This post is not about this ah-ma-zing purple outfit I am wearing (I mean, how awesome it this co-ord which I got in sale right before Christmas?! Have been wearing it so much already!). Nope. It is much more about my mood and feelings about 2018. How excited I am about a new year full of new opportunities and challenges. But also about how scary it can be. You want to make it a better year than the past, but is that going to happen?
As you may guessed, next to my excitement, I have a little anxiety about the new year as well. My plans are a lot and my dreams are big, now I have to fight for them. 2017 was a year that I learned a lot about myself. About letting go, accepting feelings and dare to talk. I always felt afraid of what others would think of me, about my opinions. Next to that I thought I could do anything on my own. I wouldn’t ask for help which even caused some trouble. Yes, I learned a lot. Talking to others can really help if you are having struggles and it can be a relieve to cry now and then. So, all I did wrong in 2017 is going to be better in 2018, I guess?
That is a promise I made to myself and can be kinda hard to make it all come reality. I want to grow personally, socially and financially; all things I have to keep up with since last year. Writing this to you guys feels like a little relieve already, because I am sure I am not the only one. The thought that there are many other people who might struggle with the start of a new year as well, where you want to do better than last, reduce the pressure a little bit. I think the best thing for now is to just go with the flow and start. It is okay to not feel pink, but don’t feel blue. Feel purple instead. Do the best you can, love yourself as you love others and make it a good year!
