the start of a new year always feels like such a special time to me.
a huge open canvas full of possibilities.
i feel differently this year, not that there is any shortage of possibilities, but in the sense that i have no idea what it is that i want to get out of the next year of my life.
i feel optimistic and excited but i also feel extremely conflicted. i believe that what's "getting to me" is the speed in which the last year passed. it honestly feels like it was the fastest year of my life and that is certainly not what i want.
so far, when asked what my new years resolution will be, or my big goal for the year i have responded with "i just want to enjoy this year and learn to let go" and i am not entirely sure what i mean by that either.
i read a quote recently that really stuck with me...
"Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about."
you know what the really funny thing is...
after reading that quote the first thing that actually came to my mind was this blog.
that surprised me.
one thing is for certain, instead of starting 2016 with the usual list making and goal planning... i plan to start the new year with some serious contemplation and soul searching instead, and for the first time in a long time i am going to begin with low expectations and just see where this beautiful life takes me.
