I love new things.
I love new years, new pages in books, new books, new clothes, new makeup, new gadgets ( you get the point) I even love newborns a tinsy bit more than older children.
There is abundant potential in new things. I love the symbolic fresh start. Who cares what you did in 2015? You have the opportunity to make it better or rectify your path in 2016.
I made my objectives in November. I even have a notebook dedicated to 2016.This would be my first time making new year resolutions and frankly keeping them. Between me and you I cannot for the life of me keep a new year’s resolution for more than two months. I get bored plus, my interests and I evolve. What I wanted to achieve in January is not the same thing I want to do in February.
2016 though is different. I am not saying that just because it is new. Well, I am but, that is not the ONLY reason. Frankly, I am getting tired of the failed starts, the failed execution swiftly followed by depression and finally resignation to a life I do not want. Therefore, I hope 2016 will be different. I will work to make it different.
I would not say I have the typical new year resolution check list. Instead of looking at actions I decided to look at results. At the end of the year my ultimate goal is to connect with as many people as I could possibly have. I want to share my story to as many people out there as I can. My journey and my struggles are not unique from yours. We could be isolated yet we are going through the same thing. Therefore, I would love for people to impact MY life with their stories. Yes, YOUR stories inspire and give me hope to keep pushing on.
In addition, I would want to be a more holistic individual. I would like to strive for a balance in my life. A balance I believe was lacking in previous years. It was either full out business or no business for example. I would either bum the whole day or go to the extreme and work until I fell ill.
The most important result I aim to achieve this year is to push the ceilings of my imagination and capability. I want to actively, put myself in situations that make me uncomfortable. There is no other way to expand and grow. It is a very tall order. Writing it is definitely easier than executing it.
Lastly, I wish to be in the moment. In the now. I have struggled with this for many years. Though, I used to daydream a lot more in yesteryears than I am currently. There is nothing wrong with dreaming about the future. However, I was looking forward to the future state that I forgot the now. This frustrated me even further because I was not reaching my goal. I did not realize I had been shifting the goal post all this time. If I had taken time to be here in the present I would appreciate more the blessings that have come my way.
Until next time
