2016. Wow. You certainly know how to sneak up on a girl.. I often feel like people over exaggerate New Years, we say we’re going to start fresh- find love, lose weight, connect with old friends and finally go for our dream job. But what does the New Year actually entail? A lot of disappointments, drunk texts and guilt trips when we “accidentally” forget our running shoes at home so we can’t make it to the gym today.
To be honest I’m at a point in my life where I’ve realized that just because it’s a New Year doesn’t mean I should wait until January 1 to start bettering myself. I hit the reset button all the time, I’ll promise to do better on my diet on Monday, or I’ll stop bringing my iPad to bed with me so I get a better sleep. My running shoes mock me all the way from the garage. I’m not perfect, I’ve got miles to go.
I’ve learned that in order to better myself, I can’t expect myself to be able to obtain everything on my goal list- at least right away. I work my butt off trying to get to whe I want to be and I let other things fall to the wayside in the meantime. I’ve decided to better myself but not because it’s a New Year but simply for the reason that I deserve my own attention. It’s my turn to focus on myself and let me be the best person I can be. It won’t be easy, it won’t be fast and I will have to recommit and reset often but I owe it to myself for all the years of self doubt and lack of confidence.
Wish me luck! X
