Hello and welcome to my cheesy New Year’s Post! (Yes-I am aware its been 2019 for 11 days now.)
As much as I make fun of people who use the New Year to set goals and reinvent parts of their life (I am a firm believer that you can do that any day), I do it too. On New Year’s Day, my mom asked me what my focus word for 2019 was going to be because she just now got on board and heard about that. I brushed it off but I started thinking that maybe I could pick one too. I know people typically will pick an adjective such as “calm” or “carefree” but I simply picked: “hello”.
I picked “hello” because right off the bat, I knew there would be changes to my life. I got married at the end of 2018, I also quit one of my jobs at the end of 2018. I knew there would be new people in my life and new opportunities right away and I wanted to be able to greet them with a friendly “hello”, rather than hiding from them.
Every year, I set goals for myself knowing in the back of my mind that they aren’t attainable. (Can anyone relate? Please comment if you can so I feel better hahah.) This year is probably no exception. I have an extremely ambitious bucket list of places I want to visit but unless I win the lottery, there’s no way I will make it to all of them. Year after year, I am blown away by how much can happen in a year- 2018 especially. My main goal is just to go along for the ride- and enjoy it.
So, hello 2019. It’s nice to meet you.
