For the past few days I tried to plan out my New Years Eve post. I wanted to do something cute, like list accomplishments and favourite moments/things from 2012. Easier said than done. I couldn't even figure out what my favourite book or movie had been - never mind heavier questions like biggest obstacles and challenges. All I can really say for sure is that 2012 has been one to remember - from graduation to traveling across the world, to struggling to find a job and then finding a great one. So much can happen in one year, and many of these memories seem so far away now.
I usually don't make New Years resolutions. To me, there is nothing overtly special about this time of year. There is no real reason to suddenly make a huge change, but I do think it's a fine excuse that I want to take advantage of. It's just like at the beginning of summer, when suddenly I'm motivated to get healthy and make smoothies.
This year, I'd like to live with intention from day to day. I want to save money so that I can afford things that I truly want. I want to travel and enjoy every moment to the fullest. I want to stress less and enjoy spare time more. I want to blog when I feel like it, but also been more organized to get the result that I want. My blog is a very important and special hobby to me. Like any hobby, passion can come and go. Lately I have felt less interested in it, and I'd rather just relax than force as many posts as I normally would have. But I know my interest will resume. During my holiday break I had time to catch up on all my favourite blogs and had time to feel excited again! Sometimes I get pretty lazy with fashion, but suddenly I feel the urge for a bit of a makeover! Mine usually aren't very sudden, so it likely won't be noticeable - but I am developing a clearer idea of what style I want. It will have aspects of my current style while also adding in something new.
All in all, I'm excited for the New Year. It is the first year where I have no real grasp on what will be ahead of me, but I'm looking forward to see what is in store.
Happy New Year, everyone!
