2019 Intentions and Resolutions
Happy 2019! I cannot believe this year is here. 2018 seriously zoomed by. It was a phenomenal year and truly one for the books, but I kinda knew what to expect (in the way you can kinda predict the things you’re going to do) but, for 2019…I honestly don’t know what’s in store.
I’m excited, but nervous. This past year I really worked on breaking giving myself solid month, year, 5-year plans. Granted, I do think these are important, but I am/was the type of person to where, if it slipped out of my mouth at any point, it was happening and obviously dreams and wants evolve with our growth! That being said I do have some very big things happening this year that are set plans, but I will post about those later. (:
In the past, I have loved choosing a word to be an intention or guidepost throughout the year. I just find that it’s a great internal cheerleader for when times get hard or something to keep me in that positive headspace. 2019’s word is brave.
I’m newly graduated and following my dreams may cause moving mountains. Big scary mountains. I want more than everything to make brave decisions this year that prove that I believe in the knowledge, talents and passion I have for both my industry and my life. In the past, I have been so afraid of failing that I have always made the safe choice, but I know that fortune favors the bold and that’s exactly what I want to be.
I do also have a couple small resolutions this year!
Become physically stronger: I do not now (or ever) want center a goal around weight loss. That’s simply not what this is about. But, lately I have been thinking of the days when I was dancing multiple hours a day and just how strong I was, and the things I was able to do and accomplish with my body and I miss that. I want to get strong again so I can have active involvement in all the activities I want with my strength, or lack there of, not getting in my way.
Not let people tell me when I’m guilty when I’m not: I’m specifically putting this one, because this happened this past year a lot. Everyone’s feelings are valid, but if I honestly do not feel like I hurt someone with any part of myself consciously, I will not feel guilty about it. I have spent too long tearing myself apart for things I have not done (and only for things I have not done).
Not talk about Instagram followers in an obsessive or anxious way: it’s 2019 and a waste of worry.
Here’s a virtual cheers to a fantastic year!
