Are you ready people? The typical new year posts are coming!
I am so ready for this year to be over haha! 2013 has been rough but its also been one of the most rewarding years of my life!
I have a love hate relationship with 2013. It kicked my ass and it was one of those years where you are forced to take a serious hard core look at yourself, your past, present, future and your surroundings. I think those times in life where you really have to re-group are the most important milestones of your life. Years like this one are the ones that mold and shape who you are and who you are becoming.
Looking back on what my "goal" was for 2013 I accomplished it! This is what I posted on my tumblr last year....
"I feel its important to remember the past.
5 years ago I would have given anything to forget everything that was going on in life, ignore it, and forget it. Now I realize the importance of remembering everything you have been through, its important to remember that life happened to you, it continues to happen to you, and the way it is and has impacted you. Not only is it important to remember the good times but the shitty times.
I feel like my life is broken up into chapters in a book, each chapter is a different opportunity and a different life experience. I feel each chapter gives me the opportunity to be someone else, go through different things, and live life in different ways from all different points of view. I feel all the different lives I have lived and will continue to live are going to be a huge part of who I will be someday.
Its good to reflect on the different chapters and lives we live and to think and remember how our lives have changed and how we have molded because of these chapters. It is important to be grateful for these life experiences.
I feel I have worked so hard to get where I am today and because of that I have become to focused on being positive that I have forgotten to find the beauty in the negative.
My goal for 2013 is to create a new chapter in my life and to document my experiences and how I felt in all the different chapters I have lived."
-I created a new milestone and a new chapter.
-I found the beauty in the negative.
-I ruled out stress by accepting and acknowledging that it exists, and by then taking control of my life and my surroundings.
-I used expression to get through tough and discouraging times.
-Figured out what being an artist is really all about and did my first art show!
-Made new friends.
-I documented my experiences from January 1 to December 25! I filmed bits and pieces. I edited it, added music, etc...and taa daa!
Here it is...
Love you always!
