With all of these resolutions and goals flying around the blogosphere lately, I'm sure change has been on your mind as much as mine. 2013 is so promising, a brand new year, a clean slate. There's just something about it that makes me hopeful. And anytime I get a spare moment to let my mind wander, I start thinking about how I want this new year to be different than any other year. How I want it to really be the BEST year yet, like I said in my last post.
So I got to thinking...what do I need to change to make that happen? How do I want to make this year different? Change is a tough thing, but a good thing. In order for this year to be different than any before, SOMETHING(s) have to CHANGE!
With that being said, I want to know what YOU would change. Is there something you want to change about yourself? About your life? Something serious? Something trivial? Job wise? Body wise? Personality wise? Maybe something about a relationship you are in? What would make this year the best year ever for you?
Post it as yourself, post it as anonymous if you want to, just post it. Heck, even if you don't usually comment, do it this once. Let's put our changes out there, so we can really KNOW what we want to be different by the time 2014 rolls around. Maybe this time next year, we can all look back
on this and see if we actually accomplished it. And who knows, maybe in the process, we'll find encouragement from others to really make things happen in our own lives.
So, you want to know what I'd change about myself? I want to be less hard on myself. I'm my own worst enemy--I have no self confidence. I spent so many years hiding behind the "fat girl" facade, trying not to stand out, and my ego has remained the same. I want to accept me for ME and stop comparing myself to others. I'll never be as thin as some, I'll never be as popular as others. This blog will never have 10,000 followers. I'll never work out as much as some. The list goes on and on. But that's okay. I'm me, and I want to really learn to love myself this year. For better or for worse :)
So, spill the beans. What would YOU change? What differences in YOU or in your LIFE would make 2013 the greatest year yet?
