Welcoming the New Year From The Clouds

Up aboveWhen I really began using this blog I turned to it for support. I shared my move to Boston not so much to showcase my experiences, but to ask for help. This blog encouraged and motivated me to thrive in the decision I made nearly four years ago. Today as I spend my last few hours of 2014 in an airport, I can’t help but point out how poignant it is that I am sitting in an airport terminal waiting for my late night flight on the eve of the New Year. I have spent most of my life traveling and visiting new places, most recently I have moved more in my lifetime within four years. These experiences have forever changed me and the landscape of my life. As 2015 approaches all of us I ask for 15 things. I set 15 goals for me to accomplish in 2015. I hope those around me will find the courage and determination to accomplish the dreams and goals set for this year. As for me one of my goals is to revive this blog, and with the support of my friends, family and readers, I hope you will all give me the confidence and strength I am searching for in 2015. God speed New Year, a new year is a time for new opportunities…

Hoping your New Year’s Resolution has meaning

Happy New Year. I hope everyone rang in 2014 as pleasantly as possible. I saw some pretty cool pictures on social media over the past few days of different New Year’s traditions on how to celebrate the ending of one year to the next. From luggages to bonfires and grapes, I’d like to share my little tradition. For the past five years my best friend Danielle and I have written down an endless list of goals and wishes for the year, shoved them into a lime green Spacemaker pencil box, sealed the box tight with tape and thrown them to the back of her closet to wait until the following year to open. What started as a cool thing to do over a January meal has become our little tradition. What’s special about this is reading what your wrote down for yourself a year later and evaluating whether it came true, failed, was a silly wish or somehow it’s almost like you subconsciously predicted a year before what would happen to you. This year, Dani and I met at GreenStreet for breakfast. We looked back at 2013’s earlier goals and noticed that we both asked for a lot and wished for so much. We both shared to one another how the first half of our 2013 was rough, yet the year had a magical way of skyrocketing halfway through and providing us with an amazing ending. As we wrote our goals & wishes for 2014 we limited our list to 25 and within this we both included goals for ourselves, sisters, family and friends. From getting hired as a TV reporter to finding mental peace, my list for 2014 definitely shows growth. Suddenly, weighing a certain number and having a specific GPA is not relevant, at all.

That’s a snapshot of me taken by my best friend at GreenStreet. Breakfast there is so great– highly recommended for food, drinks and atmosphere.

And now as 2014 is underway, I am glad Dani and I took a couple of hours to reflect on our year and not just ask for more, but be grateful for the abundance of blessings we receive and continue to. I hope that 2014 allows us both to contribute as much positivity as possible to those around us. With that, if you have not taken a second yet to reflect on 2013 do so and then remind yourself that there is a whole year waiting just for you. Godspeed 2014.

When you wish upon a star

When you wish upon a star

I took this down Buswell Street and Park Drive, late one December afternoon.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind,
She brings to those to love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.

—”When you Wish Upon a Star” Walt Disney’s Pinocchio.

Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving break. As for me, I wanted to share what I am most thankful for: my family. We spent our Thanksgiving this year at the Macy’s Day Parade in New York City.
