I hope this is the year you stop lying about what it is you want in life.
I hope you follow your heart and stop ignoring what you know is true.
I hope this is the year you stop making excuses of why you haven’t accomplished that goal.
I hope this is the year you tell someone how you feel, even though you’re scared of what they’ll say.
I hope this is the year you find the courage to take chances and strength to let go of things in your past.
I hope this is the year you follow your instinct and gut when it tells you something isn’t right.
I hope this is the year you stop saying yes when you really mean no but don’t want to disappoint people.
I hope you stop disappointing yourself.
I hope you learn to be selfish even though it’s not like you.
I hope this is the year you stop associating yourself with people you don’t actually like but tolerate.
I hope you stop telling yourself the relationship is ‘complicated’ and accept the person is an asshole and not deserving of you.
I hope you walk away.
I hope this is the year you stop believing other people’s lies and call them out on it.
I hope you know you deserve the truth, from both others and yourself.
I hope you stop lying about your job when I know it took you everything to get out of bed this morning.
I hope this is the year you get on that plane and don’t look back.
I hope you stop waiting for the weekend and go make your weeks worthwhile.
I hope this is the year you find a job you love and find yourself along the way.
And I hope you work not because you have to but because you want to.
I hope you’re working because you like it, not because it’s distracting you from a reality you don’t want to face.
I hope this is the year you find your purpose.
Because that’s what it’s about.
I hope this is the year you stop saying, ‘I’ll be happy when…’
…when you get this or that or end up there. Because when you get it, you’ll realize it isn’t enough.
What is enough is finding something money can’t buy.
I hope this is the year you find a love that scares you but don’t use that as an excuse to push them away.
I hope you stop lying and saying you’re ‘too busy for a relationship’ or ‘too into your career’ because I know it’s not true.
I hope this is the year you fall so deeply in love it ruins you.
I hope you realize, the only person stopping you from achieving happiness is you.
I hope you start with today.
Start by following your heart.
In a world full of liars, the best thing and most difficult thing you can be is honest. Remember, lies always have a way of catching up to us, even if it’s the lies we tell ourselves.
I hope this is the year you be honest and I hope that honesty gets you everything you could want.
