Hello World! Yeah, I'm alive...I just haven't been posting via Blogger or Facebook too much lately, but that was so last year...one of the things I plan on doing more of this year is writing, so look forward to that!
When a new year rolls around you can usually categorize people into two groups, those who make resolutions and those who don't. I have always been one to make resolutions whether big or small, I find it exciting, kind of a test to see what I can do when I put my all into it. Last year I made a resolution to do what I wanted to do, and to let go of the insecurities I was holding inside me...that resolution took me down to the South of Mexico, where I spent 5 months learning Spanish, snorkeling, teaching ESL, working as a receptionist, and making some incredibly loving and crazy friends. 2011 was exactly everything I've been waiting for, and everything I needed. And now I'm here at the start of the new year kind of wondering what I want to do,what I'm going to do, and what I need to do this year. Like, for example...I WANT to just travel the whole year and forget about the world, what I'm going to do is what I need to do, like finish up school and use my traveling money for a car instead, focus on self improvement, and being "responsible." Because though I can write a novel about all the things I want to do and plan on doing, I won't get anywhere without working for them.
|DREAMS MEAN WORK|
Things I'd Like To Do This Year:
Do a TON of Charity work
Read Hunger Games Series
Stay in school (NO out of the country traveling during school)
Expand drawing and painting skills
Make new friends
Do something EXTRAORDINARY
There are probably a hundred more that I will come up with along the way...and some things I am keeping to myself, but whether I get through them all or only a few, I can at least say I tried for something.
What do you believe you deserve in life?
Go for it.
Happy New Years everyone!
