A little early for this post? Possibly. But, there’s no time to start working toward your goals like the present, right? Speaking of the present, let’s jump right into my New Year’s resolutions. I’m keeping it short and sweet since as you’ll soon see I get easily distracted. I’m also focusing purely on the mind and soul this time around. Once I get those two on track I’m sure my body will follow suit.:
2. Be you. One shouldn’t have to make it a goal to be themselves, but sometimes we lose track of what’s important. Recently, I did something that was completely out of character for me. I’m really upset about it – not just because the outcome ended poorly – but because I went against who I am and what I believe in. On the same topic of losing sight of who I am, an ex-boyfriend didn’t want me to move up here (especially to NYC) because he said it would change me in a negative way and he didn’t want to see that happen. I don’t want to ever see that happen no matter where I’m located! Though we don’t speak anymore, I often think about what he told me. I use it as motivation to make sure I stay grounded and true to myself. I take pride in being a fairly unique individual. I know who I am, and I normally stand my ground pretty firmly (almost to a fault because I can be stubborn). I don’t ever want to lose that for anyone or anything – whether it be a man or Manhattan – which is why “be you” makes my list this year.
