The countdown begins, the bright lights, champagne, and laughs are flowing. It’s New Years Eve. Hopefully, you find yourself surrounded by friends and family. This is the time of the year we can reflect on what has and hasn’t transpired. Its kind of ironic, when I was younger I felt like the years crawled at the pace of a snail, but now that I am an adult, it’s like they can’t slow down. I just want to the ability to pause my life and just relax for a minute, or better yet, jump in a time machine back to my child hood where it was so easy and carefree.
I had the best childhood, it was amazing. I grew up in a small town in Northern Idaho. A lot of people can’t even find Idaho on the map, Ha! Its sandwiched between Montana and Washington. Anyways, our town was so close to the border of Canada, so often times that is where we vacationed. It was pretty cool if I say so myself.
There I go again rambling! Anyways, back on topic. New Years Resolutions…… I am totally a cliche and make resolutions every year. In all honestly, majority of the time I don’t cross some of them off, but the ones I deem most important, I do. Last year my resolutions was rather vain, I wanted to get into better shape (pretty sure this is like, the #1 resolution) I have always been skinny which is great, but I am not as strong as I used to be. I wanted more muscle definition in my legs, and of course abs. Well, since August I have been busting my butt in the gym and I am well on my way. It’s a lifestyle change, and it’s taken a few months to see the difference, but I have been super happy about it.
This year, I sat and did some soul searching on what I want to achieve this upcoming year. I am super proud of myself for branching out of my comfort zone and began freelance writing. Writing to me is extremely cathartic, and its always been a passion of mine. It’s much easier to sit and write out my feelings than it has been to voice them. This year I want to achieve more with my writing. I am beyond blessed with the experiences I have been given, and I want to reach out and gain more.
I want to challenge all of my followers to post their resolutions in the comments. It makes you more accountable when you write them down. Mine will be listed below and I look forward to reading yours!
