2016- Just Another Fresh Start

Happy New Year! Today is January 1st, 2016 and as we ring in the New Year, we have clean slate to start a new chapter in our books. However, I'd have to agree with Bridget Jones that New Year's resolutions should start on January 2nd! 

A quote from The Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding 

"But then I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second."

I created these goals last year but now that I'm looking back on them, I've realized that I still want to do the same things THIS year too. This year, I want to continue to travel, be healthy and continuously learn. I also want to learn to let go of expectations of how I think things should be and make more meaningful connections with the people I meet. 

Have you made any resolutions for 2016? Share them in the comments below!

Much happiness and love for 2016!



  1. Yes yes yes yes ! Cook, exercise, travel (of course, come to France !), try new restaurants and new places and well, life is about renewal !


  2. I love, love, love this list of goals and resolutions. Thailand is high up on my travel list as well but it's so hard to fit in all the different places I want to visit in a single year; the wanderlust struggle is real!

    Happy New Year and can't wait to see how you kick some ass this year! :)
