Leave your Mark

January 17, 2014

Happy new year, everyone! I hope 2014 has been amazing for you so far :) I am beyond thrilled to take on the new year...and truly challenge myself with new goals and to live out my passions. 2013 was definitely a year of growth for me, and I couldn't be more thankful for all the wonderful memories and experiences that I shared with my friends and family. From my travels to best friends getting engaged and married, there were many highlights from the year that I'll cherish for a lifetime.

As I welcome 2014, I want to become the best version of myself and leave my mark in the world by exuding confidence, happiness, intelligence, strength, and love.

Confidence - I think confidence is the most attractive trait in people, and to be completely honest, it can be hard for me at times. We only get one shot at life, so why not live it to the absolute fullest? Don't be afraid to fail, but believe in yourself that you can, in fact, do anything that you set your mind to. It just starts with believing in yourself.

Happiness - Do what you love, and happiness will surround you. Traveling has been and continues to be a passion of mine. From planning my next vacation to immersing myself in a country and learning different cultures, traveling gives me a sense of freedom and happiness that I love and constantly crave.
Intelligence - This year, I want to dedicate more time to reading and educating myself with something new. Whether it be setting aside time to learn a new language or getting lost in a great novel, it's important to expand the mind.

Strength - Strength in body and mind. It's always been very important to me to live a healthy lifestyle. By constantly being active - whether it be going to the gym, hot yoga, or spin class - the strength to keep pushing myself, even when I'm tired or feeling unmotivated, is the best.

Love - It starts with loving yourself. Surround yourself with positive people and in turn, you'll have more love to give. We often get so caught up with our own lives that we forget to reach out and meet someone new. Make it a point to brighten someone's day with a smile or a simple hello. The love you show others can go a long way!

How are you going to leave your mark in 2014?
