Why hello Monday

8:13 PM

Another lovely Monday has rolled around.  This will be the last Monday of this year.  Can you believe it?  It’s already almost 2014.  This is the time of year when everyone decides to make their New Year’s resolution and talks about how they are going to change their life for the better, or they just simply reflect on the past year.  This year I will not have a resolution, nor have I had one for the past 2 years.  Why not?  Is what most people have been asking me.  My response is simple.  If I really wanted to change something in my life I would not rely on a superstition for the new year, I would do it right now, right this minute, or second.  I’m not saying that it’s pointless to have a resolution because let’s be honest some people do actually stick to their resolutions.  I’m just saying that for me resolutions don’t work.  I’ve done the whole “I’m going to go to the gym more,” and I didn’t.  I either didn’t go at all or I did and then stopped going.  This year if I go to the gym it’s only to work off the weight I gained during the holidays because I have gained some “hibernation” weight as I like to call it.  Like I said, I am not saying having a resolution is bad, it’s just not for me.

Instead of thinking of a resolution I’d rather look at the past year.  What were my successes, what were my failures, what did I change, what did life have in store for me, how many times did I fall and get back up?  The beginning of 2013 started with the loss of my friend.  I was upset but I decided that in his memory I would change my life, and well I did.  You always have to take the good with the bad is what I have come to terms with.  Life is NOT perfect, if it were perfect it would be boring.  Life will throw curveballs at you, it’s just how you react to them that will shape you into the person you are supposed to be.  I’m very proud of what I’ve done and how I’ve changed over the past year. 

With all of that being said, let’s move on to my normal outfit post.
