Good evening my darlings,
Thank you for joining me today!
I have so much going on in my mind that I just felt the need to hop on my blog and let everything out!
Throughout my short life, I have not always been the most organized person. I always wanted to be, but I struggle greatly with having motivation to actually do things. *cough* Thanks defective brain. *cough*
But I really want to try harder to be a “better me.” Super cheesy, trust me I know. But I am determined to start and finish projects, and HOPEFULLY reach some of my freaking goals!
Now with all that said, let’s start off with a lovely, motivationl quote for the new year! Thank you to one of my favorite authors of all times.
– Neil Gaiman
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
I am a major perfectionist, which leads to so many disasters that include literally not following through with ANYTHING that I start. Whether it is trying to open a candle business, finishing a book that I wanted to read, creating a blog and actually writing on it, or even simple things like chatting with friends.
I have major mood swings and this really makes me detach from the world in a very unhealthy manner and it sucks. I can lose interest in a snap of the fingers, even if I was literally just ranting and raving about said thing.
I honestly believe this is because I am so afraid of failing? I hate making mistakes, they haunt me forever. I overthink everything, I look down on myself, I hold grudges. So making mistakes and just accepting them and moving forward in life has been…. One of the hardest things for me.
But I know this is something that I need to do, something that needs to happen in order for me to actually live the life I want.
Here are some things I hope to accomplish in the new year.
Desiree’s 2019 Resolutions
- Writing in this 1 year journal; “Q & A a day – For Writers – 365 questions for creative exploration”
- Starting my 50 book reading goal, and actually accomplishing the goal.
- Sticking to this blog, writing reviews, writing posts, staying consistent.
- Opening up my candle business!
- Finding and maintaining hobbies, despite my lack of motivation.
- Finally finding my career and/or passions in life.
- Choosing to find positives in every situation. No matter how negative.
So here is to new beginnings!
Here is to the us that we so desperately want to be.
Believe in yourself, push forward, make those leaps that you normally would never dare to make. Accomplish big things and little things, because life is all about both.
Here is to you, to me, to us.
Here is to 2019!
