Again, another year has passed by in what felt like no time at all. It's no surprise we all choose the last day of the year to reflect on the past 12 months. We're all a year older, smarter, and richer (in experiences, but I hope you're getting some of that $$$ too). It's time to say good-bye to 2014.
I haven't been thinking too much about New Year resolutions. This is weird cause I spent a good eight pages worth of my Moleskine last year detailing every goal I wanted to accomplish. I will honestly say now that no, I have not eaten much healthier or have cooked dinner once a week for my family. I also stopped consciously starting days with a positive thought in like...364 days.
I am not giving up on New Year resolutions just because I failed some of my goals. This whole "New Year, New Me" thing obviously does not work out (for me, anyways. You do you). Just the fact that fitness gym's make most of their earnings in January by selling year-long memberships that often go unused goes to show how little we commit to the goals we set for the year. So... this year I guess I'm just winging it.
I'm not going into 2015 completely blinded. What I know is I'm going to have another crazy year filled with huge transitions and changes. I learned in 2014 that that's okay. Things change and it's nothing to freak out about it. The changes usually lead to better and bigger things. Like, clearing my closet of clothes from middle school led me to find $5 in a sweater pocket. That was fun and exciting. Bigger and better!!!
2014 was a pretty long and tough year. From college applications, to going to college abroad (in freaking Australia), to having my closest friends move away and annoying issues with my health, this year has been insane. But, I've learned a lot about myself and that's what matters.
I cannot wait to get to Boston for my next semester of college. Another big transition and I have high hopes it's going to be a good one.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you continue to do the things that make you a happier and better person.
