Feels somewhat weird – I haven’t written in awhile because I’ve been in this odd, uncomfortable writers block / funk… Personally, I cannot just sit down at a desk and say “Okay Amanda, what are we going to write today..” and then BOOM – my fingertips type away. I have to be in this certain mental state to write how I feel or express my feelings in words that make sense to others, but especially myself.
Luckily, I have a great excuse as to why I haven’t written; holidays, new years, being around family, seeing old friends, traveling state to state, loving all over my dog Rue, and a few other things (loving all over Rue is the best excuse of them all though).
First and foremost, I am going to love the hell out of 2016.
I believe that you don’t necessarily need that jump from December 31st to January 1st to make those new year resolutions, but you know what – to those individuals who have been waking up everyday, committed to changing bad habits, or just testing themselves to see if they can do it – way to go. If January 1st is the day for you to realize that you need to make some big changes, then have at it – full throttle baby. To those of you who have some negative connotations, keep it coming. Successful people don’t always have everyone of their side, but successful people know how to handle those naysayers.
Just remember – happiness isn’t a destination, its a realization that things couldn’t get any better than having the freedom to perceive as you please and to think as you choose.
Live life beautifully and embody the person you are – but ultimately the person you are becoming.
