Goals for 2017

I know this is a bit late, but I honestly really do believe in the fact that making goals is the first step to achieving  something, because it gives you something to strive towards and give you purpose. So without any further ado, here are my goals for 2017.

  • Work on confidence – I would like to work on overall confidence for things such as body confidence, self-confidence, how I carry myself, how I feel about myself, how I feel around others, etc.
  • Get fit – I think this is a great goal opposed to my usual “Loose x amount of weight”, because as mentioned above I really would like to work on confidence, and over the past year I have learnt that if I am healthy my body with take care of itself.
  • Work on Academics – Work hard to achieve self goals in school and out of school
  • Dance – Make an effort to practice especially when I am not in love with the assigned dance
  • Time Management – Don’t waste too much time.
  • Workout – I would like to workout at least three times a week
  • Dressing – Try to put in more of an effort in how I dress, because I have learnt that people really do treat you differently depending on how you dress.
  • Journal – I would like to try to write in my journals at least once a month

Take Control of Your Life

If you feel like you don’t belong, just take a deep breath and talk and/or write it out.

This may just seem like the most tedious thing ever that has absolutely no point what so ever, but I urge you to just listen. I for one have been a people-pleaser my whole life, and I have always tried my best to mold myself to some I might not be for the pleasure of others. I have spent too much time trying to look like someone I don’t want to be, join activities that I’ve wanted to be apart of or even just try to blend in. All of these have one thing in common; These activities made me feel insignificant and put me through torture. I never gained anything from it, and I’m pretty sure that I never will. After bending over backwards trying to make people happy, I just crashed and burned on the inside. I felt like most of the people around me don’t know me and who I am on the inside. And at this point in life, I’m pretty sure that I am not the only one who feels this way.

Now moving on from my mindless and personal babble, here’s what I really wanted to tell you: Do what makes you happy and not what makes others happy. This may seem like a meaningless quote, but it really is a rule to live by. Live your life the way you want to live it. Don’t be bossed around and controlled by the people around you, even if they are your friends, your family, your employer or whoever else you might have in your life. Because in the long run, they will not matter. If you ever feel like you need someone to talk to, just email me at blogafterblog21@gmail.com , it only takes as long as you want it to take, and I can promise you that just the act of venting can and will help.

I truly hope that you can take a minute out of your day and think about life and the control you have over it.
