Right now you’re in a little bit of a rut. You’re doing the same things, watching the same shows, listening to the same songs, etc. It’s time to change it up. It’s time to get out there. You just moved back in with your parents, and while it sounds discouraging on the surface, this is a big opportunity to do some of the things you’ve wanted to do but haven’t had the time (or the money).
You’ve been giving a lot of yourself to others lately and I urge you to stop that this year. Say no when you want to say no. Be unapologetically who you want to be and not who others expect you to be. Take leaps of faith and do something you wouldn’t normally. Say what you want to say when you want to say it, and take a back seat to no body.
The past 4 years have held a lot of hurt and you have been holding on to it (even though you well people you’re over it). You’ve lost pets, friends, and family members. You’ve lied and been lied to. In the midst of everything, remember to be kind to everyone. Everyone fights a battle, keep this in mind. It’s time to let go of the past and FORGET IT.
Keep in mind that the only direction to go is forward. Do something spontaneous. Make a new friend or reconnect with an old one. Take these next few months before Matthew goes to college and build your relationship because lord knows he’s going to go off to college and probably never look back.
Turn this seemingly bad change into an undeniably awesome one. Take the guards and the cages off your heart and open yourself up to new possibilities, new adventures, new friendships, new loves.
a very optimistic version of yourself
