Life Livin' #3: New Year's Eve Reflections

9:29 AM

Hey beauties! This "Life Livin'" post is going to be a bit different from the ones we usually do. We're only a few hours away from 2016, and with all of the excitement and celebrations to come, we've also had some time to reflect on this year. 2015 has definitely opened our eyes and has taught us many lessons. It's given us motivation and inspired us in so many ways. Everyone knows how much travel influences us. It really opens up our hearts and minds to all of the possibilities the world has to offer and gives us a fresh perspective on things. For the first time this year, we got the chance to travel to Miami. Being there made us realize that there's more to life than what we see every day. Whether it's new scenery, new places, meeting new people, making new friends, or even finding true love, the possibilities and opportunities that travel has to offer are truly endless, and that's definitely motivating and inspiring in itself. We look forward to much more travel in the new year ahead. 

Another way that 2015 has motivated and inspired us is through the success of our family and friends. From landing the job of their dreams, becoming homeowners, or even falling in love, watching many of our family and friends experience their own success not only makes us happy, but allows us to see that with hard work, determination, and belief in ourselves, we can all have the desires of our hearts. 

If there's any lesson that 2015 has truly taught us, it's to hold on to your faith, remain patient, and to stay positive. Just as anyone else does, we all endure our struggles and challenges from day to day. No one is perfect. We've realized over time that it's okay to not have all of the answers, to not have it all together. That's life. 2015 has shown us that everything happens in its own time, not in our time. Our faith, patience, and positivity play a major role in the outcome of our situations. No matter how close or far our desires may be, if you keep these 3 things in mind, you'll ultimately receive what you're looking for. 

Finally, the biggest thing we've taken away from this year is to live the life you've always imagined. Do what truly makes you happy. Take that dance class, book that trip you've always wanted to take (it was way overdue anyway), start that blog, try the restaurant you've been dying to go to, pursue that special someone, follow your dreams...whatever you deeply desire, DO IT! Don't let anyone make you feel bad for doing what you love. Life truly begins at the end of your comfort zone. It's a saying that we've been living by to this day! This is where the magic truly happens, where doors are opened, and where opportunities present themselves. If there's things you've been wanting to do, but you've put them off, don't wait another minute! Start now! Each day, month, or year is another chance to start again and get it right. 

We plan to take all of these lessons we've learned into 2016. This is the year we want to make all about living our best lives--happiness, positive thinking/doing, doing everything we've always wanted to do, accomplishing our goals and dreams, stepping outside of our comfort zones...truly living our lives! What are some things 2015 has taught you? What do you look forward to in 2016? We'd love to find out! We hope you guys have a safe and happy New Year ♥
