One Year Later...

I have been having a terrible case of writer's block on this particular post. I feel like one year later I should have something profound to say...and honestly I just don't. I'm terrible with the mushy gushy reflective type bare with me on my disjointed post, and please pretend that I am able to accurately communicate a deep and meaningful message ;)

Last year for the first time ever I made a New Year's Resolution. I had never made a resolution before just because it never seemed important to me and let's be honest...I would have never stuck to one of the cliche resolutions. Last year however, I was going through a transition period in my life. Lot's of things had changed and I was struggling with who I was and what I wanted out of life...and being a particularly private person I can't even believe that I am admitting that right now...but "What the heck...why not?" I truly felt that opening myself up to new experiences, pushing my limits and getting out of my comfort zone was exactly what I needed.

As I look back through the all of my posts and think about my life a year ago it's hard to believe how much I have truly changed and learned about myself through a New Year's Resolution that started out as somewhat of a joke. One year later I can confidently say I am happy...happy with my life, happy with my friends and family...and most importantly happy with myself and the person that I am...I can say with confidence that my resolution was a success. Not only did I overuse my saying "What the heck...why not?", post ridiculous blogs, and make amazing memories but I also found me :)


  1. I think you did pretty well with the "mushy gushy reflective type stuff." I feel like that's one of the perks to having an electronic catalog of your life--it's always there to remind you where you started and how far you've come! xoxo
