2019 Goals…

It’s safe to say that just like most people I know, 2018 was a rollercoaster of emotions and life was, to say the least, a wild ride. While many amazing things happened in this year, meeting my girlfriend, turning seventeen years old, discovering a new sense of style, 2018 also came with many downs, some that effected me more than I could have imagined. This was the year that my mental health took a drastic turn for the worst at times, I struggled with self image, and I lacked the motivation that I longed to have.

While I wish that 2018 had turned out just a bit differently, we are now in the new year, which means that it is time to let go of the past and work on bettering myself.

  • Start going to therapy to work on the mental health
  • Start working out again, as it was a passion of mine
  • Eat healthy! You know it makes you feel good!
  • Take dance classes!
  • On that topic, try things you have always wanted to (voice lessons, piano lessons, dance)
  • Stop saying negative things about myself
  • Experiment with new styles and trends
  • Even though you’re eating healthy, enjoy yourself. Don’t be so uptight.
  • Try new foods!
  • Go out more, you’re graduating. Enjoy life.
  • Graduate!!
  • Move to San Diego
  • Get a job
  • Get ya license, it’s time. you know it.
  • Go to karaoke, you enjoyed it last time
  • Cook more meals at home
  • Dye my hair
  •  Maybe? Do a solo? At spring concert?
  • Go to concerts!
  • Even if they’re small, go on some trips
  • Stop doubting myself
  • Start enjoying life.
