It’s that time of the year…time to say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015! I can’t believe 2014 is coming to a close already. This was one of those years that flew by. But it was a good year. I started this blog in February 2014 and have been enjoying every minute of the creative process, reading all of your comments, and getting to know the blogging community. I am grateful to my readers and for this space — so thank you! This was also my first year post-thyroid cancer. While it was filled with lots of visits to see my endocrinologist, I am happy to report that I have remained in good health. I was fortunate to be introduced to an amazing group of thyroid advocates on Twitter who have offered support to myself and others with thyroid cancer. Recently, I guest posted on Zen Thyroid, a health and wellness blog that focuses on healing, where I shared my thyroid cancer story. I am always touched when someone tells me that my story inspired them.
Here’s a recap of some of my favorite posts from the year:
Confessions of a ‘Recent’ College Graduate
One Year Out
Six Things I’ve Learned in Six Months of Blogging
Opening Day at The Hampton Classic
Twenty Lessons I Learned in my 20’s
Designing with Modani
I would like to make some new, meaningful resolutions for 2015. At the top of my list is to take better care of myself (as in — eat right!). This has remained on my radar for quite some time now, and always manages to fall by the wayside. But this year, I am determined to make it a priority by choosing healthy recipes and planning out my meals for the week.
Along with a healthy lifestyle comes getting back to practicing yoga regularly. I had joined the gym at work with a workout buddy, and had been going everyday, but these last six months left me with no time (or energy!) to spare. I’d like to make exercise a priority in 2015 (and give SoulCycle a try!).
And, of course, I want to keep creating content for you all to enjoy. Feel free to leave suggestions for posts you would like to see on the blog in 2015 in the comments section!
I’m sure I will think of more things to incorporate into my New Year’s resolution. But for now, having a few straightforward goals is more manageable than having a long list. I hope you all have positive memories from 2014 and are as excited as I am to welcome a New Year!
