Time for review!

Last year, I decided I am done with resolutions. They're silly & pointless and almost never actually get completed. However, that is not to be mistaken for a little reflection. I think December/ January is the perfect time to actually step back & take a look at yourself.
Really look at yourself. Who you are as a person, your contributions to society & others in your life, the people you surround yourself with. In December, you have an entire year of fresh experiences to think about and a whole new year to look forward to! Does what you remember make you feel good about yourself? Then make a change! Confused? Stop trying to convince yourself of things you don't truly believe. Happy? Then, go you! Keep being you :)
This year, I feel a little of all those things. So I've decided, I'm going to stop feeling sorry for myself & bring back the parts of me & my life that make me happy! (As well as get rid of a few that don't.) I've never been one to really follow my head (imagine that), but for some reason, that's ALL I've been doing the last year! I seem to make everyone else happy, which is a good thing, but is it really worth sacrificing my own happiness? I think not.
Last year I had Africa to look forward to. This year, I have scuba diving, Key Largo, friend's marriages, & a summer full of new friends (and a little bit of much needed time off of work)! 2014 has barely even started & I'm already feeling a hell of a lot better about it then 2013. So, although you may think I'm taking the easy way out with no resolutions, I don't think anything can really beat having a sound piece of mind and a much better outlook on your life :)

So, I would like to make a final farewell to 2013 & resolutions, a big thank you for a little reflection time, and a warming welcome to 2014!

Happy New Year everyone!

Pep Talk

Some days, girl needs a serious pep talk. Who better to do that than myself?!I've always been a very "convincing" person and have needed no help pumping myself up, but lately I've been really struggling in that area for some reason. Stepping foot in Europe with no idea of where I was going, not the slightest clue as to where my friends were, and not speaking a single word of the local language reminded me that I'm awesome. I resorted to (what I honestly think is my most redeeming quality) of building myself up. Though as an adult, with a lot more failures under my belt, I've noticed this skill gets harder and harder to maintain. So I came up with the most awesomely awesome pep talks girl can come up with!
For the plethora of times I'm having a shit day, I just tell myself... Girl, you're only 25. You have a head of gorgeously thick hair and no a single wrinkle yet. Not to mention, those lips.  My friends are all having babies and getting married! Blah bl…
