New Year, New Me.

2016 has sucked a bag of dicks.  For me it was full of loss.  The only good thing I've lost this year are a few pounds.  As I have mentioned before, I don't like "resolutions" me "resolutions" are delusional people's irrational wishes, that inevitably set them up for failure.  For me I like to make a list of things I want to consciously work on; not perfect...

  1. Say "No" More.  I am a people pleaser, and to make everyone happy I am constantly going and doing things that'd I'd rather not do.  This year if I am tired and it's your birthday, I will rain check.
  2. Drink Less Diet Coke.  
  3. Stress Less.  I overthink and over analyze everything.  I try and keep my cool, but I am a bottle of nerves, and the stress comes out through my body with flare-ups of psoriasis...which then stresses me out even more.
  4. Travel More.
  5. Save Money.  If I have money in my account, I will spend it... like it's literally burning a hole in my pocket.  Savings account?  -Whats that?
  6. Take Better Care Of Myself.  I work myself very hard.  Whether it's at the gym, work, or play...I go balls to the wall.  I need more sleep in 2017.  
  7. Volunteer.  ...going back to #6, I don't have much free time, but animal rescue carries a huge weight on my heart.  Every-little-bit helps, and prioritizing my time to help these animals could be a few hours that helps save their lives.
  8. Put Myself First.  I like to think I treat myself, but buying myself shoes isn't putting myself first.  I seem to take on everyone's problems and feelings over my own.  I want to continue to be a good friend, but take care of myself first and foremost.

Before we start our clean slate, lets take a look back at my favorite looks from 2016:
