Hey girl heyy, its 2017 and its time to set goals for the year!
I hate when people say, “ I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. You can start a resolution anytime of year. It doesn’t have to be right now.”
You can start in July. I have full faith in your pretty self that you can get shit done.
But you know what, I love the idea of a new year. It’s the feeling of a fresh start. It’s a designated time to start something new with less criticism… because everyone else is trying something new too.
This year lets:
Lets do more of what we want to do.
I’ve always been the type of person that will do whatever it takes to make someone else happy, sacrificing my happiness in the long run. That’s how I’ve always been. I very rarely do things that I like to do. And when I do do them, I find myself trying to make sure that whomever I’m with is enjoying themselves more. And if they aren’t- I cave in and do whatever it is they want to do.
I can honestly say that I can count how many times I’ve been TRULY happy this past year on one hand. No, I’m not a depressed person, I’m just too concerned with how other people feel and wanting them to be happy more than I am with my own happiness. And that’s not healthy. I want to be happy all the time. I want to do things that fill my heart constantly.
I want to do what I want do. So this year, I will.
Lets believe that we can do anything we set our mind to.
I always have these ideas and game plans but I never follow through with them. I never think that I can achieve them. This also plays hand in hand with my confidence level.
I want to do all these amazing things but get discouraged as soon as there’s a bump in the road.
But not this year.
This year I will follow through. I will prove to myself that I can, and I will.
Lets try new things.
I try to try new things as much as possible, but I tend to have reservations and doubts.
This year I want to try everything that I have the option to try WITHOUT reservations.
I’m sure there will be things I don’t like. Hopefully, there will be new found likes that outweigh the don’t likes.
I’ll never know until I try.
So, lets try.
Lets climb out of debt.
Gahhh. That four letter word. DEBT. I hate that word. I hate the baggage that comes with that word.
This year I need to set a plan to get me the hell out of debt. I need to connect with I financial advisor that will help me pay off my loans. I HAVE TO.
This is the single most important thing that is holding me back from living and enjoying my life.
Lets take chances.
This year, lets take chances. Lets do things that are totally out of the norm. I’m the type of person who needs structure and a plan. Change stresses me out. Something about not knowing the end result gives me crazy anxiety.
I want to leap into something whole heartedly this year. Something that I’ve always wanted to do but have been too afraid to.
I don’t want to look back 10 years from now and regret the chances I never took just to play it safe.
Lets enjoy what the world has to offer.
Earth is such a beautiful place, with hidden gems around every corner. I want to take advantage of this and spend more time I nature this year.
I want to take more hikes, drink coffee on top of mountains, swim in freezing cold waters, breathe in the smell of raw untouched earth.
Nature has a special way of recharging the soul.
Lets blog our heart out.
Blogging is something I’ve always been interested in, but haven’t been consistent with. This year I need to stick with it. It’s something that I truly enjoy doing and want to grow.
In 2017, I plan on blogging until my little fingers fall off.
Lastly and most importantly:
Lets have confidence.
You can’t accomplish anything without having the confidence to start it in the first place. Whether it be confidence when looking in the mirror or confidence when taking chances, confidence needs to be there.
Let’s to leave doubt in 2016 and focus on confidence in 2017.
With a new year comes a fresh start. Make 2017 your year.
