Ah, 2014....you were one of the weirdest years ever. I don't have many words for this year. I'm just glad that 2015 is just about here. This past year wasn't necessarily bad, I think it was a year of very quiet change for me. Change that was hard to see and change that I didn't even realize was happening at the time. I think 2015 will be a year of taking all of this change and putting it into action. It's been a year of deep thought on all fronts of my life...my job, do I want to move, finding a balance in my personal life, wanting to date again, money woes, wanting to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. All of these things have been on my mind this year more so than usual and I've made quite a few preliminary steps to make 2015 a big year of change.
But with all of those things on my mind, I all but disappeared this past year. That's what my brain tends to do when it gets overloaded...just shut down. And while I think that this was a very necessary year, it sure wasn't conducive to blogging and keeping up with email. One thing I've taken from this year is that I have to take care of me and make sure I'm happy if I'm going to achieve the things I want in life.
This means making time for myself in 2015 to read more, blog more, email more, do the things I love again. I'm thinking of starting a new book review format for myself to make reviewing books more appealing to me so that I'm more motivated to do that again. I read SO MANY awesome books this year that I never told everyone about and hopefully I can do some of them justice with my end of the year review.
So goals for 2015....do things that make myself happy, reconnect with people I love, get in shape, read only books that I love, bake amazing things, move my finances forward not backwards, be happier in my job however I have to achieve that, be open to love, smile as often as possible, grow as many things as I can and appreciate them. I wish all of these things for all of you as well in 2015...all of this and more :) See you on the other side!
