I realize this post comes about a week later than it should, but for whatever reason I wasn't feeling inspired enough to want to reflect back on 2013. Honestly, it is probably because 2013 was a really tough year for me. I struggle sometimes with how much to share on this little blog as it will be imprinted into the foreverness that is the internet. I usually side with caution and keep it light, but today I want to just quickly remind you about how this tiny piece of my life is by no means a true reflection of it. It is me with a filter set to "sparkly days" only. This year was filled with hard decisions, heart break, an extremely complicated family situation, and a lot of self doubt. On the flip side of that ugly coin I realize I have so much to be grateful for. A safety net of friends that I consider family, a new beginning, and new self discoveries. I learned how much I can do on my own, and the depths of my bravery.
While I am happy to see 2013 in my rear view, I also hold so much excitement in my heart for 2014 (which will forever be know as "the year of weddings" for me as I already have four on the calendar). I have a few very simple resolutions that I want to hold myself to which are to be a good friend, a loving girlfriend, to believe in the good will of the universe, and to stay motivated to keep growing as a human being. Cheers.
