I haven't posted in a little while, procrastination and the stress of life have got the best of me. My last post was way back in June and so much has happened since then: graduated from uni, turned 22, started a Master's degree, went on holiday and so much more. It's been a an intense few months and I feel like I've been on an emotional roller-coaster for much of it. I've had lots of ups and a few downs but I guess in life you have to take the rough with the smooth (I just wish there was much more smooth than rough!). My quest to find myself took another route as I realised that as life progresses and as I change my patterns of evaluation and reflection all needed to change to.
Now it's already two weeks into 2013 and on the whole there's nothing much for me to complain about. I've never really been the one for resolutions per se but I've liked the feeling of drawing the line under a year and closing the door on some things. This year I have challenged myself to change my mindset; I want to develop an attitude of positivity and appreciation in spite of the hardship or adversity I might face. That said, this isn't always an easy task to accomplish and I've already stumbled in this goal. However, I'm not going to beat myself up when I falter, I will just try and readdress the balance and seek a positive meaning in the things I may experience. I'm a strong believer in the power of positive thinking and counting my blessings. Therefore, this year I hope that I can be appreciative and content with all the good things I have in my life (no matter how small or trivial they may seem).
A new year is not the only time for growth, refinement or fresh starts, this is something we can all achieve at any time. I don't know what 2013 holds in store for me but I hope to be the best person I can be and make the most of all the days I'm given.
