After a 12 month long hiatus…I’m back! Between graduating college, moving to a new city, and starting a new job, it has been quite a year. I’m slowly starting to feel more like a full-fledged adult, but there are moments where I have a hard time wrapping my head around where I am in life. I’ve always believed that good friendship are the key to happiness, and I’m here to report that that doesn’t change in the “real world.” I don’t know where I would be without all of my amazing friends in my life, so this post is for them.
Friendship is what got me blogging in the first place. My friend Taylor has been very influential in both the start (and now the restart) of my blog. Only a true friend could convince you to do something you hate, and for me, that is writing. You can check out my influential friend on Lefty
Living Life. Hopefully her style inspires you the way it does me.
So, you’re probably wondering, what’s the point of this post? I don’t really care all that much about your wonderful friends, no matter how amazing they may be. My response is that today, I want to talk about a journal I received for Christmas from my friend Valerie. It is called 52 Lists and provides weekly inspiration for a year. The book follows you through the seasons and asks you to reflect on topics such as your goals for the year and the moments from your past that have shaped you the most. It’s nice to take a minute once a week to appreciate life and the wonderful moments within it. For this week’s list I’m working on a list of songs that make up the soundtrack of my life. Music is such an important part of who I am, but I find that I’m having trouble picking songs that reflect that. I like to make playlists for my friends, but it seems making one for myself requires a bit more inner reflection than I would have thought. I challenge you to take a moment this week to reflect on your life, who you are, and who you want to be. You may find there are aspects of your life you take for granted when things get a little busy. I know I do.
