I’m a bit unconventional. (is this a surprise?)
I don’t “do” New Year’s Resolutions. This year I’m (still) not going to make resolutions. I’m going to strive, every day, to be better.
- Making incredible things that inspire myself and others
- Doing incredible things that inspire myself and others
- Loving each and every person that I meet
- Helping others without being asked
- Spending time with my family
- Smiling..a lot
- Savoring moments as they are instead of losing them to the future
- Becoming stronger and more vulnerable at the same time
- Taking chances
- Valuing my health
- Letting go of fear
- Writing more
I can’t believe I just teared up writing these, but I did. Sometimes you have to tap into your heart and let it be true and open.
This year, I want to be open to every opportunity that comes to me. Let myself be vulnerable. Scared. Excited. Ready. Not ready. Just where I need to be.
I want to spend ever more time with my family. I’ve grown to love and appreciate them even more over the last few months, and I know it is because they have shown how much they love and appreciate me through every (at first) confusing, scary, and exciting decision I have made and gut feeling I have had. I think that’s also part of growing up. Is realizing that your parents are so incredibly loving, ready, and able to support you every step of the way. And you also realize that they’re people too. With humor and fears and hobbies and love. There to be your friend as they guide and support you. This year, I decide to be that for myself and for the rest of the world.
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Resolve to be better. Decide to be better. And decide to be more alive.
