So this is the New Year

As 2009 comes to a close, it is only natural to reminisce about another year gone by.
This was definitely a year of transitioning for me, and I learned a lot about myself. Although there were some hiccups as I like to call them, I wouldn't change anything.

Instead, I will learn from the past and enter the new year with the knowledge and certainty that there will always be something new awaiting me. It is time to put the past in the past and look with bright eyes to the year ahead. There is no need to compare, but I am ready to make 2010 the best. year. ever. 

Noteworthy Recap of 2009:  

1.   I jumped on the Crackberry wagon
  Graduated university/moved back home 
3.   Welcomed Bailey into my life
 4.   Went to Europe with my best friend
5.   Started post-grad PR school
 6.   Launched my very own blog
 7.   Took a risk and opened myself up
8.   Attended Teen Vogue Fashion U/ was in presence of DVF
 9.   Fell during Toronto fashion week 
  Joined a co-ed soccer team

As for New Years Resolutions,  I am always torn. I feel that resolutions are just a way for magazines and media to capitalize on people's insecurities about their bodies, jobs and relationships. On the other hand, I also think there is no better time to start fresh if that's what you're looking for. So I decided to make a little list :  

Resolutions & Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2010:

1. Start my PR career
2. Give back- get involved in more charities, become a mentor for young girls
 3. Be brave.
 4. Welcome a new baby cousin in February!
 5. Put health as a #1 priority- continue working out, eating healthy and staying active.
 6. Focus on relaxation and meditation- stress is not pretty. Who wants to look 50 when they're 30?
 7. Write. Write. Write. Write
 8. Find time to travel somewhere
9. Be less judgmental and quick to give an opinion
 10. Keep blogging!

That's all lovelies! What are your resolutions or memorable moments of 09?
