Each year, my resolutions are pretty much the same: eat better, become healthier, lose weight, get a better job, save more, pay down debt, and improve relationships with friends and family. All important stuff, right?
2017 is no different. My top priorities are still becoming a healthier person, improving my financial situation, and establishing healthy relationships. But this year, I’m going to add another resolution to the top of the list:
I think many of us hold back a lot, myself included, mainly in fear that something horrible may happen. Worrying those things may not work out. Staying in a comfortable job. Staying in a comfortable relationship. Staying in your comfort zone. But being comfortable doesn’t allow growth. Stop worrying so much, and just go for it!
Realizing that you cannot change the past, and worrying about the future takes away from being able to enjoy the present. Cliché, but true. Face your fears, and being more confident in yourself. Be confident in your ability to overcome any obstacle that you may face, and that in the end, you will be okay. I’m going to keep this in mind as I look forward to 2017, in every aspect of life: health, career, love, etc.
A few resolutions for 2017 in no specific order…

Be Bolder. Be Braver. Live Louder.
