In case you couldn’t tell by all of those “new year, new me” posts you saw on Instagram, it is now 2018. This time of year, everyone always makes resolutions and looks to “restart” their life, typically for the better. Although some people don’t like this period of time, I actually believe resolutions do work and setting goals at the new year can really change your life. So me being the basic white girl that I am, I decided to put a list together of goals I have for 2018. I am not the type of person to believe in plans because to be honest, every time I try to make plans, things get messed up. Instead of getting upset when things change, I’ve been really trying to go with the flow because I know in the end, things will happen and everything will be worked out. This year has been a really really really big year for me.
I graduated from college, I turned 21, I started a full-time job, I moved out on my own, I started dating my fab boyfriend, I traveled a lot, I made new friends, lost some old ones but ultimately, I changed.
Right before I started my senior year of college in 2016, I decided to put myself first and I wanted to live my life the way I wanted to. I had spent about two years trying to please everyone around me and I felt like I was never supported for who I wanted to be or what I wanted to do. I headed into 2017 with that same mentality and I plan to continue that as we move into 2018. Surprisingly, I’ve found that when you have the right people around you, the support will be natural. I am a very independent person and I rarely depend or rely on people but sometimes it is nice to know someone is in your corner. In my case, I have a lot of people in my corner and that feels great.
My hope for 2018 is that I grow and change even more. I hope to travel, go out of my comfort zone and enjoy every moment I share with everyone in my life. I wanted to share a few of my goals for 2018 with everyone, mainly just to keep myself accountable (we all know how new year resolutions go lol).
