Let’s talk about 2017, okay. So for the most part I had a pretty crappy 2016 and you know what? I ain’t about that life. 2016 seriously got the best of me, so I’m gonna make 2017 the best of me.
I did a 101 in 1001 a while back, and I didn’t accomplish everything on that list. I also have two major goals I’m working on from the business side of life – focusing a lot more on this blog & launching my side business all while finishing school. As well as stuff from the list I didn’t get around to doing.
I’m making 2017 the year for me. I’m going to say no more, stay in more, realize 26 isn’t all that bad, do things for me. Get healthy and watch people go “when the hell did she get her life together”. Less hot mess, more I run a company, hi nice to meet you. I’m pledging to make 2017 as organized as my Pinterest boards. No more putting my happiness in others, I control my happiness no one else. I’m going to wake up each day and try to be the best possible person I can be in the world. Put out more positive energy in the world. Understand that everyone is going through something I don’t know about and treat them with kindness. But I’m going to make myself accountable – and do check ins. Adventure more, do things I’ve always wanted to do.
Getting your life together is exhausting, and for all those who have their lives sorted out. I applaud you. And when you start this journey you will realize a lot about yourself to find out who you really are. Tim McGraw said it best “I’m learning who you’ve been ain’t who you’ve got to be”
One thing I want to remind of is: YOU DO NOT OWE ANYONE ANYTHING BUT YOURSELF.
So here’s to the remaining days of 2016 and here’s to the bright future 2017 & I have ahead!
(PS: I didn’t wait till 2017, I started in the last little bit of 2016 😉)
