Just a Thought…

Do you ever just get half way through a novel and then realize you’re pretty sure you’ve figured out the ending…? And then you feel like, is there any point in finishing it or should I see it through to check if my assumptions were correct? What do you do in this kind of situation?

New Year. New Me?

I haven’t posted in a while mostly because I haven’t been inspired to write anything lately as well as the madness of finishing up the semester and properly enjoying the holidays. But now that its officially 2015 I am ready to turn a new page and hope to post more regularly for my handful of followers. x When I consider the new year, of course I am tempted to make resolutions and promises to myself of changes I will make but I know I will inevitably fall short of my own expectations because I mean really… Has one day really made that much a difference? Probably not. I don’t feel much different than I did yesterday…

But I do feel inspired. And I guess that’s all that really matters. No I probably won’t exercise everyday or be super organized, never procrastinate or stress, or completely rid myself of a boring wardrobe or the negative influences in my life but I will try my best. I will try to look forward with a positive attitude, with grace and drive. To make a difference or at least do something a little different. I begin the new year, keeping in mind a mantra that I have adapted from an Amy Poehler quote: I want to be someone who does things. I don’t want to be someone anymore who judges or talks about what people do. I want to be someone and be around people who dream and support and do things…

And whether or not I accomplish everything I set out to or I make mistakes along the way, I must remember to cherish these moments and take them in stride because these times too will pass and one day I’ll look back and think, “I made it through”.
