2016 reflections + 2017 resolutions

I have never really been one of those people to made a big deal out of the new year or be nostalgic about the last ending — but 2016 was one for the books. This year brought so much growth and I am so thankful for the opportunities I had, what I accomplished, and how rewarding it was.

I lived a longtime dream of mine – I moved to Nashville for the summer and had my dream music business internship on Music Row. I still feel like it was a dream.

I got my heart broken, badly, but I learned and grew and rebuilt myself again.

I threw myself into my passions and discovered new ones – like starting a website.

I pushed myself in school and took 23 credit semesters (so now I can graduate a year early if I decide to!!!!) and still managed to travel almost every weekend.

The year was full of so many new jobs and internships and opportunities and people.

I literally have no idea what this new year holds. No idea. There are so many different directions it could take and I don’t know what I want to do. Graduate undergrad, move to Nashville, go to grad school, stay in Charleston, be finished with school forever, stay in Charleston for grad school, just take a break and relax for once…. move somewhere like New York….. or Hawaii just for fun…. I can dream right?

All I know is that I’m going to make this the most fulfilling, positive year of my life yet.

A few resolutions :

to take every good opportunity I am given

to do something every day that gets me closer to achieving my goals

to be kinder and to love others more

to not be scared of change

travel as much as possible (Hawaii + Europe are at the top of my list)

work on growing my creativity

learn as much as possible in every field possible

to actually learn to play more than 12 chords on the guitar. haha

….  and work harder on posting on this blog consistently and creating good content

Thank you to those who actually take time to read this blog of mine!!!!!! I love being able to have somewhere to share my thoughts and I hope it brings some inspriation to you. Thank you to those who I’ve met, and those that I haven’t met yet, who support me.

I wish you all the best of luck in the New Year – the year is yours.

Chase what you love. Find what gets you out of bed in the morning and cling to it. 

What’re your resolutions?
