Welcoming 2013

As we venture into a new year, I want to embrace a new perspective. I want to change my outlook in many areas. When trying to figure out a word to best describe my ambitions for 2013, only one came to mind. Simplicity. I want to simplify our lives. Our possessions, our finances, our way of living in general. I want to take delight in the simplest of days and make the most out of every tiny moment.

I want to be content with what we have and stop dwelling on that which we lack. 2012 taught me many, many lessons and I'm hoping that 2013 will follow suit. Cheers to newness, to a fresh start! Here's to finding beauty amongst the chaos of our lives and adopting new standpoints. My heart is filled with expectancy for the months to come. Let's make each fading second count.
