2020 is here loves; whether or not we’re ready to face it. It’s the start of a whole new decade where we’re able to revamp ourselves into the people we want to be. New decade resolutions anyone?
While it can be a scary thought to take on a new year and all its possibilities, it’s that kind of good fear that can motivate you. I mean 10 years is a long time you guys.
Do you really want to look back on who you are now and be disappointed about the chances you didn’t take? Or even worse…. the kind of person you are.
Not I. The best way you can shape yourself into the greatness you know you can become is by holding yourself accountable for the resolutions you set each year.
I know–we’re all guilty of not following through on some or even all of the ones we make for ourselves, but I seriously don’t think that there is any better time to rewire our mindsets than 2020 itself.
So if you’re ready to tackle your resolutions headfirst, then, by all means, read on. I’ve bared my mind, heart, and soul into these rather personal resolutions, and I hope you’re able to find some inspiration for your own.
- Become more confident in taking the extra step when interacting with others. (i.e. walking up to new people, random “good mornings”, cracking the first joke, whatever)
- Learn Vietnamese (but any language works!) You can add me on Duolingo if you’d like ’cause I’ll totally need the motivation.
- Blog regularly as an outlet.
- Stop being food-focused
Diet culture is toxic and all too real. I’m more than ready to finally stop worrying about calories and ‘fear’ foods. It took a while to get here, but I do sincerely believe that I’m too young and too close to being underweight to be relying so heavily on “safe” foods.
5. Start reading the bible regularly.
It’s important to me that I devote more time to spiritual reading and less on constant stressing over daily endeavors. I tend to be a bit of an overachiever, and focusing on personal studies is a great way to unwind and give myself a break.
6. Get my period back.
Yes, I know that this one is more personal than the others but I’m here to be brutally honest with my readers. This is one of my biggest resolutions for the new year as I lost my period in October 2018 presumably from weight loss. So it’s been more than too long to get my body working properly again. Secondary amenorrhea is a real issue that a lot of women face yet refrain from talking about.
7. Focus more on living in the moment.
8. Stop resisting change.
9. Focus on the more important things in life.
10. To love my body no matter what.
- Get stronger
- Grow my gluteus maximus
- Get back into dancing at school
See, I tried to keep this list short and sweet. Nothing too rash or extraordinary; just practical goals I plan to fully follow through with.
