Recently, I wrote an article on New Year's Eve getaways for LAIY. I had it all planned out. My boyfriend and I will not go to any crazy rager, have to talk to a single doorman, or spend more than minimum wage on any alcoholic beverage. However, as it turns out, I'm writing a new article, and it's called....
“How I Tried to Get Away But Ended Up Staying in L.A.”
I tried, I really tried. I wanted to get away from the hullabaloo (if I'm allowed to use that word) of New Year's festivities. I didn't want to have to do my hair or dress to the nines to count down the seconds to a happy new year. I wanted to be in a hot tub and greeting the new year with comfort and leisure and no great expectations except some peace and quiet. Of course, as with all plans, there's always the risk that it will all come crashing down like a gigantic glowing orb from the east.
So, what should you do when your plans fall through? Smile, because you know you're on your way to doing something better. Why worry about what you could be doing instead of making what you are doing the best thing ever?
Lo and behold, here is the only New Year's Resolution I'll ever need, and a new article is born. Love what you are doing, if you lament anything you are not doing then go ahead and do it. If you can't do it yet, find some way to make it possible, build up those skills first, then do it. Don't spend so much time thinking and not enough time doing. Everything takes time. Do it now.
P.S. Yes, this means Tropic of Unicorn Blog is coming back! Happy New Year!!
