I love New Year's. I love reflecting on the year, but more importantly, I love looking forward to the next one. I am one of those that jumps at the chance to write lists and goals and resolutions. Mine aren't as simple (or as hard to stay true to) as 1. work out 2. eat better, etc etc... They are little more involved, and this year, I have some pretty good ones.
This past year hasn't been the most pleasant. Sure, it's been filled with so many wonderful things- a healthy family, a loving cat, a wonderful relationship, wonderful professional opportunities, but I've also been riddled with a few insecurities. It's been a year of lots of growth and change, which as we all know, can be difficult. I, personally, have grown and changed a lot and have watched as a lot of my relationships have as well. I'm assuming this happens to most humans about to enter into their 30's. I'm thankful to those around me that love and value me all the way to my core. There really is nothing more important in this world than relationships you maintain and the people you surround yourself with. I'm looking forward to moving into 2015 with a stronger sense of what those relationships mean and how to keep them safe. At the same time, I look forward to adopting a "I don't give a fuck" attitude to all the haters in the world. This has been the year of learning that there will ALWAYS be people with negative things to say or vibes to give off. I found myself spending so much time obsessing over the negativity. I look forward to saying "whatever" and moving right along. Because, ain't nobody got time for that.
I look forward to being healthy, happy, and always keeping a packed suitcase for whatever travels may come my way. I wish all you out there a wonderful New Year filled with the same.
Bring it on, 2015!
