So I sat down earlier today to write a New Year’s Eve post. I figured I would have a lot to say on themes about life and its changes and growing up and moving forward and so on and so forth. This, however, was not the case. I just stared blankly at the screen for half an hour and then put my computer away, feeling defeated.
I think that sometimes that’s the problem with holidays, (mind you this is coming from a girl who loves holidays…all of them, and won’t ever turn down a reason to celebrate), but sometimes you get excited because you feel like they’re going to draw all of this inspiration and introspection out of you just because it’s a special day…but that doesn’t always happen.
I’ve come up with a few concrete resolutions like keeping my room from looking like this:
As well as actually putting these to some use at the gym:
Most of my resolutions are rather vague though, like being a little more focused, a little more organized, a little more present to the moment I’m in. I think that if there is anything 2012 taught me it is just how unfocused and forgetful I can be, and how often it can be an inconvenience to the people around me. I don’t expect to make great leaps and bounds overnight, but maybe by next NYE I’ll remember to leave my car keys at home before getting on the plane for Philadelphia. (Sorry, mom.)
Happy New Year’s y’all. May blessings abound in 2013.
