Hopes for 2014

Today is the first day of January (as you obviously all well know) but here’s a little secret: I hate January. It’s cold, it’s dark and there’s nothing to look forward to during it, besides the upcoming Spring. but I shall persevere this year as ever. As a new year dawned earlier today, I spent some time reflecting on the upcoming year. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. I never stick to them anyways, but I do have some hopes and dreams for the upcoming year:

That Sam and I will consistently find work that we are passionate about. (Not finding this is always a peril of being self-employed).

That we continue to grow in our love for each other.

That any grievances and heartache between either of us, our family or friends can be heeled and soothed.

That our new home will a happy one, long after it is no longer new.

That I am able to save some money, while at the same time, not stressing about money so much.

That we are able to take at least one trip abroad together.

That Sam meets more of my friends and family.

That I show him parts of America that mean a lot to me.

That I will continue to be passionate about blogging, and if not, I will not force myself to continue writing.

That I will express gratitude more regularly an readily.

That I will think more positively about myself both inside and out.

And last, but not least, that I will drink more water.

What are your hopes for 2014?

  • Great goals, I can really relate to the home one as I tend to get very restless in a place and we have a year and half in our place and I need to continue to make it a happy home.

  • Drinking more water!! That is one that I should work on too!! LOL
    Your goals are all good and do-able! Here’s to another year in Blogland!

    • Haha thanks! I try to alone make do-able goals. Because otherwise I’d never do it. Well maybe for two days and then…. nope… Although I seriously don’t EVER drink enough water! x

  • THE THIRD ONE! Oh how I feel for this.

    I think that the home you share with Sam will always be a happy one, even when it is no longer “new.” Your love and support for one another will keep you both strong and happy (as well as your home). <3

    • Thanks Alex! I should have guessed that if any one would related to number 3 it would be you. So here’s to hoping for the BOTH of us. xx

  • Happy New Year! I hate January too… it always seems so dull after the excitement of Christmas and New Year, plus getting back into the routine of work and every day life is always an anticlimax. We will both get through it though, and spring will come… eventually!

    • Yes- you 100% understand my feelings. That’s them to a T. At least I know it’s not just me… I’m sure we will bare through bravely 🙂 x
