My Year in Rewind

~*!*~Happy New Year Everyone~*!*~


I can't believe it's been a whole year-365 days-already. It seems like only yesterday that we were ringing in the 2009 new year with family and friends-Of course we can't forget a year ago, I also wasn't walking.

So much has changed since then, and yet, so much hasn't. Some of my 2009 highlights, both good and bad:

  • Hit my 5 year illness anniversary in the middle of January(got sick in January of 2004).
  • Had my first LLMD(Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) appointment and started oral antibiotic treatment
  • I moved from my downstairs room, back upstairs-Not extremely happy at the time, but I've accepted my new(old) room.
  • Opened The Eclectic Element: Handmade Etsy shop in February
  • Started The Eclectic Element blog
  • Sold my first piece of jewelry in March
  • My sister turned the big 1-8 in March
  • Opened The Eclectic Element: Vintage Etsy shop in April
  • Decided to try Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy in June
  • Stopped the HPT for personal reasons and started going to a Naturopath in beginning of August
  • Experienced my first colonic treatment (O.o)
  • Started walking again the end of August
  • Celebrated my 20th birthday in November

Of course there are so many more experiences had throughout the year, but I can't remember them all. Looking back through the year, I feel that the months January through August weren't months at all-Just one big span of time where I existed.

Once I started walking, my life started up again.

Now that 2010 looms, I feel hopeful. It's just a bone deep feeling that I have that this year is my year!

Things I hope to do in 2010:

  • Write my book
  • Have my first blog event
  • Go back to school
  • Eat the best I can and exercise to build back up my strength
  • Visit some of my Lymie friends all over the United States
  • Travel(anywhere and everywhere)

I guess this post is just to let you all know I wish you everything you desire in the New Year, no matter what it is! Health, Wealth, Love, or Happiness-Whatever it is, go get it ^.^

Love and Energies.

hey girl, you've been busy! Not only in 2009 but visiting all of the blogs that you visit! :-)

I'm so glad that some positive things happened to you in 2009, especially the walking again!

I really feel for you with Lyme disease and I pray that you will continuously get better!

Good luck for 2010 and I'm here if you need anything!

Happy New Year!

We must be on the same wave length. I've got a scheduled post later today that says something similar: "So much has changed since then, and yet, so much hasn't."

Wow, you've had a pretty eventful 2009 and your goals for 2010 are great. I can't wait to read your rewind in 2011. :0)

Good luck on all your adventures this year. I'd love to know more about your book. What are you interested in for schooling? Travel, can I hide in your suitcase and come along? The one place I want to see before I die is Alaska. Now I believe I have 50+ years to do that but I don't want to wheel around Alaska, I'd like to walk so one day in the not to far future.
Take care, HAPPY NEW YEAR and good luck. God Bless you and yours.
