New Years Resolution?

I’m doing it a little different this year. Instead of telling myself to workout 5 times a week or eat healthier (because let’s be real, haha), I made a goal to follow my instincts and believe in myself more. Maybe this will be the year I accomplish my goals and grow to be the person I want to be. Just maybe.

My whole life I have thought of myself as an independent person, but more and more I have been relying on and looking for approval from others before I do something. I second guess myself and feel the need to have other people behind me supporting me. And when I think about it, I think the reason for this is that I fear messing up and having no one there to catch me. But really, what do I have to lose if I mess up? Because of this fear, though, I have limited myself from doing what I really want.

This year I want to have more faith in myself. I still want to have support from others, and I know I will have certain people in my life that will always be there to catch me if I fall, but it starts with me. It’s time for me to take what I want and get it and its time to make progress.

 

. To reach my goal, I set myself three guidelines:

  1. Be honest with myself- Know what I want and be straightforward
  2. Be forgiving of myself- Accept failure and always keep pushing forward
  3. Be bold- let it be known what I want and do what it takes to get there.

So let’s see what happens. Maybe I will surprise myself.

What about you? What changes would you like to see this year?

 

P.S. I’m back! I forgot about this blog for awhile, but I would like to keep up with it again!

Role Models

Who do you most admire? A teacher, a friend, a boss, a celebrity, a parent? Whoever it may be I think it is very important that we all have a role model. Role models provide us with inspiration and motivation. They also guide us through life and help us find happiness.

By having the role models I have in my life I am constantly striving to improve who I am as a person. I want to be a person with morals, honor, and integrity. I want to create a life for myself where I don’t have to wake up everyday and drag my feet across the floor to get ready. The role models in my life have really helped shape the person I am proud to be today.

If I had to chose my role model, I would pick two people: My mom and one of my teachers (BL). These two people have made such an outstanding impact on my life and I couldn’t thank them enough. They have been by my side through thick and thin and always show me the light at the end of the tunnel.

My mom. She has been my teacher, counselor, role model, and friend for my whole life. My mom has taught me to always jump in with both feet and give it your all. My mom always tells me that its not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain. So mom, THANK you!! I love you with all my heart.

And now to the woman who has made school a place I want to be. You have shown me that hard work pays off and no matter what the situation is, I will get through it. Honestly, I don’t know how you deal with me on a daily basis with all the “problems” I come to you about. But thank you!! I most definitely would have gone crazy by now without you.

And of course, I would like to thank everyone else in my life who supports me and loves me unconditionally. I am so glad to have everyone be apart of this crazy journey I call life. I really hope everyone realizes how important they are to me.

Thanks for reading everyone!!

Now, in the comments tell me who your role model is and why!
