H-e-l-l-o there .. I know its been a while since my last post but have no fear I am back. TBH it was hard AF to think of a good topic that would
top my last post but then I thought to myself fack it – I’ll just ramble about New Year shiz.
Here we go:
So it’s now 2017 .. dayum, like what? Doesn’t 2017 sound super futuristic??
Well it does to me ..
Growing up I always wrote out my New Year resolutions and made an effort to accomplish all of them through out the year. This year is no exception .. I of course have the cliches: exercise more, eat healthier, save money, swear less. But I also added some resolutions that will hopefully make me a better person in 2017.
Looking back on 2016 .. I definitely had some really high HIGHs and some really low LOWs.
I feel as each year comes to an end I find myself saying the same sh*t : It’s a new year and I am going to be a new me. Classic right?
But for real this year I am determined to make some big changes ..
Starting with rez numero uno: “To be more open-minded”
Not just to new experiences but people as well .. I found myself being pretty judgmental in 2016 and I don’t want to be that type of person. I am still in the process of trying to find myself and who I am .. The last thing I need is someone being judgmental or close minded towards me and my journey. With that being said I need to do the same to others by not judging their journey. Because at the end of the day aren’t we all just trying to figure out this “so-called” life we live?
Answer: yaaaaaas bisssssh!!
Rez dos: “Communicate my feelings/opinions more”
This one is definitely going to be hard one for me .. I consider myself a people pleaser, a yes man if you will. I sometimes worry that if I don’t give the answer or opinion I know someone wants to hear that it’ll have a negative impact on my relationship with said person. I experienced this a lot in 2016: saying I want to do something when in reality I didn’t. Communication is key to every aspect of life: work, family, personal .. I don’t want to change my opinions or feelings towards a situation just because I am unsure of what the outcome or repercussions will be.
Rez tres: “Be more considerate of others”
I can be pretty damn selfish at times .. and I am not
proud of it. I sometimes act like I have a chip on my shoulder and I honestly don’t know why .. I want to be more considerate to not only the people I surround myself with in my everyday life but strangers as well. I think that everyone is a little selfish at times, we are obviously all human. But I want to make a conscious effort to take into consideration other peoples feelings and thoughts by putting them before myself.
Rez cuatro: “Always be positive AF”
Posi vibez only y’all – I like to think that I am an extremely positive person. But I do have those days where I am in a seriously negative funk .. My plan for 2017 is to have as little of those bad days as possible. Instead of focusing in on and harvesting those negative aspects that may have cause that funk – I will focus on the positive things happening in my life and will then hopefully realize that nothing is as bad as it seems. Hashtag no bad days ..
It’s almost been 2 weeks since 2017 has started .. & besides Alabama
losing to Clemson in the National Championship – I am feeling pretty great .. I am looking forward to all the new people I’ll meet, experiences I’ll try and adventures I’ll go on through-out this year.
My 2016 was rocky to say the least but I facking made it through – bring it on 2017, I plan to make you my literal b*tch in the nicest, most open-minded, considerate & positive way.
Welp, that’s all I have for now .. until next time!
PS. HAPPY FACKING NEW YEAR YOU MOFO – make it your best year yet ❤
