Not only has 2017 arrived, but today marks my 35th year of life. THIRTY FUCKING FIVE!
Don’t think for a second I’m going to feed you my “new year, new me” bullshit. I didn’t just wake up a new person today or on January 1st. (as Courtney Kerr said best) I’m still the same girl who is guaranteed to drink a little too much + drop a few too many f bombs + has some questionable morals + eats pizza on the regular.
Nothing has changed.
I’m also not going to write about my “new years resolution” either. You either hate resolutions or you embrace them. I do neither.
What the new year + turning 35 did, is allow me to look at my high’s + low’s of 2016! It was a roller coaster ride at times! Full of incredible experiences, but also hands down the biggest challenges. Extraordinary highs paired with some of the lowest lows. In a whirlwind of events, it has taken my breath away, I’ve swallowed A LOT of pride and had my ass truly humbled.
But with challenge comes growth and I truly feel like I’ve learned more about myself this year than the past 34 combined. I’m excited to start new year with new goals + plans + perspective.
So what are my goals you ask? Oh right, you didn’t. But if you were to I would tell you this…..
I know it’s just a word. But, It’s a good word.
No, I’m not going to sell my car and only have 100 belongings and get all bat shit crazy minimalist on you. What I want to do, is take a minimalist approach to my day-to-day. My routines + my time + possessions + purchases + so much more. There’s no better feeling, to me personally, then ridding myself of the unnecessary + excess. Think – Trim the fat.
Right here is where I’d normally insert the Wikipedia or Urban Dictionary meaning, but they sucked.
Have you heard of The Minimalist? It’s a documentary that’s been featured on: ABC + NBC + Wall Street Journal + New York Times + NPR.
