2010 was a year to remember…. I really enjoyed finding my voice here at DoingLifeBeingTiff. I regret that I neglected it for the past few months. I’ve been busy working on Tiffany Eckhardt, Social Media PR Specialist. I took on my first seminar, Social Media Campaign Building and worked to develop social media platforms for several clients. I’ve learned a lot in 2010 as I stepped out into new ventures, but am ready to take on new challenges and welcome in a new year.
I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions… I don’t lay out the year in rigid goals and plans. Who can predict what turns the journey will take along the way? I believe in pressing into passions and dreams to discover where the journey leads.
2011 I Welcome You!
Every year I seem to be preoccupied by my weight issues and fitness goals. It’s no wonder that loosing weight is the number one New Years Resolution for most people. Oh…I am passionate about that illusive size 8. I am amused by my tendency to take on this passion so publicly. Last year I jumped into a fitness regime twice. Each time I set out to blog and vlogg my progress. Both times I only blogged the first workout. SO FUNNY! I am still working with Shan’s Fitness in exchange for helping her market her business. My lack of progress is not her fault. Truth is life always gets in the way. I am convinced that a lasting change has to be a lifestyle change. I was not willing to give up a few items in my diet and in the process lost my drive to work out a couple times. However, I have not given up and thankfully Shannon hasn’t either. This year I’ll realize my ideal weight. I have to look good when I realize a travel dream this coming March.
I’m dreaming of travel ALWAYS.
March 2011 Jeff and I will be traveling to Italy, one of my lifetime dream destinations. In preparation for this trip I have lost myself in travel guides, Italian lessons and researching couch surfers to stay with. I want this trip to be a combination of planned tours and serendipitous wandering of the Tuscany countryside. We plan on staying in hotels, a monastery and with couch surfing hosts. I will be blogging, creating videos and sharing what I discover about Italian culture. I am so excited!
I dream of traveling full time and hope to figure out how to do that financially. This year I plan on working harder on Weekend Retweat. I hope to discover more B&Bs and destinations for the ReTweaters to create a buzz about. Jeff and I will travel to our yearly favorites. Can you guess? Yep, you know it…New Orleans and Memphis. I hope to visit family in Florida and South Carolina. The rest of my travel ambitions I surrender to whatever may happen along the journey. Trust me… I am open to the possibilities!
The Business of Developing
This year I will continue to press into educating businesses on how to effectively use social media to promote their businesses. I have discovered that I thoroughly enjoy organizing seminars. I hope to jump into 2011 with a Facebook 101 class for area businesses. I am excited about the prospects, but need to develop some skills. In 2011 I hope to take on public speaking. EEKS… I said it. I will take some classes and hone the skill. (another motivation to realize my weight and fitness dreams)
I don’t believe in New Year Resolutions
I believe in pressing into what it takes to achieve your dreams. I believe in letting the world know what you want and putting yourself on the right path. This is a journey! I am excited about what 2011 will bring and love that it isn’t totally predictable.
Happy New Year!
