I am 20 years old!! I said to my grandpa, “I feel like this is the first time in my life when my mental maturity matches up with my physical age.” I am so fucking #blessed to have supportive, funny, and genuine family, friends, and the communities around me. I have a great feeling about this coming year and 2016 in general. I don’t know what is coming my way, but I just know that it is going to be good.
I don’t believe in “resolutions” because I think that word sets people up to fail and it is too much pressure. I like to think of mottos and ways that I want to feel in this coming year, and work towards that instead of set ideals. I started this new system last year. For 2015, my word was “effortless” and I also wanted to build up a high-quality jewelry collection. At the end of December, I realized I had actually done both of those things without even thinking about it too hard, and I was so proud of myself! Although I don’t quite yet have a word for 2016 (I think it is “full”), I do have my list of how I want to feel posted above my desk in my room.
Here is how I want to feel in 2016:
- Not bloated
