“This is for them bitter somethings: stop living in regret, it’s not over yet!”-Beyoncé (Schoolin’ Life)
2014 has been a year full of new things and trials. Some worked out and some didn’t, but the point is that we’re all still here no matter how trying the year has been. I’ve experienced my share of heartache and disappointments in the past year but I’m deciding to keep it moving with my initial plans regardless of what happened in 2014.
Now, it hasn’t been all bad. 2014 has taught me some valuable lessons and even had its moments that caused for celebration. When you sit back and think about it, 2014 was just a year just like all the others. As we all entered 2015, we had our New Year’s resolutions packed and ready to go but the truth is we don’t need a resolution for the New Year, we need a resolution for our new life.
Resolutions for the New Year are packed with temporary fixes that most of us never complete anyway. As women, it’s time for us to take control of our lives and not because it’s a new year but because it’s a new you! 2015 won’t change anything in your life unless you do. The days are the same days, and the months are all labeled just the same. The only difference there really is, you.
While some of us are still bitter from the impact that 2014 left, just remember that it’s not over. You can start over at any time you see fit. Don’t do it because of the New Year, do it because you want to, because you need to.
So let’s leave 2014 in the past and move forward with new things and new ways in 2015. Let’s vow to become stronger as women, men and people every day. Instead of making resolutions for the New Year, let’s make a new resolution each day and try our best to fulfill it. That’s really what life is all about; taking it one day at a time and getting better as we move along. Here’s to the New Year and becoming THAT GIRL! Cheers!
Let's Chat! What are you leaving behind as 2015 gets underway? Tell us about it here!
