HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Last year was incredible, it was difficult, it was eye opening, and it as odd number (which usually isn’t as favorable for me). Am I excited for the 2014? Absolutely! After all the mistakes I have made, I sure as hell won’t be making them again so my chances of making this an even better year are definitely looking good.
This is one area that I have really had a lot of eye opening experiences in.
1. Everybody Needs Somebody- the Blues Brother’s couldn’t have put it better. We need love, we need someone to hold, kiss, and share those amazingly funny moments which make life so sweet.
2. Looks Don’t Matter At the End- Yes, I did just write that. But here is the thing, you need attraction at the beginning, absolutely. As time goes by this becomes secondary, or even tertiary. When you love or care for someone deeply you overlook the little things that would turn you off or that you would find unattractive; nail biting, messy, but under no circumstances do saggy balls fall into that category. If your man has saggy balls you need to leave… you’ll find that those balls will hit you in unfavorable ways, trust me.
1. Sanity- You need friends, as much as an introvert as you may be, you NEED friends. This group of specially selected individuals are your bread and butter to sanity. Who else is going to hear you talk about Ancient Aliens and your fear of waking up looking like your mother? Or tell you that no, your boobs don’t look like tear drops (not me, I have fabulous boobs).
2. There is No Such Thing as Friends With Benefits- I really never was fond of this label. I know psychologist like to label thing in order to study them (seriously, they actually have to label things. So next time someone says why you need to label things just answer them that it will be labeled eventually by a psychologist and so you might as well get on board) but this is one of those labels/titles/term that I really disagree on. It might actually have to do with age, but if you are friends, are in your 30’s, and are sleeping with this person, there is a deeper connection between the two of you than just getting off. Take a deep breath and rethink what’s going on in your relationship. I am not saying by any means that this is the person you should marry, I am just stating that this is a deeper and more significant relationship than what has been previously thought.
HAPPINESS ≠ MONEY
It took a long time, but the happiness does not solely rely dependently on money. Happiness is really an exercise of a person to see the best in situations, to exercise what makes you feel happy; a run, a good movie on TV, playing with your pup, or breaking out in a full on dance mood while cleaning. Happiness is all within you, no money needed.
I love making new years resolutions, but I also think it is important to look back and make realist changes as to what can be achieved. So this is just a little list of what I have learned. I have also taken into making my resolutions this year on a month to month bases. So without delaying this any further, I have a date with my Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred video. As I live and breath this is the month where I see how this video ends! Best of luck, happiness, and peace to each and everyone one of you lovely people!
