Happy New Year, friends! I hope that you ended 2014 on a high note. Kind of makes it easier to start the new year, right?
My life has been full of changes and surprises lately. It's all good things, but I am just figuring out what works and what doesn't, and rearranging priorities to get everything in. I'll tell you a bit more on that later - once things finally settle and start to feel real - but until then...
What kind of resolution(s) did you make this year?
I actually did not put a lot of thought into resolutions this year, other than deciding that what I really needed to work on was being less firm with my thoughts and more open to changes in both environment and decisions.
Sometimes I feel too rigid, and other times, too lost in analyzing the minutiae. So what do I end up doing? Getting stressed unnecessarily. Embracing too many wild preconceptions and stifling my creativity.
Last year (whoa! 2014 was SO LAST YEAR!) my family and I traveled a lot. Like, a ridiculous amount of family travel. I want to do even more of that this year, because I believe travel really helps to open up the mind - and the future - to possibilities, differences, and other positive qualities.
In 2014, my family and I traveled to:
- South Carolina
- Disney World (several times!) and other Orlando, FL attractions
- Nashville and Chattanooga, TN
- Washington, DC
- Las Vegas
- and even embarked on a two-week road trip to Disneyland in California with a stop at the Grand Canyon!
It was AMAZING to see all of the things that we did on our journeys, and I am so ready for even more sights, sounds, tastes, and people.
So I'm resolving to be more open. What do you hope to get out of this new year?
p.s. I am also planning on blogging here at least twice a week from now on, hopefully more. And seriously, you guys?! I cannot wait to share some great news with you all! <3 <3 <3
