Free Falling.

I thought long and hard about what I wanted my first blog post for this new year to be about but nothing came to me. I don't have an extensive list of things I want to do or even achieve in 2018. I don't have a detailed bucket list of items I'd like to tick off before the year is done. Nor do I really have any expectations of how this year may pan out.

If 2017 taught me anything, it's that "The best-laid plans of Mice & Men often go awry". Almost everything I thought was concrete disappeared in what felt like the blink of an eye. So for me, this year I just want to free fall. I want to take each day as it comes. I want to truly understand what it is to live, to wake up each morning, feeling the electricity we call life flowing freely through my veins, to inhale crisp sharp breaths of air deeply into my lungs, filling up my whole chest and breathing outwards, expelling this lifeforce and understanding what a privilege it is for me to be able to do such a thing. To walk and feel every weighted step pressing into the God-given dirt beneath my feet. I want nothing more, but to live this year. To be alive and be aware of the life that stretches out before me. 
Here's to a lively and lovely 2018

  1. Love! I actually envy you,I wish I could live this year this way, but I feel like I “free fell” most of last year and maybe even 2016 so I need to feel solid ground this year.

    Wish you a fab 2018! I hope amazing things you’re definitely not planning for will come your way.

    I also wanted to start the new year like this, but I failed woefully because I am an obsessed planner. I wish you all the best this 2018 and I am anxious to read more blog posts from you

  5. I love this idea of just letting the day be whatever it wants to be. I struggle with this a lot but I want to allow myself to feel this more just let days be.
    Love the outfit as well!
