In 2013 I became a person I don’t like. I have a lazy, I-hate-the-world, woe is me attitude. I have a great life and don’t deserve to be any of those things.
I’m not saying that 2014 is going to change my personality entirely but I will try damn hard. I’m going to bash the negativity and let more positivity in. I need to do this for me. I’ve recently wondered if I’m really happy or not and the blunt answer to that is that I’m not- in the slightest. I don’t think that I am being the best version of myself and that I could be better and do better for the world around me.
I sit on my computer nearly all day. Which would be fine if I was doing productive things on there but the majority of the time I’m not. I need to get my butt into gear and do something with my life. But dear lord I am 20 years old, surely there is something in the real world that I could be doing. One thing I plan on doing, to give me something to do, is volunteering. In my town we have a children’s museum that is always looking for volunteers. I get along with kids really well and they genuinely make me happy. I love the way that they see the world, and I think we should all view it like them.
The next thing on my list is to become a healthier person. It is hard right now, as I live in a dorm room, but I will try with all my might to be as healthy as I can. I want to start by eating better. Not only by eating food that is better for me, but eating natural foods. I want to cut out any preservatives and additives that I am currently eating just because I think I will feel better. I’ve already cut down my soda intake a ton but I would be happy not drinking any at all… coffee on the other hand will always be part of my diet. Right now I don’t exercise whatsoever, apart from walking to class. That is not okay with me because I used to exercise all the time. I’m not going to join a gym because I know that won’t work. I found an article on how to begin running, and I plan on doing just that. I will devote myself to the 20 minutes it takes and do it every day- like I said before I’m done being lazy.
I started my blog in October of 2013 but I have been so lazy with it. I hardly ever post and when I do it is some sort of angsty rant. I want fewer of those. I want to post on here at least 3 times a week. I’m thinking of having themed days just to narrow down my ideas. I want to continuously post so that I can become a much better blogger. I absolutely love doing this and want to take it to some new level. I would like to promote myself on some other blogs and have there be good content for new readers to see. I want to see my audience grow and bring the ones already here along for the ride of my lifetime.
