No Resolutions, Just Happiness

Let me tell you something, my dear friends - life is pretty surreal at the moment.


2017 started in the most amazing way for me and I can't even begin to describe how grateful and lucky I feel. Each time I look at myself in the bathroom mirror I see this happy girl looking back at me and after not having her around for many, many years it feels so amazing to be back.

A few days ago, before the NYE madness, I decided to skip on one usually very important tradition of mine - buying a Moleskine daily planner and bought their red notebook instead. Why the sudden change, you may ask?

Well, after years and years of trying to plan out EVERYTHING, the good old life taught me that most things simply cannot be planned. Especially in this crazy profession of mine where projects and jobs tend to change faster than the speed of sound. One day you have something, the next it might be gone for good.

Instead I started to write down wishes and hopes for the new year.
Not over the top ones, but those little things my heart really, truly wants.
And I've decided to leave several blank pages so that my list can grow with time.

So many people around me tend to discuss this new beginning as something that requires a new you. And that's why I'm so against resolutions. Most of the time it happens to turn out that those things aren't actually what you want for yourself, but what media and so many others tell you should want for yourself. Bollocks. Don't read those headlines. Use your own head and think for yourself. No one knows you better than you.

Stop telling me to join the gym. I won't.
Stop forcing me to eat healthier. My food is just fine as it is.
Stop telling me I should save money to buy an aparment. I'm happy this way.
Stop telling me I should say yes when all I want is to scream no. I won't listen.
Stop telling me what love should look like, what amazing sex looks like and how I should let someone know I love him. I have my own ways, thank you.

For 2017 I want, need and will work on HAPPINESS. On a daily basis.
Crazy happiness. LOVE. So much love.
I want to be able to feel every second of my life. Every second of a day.
I want to be more present.
I want to love with all my heart.
I want to laugh. Even when things don't go as planned.
I honestly want to fall deeply in love with life.

Because, the moment you start going in that direction, everything else starts to fall into a place.

  1. I don't make resolutions, I feel much happier calling them goals and I haven't set any for the new year because right now I'm happy as I am and don't feel the need to! Glad you're so happy at the moment!

  2. Prestala sam planirati od početka 2015. Sjećam se momenta kada sam dobila novi planer u kojem sam odmah zapisala moje želje, ciljeve, planove, a onda nakon samo mjesec dana mi je otac preminuo. Par dana poslije samo sam zabilježila najgori dan u životu i pospremila planer. Od tada, jedino što zapisujem su ideje i narudžbe. Imam blokove za skiciranje i to je to. Sada nastojim maksimalno da uživam u svakom momentu mog života bez da unaprijed planiram. Moje želje zapisujem i ubacujem u teglu, a onda svake godine otvorim teglu i čitam koje sam ispunila, koje su ostale i da li su mi i dalje bitne. U glavnom sve su bazirane na to da budem sretna i da usrećujem. :) I da znaš, tako mi je drago što si ovoliko sretna i ispunjena. Ja upijam tu tvoju energiju. <3

    1. Život nam zaista ponekad na najteže načine dokaže da se ništa ne može isplanirati, već da treba živjeti u sadašnjosti i maksimalno iskorištavati svaki dan koji nam je dan...Diiivna mi je ova ideja sa željama i teglicom, vjerujem da je super osjećaj istresti ih sve na kraju godine negdje na pod ili stol i vidjeti što se sve u međuvremenu promijenilo! :) Puno ti hvala na lijepim riječima, draga moja! I vidimo se ubrzooo <3 <3

  3. kako si ovo dobro napisala! Slažem se da te neke tehnike, odluke i počeci koji zahtijevaju da se potpuno promijenimo nemaju smisla. Svi mi moramo naći neka svoja pravila. Planiranje isto može biti dvosjekli mač. Ako svaki trenutak dana isplaniramo, zapravo postajemo manje produktivni jer si ne dopuštamo vremena za smišljanje novih stvari i kreativne ideje- a to je ona sila koja nas zapravo treba tjerati naprijed. Nema ništa bolje nego vidjeti u ogledalu sretno lice i biti zadovoljan. Ne znaš koliko si mi dobre energije prenijela ovim postom! Samo naprijed i sve najbolje ti želim u ovoj godini.

    1. Puno ti hvala, draga moja Ivana! Potpisujem ovo da svi moramo naći svoja pravila, po meni je to jedini ispravni način funkcioniranja jer jedino smo mi sami kadri prepoznati koje su nam stvari bitne, što želimo mijenjati u vlastitim životima i zašto...mnogi mogu savjetovati, ali jedino mi znamo odgovore na sva pitanja. Želim ti predivnu godinu! :*

  4. Cheers to a year of accepting yourself - flaws and all. Sometimes planning is overrated, and it's better to simply fly by the seat of your pants!

  5. Beautiful post! I love the idea of just letting life come, but still focusing on the things that you can control and WANT to achieve/change. I chose a word for 2017, because it fits things I want to work on, but it's things I personally want and not what society is telling me to do. I'm going to do it my way.

  6. Happy New Year! I wish you the happiness you feel now to be part of your life from now on on a daily basis! That's true you cannot plan everything but I don't know what would I do without my planner. I am way to forgetful to just break free from planning hahaha Love, Iga x www.igaberry.com

  7. Naježila sam se posle poslednje rečenice :) <3 Ma bravo! Neka si im rekla :D I znaš šta? Osobama sa takvim stavom, iskrenošću i odlućnošću ni ne treba tamo neki savet. Ne treba nikome, kažem ja, ali takvima kao ti naročito. Svako od nas najbolje zna šta želi, šta ne i šta može ili ne može da uradi po tom pitanju. Veliki alpauz od mene :))) <3
