So I spent a lot of time thinking about my post today on New Year’s Eve. See, I’m not the biggest fan of this holiday and that’s because it always feels a little negative. It’s notably because we’re constantly looking to the future and trying to perfect ourselves, sure that it will reflect on the next year. New Year is all about change and I’m not sure that I want to. 2014 has been a year of change, but I’m the happiest I’ve been in a while. When I was looking at all the New Year posts deciding what to write and what to say I found this quote and it speaks volumes to me,
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
I think that is probably the most wonderful quote to sum up my thoughts on New Year. Why do we sit wishing for a better year. I’m going to take it day by day, taking each new experience as it comes. This year I’m not setting any resolutions, but instead I’m going to remember why 2014 was so wonderful, and how I, can enjoy 2015 even more.

I cannot wait to share my reads of 2015 and to read about yours! 🙂
Have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve and I hope your New Year is an awesome one!
I agree! Why constantly reflect on improvements when we can just focus on the good things that make us happy? I’m not a believer in New Years Resolutions anyway. They always fade out, every year.
