While last year did not exactly go according to plan. whose year ever goes that way? (DO NOT answer if you are the exception!)
I also found myself in interesting fun and exciting situations and moments I absolutely cherished.
like bailing out a dear person from jail, partying with the former boss like 16 year olds, consoling someone I thought was heartless through a sudden divorce , finding the perfect Halloween outfit last minute, crushing friendship goals with my people, fiercely standing up for those I love and letting them know I will always be on their side, taking on most of the perfect brunch experiences I had wanted n blah blah blah
Fast forward to new years eve. It hit me that I would not be have been having the perfect new years I had looked forward to. my 24 year old heart desperately wanted to ring it in with my friends .watching fireworks by the beach and kissing someone better than the DJ from last year at midnight. instead I found myself stressed out by some not so serious obligations to friends and family. by 8pm my ass was in bed and the next thing I knew it was 4am and I had plenty of missed calls, happy new years messages and regrets.
well as a person that strongly believes in symbolism and 2nd chances, I’m glad February is bringing me the gift of Chinese new years
Here’s a list of 8 things I am doing to take back my 2018:
1.making out with some other human being on Chinese new years to restart the year like I originally wish I had
2. celebrating each and every other little milestone or event that is meaningful to me
yes that includes Halloween
3. dance more. like a lot more
4.Run more, drink less,meditate
5. drop commitments that no longer serve me or recognize my worth
6.Embrace and commit to more squad goals, dates or friendship milestones and stop skipping girls night like a lame ass mofo
7.not get married!
( despite the weekly annoying pushy conversations on this that has me partly hiding from my mom and some nosy colleagues who are convinced they will bring me my soulmate. or a fun blind date)
8. Take on a new project
