2017 has been spent wasting oodles of time loving somebody else and trying to please others and what was the result? Little or no appreciation, right? It is time now to finally have your guards up, open your eyes and finally put yourself on top of that damn priority list which is loaded with unimportant people on top. A year full of failed plans and disappointments, 2017 has not been sweet to most of us. As it is rightly said that it is never too late which is why you need to make the most of 2018, love yourself and make it your year.
2018-THE YEAR TO BECOME FULLY AWARE OF YOUR WORTH
Past cannot be changed and it is irreversible and there is no point wasting more time thinking about what went wrong in 2017. You have been giving others way more importance than they deserved and you had put yourself on the backseat. You did this because you weren’t aware that you deserve equal happiness that you were willing to give others. This is because you do not know how special and kind you are. You must become aware about your self-worth and not bargain it for anything in 2018.
2018- THE YEAR TO ACCEPT YOURSELF
Let 2018 be the year where you don’t need people to come up and tell you where you stand in your life. You should know where you are at life emotionally, spiritually and financially. Accept your situations and don’t be ashamed if you aren’t doing fairly well. This year is the year to conquer things and you will only be able to do that when you accept yourself for who you are. Don’t be delusional about any aspect of your life. Embrace your curves and those extra bulges if you have any, or that skinny legs and short height. Understand that it is okay to be who you are, in fact it is fucking awesome because nobody on this planet can play that role better than you, yourself.
2018- THE YEAR TO TRY YOUR HOBBIES
Make a list of all those things that you have been wanting to do for long time now but have always ended up making excuses. That salsa class you wanted to take, that cake you wished baking, or those skates that have been lying in rack for ages now. 2018 should be the year where you make no compromise with your heart and try your hobbies.
2018- THE YEAR TO VALUE TRUE FRIENDS
In the hustle bustle of life, we tend to undervalue the pillar of strengths in our life, our friends. We meet so many new people that we forget fixing plans with the real ones who have been there for us through thick and thin. Do not let that happen over again. Let 2018 be the year of celebrating friendships. Let your colleagues go out for that dinner by themselves, but you make time for your buddies and grab a drink with them instead. Call them and make plans every once in a while and make them realize that you still care for them.
2018- THE YEAR TO DATE YOURSELF
You have killed a lot of your precious time in 2017 searching for love outside. You could have delivered that love by simply being sweet to yourself. Love from a partner is an altogether different feeling but you cannot keep awaiting the ecstasy. Treat yourself like you are dating yourself, make yourself feel special on random occasions, buy yourself flowers, go out alone and spend time with yourself. Mature people will understand how rewarding and delightful this experience is.
2018- THE YEAR TO BE INDEPENDENT
Take a pledge that you are going to move a step closer to independence every month in 2018. If you are a student, you could contribute to the family by taking up daily chores for example cooking. Try working part time and stop asking pocket money from your parents. Start being independent. Pay your bills and don’t dependent on anyone. Travel solo, go to restaurants alone, watch movies by yourself and go for shopping. This will enable you to understand that you can do things alone and will help you face your fears.
2018- THE YEAR TO WORK ON YOUR MISTAKES
2017 has been the year of mistakes and blunders. Let 2018 be the year to treat those mistakes well by drawing lessons and working on it. Be calculative about your actions and make sure that you are not affecting anyone negatively with your decisions. Mistakes are a part of life and it only indicates growth and progress.
2018- THE YEAR TO SMILE MORE
And most important of all, smile. Enough tears have been shed and a fortune of time has been spent cribbing and complaining. Let that not be the case in 2018 as well. So smile and be happy as much as you can and inspire other to smile more and stay happy.
The next set of 365 days is just about to get served, make sure that it is not just another year. Pay importance to the said things above and start loving yourself more. You cannot keep hiding from yourself. You have to accept yourself and love yourself more than anybody else.
