Hooray to 2015

I had been wanted to come back to blogging for the longest time but life got in a way. The year 2014 was an interesting one. It had a mix of good and challenging/stressful times. Despite all the happenings, everything came to a happy ending at the closing of 2014 with a big sigh of relief. Since today was the first day of the new year, I was determined to make it happen. I have yet to stop blogging at this point but will pop my head up from time to time. Thanks to some of you who stick around with me through the year despite my MIA :)

In 2015, I am determined to add more fun to life as stresses took over for the most part of last year. There was one circumstance which totally opened up my eyes and made me realize how short our lives could be. I am still learning how to balance several things in life. Emotion wise, I need t be calmer in general. I need to learn to take a deep breath and be more positive about things in life. I also feel that I live in a very structured lifestyle. I create and stick with routine..routine.. and the same damn routine. I am too rigid, I need to relax and go with the flow. I rarely do things outside the box or the plan ever. Money wise, I am conservative when it comes to saving and I am afraid to spend but I realize people do die before they get to use their retirement money. It is okay to reward yourself and not get in a financial trouble. Worrying too much about future can take way the joy from the present. I want to get back to blogging and having my "me" time again. I think it will take awhile to be able to meet my goals but at least I am considered to be a work in progress.

Fun and joy are my keywords this year. What about yours?

  1. Happy new year! Love the gingerbread house.
    I kinda feel the same way, so I'm going to try to laugh more this year :)

  2. Happy 2015! Hope it will be a very happy year for you.
    Sometimes life really gets in the way of blogging. It also happened to me last year and I eventually thought of abandoning my blog for good. Now I have the time again and I enjoy writing something form time to time. And I've learnt that it doesn't really matter if I spend a month or three without posting at all. In the end it's only a blog - so no stress on that :)

  3. Happy New Year to you and your family Nelah! I'm glad to hear that 2014 came to a happy end for you and with each new year we can clear the slate and start again. I hear you on the fun and joy and plan to include plenty of that in my life this year as well. Now let's make it happen :)

  4. Happy New Year and Welcome Back Nelah! I so miss you! I follow you on instagram, but you have the best posts. I always look forward to your pictures. Such an inspiration! Girl, I was the same way...very structured...until things came crashing down. Then I learned of what was truly important and what wasn't. One definitely needs ME TIME! Carve a piece or slice a piece everyday for yourself! Ummm, can I be your second kid because those breakfasts look AWESOME!

  5. I love your key words. And I too get stuck in routine and plans and I don't like change much as it sometimes throws me in for a loop. But I need to relax more too and go with the flow. I learned that unexpected curveballs makes me experience different emotions, some which I have enjoyed! I hope you have a wonderful and fruitful year!! xx

  6. I'm definitely sticking by you on 2015 as well. It's OK to think things through from time to time. We should weight what's important to us and stick to spending more time on that. Yea, life is short. Sometimes in life we see so many things happening around us and we realise how important it is to spend time with people that we care for. Grab the chance when you have it. Quality time is so important.
    Wishing you a happy new year =)
