Maybe it’s the freshness of a new year, or maybe it’s due to recent life events, but somehow this week, my life has been in perspective for the first time in a while. I’ve enjoyed my hours spent at my job, because I realize it is just that, and have appreciated my time outside my career so much more because I know that it’s what is important. It’s about the little things, the quiet moments, the hugs from loved ones, and smiles you give to a stranger. Nothing monumental happened this week, but it seemed to fly by – as I really was taking each day with a new, positive attitude. I don’t necessarily believe in new year’s resolutions, but I do think this fresh outlook is something that will carry me through 2014.
