Hi guys I hope you are all well, so I have been on holidays and I’ve been trying to make the most of it and by that I mean binge watching my favourite tv shows (low-key tho). I know I have been more active on my Instagram (@duskavenue) follow me for more of my lifeeee.
Anyways I was thinking because it’s so close to 2018 I wanted to do a post about new year resolutions. I know new year resolutions is something everyone posts on their social media to show they have some but by end of jan to feb nothing has happened. You know how I know this? because I have done this before.
Back when I was in college I was always thought “ok this is my new years resolution and I have to go through with it!” but honestly the truth is just because it’s a new year you don’t have to have new year resolutions. We learn so much in a day let alone a whole year.
For me 2017 has been one of the most challenging and rewarding years ever, I had some of the best opportunities and some of the worst turn downs, I had breakdowns and I had moments I was laughing so much my tummy would hurt. I travelled and I learnt more about myself, I had some of the most eye opening things happen to me and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I don’t want to call them “New year resolutions” because we all know we would be setting up to disappoint so instead just to yourself, think about 2017, what it taught you, the sadness and the happiness. Now what have you learnt this year that can help you for 2018?
Write them down but keep them to yourself. Yes it might seem like a new year resolution but the difference is, you know you can do it (ongoing tho) without having to share it.
What ever you have learnt this year implement it for next year, you know what they say, every day is a new day, so when is the last time you did something for the first time?
I often think about that, because we get caught up and we forget about what is truly important. So fuck the “Resolutions” because there aren’t problems that we need solutions for, what is your goals for 2018? no matter how big or small.
Something to think about on the last days of 2017…
