HOLLA! I’ve spent the past couple of weeks being a horribly absent blogger, and it was heavenly. Sometimes you need a long break to remind yourself what’s really up, ya know? But, I’m baaaaack! Happy 2013! As the clock stroke midnight on 2013 and my husband was sick at home while I raged on with my gals, I realized that I had almost no expectations going into this year. Last year, I knew that I wanted to get engaged, get married and move to New York, but this year I have nothing. I’ve decided to try something new and just let life happen. But I did make goals for myself that I intend to accomplish this year. Not resolutions, more of just the evolution from the person that I am now to the person that I ultimately want to become. You know it’s all about the journey. Here are my steps:
It isn’t that I would ever say that I am one to shy away from adventure, but I am the one that goes home tired a lot. I want to intentionally take adventures and do new things. I want to travel more and go see new art exhibits. I think I sort of owe it to this time in my life to really see what’s out there.
2013 is the year of sexy. “What would Beyonce do” is really the question that I ask myself when faced with any tricky situation. Laugh all you want, but I encourage all of you to take this on this mentality too. Who has ever failed by learning to be a little bit more in touch with their femininity in their everyday life? Note that I didn’t say promiscuous– I’m not asking what would Kim K do- I just think everyone can benefit by women being more involved with their confident, secure, sexy woman inside. Who runs the world? Girls.
I have to be more daring. I have to learn to put myself in risky and sometimes uncomfortable situations. This just means applying myself more at my job, taking more risks in the clothes that I wear and daring to learn more about the things that I care about. You know, just be more daring in my day to day life. Year of sexy, y’all!
You know of everyone great because they were consistently great at what they do. But they didn’t become great by doing it here and there or whenever it felt convenient, they became the best because they were consistent with pursuing their craft. Let’s all learn to be more of this this year.
Ahh the plight of a creative- the constant battle to do more and to be more but not knowing how to do or be more of anything. This year, I will overcome this as I seek to be more creative with every decision that I make.
2013 is the year of consistent creativity, hard work, adventures, and daring to be sexy. Are you in?
