And when it comes to a new year, we can all relate to wanting to wash the slate clean, right?
I mean, resolutions are like assholes, everyone has one.
Like, how often have you heard: NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!!!!
It’s kinda true though: year after year, we all want to do better. Be a better friend, work harder, sweat more, eat less, blah, blah, blah.
( Side note: I would love to find out how many actually follow through with their resolutions— more here ).
So anyway my 2014 resolution? I’m living in the now.
I’m sick of hearing: “the best is yet to come.”
For me, the best is today.
Because why wouldn’t I make the best of today?
I’m not going to rely on ‘the best coming.’
And taking that a step further: I’m not looking in the rear view mirror.
I’m living in the now.
No making excuses for today’s behavior because of the past.
“I was bullied in high school so it’s hard to be in social settings.”
“When I was 24 I went through the worst breakup ever so I don’t want to ever date again.”
“My upbringing was way too tough so I don’t ever want a family of my own.”
I can’t deal.
ESP when people do this over & over…so I’m holding myself accountable to make sure that I’m not using the past to justify the now.
I guess what I’m saying is that if negative things have happened in the past, look forward, not backward.
What’s your 2014 resolution? Are you over hearing every single person in the world’s resolution? I’m guessing yes?
Either way: happy Friday!
