This is my last recap from 2016. Craziness.
I read some pretty great books last month! Born a Crime, Better Than New, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Breathe, Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk, and The Art of Healthy Living. Mostly memoir and wellness, which is kind of interesting.
I’ll tell you, though, I’m really excited for the new year. I love the idea of starting over. I love setting goals and making plans and thinking of all the positive things that could happen. I make lists, then tuck them away–and a few months from now I’ll unbury them to see if I’m any closer to reaching my goals.
And I feel good this New Year. A few weeks ago I did something–something big, something that was decades in the making. I’m not going to tell you what it was because I’m annoying. (And also because I don’t think most people will understand why this was such a big deal to me…) But it was huge, YUGE. And I’m proud of myself! Right now, I feel alive. Unstoppable. Light. I feel inspired and focused and unfazed. I’m a little bit scared, but I’m also a lot bit excited about Releasing the Baggage and moving the fuck on. I’m better able to focus on the future and what I want, and that feels really, really good.
Also, I cut off all my hair.
I’m ready for you, 2017!
