It’s officially New Year’s Eve!! The time of the year where we reflect on the year behind us and look forward to the year before us. When I look back on 2016 I don’t like everything that I see. I lost myself in 2016 and in 2017 I would like to find myself again. During the year I found myself getting discouraged about school, trying to take care of everyone else, and not taking care of my health. I let my grades drop and allowed my weight to rise. I had more anxiety this year than I ever have had. I lost the love of my life, my dog, Justin.
Of course there were good things I went on vacation with the most unique extended family ever. I went with my boyfriend for his first ever vacation! I got a new car and got a new dog, Barrett. I attempted to make more meaningful friendships, but found myself stressing about pleasing everyone. I tried many new things and found new things that I would like to try.
In 2017 I would like to get back to knowing me and loving me. Yes that does include wanting to lose weight, and continue the mantra “new year, new me”, but I do truly feel like I lost myself 2016. I want to read more, explore new things, and find out who I am again. Basically, I’m going to be selfish. I still plan on loving my family, my dog, and my boyfriend, and will try to give them what they need at a reasonable expense to myself. In 2017 I would like to be unequivocally happy in everything that I do. What are some of your resolutions for the new year? Until next time,
