I don’t want to wish for anything for 2014. Wishing means putting faith into the Universe in a vain hope to make something happen for you. Personally, the only thing I have faith in, is myself. In saying that, I don’t want to make resolutions this year either. I’m going to try something completely different.

There will be no promises to myself or others. There will be no Do’s and Don’ts or goals. There will only be living.

This past year, I have moved six times, changed universities, changed courses, made and lost numerous friends, had my heart broken by my best friend, had surgery, found a man who loves me for exactly who I am, and have mainly just been all over the place.

So this coming year, 2014, I will just live my life in one spot, see what it is like to stand still for a minute. That’s all I want – to just stay still for a minute. I’ve been running for a long time now, and I think I have finally found a place to just stay.

Sure, I want the usual things; to lose weight, to get a job, to make something of myself, to make new friends, to save more money…but I want those things every year no matter what time of year of it.

So the challenge for the next twelve months is to see what it is like staying in the one house, in the one relationship, with the one job, keeping all the friends I currently have. Just staying still.

Yes, I want to grow as a person, and yes, I want some things to change in my life. I know things will change, as 365 days is a long time and so many things can happen, and I’m excited for what lies ahead. I just want to stay still, put some roots down here. I think I’m old enough now not to flit around all over the place, the way I have been doing for the last two years.

No matter what happened in the last twelve months, I hope everyone can recognize 2014 for the blessing it is. Good luck to everyone for the year ahead, and may it be full of happiness, laughs, and love.
