Hello, 2013: A Quirky List of Resolutions for a Brand New Year!Thursday, January 03, 2013
Now that the bubbly champagne (or sparkling grape juice in my case) has been guzzled and the confetti glitter has been swept up, it feels appropriate to formally welcome 2013. The beginning of a brand new year has always been an exciting time for me. Just like the beginning of each new week or the start of a brand new month. For me, it's a blank canvas just waiting for all of my adventures & misadventures.
To be honest, I'm quite sad to see 2012 go. It was a tough & trying year for me to say the least, yet it was filled with some pretty amazing moments. It was a transition period for my life...almost a make it or break it situation. And in retrospect, I'm certain that I definitely learned many lessons and gently grew more than I may have realized at the time. I have been struggling to return to my blog writing for the past few months, and I feel that part of it has been a mental block which appeared midway through the year when I was struggling with health problems & tremendous amounts of stress. It has been difficult for me to address the situation, and I have found that avoiding my blog altogether has been my way to cope. Now that the New Year has begun, I feel dedicated to rediscovering my passion for writing. I have known many people who simply abandon their endeavors, yet I cannot let go of my blog. It has been a part of me for several years and has gotten me through some incredibly difficult moments in my life.
I'm an avid believer in resolutions. It's more about creating & cultivating who you are as a person rather than simply improving yourself on the outside. I enjoy creating monthly resolutions as well because I feel that we are always changing & growing and our resolutions should do the same. Last week, I sat down at my desk with a huge cup of chai tea and composed a list of resolutions for 2013. It only took me about 15 minutes to come up with a mammoth list of goals, dreams, and wishes. I decided that I would just share my top 10, so here they are...
What are your resolutions for 2013? I would love to hear from you!
Lots of love & positivity,
