2011 was a life-changing year for me. I moved to Los Angeles. I started a life. It was zen and magical.
But, 2012…2012 has been a year of challenges. I was pushed, pulled, shaped, tested and contorted beyond reason. 2012 was a year of feeling completely lost. Losing my direction and reason. Falling to my knees before life and asking, why? What? Where? Thinking: “I know I’m meant for more, but, sweet life, you’ve lost me…I’ve lost myself.”
But here I am, coming out at the end of it happier than, arguably, I’ve ever been. I just can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for me. I won’t be praying for a calm ocean, but the strength required to survive a choppy one. I want to spread happiness and positivity. I want to change the world for the better. I want to feel beautiful and thrive. I want to practice at least one random act of kindness every single day. I want to find my reason, my calling. I want to be nice to people, because that’s what’s always made me happiest. I want to find time to meditate every single day.
This post isn’t about what 2012 has been, but about the inifinte possibility that lay before us when we begin a new year – we all need a fresh start.
So, stick around. I’m just getting started.
Happy, happy, happy, new year.
