Hello, 2016! Keeping it brief, this year’s catch-all everyday motto is #noexcuses2016. No more excuses for not having the time to write, not pursuing things that interest me, not making the time for seeing new places, not spending time with the people I love – it’s a bold commitment but the first day of the year does tend to bring this rare characteristic in most people. 2015 is arguably the best year I have had so far, a year of beautiful firsts I am truly grateful for: work and live outside as (dare I say it?) expat, travel to another continent, attend a wedding (FINALLY!), hop on and off planes like they were buses, see Taylor Swift live, and, like a total whirlwind that knocked my socks off – I fell in love.
Yup, 2015 is a Hall of Famer for sure. Surprisingly though, my general anxious self is eager to start this 2016 despite the new and unknown challenges and blessings it brings.
I have a feeling 2016 is the year that holds an infinite number of lessons that I am finally ready for. A year filled with falls, lessons and, hopefully, priceless victories. The past year has given me everything that I need to catapult me into this exciting new year and I am left with no more excuses. 2016 is the year I am finally all in. 2016, baby!
