Happy New Year Friends!!!

Today I want to share pictures of my christmas vacation while writing a little bit about my goals for 2015. I haven’t yet finished writing the things I want to accomplish this year, but I have come up with one little word I want to stick to. 

(I fell in love with buildings in Madrid)

A couple of years ago, I heard the concept of one little word. It’s mainly about choosing a word to focus on in the new year. So, for 2015, I have chosen a word. I present you: ADAPT.

As I’ve said before, in December I finished my bachelors degree in nutrition. I’ve spent the last 4.5 years focusing on building a base of knowledge I’ll need to enter the workforce. Also, most of the time I knew what to do…study, study and study. Now that that important period of my life is over, I feel like I’m back to a fresh start, a start in which I have no clue what I have to do or what I’ll be doing a month from now. Actually, I don’t even know what I’ll be doing tomorrow! 

So, with this in perspective, I know that I won’t be able to plan or predict what will happen this year…everything will be new and changing from what was normal to me. For this reason, I chose the word ADAPT. Life has already taught me that things don’t always turn out as planned…so I’m sure this word will come in handy.

For the most part, the word seems to be related to the professional side of my life. However, I will also be applying it to my personal life when I’m unhappy with day-to-day situations. I am one of those people who is a crazy planner and loves having to-do lists and things to accomplish. 

And I’m not only talking about “do the laundry” or “clean the house” type of things, but bigger things like where I’d like to live in the future, places I want to visit, and how many kids I want to have. So, when things don’t go according to my “lists”, I tend to mentally over-react. I can get sad or angry for a few hours…which is not only annoying to me, but also to the ones around me. 

This year, I want to be more conscious about when these unexpected situations happen and be able to ADAPT.

2015, I feel like I don’t have a blank page to write, but an entire blank book in front of me that has pages to be written, ripped off, teared on and enjoyed. And I’m ready to ADAPT in this story!

PS: I made a video about our time at the ski resort in France :) To watch it you'll probably need to be on a computer, but it's fun, I promise!
