support of my family and “true friends” I have today.  I am confident to take the next road that will lead to success.

As the year comes to an end, I should look back on the positive things.  I completed 24 sessions with a physical trainer.  That was helpful for me to reduce anxiety and get in better shape.  I was actually able to beat my 9-year niece in arm wrestling. 🙂  I took my first trip alone to New York City.  It was something adventurous that I had never done before and I’m proud of myself for doing it.  The New York trip has built up confidence in me to get out more and try different things.  I have done some volunteer work but I didn’t do as much as I should have.  At the very least, I started something and plan to pursue more in the new year.

During the past several months, my hearing loss community has continued to grow.  I made new friends along the way from all over the country.  It has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done by helping people in a community.  I’m getting more involved with the hearing loss chapter group here in Milwaukee.  I’ve taken the role of being a volunteer coordinator for Milwaukee Walk4Hearing in May 2009.  This is a job I had also never done before.  It will be a good experience for me especially when it comes to social interaction.

I believe the year 2010 will be a turning point in my life.  My plans for the New Year will bring good things and the dreams I have will come true.  I will work hard to become more active; whether joining a class, getting involved in activities, or doing some volunteer work.  The key is to find what you’re interested at and not stay home doing nothing.

I am excited to start the New Year.
