New Year, New Me

Happy 2016! A couple of nights ago, when I started thinking of ideas for my first post of 2016, I was having some trouble coming up with new ideas. However, it wasn't because I don't have anything to say, it was because I have so much to say.

2015 was a much needed year for me. During that time I was really able to discover a little more about who I am and where I want to be headed. So many things happened in such a short amount of time, I feel like it went by in the blink of an eye. The main thing in 2015 for me was starting high school. I spent a lot of time getting used to things and just trying to figure things out. That was very consuming and not in a great way. That is why I hope 2016 is a little different.

In 2016 I really want to get back in touch with reality and be my true self again. I don't want to let the little things people know me for define me. I want to have real fun, go out and try so many new things and stop worrying about things that aren't important and focus more on the ones that are. I've made countless lists of things I will do to ensure having an exciting and wholesome year and I am so ready to begin fresh. One night, in December I started thinking about what 2016 would be like and the word that kept popping into my mind was 'optimistic', because, I am truly optimistic for the year to come. I can't wait to get back to my adventurous roots and embark on the journey that is 2016.

So, what do I resolve to do this year? Accept more challenges, go new places, embrace old and new friendships, learn new skills, be completely present, eat more wholesome and sustaining foods for good health, enjoy the company of others, be kind and generous, get things done on time, put more work into academics, be more open, drink water, practice quality over quantity, achieve and set more goals and approach the new year with a strive for "better-ness".
