To ring in 2013 like a champ, I want to start by recognizing that 2012 has been THE best year of my life. I'm 25 now, and I plan to have a couple of years ahead to top this one, but I couldn't have asked for anything better than what 2012 brought to the table. In order to move in a more positive direction, you have to acknowledge the things that make your life better. I haven't always been that person - I'm a cynic at heart - but, I noticed that when I started letting go of that cynicism as much as I could and started enjoying the things I wanted to do and the people I wanted to spend time with, things just started looking and feeling a lot better. When you're not constantly apologizing for your whole life, you actually enjoy it. PMA all day. That's my new way of life.
I suppose there are a few things that I want to accomplish in 2013.
- I'd like to start by maintaining the positivity that I've finally managed to exercise. I'd like to increase it, if possible. I guess that really goes hand-in-hand with self-discovery. I know, that's trite, but I have my reasons for being so cliche.
- I'd like to engage in more creative endeavors, like redesigning my apartment, actually starting to make the clothes I've been planning on making for two years, taking some acting classes, shit.. I might even start a band. I know, that last one is aggressive.
- I'd like to move to the West Coast this year. If only for a year or two. I will unabashedly own my love for Los Angeles.
- I'd like to spend more time educating myself. A lot more time. I spend enough time engaging my vices, so I'd like to counter that with a little more knowledge and little less wasted youth.
Here's to positive life changes in 2013! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!! :)
