So Long, 2015.

My Nan used to tell me, “The older you get, the faster time flies.” (Your grandmother probably told you something similar; it’s a very grandmotherly thing to say.)

At 31, the months seem to pass at a speed somewhere around… supersonic?

Just when I got the hang of writing ‘2015’ on stuff, it’s over. And while I’m excited for the fresh start of a new year, I’m a little sad to see it go. You were a good egg, 2015!

I started the year determined to create more balance in my life, and I think I did a pretty good job following through. I made more time for rest, gave myself a good dose of grace whenever I needed it, practiced ‘not sweating the small stuff,’ and focused on nurturing a positive perspective because:

My goals for 2016 — not to be confused with resolutions; I hate those things — are pretty similar: I want to keep learning and growing, give more to others, be creative, and find joy in the simple things. Everything else will work itself out.

I’d also like to resuscitate this blog, because writing makes me happy and, you guys, I am so rusty.

I should probably exercise more, too, but… meh. ;)

Happy New Year, friends!

    Happy New Year! I have so many people tell me the same thing, and only being 21, time already flies fast enough. I hate it when they tell me “it only gets worse”. Oh well….I guess it teaches us to make the most of our time, right? :) Happy 2016!

    I much prefer setting goals to resolutions. I have several this year, some small, some big, but overall my goals each year are similar to yours – to keep expanding my horizons and find more acceptance and beauty in the world. Cheers to 2016!
