It’s the first Monday of the New Year! If any of you have made resolutions, today’s the day to actually take them seriously...and for those of you who didn’t make resolutions, I’m glad you’re perfect and don’t need to change!
Last year my New Year’s Resolution was to drink more water. Looking back, that was an achievable resolution but really lame. That resolution is equivalent to someone giving up bananas for Lent. Like good for you and I’m sure you can do it, but the rest of us are giving up chocolate and wine over here so don’t feel too high and mighty about your lame bananas.
This year I’m getting way cooler and cuter about my resolutions.
The first resolution is inspired by Mother T:
I want to be a positive force in 2016. It’s easy to be kind to strangers or friends, but sometimes I have a short fuse with my loved ones. I want to get better at that...and I think living under Mother Teresa’s lil quote for 2016 will be a positive reminder throughout the year.
The second resolution is inspired by some quote I screenshotted off of Instagram and buried into the oblivion that is my iPhone camera roll:
In about a month, I’ll be moving to a new city and pursuing passions that most rational people would certainly advise me against. That’s okay, because it’s my life and I just so happen to be an irrational lunatic! This year, I’m going to be fearless about chasing my dreams and this cheesy lil quote sums up that mentality pretty nicely.
I hope you all aren’t too cool to make resolutions for yourselves because honestly the world is seeming pretty scary lately and it would be dope if a bunch of us tried to be better than we were yesterday.
Also, look! I semi-conquered my crippling fear of heights by ziplining on New Year’s Day! It actually wasn’t that high of a zipline but whatever, the year of fearlessness began on the right foot. Plus that harness was really on-trend:
Here’s to a great year!
