Happy New Year to all of you around the world!! 2017 is now behind us and 2018 is here. I decided a few weeks ago to declare 2018 “The Year of Great Potential”. A lot of really great things are possible, but, as always, nothing is guaranteed. My attitude going into this year is different from previous years, so that is why I expect different results this year. In 2017, I learned to love myself. In 2018, I will love myself and love life.
There is a lot of uncertainty in my life as I begin 2018, but I will love life regardless this year. It’s what I have decided. Whatever happens in life seems to happen for a reason, so I am just going to embrace and enjoy whatever this year throws at me. I have no expectations, except to be happy and love life. I learned in 2017 to take responsibility for my own happiness. 2018 will not go as planned, I already know that, but I will find happiness in whatever happens.
I’m over setting expectations for myself and trying to live up to them. That just leads to disappointment. For the first time in my life, I love myself and love what I’m all about. I’m going to live my life this year, and know that, whatever happens, I am doing what I am supposed to do in life. I don’t care who does or doesn’t like it. I’m not trying to impress anybody. Whatever I do will be what is best for me and what will eventually lead to my happiness.
I feel truly inspired right now and will probably write a lot in the near future, so I will keep this short.
To all of you around the world, whether you know me or not, I wish you a 2018 that exceeds your greatest expectations. Don’t wait for life to happen. Go out and MAKE life happen!! Don’t wait for someone to make you happy. Take full responsibility for your own happiness. If someone else adds to your happiness, consider yourself lucky, but don’t wait for it to happen. Years fly by too quickly, and life is too short. Make 2018 your best year yet!!
