It’s the first day of the New Year and I can already tell you’re pumped and ready to go (Just kidding, suffering with a hangover and popping Panadol like it’s candy, right?)! I had a quiet night last night, so I had quite a bit of time to do some thinking. I’m sure you’re all dying to know what thoughts entered my deliriously tired brain last night (early morning), so I won’t keep you waiting longer…
- 2018 is the first year I have started in a positive mindframe (A+);
- 2018 is the year I am not having resolutions; and
- Gee, my dog looks cute in his Christmas elf neckband!
In fact, 2018 is going to be a year of firsts for me. 2017 was the year of mental health, improving it, changing it, and developing it into something productive. 2018 will hopefully be the year I change how I see things and of compromising with myself. My pinup family will tell you I always try to avoid photos, for example. I will literally hide behind things, or pretend to not see them, or even slowly walk further and further away from them to avoid being in them. Not that this works, mind you, I’m usually forcibly dragged kicking and screaming back into them. So instead of avoiding them completely, I’m going to compromise with myself. Be in a few, take a few, avoid a few. Don’t distance myself from the people who love me because I’m worried how I’m going to be perceived. I won’t give any more examples, but I think you get the idea.
Instead of avoiding things that scare me, I want to take part in them. This is something I started a few months ago, and it has improved my confidence and skills, and I think it is something I will enjoy doing going forward.
So, Darlings, what’re you expecting to do in 2018? What are your resolutions? What are your not-resolutions? What are the things you want to improve upon?
Let me know!
ps. I’m also planning on buying a lot more skirts, dresses and accessories, but shh! Don’t tell my Rockstar!
