Instead of running away from vulnerability, let’s take the rest of this year to intentionally make connections and let people love us!
I swore all that was necessary was a definite beginning date and a little push. So, there I was on January 1st, standing at the starting line eagerly anticipating a new start.
After seeing the actual numbers in my bank account, I was shocked by how much of my income went towards buying coffee every day or going out for drinks. The numbers don’t lie. Cutting back on alcohol and coffee saves major bills.
No more lofty goals like “Exercise more” or “Become a better person.” I’m talking brass-tacks, stripped down to the core stuff that is dumbed down so much you can’t help but meet them.
If you aren’t moving forward, you are falling back. So if you’re ready to embrace a little turbulence, and a lot of fear (that weird heady feeling of excitement in your gut), then this is your guide on how to re-invent yourself this year.
For the past few months, I’ve felt like a potato. Kind of sad, unmoving, semi-mashed. I was doing a successful job of ignoring my health and pulling the “I’ll deal with this later” card. Which, turns out, means you rarely will do it later. Because later just keeps being…later.
The high maintenance, never satisfied friend that makes you feel eternal guilty.
Some of these changes may seem synonymous or trivial, but a resolution is a decision to do or not do something. An intention is an aim and makes it more hopeful. Words like never can stop can lead to all-or-nothing attitudes and make it harder to get back on track.
Be healthy, but not obsessive.
