Aaaaahhhh, it feels good to be typing in this space again. After an extra long, much needed, winter
blogging nap holiday, I’m thrilled to be back at it. Back to Boston, back to work, back to blogging, back to home renovating and wedding planning. I feel well rested, re-inspired, and ready to jump into the swing of things with a whole new year ahead.
Naturally, with a new year comes reflection and so over the last few weeks I’ve thought a lot about all that was accomplished and celebrated this past year. Of course, I also mentally revisited the list of things I can still tweak and improve on personally and professionally. Although I’m happy to say this past year was the best one yet, this post isn’t about the experiences of 2013. It’s about the present and what can be done in the current year of 2014.
As I get older, my thoughts around New Years resolutions shift. I was once an obsessive writer of new personal vows and resolutions, to then, in December end the year disappointed that few were officially upheld. Instead of falling flat in the year to come, I’ve decided to put my focus and energy into slightly shifting the way I live my daily life, instead of wanting to completely restructure my routine.
My goal is to live a more intentional life.
I want 2014 to be a year of simplifying. A year where I distinguish between what I really value and what has become clutter. I want to thoughtfully “sort through” and “fine tune” elements of my existence from the relationships I’ve formed to what hangs in my closet. I know this year will be the absolute best yet and I want to enjoy it while being thoughtful and purposeful every step of the way.
Cheers to an extremely exciting year ahead! xo
