The Beauty of Minutia

I’ve never been a fan of resolutions, so for the past several years I’ve set New Year’s goals instead. Although I didn’t meet every goal I set for 2014, I did meet several of them, and I learned a lot while attempting me meet those that were unattained. When I began thinking about what goals I wanted to set for 2015, most of the ones I considered felt redundant, so instead of setting specific goals, I’ve decided to choose a word to use for my primary focus for growth this year.


I want to figure out who I am, and then get to know the real me. I then want to allow myself the experience of living the authentic life I deserve.

I want to be real. I want to listen to my heart. I don’t want to just survive life; I want to live it! I want to create adventures in monotony. I want to focus on the minutia. I want to feel. I want to be brave. I want to love hard. I want to take chances. I want to avoid over thinking. I want to trust the process. I want to have faith.  I want to be happy.  I want to avoid regrets.

I want to be “me.”
