2010 has been one of the best years of my life. It's one of those years that really defines who you are and who you may become. I've grown so much in these 365 days. In the beginning of the year I moved in with my boyfriend. I was nervous that it would be a difficult transition, but to my surprise it was natural and exciting. It's helped me grow even closer to him. I also started working harder on my blog. I decided to challenge myself to post everyday and expanded my topics to anything I feel passionate about. It's made me enjoy writing more and increased the diversity of my audience. I was fortunate to be featured on wonderful blogs and websites and work with amazing brands and people.
Of course I faced some rough times as I do every year, but as cliche as it sounds, they only made me stronger and have helped me in discovering who I am. I know more about what I want than ever before and it feels good. I don't even have resolutions for next year--just goals that I'm already hard at work on.
One phrase that has been on repeat in my head these last few months is, "I don't want fame, I want fulfillment". I think many bloggers (or anyone for that matter) can get swept up by the idea of fame and recognition. I've found that I don't care as much about that as I care about the continuing progress towards fulfillment and happiness. Luckily, I'm on my way.
Happy New Year!
