Goals for the New Year

oh, just a sparkly dress phone pic!

Ugh, I know, another New Year post, right?  

Shut up and deal with it!!!!!!!  

Personally, I find it really helpful to take a second to evaluate my life.  Sometimes I just feel like I'm drowning and if I don't stop and look around once in a while (thank you, Ferris Bueller) then I go nuts.  

I'm not making resolutions, per se, I'm just figuring out some general goals.  What are things I wish I had done differently in the past year that I'd like to adjust in the new one?  Yeah!  Not resolutions... re-adjustments.

1. Let shit go.  I've never realized how bad I can hold a grudge or maintain negative feelings.  People do shitty things and some people are just plain unlikeable... but there's no use harboring resentment towards them or wasting time disliking them.  Especially talking shit about them.  I've wasted so much time this year complaining about people and why they do what they do - when in reality, I can't change them.  I don't have to bother with them.  I can unfollow them, defriend them, not spend time with them... whatever I have to do to let it the fuck go

2. Relax.  It's time to stop getting mad when things don't go my way.  It's time to stop setting expectations too high and I'll stop being disappointed when they're not met.  It's time to roll with the punches and go with the flow.  It's time to live in the moment and not wonder where better moments are.  But they're out there, right?  Somewhere there are better moments happening!! 

3. Take care of my anxiety.  I really, really, really need to get on top of this.  Some tasks seem downright IMPOSSIBLE (even just like, hanging out with someone I haven't seen in a while - what on Earth are we going to talk about?).  It's all because of my anxiety.  I need to get it under control.  Whether it's more therapy and medication, I need to take care of it.  Less panic attacks in 2014 sounds pretty great.  

4. Make better decisions.  Cause girl, it's time.
