Happy New Year!
We celebrated by buying beer, going out for sushi (how great it that fortune?), seeing Big Eyes (don’t even bother) and ending the night at Bobby and Becca’s with Cranium, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and a midnight champagne toast. Gosh, don’t I look excited in that first picture? And like I have no idea that I’ll be spending the entire next day sleeping on the couch and feeling like absolute shit? #HangoverFromHell
Luckily, Mom’s New Year’s Day feast cured it all.
So here we are in 2015 and I’m ready to declare my theme for the year. And look, I seriously tried so hard to rephrase my theme so that it wasn’t the title of a heinous Disney song, but I couldn’t do it. So here’s to 2015, the year that I let it go.
I feel like I’m stuck in a rut of being a controlling perfectionist. I need to learn that not everything is or needs to be in my control and that I need to be okay with that. That I need to brush it off when things don’t go as planned and just trust that things will turn out as they should. That it’s okay to let things happen instead of being the one who has to make things happen.
In 2013, I vowed to say “yes” more and I think it really helped to write it down and put it out there. It kept me accountable. So I’m hoping the same goes for 2015. I have a few smaller personal goals that I’m keeping to myself — because let’s face it, I put enough pressure on myself already — but I wanted to share this one.
In true “let it go” fashion, I just brushed it off when our NYE dinner and NYD (I just made that acronym for New Year’s Day up) brunch didn’t go as planned. It felt good to be a “roll with the punches” type gal. (FYI, I just accidentally typed “roll with the brunches.” Is it too late to make that my theme of the year instead?)
Bring it on, 2015!
