As we near towards 2015, do you have your new years resolutions set and ready to go? Whether it be to lose weight, quit smoking or get rid of toxic people in your life, one thing is for certain: 2014 was a wild ride filled with outrageous celebrity gossip, a progressive turn in same-sex marriages and unfortunate celebrity deaths. Life is way too short to worry to sit around an be miserable, so it’s time to go after your destiny.
People are going to talk whether your doing bad or good, so take a look in the mirror and go after what you really want. Don’t sit back, relax and think that it will come to you. I admit, I’ve always thought good things come to those who wait, but really it’s the hustlers and go-getter types of people who achieve exactly what they want. After living in Colorado for a year, it opened up my eyes to a whole other world filled with new relationships, an awesome career in casting and exposure to an outdoor lifestyle with mountains, adventures and cleansing of my entire soul. Instead of setting those new years resolutions and breaking them once Spring hits, truly sit down and make a list of things you want to achieve in your overall life. If you want a new job, look for one. Want to write a book or move to California? Take the steps to make it happen. If you put your mind to the desires you want for the new year, you will find a way to make it happen. If the people you’re surrounding yourself only reach out to you to party, it’s time to clean out that messy closet. You’ll never get to where you want to be if you constantly go out and wake up the next day regretting everything you did the night before.
As I near the big 30, I have noticed that life is quite simple. Once you rid yourself of all the negative shit going on in your life, you will see there’s a big, bright and exciting life ahead of you. If you feel you have lost it all and can’t go on anymore, just know that it will get better. Speaking from experiences of my own, I can honestly say that it works if you put your mind towards a happy, healthy and productive lifestyle. Surround yourself with people who challenge you to become a better person; people who want you to succeed in anything you choose to do. Of course you will face obstacles along the way and often feel like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, but just know if you really want something and are in need of a drastic change, you will find a way to make it happen. So, cheers to the new year, cheers to a new you and an awesome adventure god has in store for you.
