It’s hard to believe but we are halfway through 2013 as of this month. How can this be possible?? Time seriously flies, especially as we get older, but that’s a whole other post, now isn’t it! Anyway, I thought it would be a good time to check in on my resolutions. Reflections to date below.

Create. On this one I slipped a little at the beginning of the year when I took a blog break, but I feel like I have been back on track recently and I have a new outlook on how to make this blog something that I enjoy. I am using more of my own content and not putting pressure on myself for this website to function like a professional business. I don’t need thousands of followers, there are enough of those types of blogs out there. This is blog is a place for me to be creative and I hope a blog that people can enjoy and be inspired by from time to time.

Initiate Change. I am moving to Boston, which will likely be the biggest thing I do this year. I am not buying a home, it’s not the time and unfortunately my new apartment won’t allow a pet, but I am excited about making a change. I have always thought about going back and it feels good to be taking the chance. Who knows, maybe I will miss DC to much or I will find my dream job in another city, but for now I am headed north for a while.

Simplify. Always hard, especially for someone who likes “stuff” as much as I do! But simplify means a lot more than just things, there are many ways to simplify. For me I think it’s spending more quality time with those I love and not worrying so much about having a ton of acquaintances, not getting stressed about insignificant things (like a bad day at work) and just enjoying being in the moment more. That’s what I am going to focus on for the remainder of the year.

What about you? Are you maintaining your New Year’s resolutions?
