Dear 2018,

Where do I start….

We have been here for a while now.

Let me reintroduce myself; I’m a hard working passionate young lady that strives for more.

2018 a fresh start, the things we always hear from people are: ‘I’m cutting off fake people, new year new me, I’m leaving all the bull crap behind me etc.’ these are the standard things we hear every year.

But here’s something new I’ve told myself: “just do you and do better.”

You being able to see another day in another year just means that you still have the ability and the capacity to do the things you are called to do. Step up and go for the things you want to accomplish in life. Set goals for yourself take a pen and paper start writing down the things you want to achieve in life, both the short term and long term. Make sure that the goals you have set for yourself will be followed by actions in order to achieve them. So if there is anything in your life you want to change, set goals.

When I look back at the past years I can tell that I have learned so much and I have grown a lot. I used to become easily angry and I was always ready to ‘show them’, this applied to anybody who was coming for me. When days and years pass by you realize that it isn’t just anything that you have to give attention to. Don’t let your behaviour be predictable by others. Maybe you used to be like me, you used to be a certain way in the past and people always had something to talk about, but with the new you just surprise your surroundings on how you will act different in that same situation that would normally irritate you. I’m not saying that you should change your way of living for others but just be the better version of YOU.

In life risks needs to be taken in order for you to achieve something. You need to JUMP! However, you jumping for the first time doesn’t mean that at the ‘get go’ everything will go according to how you want it to go. Your parachute may not open right away when you jump, tests and trials will come your way, you’ll be provoked. But if you never jump your parachute will not open, you will never soar, you’ll be good at what you’re doing at the moment but the skills and abilities you have will still be within you.

Show the world who you are and what you got, let them see the gifts inside of you, be an example to others who need that extra push to do the things they ever wanted to do in life.

This year 2018 to be able to come far in life, set a good example for others. Make sure your goals are not easy to achieve, otherwise they’re not big enough. Set bigger goals, goals that excite you and makes you better after you achieve them. If it is truly important to you, you will make it happen. If it is not, you will find an excuse.

How bad do you want it?
