Make 2018 the year you try that hobby that you have neglected torso long. Make it the year in your life where you dive into activities that you truly love. Sing more. Dance more. Paint more.

Make 2018 the year you take yourself out on a date. Put your favorite lipstick on. Wear those high heels that make your legs look miles long. Wear your favorite black dress. Order yourself a meal without worrying about calories or your weight. Order your favorite glass of champagne. Relish in this time with yourself. Relish in this time, enjoying only your own company.
Make 2018 the year you accept your faults. Embrace your curves and the fact that you are bad at math and the fact that you can’t keep a secret. Life was never meant to become a place filled with hate. So don’t hate the unique features and personality quirks that make you, you.
