Since everyone else in the world is doing it, I felt it was only right to look back at 2012. In one word, 2012 for me was UNEXPECTED.
In so many ways but mainly good ones. I mean, this was the year I fell in love with New York, with this crazy city that threw hurricanes, frustrating men, cold nights and more in my path. But even amidst all that bad, all that toughness, I look back at 2012 as the year when I became a New Yorker in my brain. I have my coffee shops, my yoga studios, my running paths, my dive bars, my dance halls and my streets that keep me company when significant others have left.
This is the year that life kinda shook me around a bit, throwing curveballs in my way but you know what? I kinda liked it. I didn’t move to this city to live a comfortable existence. I moved here to LEAVE my comfortable existence. Jobs, romance, friendships. I needed a good makeover in all those departments and 2012 sure didn’t disappoint.
Not to mention, 2012 was the year that I really found a few great gems in my life, including a kick-ass roommate, a pretty fun California friend who I had the pleasure of ringing 2013 in, a Joseph-Gordon Levitt loving and general all around awesome person. Not to mention all the lovely blogging friends I’ve been able to meet with my job who have truly made my life in 2012 so much fun.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I hope 2013 is just like 2012, with maybe more stability. And more confidence and awareness. I was speaking to my San Francisco friend and she agreed, stating that 2013 is the year that I finally get what I deserve and NOT be afraid to ask for it. That is huge. HUGE. I mean, to know your worth and actually stand up for it? It’s such a big task but it’s one that I need to work on. So, that’s my goal for the new year. To understand that only you can determine what you are worth.Also, if more good looking men could find their way into my life, that would be grand. Obviously.
