Welcoming the New Year

Hello! I am writing from the comfort of my bedroom on some reflections I’ve come across during the new year. In keeping with my desire to be more aligned with the seasons and focusing on what really matters, I have been setting seasonal intentions as opposed to yearly goals. My year technically begun on the last Winter Solstice, as I took that time to reflect and start routines and habits that will allow me to be more mindful about what I do outside of work and set in motion the projects that are close to my heart and mean a lot to me.

Nevertheless, the coming and going of a year is an important time to reflect. 2018 was one of the best years of my life. I can only think of it with gratitude and love as it was the year when I met my boyfriend, the year I got my degree in physical form, the year I got my first paid job, the year I saw Nightwish live again, and the year I met the members of Nightwish ❤ it was also a year of travels, family time, hardwork, and creativity.

I am welcoming 2019 with open arms as I believe that this year will also fulfill some of my biggest dreams. It has started pretty well already, as the turn of the year found me watching Lord of the Rings with my mom and having this beautiful quote with the strike of noon:

“A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something. ” – Samwise Gamgee.

I am looking forward to spending more time on this little online corner and share with you the adventures that are yet to come 🙂
