It ALMOST went like that.
I did the day of beauty. I stopped and got my champagne and my food. Came home and started celebrating solo. My roommate (yeah, weird I have a roomie for the first time in my adult life--it's a long story) was there (to my surprise) and wasn't planning on going out either. So we watched a movie and at 11:15--we decided we were too fun to sit at home and needed to ring in the new year out and about. We called a cab and headed downtown. On our way, my friend/former student said he was in town so we were gonna meet up. Fun!
This is right before we left the house. I had picked up some party favors just in case. Good thing--we were very festive.
It was the first time I've gone out in months. And for the first time, I wasn't concerned about running into anyone that might make me feel sad. I actually didn't even think about that. It was great! I had fun. I drank too many shots. And I made relatively good decisions. ha ha. I thought I had lost my phone but it turns out my friend had it in his pocket. He discovered that the next morning. Thank God! I would have freaked out if I had to get a new phone. But only because all of my pictures are on there. It was a good night. A really fun, semi memorable, good night.
This is the before.
I love a good organizing project. And it provides me pictures for my portfolio for when/if I ever decide to kick off my professional organizing career.
2014 is off to a good start. I feel better than I have in a long time. I feel like this year is going to be different. I don't have any resolutions. All I want for this year is to live my life to the very fullest every day. To love the people that I love. To be the best possible me I can be. And to always remember that life is too short to have regrets so I'm going to do what I want to do.
2014 is full of possibilities.
Happy New Year!
