Happy New Years y’all! I seriously can’t get over how fast 2017 went by. It was a year that held so many beautiful memories for me that I will cherish for a lifetime. One of the biggest highlights was marrying my high school sweetheart. We looked forward to the day for years and it flew by so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was planning my beautiful wedding and now it’s a past memory. Thankfully we have some amazing photos that captured every second of the day which I’ll be doing a post on later. Although this was the highlight of my year so many other things have made it one to remember. I got into grad school, got to celebrate love (bestie got married and bestie got engaged), got to spend lots of time with family and friends and of course, travel (my favorite)!
Last year we were able to travel to so many new beautiful places and truly take advantage of this beautiful world we have to explore and for that I’m extremely grateful. I’m actually writing this blog post on our honeymoon flight to Buenos Aires. As we’ve been exploring Argentina on our honeymoon, I’ve been reminded constantly of just how blessed we are. We have so many opportunities in this life. One of the biggest advantages we have is to experience new people, cultures, food, and scenery. All of these things are priceless.
I’m looking forward to checking out some new countries this year on my bucket list because you only live once, right?
As I think of the “new year, new me” saying, I remind my self that every year you’re the same but you always have the opportunity to be a better version of yourself. So this year will be a new year, same me but I plan to work on becoming the best version of myself. It seems easier said than done but I’m hopeful that I can do it. Any progress is better than no progress at all. I feel motivated because I’m reading a great book right now on the plane that I actually got as a gift from my administration for Christmas. It’s called “Perfectly Yourself” by Matthew Kelly. It’s a real game changer reading things that really relate to you and discovering the best version of yourself. One thing that caught my attention so far is that for every tiny accomplishment we should be proud of ourselves. Huge goals are awesome but small baby step goals are also huge accomplishments in loving yourself and becoming a happier person. I’m looking forward to finishing the book and sharing some pointers with y’all.
