♥ New Year, New Beginnings + 2014 Memory Jar ♥

Hello, lovelies! Sorry, I haven't posted for a while. It's because I was busy preparing for our mock exams, then came Christmas and New Year. So, I was pretty busy. I also got ill during the Christmas break and now that we are about to go back to school, I'm feeling unwell again :P

NEW YEAR is a time to start afresh, to forget the past and move on. If you had an awful 2013, well this is you chance to make it better. It is also good to start the Year with hope, courage, and optimism. Know that God will always be there for you to help you and as Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'. So surrender your life to God, because he will make a way when there seems to be no way! If you had amazing year last year, then keep doing what you have been doing and try and find simple ways to make it better, or make it the best! It's the Year of the Horse, so we better kick some ass and do our very best!

As what everyone says, 2014 is your new 365 paged book. So make a good one! Create memories, share your time with your loved ones and live life to the fullest!

Anyways, I don't have any beauty post today, but just my New Year's Resolution. I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and I wish you a magnanimous New Year! :) I'm making my list short, and I might add something along the year.

  1. Be more positive.
  2. Believe in myself. (I suggest you to listen to the song Believe in Me by Demi Lovato.)
  3. Start drawing again.
  4. Let myself know that I am more than enough.
  5. Be more faithful.
  6. Do things that are out of my comfort zone.
  7. Study more so I can achieve my full academic potential.
  8. Make myself stronger.

That is all I can think of for now. What's your New Year's resolution? Are any of them same as mine?  Comment down below :)

I also made my 2014 memory jar. If you don't know what this is, basically, you write the good things, even the smallest one that happen to you on little pieces of paper.
I saw a Facebook post about this and I thought it was a good idea. I was actually going to make one last year but I wasn't as keen in doing it. However, I decided  to definitely make one this year.
In this jar, you can include memories such as:
  • surprise gifts
  • accomplished goals
  • the beauty of nature
  • the "LOL" moments
  • daily blessings
  • and memories that are worth saving
At the end of the Year 2014, you can then open it and see the amazing and wonderful things that happened to you in 2014. I decided to put butterfly in mine because for me, butterfly symbolises hope.

If you are facing difficulties right now, remember that sometimes that hard mountain that you're climbing is just a grain of sand :)

Take care.

xoxo, Xyza
