As I sit here and reflect on this past year, I am proud of how I’ve grown, stretched, and have done things I never thought I was capable of doing, but I also realize that I have much to improve. Yes, I want to eat healthier, lose some weight, and exercise more, but I also want to be a better me. I feel best when I’m helping or doing something that helps others. So my goal is to continue to be stretched, to continue to seek situations that may be uncomfortable but will help me grow emotionally, spiritually, and as a leader and advocate.
You all are amazing, and I’m proud to represent so many talented and dedicated people. It’s okay to brag about yourself a little…Tell me somethings you accomplished during this past year that makes you proud…and one goal you have for this next year.

I’ll start, I’m proud that I have not let my absolute terror of public speaking stop me from doing what I love, advocating for members and RESPECT. Go to http://www.iearespect.org to learn how you can help bring RESPECT to yourself and to our members.
I want to improve…besides myself by eating and doing things that will help me be healthier (every year), this year, I want to be kinder to my self by improving my self talk and seeing my amazing value. (It sounds weird, me saying it…but we all are amazing and have amazing value!! It’s time we appreciate it!)
