2016 was a year to remember
I don’t know about you but every time I think about the year 2016 my face literally turns into something along the lines of pure disgust. For me, 2016 was a year filled with heartbreak and betrayal but the thing is I don’t want it to be that way. I don’t want to look back and remember how weak I felt I want to look back and think wow, what a great year, I’ve learnt so much and look at the person I am today.
I used to think that change can only happen at the beginning of a new year or rather I’ll only be successful at making my life better if I start changing as soon as the new year begins but then the new year comes round and for a day maybe a week if I’m lucky I make that change but then so easily those good habits start slipping an I’m back to my old self. Lazy, demotivate and just sad, those are feelings I end up carrying throughout the rest of the year in hopes that the next year I’ll do better and then the next year rolls by and it end up being a cycle of those same failures. The question is how do I get out of that cycle of negativity?
Two weeks into the new year and I haven’t made a single new year’s resolution I do however have a few general life goals that I would like to achieve whether it’s by the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2019 it doesn’t really matter as long as I know I’m working on it. I’ve also decided that I am not going to allow anyone else to make me feel small or like I can’t do the things I’ve set my mind to. The second you give someone else control how you feel is the moment you give up true happiness but in saying that it’s okay to receive help from the people that love you along the way but always remember how to stand on your own two feet.
That’s all for me for this week, let me know how your new year is going, do you have new year’s resolutions and what are they?
Exciting things are happening this year, so stay in touch!
