Looking Back & Looking Forward

Let’s face it 2013 was a crap year for most of us.  I don’t know what it was about 2013 but most people I know didn’t have a good one.  If I was superstitous I would say that was due to the presence of the number 13, but I’m not, so I have no idea why.

Still 2013 wasn’t all bad.  I wanted to make 2013 my year of travel and I definitely suceeded in doing that.  In 2013 I visted

Rome

Paris

Greece

Budapest

Prague

London

Not too shabby at all. In fact, pretty damn impressive.

In 2014 I still want to keep travelling.  If anything, 2013 has made me want to travel more.  However, travel will not be my primary focus.  In 2014, my mission is to find the joy.  I have been neglecting to find the joy in those everyday moments and for the sake of my mental health, I need to start doing this. I need to focus on the absurd stuff that makes me laugh uncontrollably.  I need to plan fun trips even if that trip is just to the Planetarium.  I need to stop focusing on the stuff that gets me frustrated and angry and start focusing on the things that make me feel good. Hopefully if I can do this, I will be in a much better headspace by the end of 2014 than I am at the beginning of it.

  1. You travelled well, I visited New Zealand again last year and took my partner for his first trip over there. Not sure if we’re going anywhere overseas this year so I’ll continue to live vicariously through your travel posts.

    Happy New Year from one of your quieter but consistent readers.

    • Being able to travel to so many wonderful countries is one of the benefits of living in Europe. It is just not viable when you live in Australia.
      I really need to get to NZ again, especially the South Island. It is just so gorgeous there.

      Have a wonderful 2014 and thanks for reading. :)
