Welcoming 2015.

Thursday, January 1, 2015

As I look back on my post from last year about New Years Resolutions, I am finding that I have accomplished many of them. Now they seem like they were so simple, but at the time they were completely the opposite. Over 2014, I have heard many people's opinions on various topics and have been able to personally find a part of my own voice through the world's. I have gathered and collected my own thoughts and opinions that are..mine. Something I can call my own. These ideas that I have concocted in my own head that were inspired by people I don't even know. It's amazing in a way.

I have also figured out myself that I have so, so many different thoughts I want to share with the world, but it would be impossible to fit them all in a single post. Even if I tried, I'm sure I would forget a few.

This year, I want to simplify my life. I don't want to think ahead or think about the past. I want to live in the now, as cheesy as that sounds. You can't change your past. You can't control your future, only do things now that may direct it. There is no reason to worry about anything except what you are doing right now, today.

The one trend I loved this past year was self love. Even if most of it was in a cocky, arrogant form - it was such a great message. I am a firm believer in the fact that you cannot love other people until you learn to love yourself. I can make a whole other post on that though. Loving and taking care of yourself is honestly the most important part of living.

So here are a few of my New Years Resolutions.

1. To take care of myself. Drink a lot of water, eat whenever I'm hungry and stop whenever I'm full. Take off my makeup every night, brush my hair every day,
2. Treat myself.
3. Inspire others.
4. Make some new friends.
5. Stop judging people at first glance.
6. Be more optimistic.
7. Save up money.
8. Read and write every day.

I highly encourage you all to make a small set of your own resolutions for this year. Just some small, simple things. Like listen to new music - branch out. Try new foods. Google something you hear that sounds interesting to you! Learning a few new things everyday is what life's all about. Even if they seem stupid and useless at the time. No information is ever useless. Good luck and I wish you all the best 2015!
