2016 is finally here and like many people, I always tend to have high hopes for a new year. I know that if you want to make a change, you can just start anytime you feel like it, but the start of a new year helps to give you a little extra push. I admit that 2015 wasn’t the worst year ever. I experienced some great things that I am very thankful for, especially all the travelling I was able to do. I swam with dolphins, I ziplined over Hawaiian waterfalls, and I lived in the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Unfortunately, every year also brings new problems and setbacks that I had and still have to deal with. I lost my drive, my motivation, my personal plans and vision for my future. It’s a little hard to explain because I don’t really understand it, myself. All I know is that I will work on everything in 2016 and hopefully find my way in life. I want to be healthier again, which so far isn’t working really well, considering the fact that I’m eating chocolate brownies, but Friday is just not a good day to start. Let’s start Monday. I want to try to motivate myself more to actually leave my bed and house, since I pretty much went into hiding for the last two months. And most importantly, I want to find a real job. Just thinking about it scares the hell out of me but there is no way around it. It sucks to be a grown-up.
I’m someone who get’s bored pretty quickly and finding something that ideally, I want to do for the rest of my life, gives me headaches. I can’t do a normal 24/7 job because it would drive me insane. I do have a couple of ideas of what I want to do this year and with my life in general, I just have to get started. Only I have the power to make 2016 the best year of my life and I have to remind myself of this, everyday. Nothing will be handed to me on a silver platter, nobody will drag me out of bed and nobody can fulfill my dreams for me.
No matter what situation you are in, you have to learn to motivate ourselves. Nobody can live our lives for us. I definitely know that it’s not easy and it will probably take a while, but don’t ever give up before even trying. Make a list with things you love and want to do. Write a letter to yourself wich tells you how incredibly awesome you are. Don’t drown in sorrows and if you have a bad day, cry, scream, or eat junk food and then get back on track. Surround yourself with positive people who support and understand you and let go of toxic relationships. Nobody should tell you what to do but yourself. Try to make every moment of 2016 count and always live your life exactly the way you want to. Set some goals, get yourself organized and just start to live. And no matter what you do, don’t ever let the haters get to you.
I want to live my dreams. I want to dance. I want to be happy. Iwant to smile. I want to be open for new things. I want to date. I want to dance in the rain. I want to stop overthinking everything. I want to be happy with myself. I want to write. I want to create new memories with my wonderful friends. I want to be healthy and lose weight. I want to party. I want to live in a city. I want to travel as much as possible. I want to be me. I want to be positive. I want to celebrate myself. I want to reach my goals. I want to challenge myself.
I hope that this new year will be fabulous for all of us and that we all reach our goals.
Be harder. Be better. Be faster. Be stronger. And always be your own superhero.
