Vey soon we will enter the year of 2015, which means that yet another year have come to pass. In reality time is pretty much ‘just’ an illusion, but The New Year still symbolize a new start and a new beginning. It’s time to reflect on the time that has been, and (maybe) make resolutions for the time that has yet to come. Last year my only New Year’s resolution was to be able to do a yoga headstand, and I’m so happy to say that I’ve got that pretty much conquered. I’m still working on getting comfortable in the pose though, but what matters is that I can actually get upside down, which is something I never thought was possible for me:
But this year I’ve written down my New Year ‘resolutions’ a little more in ‘depth’:
♥ I want to continue my regular yoga practice. If I have the time, I’ll incorporate it every day or every other day. I want to explore my boundaries and go beyond my comfort-zone.
♥ I want to get stronger, but I want to build strength gradually so that both my body and mind can follow (Slow but consistent)
♥ I want to vibrate good energy, and have a positive attitude towards life. But I also want to accept the times and the downfalls where this is not always possible.
♥ I want to let go of the high expectations I have towards myself. Sometimes the efforts I make, the food I eat and so on will be less than ideal and that is OKAY.
♥ In addition to the words above, I want to finish school this year. I’m going to do my best, but no more than that. I won’t burden myself with the need to do extremely well. Just get through. Get it done, and move on with my life.
♥ I’ll work on being in the present every day. Don’t let thoughts about the future (or past) trouble my mind. Just take one day at a time.
♥ I’ll to try to tell myself everyday that I’m worth it. Even on the days where I won’t actually believe it.
Before 2015 is over, I’ll have finished school and I will have entered a new chapter of my life. This is so super exciting, but also very scary. I’ll possible move away from home sometime next summer, but other than that I don’t know what’s going to happen. There’s so much I want to do, and so much I want to see and right now I just can’t make up my mind. But isn’t that the main thing – we don’t really know anything about what the future has in store for us. All we can do is have a positive mindset, while being open to all parts of life.
2014 was the year were I started this blog yaaaay. I’m really happy that I did, and I can’t wait to create so many more yummy recipes in 2015 (I have lots more in store for you already so stay tuned)! Here’s a little collage of some of the recipes I’ve posted this year:
I honestly feel like 2014 have lasted forever. I feel like lots have changed and yet all remains the same. I feel like I’ve grown a lot this year, and gotten closer to myself by starting to listen more to my body. When it comes to food I’ve been a little bit confused with different ‘lifestyles/diets’ this year such as fullyraw (for a shorter amount of time), rawtill4 and starchsolution. But now at the end of the year I find myself not really relying on either of them anymore. It’s like I’ve gone through these ‘phases’, and now I’m just trying to find my balance. Because I’ve come to realise that I want to incorporate little bits of everything and make a diet that is truly suitable for me. Because honestly I freakin’ love fruit and raw veggies! But I also freakin’ love potatoes and rice. And I also freakin’ love a little bit of avocado, vegan chocolate and peanutbutter every now and then. No labels, no min. or max. calories, no rules, more intuitive eating and in complete contact with my body. THAT is what I’m working on. And again I’m no way near any goal, I’m far from perfect and I don’t always make the right decisions. I’m just a girl on a journey, and 2015 is just another part of the road for me (for all of us really). Let’s make this year a great one!
Happy New Year!
ps. I’m going to celebrate New Years eve with fellow vegan friends (from Instagram) this year!! We’re making a raw vegan dinner and dessert together and it’s going to be EPIC. I’m so excited, and I can’t wait to do an update on how it all went 🙂 🙂
