Thankful for in 2010, Bring it on 2011

As everyone else is typically doing their end of the year blog posts, reviews of the year, etc. I am also doing this!

I want to start with my word of 2011, I don’t really have a lot of resolutions, but I do have a word I want to stick with:

  • My word for 2011 will be self-improvement. 2011 will NOT be about someone else, this will be a year for me.

 

The above might sound selfish, but let me explain. I’m ALWAYS about someone else. Whether it’s a boyfriend, a best friend, an organization, etc. I’m always looking out for others over myself.

I really do need to focus more on me, improving myself and helping myself.

 

 

 

 

2011 Resolutions:

  • Delegate more
  • Trust others more
  • Gain 10 more members to our PRSSA Chapter
  • Visit 4 new states
  • Attend at least 6 conferences
  • Gain an incredible summer internship
  • Work on friendships that have faded a little bit
  • Keep in contact with people better

 

I love conferences, I love networking and I love meeting new people. I met A LOT of new people this year and I’m so thankful I got to meet them in real life and online:

  • Sarah Evans
  • Deirdre Breakenridge
  • David Spinks
  • Jeremy Pepper
  • TARA ROSENBAUM
  • Ben Pearcy
  • Kimberly Lucio
  • Amy Bishop
  • Rachel Sprung
  • Jason Mollica
  • Chris Banks
  • Matt LaCasse
  • Dashan Craft
  • Simon Oh
  • Joelle Tweeted
  • EVERYONE really from PRSSA National Conference D.C.
  • More people too I probably forgot!

 

 

2011 MUST be a better year because 2010 was NOT my year. I’m going to be optimistic about this.

  1. That’s a great resolution, Lauren. It’s not selfish to think about how you can improve and be a better person- both personally and professionally. You can’t help others unless you take care of yourself first.

    I know this, because I grapple with the same issue. As a Type A personality and true perfectionist, I like to have a hand in everything. One of my many resolutions is also to learn to let go a bit and delegate more tasks. It won’t be easy, but I know it will free up my time to focus on the really important things that really matter.

    1. Thank you Jess! It’s actually good and comforting to know it’s not just me who struggles with this. I have to start taking care of myself, I really do.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
