The New Year is exhausting.

I’m usually an optimist on any given holiday. I enjoy anything that includes extra glitter, food and celebrations. However, The New Year is exhausting in many different ways.

The exhaustion of a New Year doesn’t just come from staying up past midnight which is always a struggle for me. It’s also mentally exhausting. During New Years we are always focused on how we can be a super human this year and how much we sucked last year. Focusing more on our past and future rather than being in the present moment, one of the most important things I learned from 2017.

A new beginning is so forced by society during a new year. How are you going to change your lifestyle? How are you going to change your body? How are you going to change your relationships?Β I’ve had my fair share of new beginnings and I’m telling you this, it’s much more rewarding to let these changes come naturally rather than forced. We grow at our own time and not by January 1st, two thousand whatever.

I used to be obsessed with New Year’s Resolutions and sharing my goals for the upcoming year with the world. I even created a vision board art piece last year but lost it a month after posting about it. Do we actually set these resolutions to make ourselves a better person or to just prove to the world that we too have goals?

I hope you wake up everyday thankful for the lessons you learned from the previous day and how you can better yourself and goals daily.

With all of this being said, I did have a fantastic New Years which ended with a New Year’s kiss and pancakes for breakfast.

Stay Sunny!

So now what?

After every big trip I get the question “So now what?” which is actually a question I ask myself everyday at least 3 times a day. So, I thought I would do a simple post as to what is going on in my life now and my current plans.

As you may not know, I was supposed to be moving to Grand Junction, Colorado. After my month long trip in July the plan was to come right home, pack up and leave for Colorado. Well, life had other plans and nothing worked out how it was supposed to. Although I feel as though I had failed I remember one of my favorite quotes…”God will wreck your plans if he sees your plans will wreck you”

Currently, my home will remain in Southern Utah and I will be traveling as much as I can, while I can. Also, focusing full-time on school until I graduate in April.Β Outside of school and traveling I am spending time on my creative work and building my future business. I am also still involved with the Art Museum by being a docent for school groups which I love so much.

In October I will be working at my family’s farm called Moon Farm in Fruita, Colorado! I will be there during their busy pumpkin patch season! It will be a new experience and I am definitely looking forward to it. It also works perfectly because I will get an extended time in Western Colorado without permanently moving there.

I am very blessed that I have this beautiful opportunity in life to spend exploring, learning and growing.

Stay sunny!
