A new year is a time for reflection, whether you like to sit down and write concrete goals or simply create a mantra to live by. It is a holiday that is completely about you. It is your chance to dream big and think critically to make changes and to learn. It is a time to look at the past and explore the possibilities of the future.
This year for me is not about setting concrete goals or trying to accomplish a checklist of things, but it is about focusing on me and developing into the person I have always wanted to become. Loving the people in my life, saying yes to adventure, focusing on the important, and spending my days happy. I want to feel that I am living my life. I no longer want to spend my days yearning for the weekend but instead waking up every morning excited about the adventure in store for that day. And I think by living with the new sense of glee for life, everything else will begin to fall into place. Life begins with you and how you look at life, so this year I plan to start each day with an open heart and mind.
I've discovered that writing is a method of reflection and self-exploration for me. When I write a post on my blog about my life it really allows me to reflect on the situation and sometimes it even helps me to decide what action to take next. So this year I plan to pour my heart and my energy into my blog. I want everything about it to reflect the goodness of my life and the beauty around me.
So here's to a happy, healthy, and exciting 2017!
