Thursday, January 16, 2014
I decided that this year, I want to try to take more ownership over my actions. It's so easy to tell yourself "you can't do that, that's not how your life is" and grow stagnant. I don't want to forget that wishes can be made real if you take action and just do it.
I have the privilege of going to university full-time, meaning I get holidays where my time is all my own. I won't have this luxury again in my life, and I had money saved, so on the 30th of December, I booked a ticket to London, and on New Year's Eve, there I was!
It felt exhilarating to reclaim my life and do something I wanted to do, out of the routine, out of what was sensible (I might add that I was raised to save for a rainy day and never spend what I don't have, and of course I don't suggest doing something crazy that will land you in debt!).
A welcome reminder that nothing is out of reach if you really want it. The trip was a beautiful start to the new year.
