i’m lucky enough to have time off over the holidays and i find that’s when i’m able to relax.
to unwind from the daily grind and reflect on all things past, present, and future.
i absolutely love celebrating the new year. i allow my headspace to reset. to throw out all the troubles and worries of the previous year and look forward to the things to come.
give yourself a clear sense of direction while staying wild and free.
i ate and i drank. with no care in the world. i enjoyed to the fullest the company that surrounded me. the friends that have basically become family, i hold incredibly dear to my heart. no matter how much time passes in between visits, it’s as if no time has passed when you do see each other. pick up where you left off – laughter and giggles.
my new years was full of dancing. not only did we go out to a bar and dance to some great drum and bass, but we started and then eventually ended the evening dancing in our living room too. there’s something so freeing about dancing whenever and wherever you want. go ahead – feel and groove to the music. seriously – dance like no one is watching.
why the fuzzy photo? because i’m not too sure what 2015 has in store for me just yet. we’ll just have to wait and see. i do foresee a lot more water and lemon in my life though. i really don’t drink enough water.
so – what was 2014’s resolution? well, you may have figured that one out if you read this blog post.
i wrote to both of my grandmothers once a month for the entire year of 2014.
i didn’t know what to expect out of it when i first started, but what i got out of it was… priceless. i feel as if i found a way to connect where i wouldn’t have if i had just picked up the phone and had, maybe, a 10 minute conversation. it allowed me to get to know each of them as individuals a little more than i ever have before. i’ll treasure these letters forever. and don’t think this means that i’ll stop! oh no! this is one of those resolutions that once you start, you realize you don’t want to stop.
and so, i would encourage you to think of something. anything. big or small. something to accomplish this year for yourself.
don’t tell anyone – just yourself. and a year from now, feel free to tell the world, or just marvel and relish in your accomplishment because you deserve it.
happy new year everyone, and happy sunday – wherever you are!
