We all have good qualities and some well, not so good. For me, I admit that sometimes I have a bit of an “attitude problem.” At least that’s what I’ve been told by a few close friends and family over the years. People think I’m negative but I truly don’t see myself that way. I’m not an unhappy person and I don’t dwell on things. I just see myself as being realistic. So, every year when new years roles around and I’m scrolling through facebook, my first thought is usually something like this-
It’s not that people can’t change or do better. They can. It has to come from the heart though and they have to actually want to do it. But setting new years resolutions based solely on the fact that it’s a new year, is well, dumb. Why does it have to be a new year for you to make a change? If you’re unhappy in your life in July, change then. It doesn’t have to be a new year for you to make yourself better. Just my opinion.
However, I am looking ahead and thinking about 2015. I don’t have any resolutions. The word “resolution” implies change, and I am not trying to change who I am or what I do. I do have professional goals though. Here they are:
1. Pass the CPC-H certification exam and get a medical coding job. (I wrote all about that in my last post).
2. Figure out my work schedule so I can be home from work by the time the kids get home from school. Or figure out who is going to watch them after school until I get home.
3. Continue to write music. At least 3 songs this year.
That’s about it. If all those things happen it will be a good year! But, I can think of more, but they’re personal goals, so I want to keep them to myself. What about you? What are your goals?
