Hello lovely, how are you doing? It’s 2015 and you are here… alive and breathing and okay! Thank you so much for entering this New Year with me…

Hold Up!

Oh man… whispering is just the hardest thing 🙂

I really wanted to go in with this post and tell you all about my holiday and how amazing it was and how I had the best New Years’ experience EVER but I feel like it’s a tad bit too early for that. The fact that it’s already 7 days into January is truly unbelievable and I am in denial about the end of my sweet holiday!

For me 2015 really isn’t about a fresh start but a continuation of the coolness that was 2014. Last year was all about self-discovery, this year however will be dedicated to the improvement of all the aspects of my life.

I stumbled across this poem this morning and it made me feel a little bit more enthusiastic about the New Year. I hope it has the same effect on you…

‘This Year Is Yours’ by Alfred Lord Tennyson

God built and launched this year for you;
Upon the bridge you stand;
It’s your ship, aye, your own ship,
And you are in command.

Just what the twelve months’ trip will do
Rests wholly, solely, friend, with you.

Your logbook kept from day to day
My friend, what will it show?
Have you on your appointed way
Made progress, yes or no?

The log will tell, like guiding star,
The sort of captain that you are.

For weal or woe this year is yours;
Your ship is on life’s sea
Your acts, as captain, must decide
Whichever it shall be;

So now in starting on your trip,
Ask God to help you sail your ship.
