2014 was my best year yet. Reminiscing all of the good that came out of 2014 is such an incredible feeling. Although a little emotional saying goodbye, I know 2015 will be even better because it’ll be action packed and full of people I love! I think the year-end calls for a plethora of self reflection: What did I do that made my year so great? Who contributed to my happiness? Who didn’t? Why was I so happy? How can I keep this feeling going forever?
Having a deep understanding of what makes you tick on a personal level grounds you. It makes you take a step back and prioritize your life. If something or someone makes you happy, fill your life with them/it. If someone takes away from your best self, drop them and move on (no really….move on). If only life was that easy, right?
I am not crazy (well most of the times I am, but I have never met an awesome person who wasn’t completely crazy in their own way anyways). I know life knocks you out of the driver seat more times than not; however, if you know in your heart of hearts what makes you happy, and you follow it, you are destined for eternal greatness and everlasting happiness. It took me a little bit of time to figure that one out, but I have never been happier since realizing it, and when I say realizing it, I mean truly internalizing and living by it.
What am I most thankful for this year?
Everyone I love is healthy, and for that I am eternally grateful.
As I reflect on 2014, and how special it was to me, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite pictures from each month this year, and the memory behind it.
Thank you for allowing me to reflect on my year, thank you for supporting my blog, and thank you for being the best readers I have ever had the pleasure to connect with. It means so much to me that you took time out of your day to read my thoughts and words of wisdom. I hope I have inspired you to look back on 2014 with loving eyes, and duplicate it in 2015. We cannot predict the future, but we can take accountability for our actions, the situations we put ourselves into, and the people we allow into our lives.
