And with that another year is over. It’s time to say goodbye to 2013 and everything that it brought, and time to welcome 2014 and all the things that it brings. The good, the bad and the ugly.
2013 was a good year for me. I achieved a fair bit. I performed in a show for a Theatre Festival in Brisbane. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Theatre with a Major in Event Management. I ran my first ever 10km marathon. I jumped off a cliff. I had a fantastic holiday in New Zealand, Melbourne and Sydney. Met some amazing people and have made some amazing memories. All in all 2013 was a good year. But I am ready for more!
I think 2013 was my prep year. It was my year to prepare myself for what 2014 holds. I think it has done it’s purpose, because I am ready! I am excited for the unknown of what this year will bring. I am leaving my fears and anxiety in the past, and embracing the future.
It’s funny to think that 12 months have passed since we made all those new years resolutions, and 11 months ago all those resolutions either failed, or we simply forgot about them. That’s why this year I have no resolutions. While lying on a roof waiting for the new year to come in I came to realise something. I don’t need a new years resolution to make changes in my life, I just need myself. If I want to change something, I will. If I don’t like something, I will change it and make it into something that I do. If I do like it, I’ll do what I can to keep it, and if it disappears, I’ll be more than happy with the memories that it leaves behind. I just want to be happy and smiling in 2014. I want to do exciting things. I want each day to be an adventure.
I am ready. Are you?
