Welcome 2014

13 Jan

The new year always seems to sneak up on me. It’s not until a couple of weeks in that I realize I’m writing a new number at the end of the year, and when this happens, I like to reflect on all that took place. 2013 was an incredible year. At the beginning of last year I wrote, “This is the year I want to make things to happen. This is the year I want to do things for me and not feel guilty about it. This is the year I want to make myself the best I can be. In a nutshell, this is the year I need to grow up.”

Looking back, I feel like I did make things happen and finally did some things for me. I started a new job at a fantastic company, and I feel happy at work again. I moved into my own apartment, no roommates, no parents, just me. I ran my first 10K. I celebrated three years with my wonderful boyfriend. I turned 25. I tried some different experiences like celebrating the Passover Seder and going on my first hot air balloon ride. And I did my favorite thing, I traveled. Oh did I travel. I kicked off the year in Florida with Sebastian, enjoyed a quick trip to Arizona, stopped in Pittsburgh for a girls weekend, discovered Arkansas for the first time, walked the streets of Paris, drove through the South of France, spent quality time with my family in Colorado, checked out Milan and fell so in love with Rome.

Looking forward, this is the year I want to continually strive to find joy in life. The world has so much to offer, and I intend to take whatever it will give me. So yes, 2013 was great, but I have a feeling 2014 will be just as great. Cheers to 2014!
