Well, to say the least, I’ve decided to go full force into 2018 with setting and keeping some serious intentions. Last year (actually the last 5-ish years) have been a real doozy. Lots (and lots and lots) of ups and downs which have amounted to a great feeling of being lost, unmotivated, sometimes depressed, sometimes a huge lacking of self confidence and so forth. I’m sure I’ve mentioned all of that before. I really didn’t want this blog to just be a “vent” blog. Anyways, I’m extremely tired of living that way. I’m not sure, well actually I know, that all my days aren’t going to be up days like today while I write this, but if I can just manage to keep getting through the tough days or the not-so-great days, then the important thing is that I keep going – as long as I keep going.
The other day, I read this quote “The first step in crafting a life you want is to get rid of everything you don’t.” — Joshua Becker, Becoming Minimalist
Great motto. I also tend to take things very literal. I’m a serious person, which is weird because my favorite thing is to laugh, make jokes, and not be serious. I’m definitely still trying to find a balance between who I am and who I wish I were and making those align, which includes learning how to lighten up.
