Every year, ever since I can remember, I’ve always made a new year’s resolution only to be disappointed by December. This upcoming year, I want to take a different approach to this fresh, new slate. Don’t get me wrong. I’m still going to set goals for this upcoming year but not in a way for I have to check things off of a list. Instead, I want to set a theme…
2013 was full of lessons. Man oh man. 2013 was one hell of a year man. I lost a best friend. I struggled in school. I didn’t accomplish all the things I wanted to. But granted, I gained new friends and I learned what a true, honest friend is. I also got my grades up by the end of this year. I’m not going to let my failures from 2013 get me dismayed. Instead, I’m going to use them as motivation to make 2014 even better.
In 2013, I felt restless. I felt like I wasn’t doing anything significant with my life. I lost 30 pounds. That was the highlight of my year but I want to do more… I want to travel. I want to meet new people. I want to explore and learn. I want to accomplish new things, make bigger moves. Restless… That’s what I felt like this year.
In 2014, I want to grow in every aspect of my life. I want to move forward and stop feeling like I’m not going anywhere. I’m tired of feeling stagnant. If I was to die tomorrow, it would be a sad death because I didn’t accomplish all that I wanted to accomplish. I didn’t get to live my life to the absolute fullest.
In 2014, my theme is progression. I’m keeping that in mind instead of a laundry list of things I want to accomplish. Everything I want to accomplish stems from progression. It all ties together. I’m determined to move forward in my life next year. No more feeling restless. No more feeling like I’m stuck or stagnant. I’m doing big things in 2014 and you all can hold me accountable to that.
What theme would you set up for yourself in 2014?
