I am happy. Happy for my friends who are artists, musicians, in school, whatever they do. If you did me wrong, I am happy for you too. If we have ever disagreed on anything political, I am happy for you. 2016 taught me that being petty gets you nowhere, if you can’t get over it or it’s hurting you, talk to someone. There’s a world of people out there who are or have been in your shoes. Throughout our lifetime it’s normal for us to lose friends, we all grow up and sometimes that leads to growing apart, whether it be due to lack of communication, disagreements, or whatever. It’s okay to cut negative people out of your life, you don’t have to feel bad about it. Life is truly too short to be unhappy, to hold grudges, and be petty. Be happy for people, whatever they have done to you. Furthermore be proud of your friends. They work hard and need to be appreciated. All it takes is a text or comment to make someone’s day, spread the love.
I know that I have written a lot about this and that I preach it entirely too often, but do what makes you happy. Stop doing things for other people that don’t deserve it. If you aren’t happy, change something. Any type of change is good as it can provide a new perspective and sometimes that’s all you need. If you want to do something, do it. Don’t wait for the opportunity to come, you are the maker and can accomplish anything you want to. I hope you all make 2017 the year that you start on the path to your dreams and find yourselves.
Looking forward, this year I have some pretty big dreams. Already, I have started the path to accomplish them. This year, I will become fluent in Italian, complete a half marathon, travel to 21 countries, invest in myself, continue on the path to enlightenment, write a book, find my niche, and simply live. I try not to put too much of my life open to others, but I think it’s important to inspire others through the life you live. It’s not about showing off or making people jealous, it’s about showing others how to accomplish their dreams, inspiring others to live the life they want to live, and most importantly, being happy. These reasons alone are why I have chosen to rebrand myself, my blog, and all of my social channels. So with all of this I hope you all choose to follow along with me on this new journey.
