To simplify things as it is an ultimate form of sophistication. Having more does not equal to happiness. Purge the unnecesary and decrease clutter.
Be adventurous, be wacky and out of the box sometimes. Go to places, explore what's new and who knows you'll discover what you've been wanted. See challenge as a stepping stone to make yourself better. If it is always easy, where's the fun?
The only way to do a great work is to love what you do. It is an utter bullshit of saying fashion is a glamourous world filled with small talk and pure happiness. Lots of work goes behind the scene and yes every job has its own challenge. Same goes to what you've been doing. I always believe to never take a job only because of its money. I keep telling myself to chase my dream, to follow my passion, and being true to myself. All those money, fame, or whatever it is will follow.
To have no regrets, leaving the past behind and forgive someone's and your own mistakes. Don't blame others for your mistake because you can't fix yourself by breaking someone else. Those who love you are not fooled by your mistakes. They will still see your beauty even though you feel ugly or the good side of you when you feel so broken.
Be with people that bring the best out of you. Cut out the dramas and save your time for something better. Remember that you never lose friends, instead you lose people masquerading as friends. And you're better off without it.
Fill your days with magic and good madness. Eat good food and make time to do some exercise. Buy good books and make time to read them. Spare time to do your hobby.
Begin a life you've been dreaming of but remember that good things take time. Believe that anything is possible as long as you work for it. Start each day with goals and prayers. In the end, happiness is always a choice - always put it in your hand and not in someone else's. And i hope sometime in this year, you surprise yourself.
ps: My new year eve was wacky and super fun. To be able to dance under moon on sandy beach, loose myself in music, gathered with the people i love and watched the fireworks denoting the change of the year. Pic above was taken during the NYE. How's yours?
