Hey babes heyyy! Man, I have missed you friends. I am the worst I know. For the past year, I have started every blog post like this: sorry, I haven’t blogged lately…blah blah…I will be more consistent… blah blah… things are crazy and busy… blah blah blah. At the end of it all, it I haven’t left you babes with much to see or read and for that I am so sorry friends. 2015 will be more consistent when it comes to this little blog of mine. I am hoping to keep it simple and try and post 2-3 times a week, featuring birds & honey related weddings, editorials, projects and all other forms of radness. I want to post more quality over quantity! I’m also curious if there’s anything in particular you babe’s would like to see more of or not see at all? Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts on that. Also…remember that epic giveaway I had mentioned a while back? well it’s almost complete (I had to make sure to fill it with the best of the best) so be sure to check back in the early weeks of January for more info on that! Now, lets get to the serious stuff shall we :P
This year, like every other year has been such an eye opener. I want to say that a lot of things didn’t go my way but it wasn’t necessarily a negative thing. I learned so much this year. I learned to give people the benefit of a doubt. This is something I have always struggled with. I used to think that things were either black or white. That we only have option A or B. And that’s that! However, life isn’t black and white. Life consists of so many factors, so many colors and reasons that make us decide what we do or don’t do. We all have a million things that we are responsible for. It’s not always what it seems on our computer screens or instagram filled worlds so try and be a little more sympathetic to one another. Life is beautiful but it is always going to be a bumpy ride filled with highs and lows. So lets be kind to one another on this journey. We are all in this together yo!
This was a year of many firsts for me and it marked the first time in my life where I finally started saying NO to many things. I said no to job opportunities. At the time, I was super scared about that one…but I soon realized that in doing so, there was room for some really beautiful oppertunities and that was possible by taking on less. I know it sounds a little cray but its true. When you stop trying to please everyone and really think about what you are putting your name on, you have room for those special projects and clients that you normally wouldn’t because you’ve already planned your month out with a million so-so opportunities.
This was also the year where I said no to people who only want to spew negative bullshit. Ain’t nobody got time for that negative baggage. Turn on the news and for the most part, it’s filled with bad news, bad news, a cute puppy here or there and then more bad news. Don’t get me wrong you guys. I get that some days we need to vent to one another and I am down for that whenever you need. But, I am not down with talking smack about someone who is just trying to do the best they can in a shit situation. If we took that much energy into being supportive of one another I think we would find ourselves a little happier in all aspects of our lives.
So with all of that, I wanted to finish my little new years blurb with some of my goals for the new year! I want to continue working on those simple things I still struggle with. For me, that consists of taking better care of myself both mentally and physically. I still don’t eat breakfast. I still make excuses not to go get some fresh air and I still spend too much time on my phone. This year, I want to be extremely selfish with my time because…I don’t know what tomorrow holds for me so I want to spend the time that I do have happy and healthy with my loved ones (: with that, I bid you babes adieu! Happy New Years beautiful peeps! I hope 2015 is the best for all of us. Sending you guys loads of love and even more good vibes xoxo moni
