1. I pray I never lose that zest for life.
Life is truly so beautiful, and I hope I will constantly be fascinated by the big and small things in my day to day life.
I pray my eyes will always be filled with amazement and wonder, that my heart never grows cold and indifferent.
2013 has shown me that there is so much to hope for, so much to dream about, and my goal for this year is to continue to dream fiercely and unapologetically.
"Look for the good in people, not the evil; strengths and not weaknesses -- most of us find what we search for."
"I was within and without - simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. Personal growth
I have yet to discover so many things about my ever-changing personality. And as I do that, I want to grow to become more comfortable in this body of mine - more accepting of everything that encompasses who I am, from my mind, body and my views. I think part of becoming more confident of your identity also includes knowing that you are entitled to walk away from anything that doesn't serve you, or agree with your beliefs.
I want to learn to exercise that right this year.
I actually drafted this post a couple of days ago, at the beginning of the new year, and what's terrifying is that I've already begun to see how these wishes are slowly becoming more apparent in my life.
I'm both excited and slightly hesitant to embark on the new year, but here goes, and may you all have eyes to see the beauty in the toughest situations. x
