Hey readers, how has 2018 been treating you so far? So far, 2018 has been very chill. I watched The Greatest Showman recently and it was the absolute best. I was really engaged by the songs, the artistic approach they went with, it was simply the best movie of 2018 yet. And 2018 just started! But with that said, I also reflected a little bit of what I want to conquer in 2018 and what I wanted to leave behind in 2017. Instead of setting New Year Resolutions, I thought about the 5 things I’m leaving behind in 2017 and what to keep in 2018. Well maybe it is kind of like a new year resolution, but for my mind set, I will hopefully actually do them this year. But one thing is for sure, I’m not leaving ice cream behind in 2017!
So here it is,
5 things I’m leaving behind in 2017:
This is one thing I’m leaving behind in 2017, laziness. I’m going to try and start by living my life to the fullest and none of this, “i’ll do it tomorrow” mantra. If I want to do something, I will do it. No more, ‘I’m too lazy for this.’ Maybe I’ll learn something new or gain an unforgettable experience.
2. Non-Existence Exercise
I’m leaving behind my non-existence physical lifestyle. I’ve been so lazy that exercising wasn’t a priority, nor did I have the time when I was busy. This year, I really want a more physical life style to be a priority. That mean’s more yoga, more running, really work on that endurance.
Now, I already have a post planned called the 10 things I hate, or something along those lines. But, it is technically something I want to leave behind in 2017. I know it’s quite hypocritical but whatever. I have to start somewhere.
I’m a negative person, or have a lot of negative thoughts. It’s always been like that. I would have thoughts such as, “I’m not good enough”, “there are better people out there than me” etc. This year I want to focus on all the positive things that I am and can be.
Some things happen for a reason, and I don’t want to live with “what would have happened, if…”. This year, I’m going to be happy with my choices, and be confident with them. No more Ifs.
5. Lack of Consistency
I would always start something but never finish it until the end. And that’s what I’m leaving behind in 2017, my lack of consistency. I want to make sure that I go through things until the end. For example, I used to journal for a good two weeks and just simply stop. Now I want to make sure that I journal everyday of 2018.
There we have it, the 5 things I’m leaving behind in 2017. Laziness, non-existence exercise, negativity, the if’s and the lack of consistency. What are your 5 things? Let me know in the comments below!
