Sunday Thoughts

Hey Guys!
I'm currently sitting in my bed right now, watching Harry Potter and eating a Nerd Rope. All the fairy lights are on and candles lit, so I am one happy bug. It's been such a nice Sunday today, just relaxing with my family and doing some cleaning around the house. Sundays are definitely my favorite day of the week!

Today I thought I would share a quote that I found a while back with you guys :)

I absolutely adore this quote. When I was younger, I always had such big dreams and plans for my life. Today, I still have dreams and plans, but sometimes it seems so scary planning my life because it is now so real. It was very easy when I was seven years old to say that someday I would be a famous author, or an archaeologist working in Egypt. Now I have to think about a career that will allow me to be successful and able to support myself, so it's easy to lose sight of what would make me truly happy.  When I saw this quote, I instantly fell in love. It really puts dreams in perspectives, and it is so true. If you aren't actively pursuing your own dreams, you are probably working to help support someone else's. While it is never a bad thing to help someone out, it is just as important to make your dreams come true. The world today doesn't encourage dream-making, but rather money-making, and I think it has resulted in a lot of unhappy people. My parents have always told me to do what I love, and to not worry about money. While this is a very admirable thing to do, the world today makes that a very hard task to achieve.
However, 2013 really taught me to do what I love. I have realized what I love to do, and maybe what careers I would like to have when I am older. I also learned what I don't like to do, which is actually really helpful to me now, so I know what not to study in college. Since 2014 is the year that I will graduate high school (what?!), I'm glad to have figured all that out in 2013. All in all, it was a good year because I learned a lot about myself, and about life in general. I am much more confident about someday moving out and living on my own, because I finally have confidence in myself. I feel like I have really broken out of my shell this past year, and I began to learn more about myself. I still have so much more to go, so I am really looking forward to 2014. I have a lot of goals that I am working to achieve, and I feel so ready. 2014 is going to be such a huge year; I am turning 18, graduating from high school, going to college, the list goes on and on. I am really hoping for a great year to come, and I think going into the new year with a good attitude is the best way to tackle it. So, I don't have any new years resolutions per se, but rather goals to accomplish and dreams to begin. I have started writing a book and I am excited to see where that will take me, and I plan to work on my blog a lot more. 
So, I hope you all had a good 2013, and I hope 2014 is even better!

What are your goals or resolutions for 2014?

Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your day! :)
