2:45 AM. Weird time to write a blog post? I know. I actually am quite inspired when I am awake past midnight. Maybe the inspired part of my brain is the delusional one that only comes out at night I guess… Anyways!
As the end of the year approaches, we see all kinds of Top 10 lists and Best Ofs whether it’s on TV or on the internet. I really enjoy watching and reading them so it inspired me to do my own retrospective on 2014. (Be sure to check out my next article which will be dedicated to my 2014 beauty and lifestyle favorites!)
A defining moment
2014 was clearly a defining moment in my life. I graduated in April and said goodbye to my (
wild and reckless) college years – well, at least for now. I thought it was an important step for me to look at this whole year and reflect. I closed the chapter of my teenage years, said goodbye to some dear friends and finally entered the “adult world”, without being one yet. Work, routine, fear, and even loneliness sometimes. Life changed and dragged me with it but I guess I was not prepared for that sudden turn of events.
I started working not so long after graduation and I was quite relieved because I love it and I wouldn’t have to experience that fear of the unknown. I wouldn’t have to answer that horrible question adults always love to ask you: “So, what’s next ?”
With all those changes I experienced, I finally got that time to think about what I really want. It helped me define my life goals and projects, and I feel like I know myself better. I came across old blog posts and stories I wrote a long time ago and I found this one note I made for myself, asking for a retrospective on the changes in my life and within myself. I won’t go into details, but I highly encourage anyone who wants to do it. Sometimes it hurts to think about the past and those old (good or bad) memories, but you need to be in harmony and peace with yourself to go forward.
I was looking for some answers for a few years but now it all seem so far away in my head. I have finally come to terms with my past and I am ready to start that new chapter.
New projects, new blog, new apartment, new job, new life. 2015, here we go!
