Sunday's chit-chat: Looking back on this past year

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Hello ladies, today I'll be chatting with you about my past year.
I already know this post is going to be a long one, but I needed to write everything down, so that I always have something to look back to.

I don't know if it's because 2012 sucked on a whole new lever or what, but I can certainly say that 2013 was an amazing year. 
Of course there were some bad moments, a few major mistakes made, tears shed, some unfinished business, some opportunities lost,..
But most of these, are now, thanks to my memory box, forgotten and I can focus on and remember only the good ones.

Memory box

I really think I learned a lot this past year, I learned how to be more positive, more happy, and in general more calm. I also became a lot more open and confident, which is definitely because of my blog and also thanks to your lovely comments and positive feedbacks.
I learned that a lot of your emotions and the way you (re)act, depend on the people who surround you.
I'm still in the process of learning how to walk away from people and things that don't bring me happiness and joy, that suck the life out of me, that aren't supportive and generally make my life more negative.
I'm learning how to let go, I'm learning to except the fact that not everything will come with a final goodbye and that a lot of things will stay unfinished, unsaid.
And that's all right, as long as I'm in peace with it and I make my own closure.

2013 was also a year of laughter. There were moments when I laughed so hard, I honestly though I was going to die. My circle of friends also got a lot smaller, but that's, again, a good thing, since I think that I finally, hopefully, know who my real friends are. But on the other hand, I could say that I also made a lot of new friends this year. I discovered the bloggers community, especially the Slovenian bloggers and we've been chatting away on Twitter and now also on Facebook like old friends.

It was also a year of doing things that scared, or better said, still scare the crap out of me. I joined a project, I managed to complete 19 New Year's resolutions of 29, and I became very passionate about blogging

My notebook for writing down the resolutions

This past year was definitely a year of blogging. I realized that blogging makes me extremely happy and that this is something I really want to continue doing.
I dedicated a lot of time to my blog and I actually missed it, if I had to take a little break because sometimes life just got too hectic.
This year I definitely want to make this blog even better and work even harder, even though I think I already accomplished quite a lot in one year. For instance, in February I hit 100 followers and 1200 views, in May I hit 10.000 views, in August 200 followers, and now I have 244 lovely followers and my blog has more than 48.000 views. I got a chance to collaborate with some online stores, I was invited to my first event for bloggers, I got to thank all of you with two giveaways,...
This is definitely something I never even dreamt about, since I honestly thought that the only people reading it, will be me and my friend.

I also think that my parents became very proud and happy for me. I know this may sound weird, and by no means I'm saying that before they weren't, because they are always supportive and proud of me, and we're extremely close, but I think that they really know that the path I'm currently on, makes me very happy.
We also made a lot of progress on our new house, which again is something we all are extremely excited about.
I also got a lot closer to finding myself, to setting up my lifetime goals, the way to reach them and figuring out what I want to do and become in the future. I think that this has is due to reading and watching The Secret, because it changed my prospective on life in general.

As I mentioned, 2012 was a really bad and challenging year for me, especially in the health department, and I can proudly say that this year I got a lot healthier and I actually wasn't at the doctors for a whole year (knocks on wood).

Two of my favourite things about 2013 were, without a doubt, taking my sister to Paris and spending a whole week alone with her, and going to the Yves Rocher event.

All in all 2013 was truly awesome and it flew by so quickly. Now I have even higher hopes for 2014. Let's make it unforgettable.

What is one thing you want to achieve in 2014?

  2. Tisti listki v spominski škatli so mogoče dnevni zapisi, kaj se ti je zgodilo lepega ali te je osrečilo vsak dan v preteklem letu? :)

    1. So zapisi ja, ampak ne dnevni :) Si mi pa dala idejo za letošnje leto, mogoče bi pa res lahko poskusila za vsak dan napisat nekaj :)

    2. Jaz sem vidla na FB to idejo in jo bom poskusila uresničiti :) pomoje more bit na koncu leta prav super občutek, ko jih vse prebereš in se spomniš na nekatere dobre stvari, ki si jih medtem časom že pozabil.

  9. Tile listki o dobrih stvareh so luštna ideja. Čeprav jaz raje prakticiram pisanje hvaležnosti vsak dan pred spanjem, če ne pozabim :) Ker ko enkrat začnem pisat, potem se ne ustavim, bi preveč listkov porabila :D
    Ful fajn leto je blo, se strinjam, čeprav je vsako leto do sedaj blo fajn, ker vse je vedno na svojem mestu in tudi če se svet okoli tebe sesuva, se mora, ker od tega se rodi nekaj novega. Sami dajamo predznake + in -, vse samo je :). Bolezni so pa več ali manj samo pokazatelji naših čustvenih neravnovesij, tako da je dobro pogledati, kakšni vzorci se skrivajo za kakšno boleznijo :)
    Pa na čudovito 2014. Izjemno bo oz je že ;)

    1. Ta tvoja ideja je tudi super ja, čeprav bi sama verjetno pozabila vsak dan nekaj napisat, pa mi je pol to z listki lažje :)
      Se pa strinjam za bolezen ja, tudi moja je bila bolj kot ne samo posledica stresa...
      Pa hvala za super komentar, tvoje razmišlanje in način pisanja sta mi res enkratna :)
