This year I resolve… not to resolve.
I resolve to solve.
Oh, what a play on words, hmm?
This year, I spent a lot of time losing myself, finding myself, losing myself again, finding myself again, getting lost somewhere in the middle, and now finding this untapped bliss of incredible and pure productivity and happiness. Undying inspiration. Waking up at 6am because I want to.
I swear there’s nothing wrong with me, I just really enjoy waking up in the morning.
Getting along with my family, loving talking to them, and dare I say missing them. Sunday, I came back to Syracuse and I cried after I left my parents. They’re probably reading this and had no idea but I cried in the car on the way back. And I don’t cry. Ever. Ask anyone who knows me, I don’t like crying and I think it’s a waste of proper hydration.
But now that I’m back, I know what is right. I know what makes me tick. Writing. Content creation. Friends and family. Taking “ME” time.
Taking action. Making your goals happen, instead of hoping they’ll accomplish themselves.
This year, I don’t ask you to resolve. No. I ask you to follow your heart. Listen to yourself. Let your passion pull you where you need to go. Listen to your inner guide and decide to take action. Get to know yourself. It’s a scary, scary thing, but I promise, knowing yourself and listening to your true desires will lead you on the path to self-love and your higher purpose.
After all, the only New Year’s Resolution that matters is that you resolve to accomplish what you most want. What you most love. What you know you are supposed to be doing.
Dang, I just got all philosophical on you. Can you handle that? I can barely even handle that. The inside of your own mind can be a scary and wonderful place.
Note: It’s 2am on New Year’s Eve (Day?) and I am eating chocolate-covered almonds. I ate way too many not-so-good-for-me foods tonight and I’m cool widdit. You only live once, friends, so be healthy all the time, but remember: Weekends and holidays don’t count.
I’m totally kidding, that’s just what I like to tell myself sometimes. 100% healthy, 80% of the time. That’s the mantra and chocolate-covered almonds have their place whenever I dang well please.
I leave you with the tidbit I posted on Facebook tonight:
Grateful for an incredible 2012. Kicking off 2013 with nothing but joy, love, and happiness, with undying promise of exploration and action. This is the year we make our mark. The time is now. Follow your heart and lead a life you love. Change the game. Don’t let the game change you.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you, and most especially to those who have been following me for the last two and a half years. I love you and I hope you know that. xo
