Another dose of Monday's musings :)

I just can't believe that it's a new year! Tomorrow, I start my first day at my new internship and I could not be more excited. I just know that this semester will hold wonderful new things, but it is very surreal that I am finally entering the end of my college career. The time is quickly approaching to pack away the memories and open a new chapter in my life. As a person that tends to always romanticize taking the next step in life, I'm really excited. But, it is also the very first time in my life that I do not know exactly where I'll be in 6 months. AH!

But all fears and excitement aside, I am trying very hard to start this new year with a very clean slate. The past month- or few months rather- I have been doing a lot of soul searching. It's been difficult but I finally came to the realization that Shakespeare had it right when he penned the adage "To thine own self be true." Ultimately, love isn't about finding someone that you have things in common with or, more importantly, finding some that "completes" you. I've realized that love is finding someone that compliments you, someone that loves you for you. And sometimes people come into your life for a reason, but it may not be the reason you expected. So this year, I'm going to strive to be the very best that I can be and hopefully that will take me where I belong.

As the great Carrie Bradshaw put it:
"But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."
