I’ve had a lot of new beginnings in life; new cities, new relationships, new jobs, new hobbies. I’ve lived a fairly decent life and I’ve been blessed with great friends, great memories, travel, health, free will, a stable job, a handsome boyfriend, and the ability to remain optimistic despite life’s struggles. I am lucky. I don’t think I say that often enough. Writing comes easier to me when I’m sad, or lonely, or depressed, or feel I’ve been wronged in some way. Complaining makes for better entertainment somehow. But the truth of the matter is I’m happy. For this reason I’ve decided to make another new beginning for myself in the form of a new blog; a fresh start.
In 2013 I hope to accomplish a lot, mostly personally and physically. I find myself once again deeply immersed in my passion for dance and yoga, two things that I’ve neglected over the last few years. It feels good to be back to what I love. I’ve already accomplished things I didn’t think were possible. It makes me realize that age really is just a number. I can do anything I want regardless if I’m 23, 33, or 43 if I put in enough effort and dedication. I feel strong. There are also some exciting trips in my future: Vegas this weekend, driving up the east coast this summer, and Colorado in the fall. I hope to share them with all of you.
And another little tidbit, at the recommendation of a friend I started a video project using the app 1 Second Everyday. You should check it out, it’s pretty cool. It has more or less forced me to look for that one happy moment in each day and will likely result in 365 1 second videos of my dog, my boyfriend, Bloody Mary’s, and my friends wearing tiaras. There are so many wonderful things in life. It feels good to stop and acknowledge them, even just for a second.
In any event, thanks for sticking around.
