I don’t do resolutions. I don’t do New Years lists, don’t tick things off the list, or say I’m going to go to the gym each day starting January 1st.
I used to do it. I used to plan ahead, write down in my diary everything that I wished for in the New Year, but then when some things or all things on that list didn’t come to life, I was so disappointed. Maybe I was aiming too high? Or maybe those weren’t even New Year’s resolutions in the first place.
Of course I do think about where I want to be, what I want to achieve, but it’s somehow different now. This year traveling has taught me that you have to take life as it is sometimes, and other times, laugh even when everything is going wrong or you feel like it’s going wrong. There were many times in my travels this year I felt like I wasn’t enough, I felt like I hated that place just because I had a couple of bad experiences, just like a kid, when they don’t get the toy they want. And yeah, we’re all kids. Maybe sometimes I was more of a spoiled brat, wanting everything to be seamless. And now even though I might get upset on the moment I know that I love the place where I am because I am lucky. Lucky to see and discover more of the world. And here’s to seeing more of it in 2019!
I have been through ups and downs, crying when going snorkeling, afraid to jump off a tiny waterfall while canonyneering, hated the toilets in Vietnam, or when I got sick there for weeks, loved everything in between and each single moment. Even though I didn’t know how to make it. I have shared everything with my one and only partner and best friend, Jord. He has been there every step of the way and there’s nothing to wish for more than love. Of course, when you add seeing the entire world with you to it,it’s much better.
I have no idea how to run a business, but I intend to, doing more kimonos, designing, fighting for my place and for my idea. I am still going to chase, yes, some say rainbows, but I still am going to chase these dreams of mine because it’s not worth it letting them go.
Cheers to us and to all good times and bad times cuz they taught us something, there’s to many more adventures and discovering the world. And here’s to a better year than this one and to love,lots of love! .
