New Year, New Resolutions

I've been thinking a lot about new year's resolutions. I think they're funny. Mostly because people make them, forget about them, neglect them, or work at them for a limited period of time. Last year, I chose seven new resolutions to live by. Seven that I just couldn't imagine life without. And I stuck to them. Of course, I posted them in my kitchen to see every day, but I can honestly say I lived by them.

And I'm not ready to let them go. 

So this year, I'm adding to the list. I'm keeping my old ones, because I think they made me try to be a better, more relaxed person, and I'll add my new ones to live by this year. 

This year is going to be a big one for me. I finally feel like I am aware that I'll be saying bye to this sweet place and familiar faces. I'll have 1/2 the year in Bots, 1/2 the year in the USA. It's a lot of change, a lot of good-byes, a lot of hellos, a lot of new beginnings. So here's my list: 

1. Seek simplicity.
2. Keep faith.
3. Notice more. 
4. Love harder. 
5. Stand strong. 
6. Enjoy life slower. 
7. Spend more time under the stars. 
8. Treat others according to my character, not theirs.

9. No comparisons. 
10. Be calm. 
11. Embrace change. 
12. Savor precious moments. 
13. Believe in myself. 
14. Breathe through it. 
15. Follow my own truth. 

Love & Light,
