A New Beginning

 

"...Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."

Every new year, we're likely to make a resolution that we pressure ourselves to follow, but end up losing the drive a few months in. I'm not big on resolutions. I just take the time to reflect on the previous year and decide what kind of personal changes I need to make. I was fortunate enough to have the Universe change make those changes for me. In 2014 I felt like I didn't know who I was or where I wanted to be in life. I'm naturally very hard on myself, so I would put so much pressure on achieving personal goals that I've set for myself. I started to realize, though, that my standards are extremely high (and in a lot of ways unrealistic). I expect myself to be the best at everything I do. To be perfect and not leave any room for error. Clearly unrealistic. The mistakes I've made lead me to where I am now. And the expectations I have for myself are far more impressive than the average person. I'm sitting here thinking what I'm doing isn't good enough, when what I'm doing is much better than I realize. I was blind to my own greatness. I couldn't see how amazing I already was because I was so stuck on being better.

This past year brought a lot of lessons to me in matters of friendships, family, love... The friends I've recently made have done so much for my spirit. You should always keep positive people around you; people who motivate and encourage you. They say the people you bring the new year in with are the ones that'll play a significant role in the upcoming year. I spent my New Year's Eve with two amazing young ladies who inspire me on so many levels. We danced, we drank, we did things you only see happening in movies. That night we were girls having fun. That night was EPIC. It set the tone for the rest of 2015. This year is going to be the bet yet. I'm going to continue making memories and creating epic nights. I will fall madly in love with myself and challenge anyone else to come in second. I will take risks, be spontaneous, do thins a type A personality like myself would never do. I don't care how cliche it sounds..but this is MY year!
