Dear January

Dear January | lovely letters

Dear January,

I can’t believe you are already here! I’m shocked that we’re five days into 2015 but am excited and anxious to see what this year has in store!

If 2014 taught me anything, it’s that time flies. Call me a broken record, but I am overwhelmed by how quickly the time is going! Now that I am incredibly aware that this is the case, I’m hoping to take on 2015 a little more informed. In an attempt to hold on to what I’m sure will be countless precious moments, I thought I’d set some foundational resolutions. My overarching theme is to hold on to the things that matter and let go of the things that don’t. Here are my thoughts…

Set high goals but maintain realistic expectations.

Basic, but necessary. I plan to push my self and stay ambitious but to be realistic about how much I can handle.

Strive to maintain balance.

When I’m balanced, I’m happiest so this one was a no-brainer.

Take things as they come.

2014 was a handful in many ways, but I survived. For as much as I prefer to have control in my life, I’m painfully aware that control is not always an option. Instead of stressing over the things that are out of my power, I resolve to take things in stride. Here’s to being graceful when life gets sticky!

Live in the present and relish the moment!

I started out strong with this one. I was lucky enough to have some serious down time in the first few days of the year. Instead of trying to get a jump-start on things, which obviously would have been the most productive choice, I laid low. I slept in and spent time with people I love. Even though I’m a bit behind on some things, it was well worth it.

What about you? Have you started laying the foundation for your 2015?

Happy New Year!

xx Katie
