I’m going to admit that 2015 is going to be a hard year to beat.
I met people who’ve become important to me, figured out what direction I want to head in career wise, and been really happy with how everything fell into place. There was something about this year, I gained more direction and now I’m more confident in the choices I’m making and where I want to end up. 2015 was the first year that as it ended I wasn’t confused, I was content and felt accomplished. That says something!
2016 is going to be my selfish year and before you roll your eyes too much, hear me out. I’m the type of person to let things happen because it’s easy, or because I don’t want to step on toes. Not a pushover, but you get what I mean. I’ve started to realize that being a nice person, while a great thing to be, can hinder you. This is both in the professional world and with your social life. You can’t let people walk all over you if you’re expecting to get somewhere, and I need to get where I want to be.
I want 2016 be the year I take the things I want because I deserve them. Don’t get me wrong, 2015 was a year I figured out what I wanted but 2016 is the year it all happens. And sure this is becoming easier because I have a clear picture of what needs to happen this year for me, I’ll still need to work hard.
This year is going to be a big one for me, and I’m just talking about what I know of! I have my final semester of college, moving out of my hometown, finding an ‘adult’ job (hopefully), figuring out what it’s like to grow up. Sure it’s intimidating, but the excitement is bigger. I think it’s the certainty that makes the excitement bigger, it’s a new feeling for me.
It’s less about a resolution and more about a feeling, and if 2015 felt this amazing I can’t wait to see what 2016 throws at me.
