This is the year that I’ve decided to do more of what scares me. To say yes to the unknown and making it understood that no is a complete sentence. I want to obliterate comfort zones and take on more challenges. I want to kick in the door on 2019 with steel toed boots and the confidence of the patron saint Beyoncé. To quote The Carters, “I can do anything…I’m so nice…”
I started this year with a list of goals declaring what I will accomplish and I’ve even started a gratitude journal. It’s imperative that I retrain my mind to do more positive thinking in order to put forth more positive actions. For the first time in a long time, I’ve got a planner and I’m actively mapping out blogging and social media posts in efforts to stay consistent. Consistency is my word for 2019 and a thing that scares me.
Sometimes I stop or I don’t blog because I feel like I don’t have anything to say. It has been my experience in blogging that words are pointless to most people. If they can’t seen fashion or style posts, there’s little interest; but, I have to remind myself that I do this for people who need to see someone like them making the best of their situations and turning things around. There are more people out there who just want motivation along their self improvement journeys—I wouldn’t know that if I wasn’t one of those people.
I can live life comfortably in my duality. I can be big on true self care and mental health, but still enjoy styling and shopping on a budget. We’re more than one thing, so we have to stop only assuming that people who are known for one thing can’t be into many others. When we break out of these preconceived notions, then we can truly develop ourselves. Hence, my need to embrace the unknown with a vengeance this year.
I’m not saying that I plan on rushing into things on a whim, but I definitely plan to stop talking about it and start being about it. I’ve been talking about going to yoga classes, but the thought of going alone has always been my biggest roadblock. I’m getting over that shit this year. I’m getting out and getting everything thing I want this year. Point blank, PERIODT.
Who’s gonna stop me? Not a damn body. I’m in charge of me, not my fears or insecurities. I can do anything, yeah…I’m so nice…
