2014 Going On 2015

Hello, lovely.

I’m not ready for the new year. This one has gone by way too fast. So I think I’ll live in denial for a while and just take life a day at a time.

When I think about a whole year that I have to get through, it’s overwhelming. But when I focus on just a day at a time, it’s easier to think about. Is that the same for you?

I don’t set New Year’s Resolutions. Why make them if you know you won’t keep them? They’ll just bring you down in the end. Instead, I propose that we set a few goals – not “I’ll lose this much weight” or “I’ll exercise this much a week” but set some meaningful goals.

I will say something kind to a stranger.

I will try a new food once a month.

I will love myself.

Whatever. Just make it meaningful to you, because if it doesn’t mean enough, you won’t keep that resolution. Personalize it. Make a plan to follow through. And just take it a little bit at a time.

Here’s my list:

  • I will work harder at speech and debate.
  • I will be more proud of myself for the effort I put in than the outcome.
  • I will finish editing The Reset.
  • I will read the Bible more.
  • I will pray more.
  • I will create more art.

It’s not a lot, but it’s doable.

And I won’t think about that right now. I’m going to eat chocolate cake with tinted cream cheese frosting to cope with this new year.

And in this new year, I hope you overcome your struggles. I hope you strive for your goals. I hope you succeed – and when you fail, I hope you learn why and use that information to make yourself a better person.

Now, a certain cousin and little sister of mine are about to eat my cake. Excuse me and make this year the best year ever.
