I never chose a word for 2015. I didn’t write any resolutions and, in general, I had no specific intentions for this year.
The last two months have revealed 2015 to be a year of growth and rejuvenation. This is a year for exploration, personal projects, and forging connections outside of my own little safety bubble. This is not what I thought the year would hold and, at first, I fought it. I grumbled and sank into the couch with a nice big bowl of popcorn and let my mind drift off into the magical world of Netflix. I made a couple bad investments that left me feeling hurt and angry at myself. And, I’m not going to lie, it took me a while to stop pouting and embrace the fact that sometimes you try and fail. Life goes on. In the end, I learned from my failure and some really great connections were established despite my misstep.
So here we are 2.5 months into the year and I’ve decided to accept it for what it is. I am getting out of my comfort zone and I believe that this is where the magic will happen. Over the next few months you’ll start to see some small changes on the blog as I dive into a personal project I’ve been dreaming about for the last year. You’ll start to see some more features of local businesses as I piece tother a digital travel guide for the many people who come to Portland looking for the insider scoop on where to eat, shop and play. Additionally I’m going to embark on some adventures this year and I’m excited to share my travels with you.
Nobody’s perfect and it’s a fact I have to face every day. This year I will focus on the things that make my heart expand and I hope that you’ll enjoy the process.
