My plans for the New Year
My resolutions were usually the same, or variations of the same ones: exercise more, be more outgoing, tell [insert boy’s name] how I feel about him.
But you know what? I’m not doing that this year. Honestly, I could name a handfull of things I’d like to do (like become a songwriter, for example), but really, the only thing I really want – deeply and truly want – is to be happy. With or without any sort of romance to speak of. I want to be happy with myself. I want to be happy with my life. I want to do things that make me happy. I want to make those I love happy.
This is the year I’m going to be myself. I’m going to be who I am (a little quirky, of course), and not care what anyone else thinks. So many people try to be someone they’re not, and if I’ve learned anything over this last year, it’s that you have to be who you are, no matter what. In life, in love, in your career. Being anyone else is just letting yourself down. Why wouldn’t you want to show off all the awesomeness that is you?
Oh, and I’d also like to smile and laugh. A lot.
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? What are yours?
