2015: Looking Ahead

Accepting that people are who they are and that they will probably not change.  (I already knew this but a couple of situations reminded me that no matter how you treat someone, you must A) allow adequate time to get to know someone before letting them in emotionally, and B) accept how they behave and treat you at face value.)

 

3 THINGS I DID in 2014 I’M PROUD OF
– Paid off the first furniture set I ever purchased, interest free (March)


Tomorrow I will recap my racing accomplishments this year.
