Aspirations for 2015

You probably have wondered when I was going to put up the obligatory “New Years Resolution” blog post like every other blogger you follow. Well to be honest, I sat down to write that post about 3 times and for some reason it just wasn't coming to me. So let’s try this a 4th time….

It honestly feels weird typing 2015. It sounds so futuristic! Like one of those years you never thought would come. Yet, here it is. Every year honestly feels like it goes by faster and faster. When I think about all the possibilities that 2015 holds for me, it makes me so excited to think of the amazing memories that are waiting to be made this coming year. 2015 is going to be a big year. I’m going to turn 20 (like, what?!), this summer will mark my half way mark of my college experience, I will be spending the month of May in Italy, and possibly spending September- December studying abroad in Europe! In the next 12 months, I know I will be pushed outside of my comfort zone, learn invaluable lessons, and ultimately grow and change as a person.

I think about the second or third time I sat down to write this post I finally googled the definition of resolution. Not because I didn't know what it meant, I guess I googled it just hoping for some inspiration or ideas.

Resolution:: a firm decision to do or not to do something

 I don’t think you should just sit down and come up with resolutions that you came up with as you wrote. I think they should be things that you have thought long and hard about and truly wish to improve upon. So many people blog about their New Years Resolutions just as another post. This year I don’t want to make resolutions. The definition of resolutions just sounds so harsh, “to do or not to do something.” Instead of changing a habit completely and deciding not to do it any longer I want to focus on improving different aspects of my life.

Then I googled the term aspiration…

Aspiration:: a hope or ambition of achieving something

In 2015 I hope that I will achieve something great. I want to strive to become a stronger, more confident, woman with a better understanding of myself. I aspire to write a 365 page book, filled with memories and lessons and surprises. So without further delay, these are my 2015 aspirations.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for me in 2015! It's definitely going to be a year to remember!

What are your New Year's aspirations

Remember this year,



P.S. These are great iphone backgrounds for the new year! This one or this one!


  1. Using aspiration rather than resolution makes the new year seem so much less daunting! The "stay determined" aspiration really resonated with me, especially when it's so easy to lose focus or give up when things get tough.

  2. Great post! Love how you changed resolutions into aspirations. Happy new year!

  3. I love that you are doing aspirations instead of resolutions! I decided to do goals for 2015 as opposed to New Year's Resolutions- I have a post about it that I would love for you to check out!

    xoxo, Abby

  4. I love the idea of flirting with adventure in 2015, my goals always involve some version of traveling more and aspiring to be better!
