I am a strong believer in the power of new beginnings.
January 1st is usually that time of year where we all make impossible promises to ourselves and just hope that we can forgive ourselves enough to try again next year. It’s all fine. At least you’re planning.
New Year and birthdays are good opportunities to both reflect on past achievements (and failures) and look ahead. They can serve as an opportunity to focus on what you want to achieve and who you want to become.
This past year has been one crazy roller coaster ride for me. I don’t feel myself being the same person I was even a few months ago, and I am completely fine with it. That being said, I hope to change my focus and live a little this next year. I want a more adventurous, balanced, and fulfilling life. Here’s a list based on my dreams, maybe someone will feel inspired by some points.
