Something is different about me this New Year’s Eve, maybe it’s the slightly hellish/eye-opening week I’ve had, this new hair cut or piercing but I don’t have any resolutions to make for 2021. Every year I make a list of things I’m going to do for the new year, for example I’ll create a list of 20 things I want to do and only accomplish 10 then I will spend the end of the year disappointed about the 10 things I didn’t do.
Call me unambitious or lazy but for 2021 I HAVE NO RESOLUTIONS; I’m not embarrassed about it and I don’t feel the need to have any. A lot happened this year and this week which made me re-evaluate myself and my life before this new year! Is it weird to find a piece of yourself literally a day before a new year begins? I did.
I feel at peace going into 2021, I started this blog, I graduated college, my poetry writing has gotten better, my family and what friends I have left are happy and good, I opened my heart and loved someone, my relationship with God is better than I thought it would be and most importantly I’m not a square trying to do circle things anymore; I’m doing square things. The only thing I want for 2021 is to continue what I have now and keep doing me to be honest.
I AM HAPPY, I am happy with my life, myself, the people around me, the choices and decisions I’ve made and the path I’m on. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! CHEERS TO 2021!
