I’m not sure if you’ve picked up on this yet, but, I’m a fan of the New Year.
I’m just into it.
I love resolutions and I don’t care if I end up breaking them.
Likely because I’d rather make a goal and work towards it for a little while then to never make a goal at all.
With that being said, it’s ideal if I can stick to it.
I’m a sucker for some personal growth, what can I say?
So, this particular year I’ve decided to work on a different area of my life each month.
I heard once that it takes 30 days to build a habit. So, maybe if I focus on 12 different things for close to 30 days I’ll build 12 solid life habits?
Worth a try.
For the month of January I’ve chosen to focus on being fearless. Particularly in relationships.
To not censor myself for the comfort of others.
To frankly not take any shit.
To allow myself to be fully myself at all times.
In that regard I’ve also decided to not wear mascara all month.
It’s always been a thing for me.
I’ve never quite felt great or attractive without mascara.
It’s time for that to end.
I also have decided to not go on any dates.
To define what I want in relationships and what I need right now before I enter down that path.
But ultimately, I will ask myself in any given moment that if I wasn’t afraid, what would I do differently?
I’ve laid out a rough guess on what the rest of the year will focus on.
It will likely change as I realize what the coming month needs to look like. But, here is what I’ve estimated at this point.
April: Creative Expresssion
June: Healthy Eating
July: Volunteer Work/Charity
September: Try New Things
October: Travel Alone
December: Reflection & Gratitude
