January 07, 2013


I spent most of 2012 just wishing I could do a Rip Van Winkle, sleep under a willow tree and wake up a year after.

I just wanted a new start, a clean slate.
I know there are still going to be times when the world feels crushing, pop a pill, with non-stop intrigues, pop another pill and endless gossip (still want a pop?) but the success of envisioning and  achieving a new perspective gives me hope and determination that I can give myself a clean slate if and when I ever need one in the future.

I have welcomed this year with open arms, bitch slapping 2012 on how awful it was for me and know that there's nowhere to go from here but up.
Gone are the Debbie Downers, and honestly, my slate really does feel clean. A new year, a new set of memories and so far, the whole 7 days of 2013 have been far better.
I feel more at peace, more ready to take on what this new view of life will bring. It honestly feels as though, for the first time, I could set my mind to how I could be, and it’s working.
A couple of notes to myself:
  • Recycle! I haven’t shopped for anything new to update my closet (I’m still amazed with how I have not gotten anything for myself during the holidays)
  • Stock my shelf and bedside table with more books
  • Surround myself with people who I truly love and miss, vice-versa
  • Honeymoon with God more
  • Communicate with family more
There you go! No resolutions, just a couple of notes to keep in mind!
Is it too early to celebrate? I think so!
