“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Socrates

It has been a long, short, bizarre, beautiful year filled with numerous ups and downs. Spending time at home for the holidays has provided me with a quiet place to reflect on all that I have been through…the struggles I have overcome, situations I could have handled better, and relationships that have come and gone (for better or for worse). Most importantly, it has been a time to make plans for the new year and the goals and aspirations I have that’ll keep me moving forward…personally, professionally, creatively, and in pursuit of true happiness.

It is also a time that has reminded me of the countless blessings that are ever-present in my day-to-day life: family, friends, freedom, adventures, and all of the beauty that surrounds me each and every time I walk out my door. One thing I started doing this year is documenting my entire life in a private journal. It has not only been one of the best forms of therapy, but also a great way to remind myself of all the little things that have happened. Those tiny moments when I felt my heart break, fleeting occurrences that helped paved the path to finding love again after a tough breakup, the stupid jokes which caused me to laugh so hard I was brought to tears, the times I stopped myself from crying by remembering that I am ultimately as strong / cool / awesome as I want to be…and, most importantly, the pivotal moment where I made a personal vow to strive to only become better from here on out (resolution#1).

Here’s to another great year gone by, and an even better one to come. To taking the painful, sometimes embarrassing, but ultimately invaluable lessons I’ve learned and actually applying them to my life….

The way I see it is if you work hard, love hard, never stop learning, exist humbly, treat others with genuine kindness and respect, listen (truly listen), and refuse to settle for less than you know you deserve, ultimately good things will come. It’s a little thing called karma and, in my opinion, this “thing” is very real. Here is to a brighter 2015 for everyone. Mad love to you all and

    Red jumpsuit! So good! I have been seeing so many black jumpsuits, it is fun to see someone wearing red. Whoever took these photos did an amazing job, too. And the hotel looks pretty cool, I like the windows!

    Wow, this is a really pretty post!! I love the classic pearls. And I think white sheets are where it’s at. Simple, classic, and dreamy. Looks like a cool place to stay.

    I couldn’t agree more with you on everything that you’ve reflected on in this post!
    I also do believe that 2015 will be the most amazing year in my life yet.
    This whole past year has thought me so much and I want to bring all of the wisdoms and
    learned lessons into a new year and create the best of times!
    Good luck in doing the same :)
