I feel like I'm always waiting, or wanting, the next big thing to happen. Even though sometimes I forget to appreciate what I do have, and what I've already accomplished. Please tell me I'm not alone on this one?!
I'm proud of how far I have come. I'm proud of the fact that I can financially support myself, and enjoy the finer things in life -- because working hard pays off. It hasn't always been a cake walk, but nothing worth it, is. 
And here I go again, adding to my resolutions. I'm going to make things happen. Big things. And know when to recognize that enough really is enough. 
So, I'm going to stop and appreciate the small things (like all of the sweet + encouraging words from you) work harder, be more positive, and fully content. Cheers to making things happen this year. 


  1. Beautiful photo! And I'm totally with you! You should definitely be proud of what you've accomplished thus far and enjoy the small things in life! Happy 2013 and best of luck to you! xoxo


  2. You are definitely not alone in that! I loved finding your blog and reading this today. I, too, have big plans to reach for a big dream this year. Feels a bit like jumping out and trying to catch the trapeze bar. Looking forward to checking in with your blog more often!
