With a new year comes a time of re-evaluation.
Re-evaluation of ourselves, our lives, our goals, and the progress we're making on these things.
I'm not one to make new-year resolutions but I do like to take time to think about what the next year will mean to me and what I want to get out of it.
For example, I know that this year I will be facing a lot of new challenges in my personal and professional life. Having just graduated college I will be moving out of my parents house, paying my own rent, supporting myself by finding a job, making new friends, and navigating the "real" post-academic world. A daunting and stressful process for sure but one that is also filled with unimaginable possibilities that bring excitement and suspenseful anticipation.
There are also more personal goals I'm setting for myself that will be challenging as well. Things like meditation, getting back into yoga, the on-going process of self love and acceptance. As well as things like making time and finding money to travel, becoming smarter financially and continuing to educate myself now that it's not forced upon me everyday- something that I'm finding takes an enormous amount of time, dedication, and commitment.
These are all the things I'm working towards in 2017 and as the year goes on I'm hoping this space will be somewhere I can be check in on my progress, share projects and ideas, and help and inspire others to do the same.
