A New Year

I don't know about you, but I'm definitely ready for a change of seasons! It's been a really long and trying year and I'm ready for a change.

This year's resolution is different than all the other ones I've made in the past. In the past it was about accomplishing a goal, or trying to work towards something for my future. This year's resolution is totally different though. I want my resolution to try to make each day the best that I can make it.

So often I become sidetracked by what I want to be doing in the future that I forget about what I'm doing and should be focusing on right now. It's really hard to do that at times. Especially while I've been applying to schools and trying to figure out what to do for my future. And let's face it - it's fun to think about the future sometimes and what I've been dreaming of it. But if I'm truly pursuing what I love right now the future will play itself out and turn into that dream. I forget that a lot.

So this year my resolution is to take everyday as it comes and focus on what is right in front of me instead of the future. It's going to be a process, but I'm going to at least strive for it.

What are your New Year's day resolutions?! I want to hear them!

P.S. New garments and photo shoots are on the way! I've been so busy with applications that I haven't had time to post them, but they're on their way!


  1. Oh Esther, you are so wise :). So very wise! Happy New Year to you...I look forward to tracking your progress ;)

    My resolution is simple, yet needed. My goal is to get in more family time, more memories. Because life is fleeting...

  2. You are such an inspiration!
    Wishing you a very blessed 2013!



  3. I definitely agree with what you're saying here! I was so busy in my last year of highschool -- you have to make sure to spend time with your friends and family too. It's not just about the future but about making memories during this special year. Happy new year.

  4. Ahh yes, change is very welcomed right now! Good change that is. I have loved reading your blog and being inspired by all your lovely projects (and pictures).

    My New Years resolution is to be like Paul (the Apostle). He ate and drank and slept eternal life. Jesus was his very breath, the soul of his soul, the heart of his heart, the life of his life. I want to be like that! For me to live is Christ (Phil. 1:21). So my New Years resolution is, by God's grace, "Bring it on!" Christ is my life. And after all with Christ, life is a glorious adventure!

    "Oh, come on, Pole, buck up. After all, it is an adventure."
    - C.S Lewis, Eustace/SC

    A very Happy New Year to you Esther! You'll be in my prayers as you embark on the new adventures that life brings! College, design and all that jazz. Many blessings to you and yours, and keep up the blogging!
