HAPPY NEW YEAR BABES!
2015, huh, how time flies, God…
Don’t worry, I’m not here to quote you things like “New year, new me” and all that other blabla people throw at you at every beginning of a new year.
In fact, I’m here to motivate you (and myself kind of) for 2015!
2014 actually wasn’t my year, it was filled with a lot of mixed feelings and most of the time not the most positive ones, and I guess that’s why I’m now pretty excited for this new year. I learned from my mistakes though, as well as I learned from others’ mistakes, I got a clearer view of certain people, I grew (“in wisdom” lol) etc. …
But most importantly : I learned to accept myself, I gained some self-confidence! I feel happy about the way I look and about how I’m…build. Now please don’t take this in an arrogant way, because I’m still far away from that (I don’t even want to get to that point actually!); I’m not saying that I would now feel comfortable being in underwear in front of anyone or whatever you might be thinking, but I simply feel comfortable being in underwear “in front of myself”. I think it’s important that everyone feels this way! Everyone should be able to look at their body and smile or at least be satisfied with it! We all tend to believe what others tell us; when someone says “you’re fat”, we feel fat, when we get told that ‘we’re too thin’, we feel too thin, and so on… But fact is : screw them, screw others’ opinions. Who said that they’re right? Who said their definition of “fat” and “thin” is right? Who said that “fat” and “too thin” and whatever is bad? This all sounds like some Hannah Montana/Selena Gomez song, but you get the idea…
It’s your body, so it’s your task to decide if it’s good or not… Just please stay on the healthy road!
BACK TO THE ACTUAL SUBJECT hah
So yes, I gained some self-confidence, I now also feel much more comfortable wearing things I really like and I’ve stopped thinking about what others might think of what I’m wearing. I like it, I wear it. And guess what?! I feel much better like this.
I don’t need to please everyone, I can’t even stand most of the people who see me on a daily basis, so why even bother?! The only person I want to please right now is myself. I personally admire those who live just for themselves, who don’t try to please anyone, who do their own thing and it’s kind of my “aim” to have someone seeing me that way. One could even describe this as a form of independency.
As you can see, 2014 might not have been one of my best years, but I still learned a lot from it! And I want to make good use of all the things I learned and gained in 2014 this year, in order to have an excellent 2015.
Now, I’m not really a resolutions person, but I set myself some goals for this year and even already have things I’m looking forward to do this year.
– get a
freaking summer job!!! (now this has been my “goal” since like 2013 lol but this time it’s for real! I’m at least gonna try!)
– get my driving licence! (becoming 18 soon, sooo…)
– pass my year! (school ofc)
– be more positive, do more of what makes me happy and ignore what doesn’t
Things I’m looking forward to :
– Ed Sheeran concert *shriek of excitement*
– travelling (don’t know when or where or if the things I have in mind will work out, but I’ll surely at least go to one place)
And that’s it for the goals and things I’m looking forward to for the moment. Having these just excites me more for this year and kind of reassures me. I’m not simply entering a year with no plan at all, or just letting myself go. I actually have things I want to do and achieve and I know that there will be amazing things I’ll be experiencing and all that just makes life much more interesting for me!
I can just recommend you to do the same! Make a list of things you would like to do (this year or even in the far future), write down things you are going to do which you can’t wait for, make a list of things you know you should do (find a job?! get better grades?! …), etc. … You will notice that having it in front of you, being able to read it, will just excite you more and even motivate you! Wanna meet your actual idol(s)?! Well write it down and maybe one day, in a few years, you will be able to actually meet them and you can cross that thing out of your list!
You aren’t meant to get everything you desire done in just one year, you got your entire lifetime in front of you, so don’t feel disappointed if you aren’t able to get something done, because of ‘financial problems’ or because your parents won’t let you!
You want something?! Work for it, do your best to get it and be patient (I know this last point can be really hard but…).
(just to clarify : I still had some pretty good moments in 2014! Really loved the summer I had with my baby gurl Tatiana, for example + all the pictures were taken from tumblr)
And that’s it. What are your plans for 2015? Are you excited for it?
