2015 was the year of so many huge life changes for me, but it was also the year of acceptance. I fully embraced the "give zero fucks" mindset early on in the year, and just ran with it. For the most part, it has been refreshing to let go of things. On the other hand, it became almost too easy to stop caring about important things. My finances are in the toilet, along with my self-esteem. I often forget to eat certain meals, which results in over-eating later on. I am up too late, and I over sleep. I go out too much (hence my sad checking account), I party too hard, and in the end I am an exhausted, sad cat.
Things have been slowly changing in the past few weeks though. I have been staying home a little bit more during the week, I am actually using my gym membership, and I am keeping an eye on my spending. I have started making a lot of plans for the next month or so, and although they are mostly small plans, I am thankful to finally see past the end of the week. I am greatly looking forward to New Years Eve, it is sure to be a blast, but I am also very much looking forward to January. I am planning on taking a 5-6 week break from most social gatherings, and focusing on getting my finances in order, going to the gym, moving the rest of my belongings to one place, and then sorting and donating what I no longer need. I fully intend on seeing friends; gym time & coffee dates with my party cats, movie nights in with Dani & co, and of course catching up with some of my friends who I haven't seen in awhile.
Most importantly, I am going to try my best to hammer out the rough draft to this short story I have been kicking around in my head for years. I also have some photo shoots that I want to get started on for the blog that I am really excited about! Which brings me to another goal; giving this blog a little make-over. I have been tinkering around with a few layouts, and I am hoping to have something new (nothing too crazy) up and running when I come back (I am shooting for around Valentine's Day). It is a great feeling to become excited again about something you are passionate about. So that being said, I am going to keep this short and sweet and leave off here. 2016 will be the year of becoming brave, and I look forward to it.
See you in 2016, kittens!
