New Year; New Me!… For A Week Until Back To Normal

tumblr_mji6cg7YZ31qd9jlto1_1280-650x433so its 2015.
a year that has everyone is “new year; new me!”.
whenever any new year rolls around,
everyone wants to start getting rid of baggage.
we mentally start packing the things we created for ourselves.
things we vowed we would stop doing as we put them in an emotional u-haul.

  that ex we are still addicted to
those cakes and cookies that gave us those love handles
 the cigarettes that keep us sane when we are stressed
those random one nighters that leave our holes sore in the morning

the problem for most of us is that somewhere down the line,
we always revert back to unpacking the mess.
we simply put them away without really getting rid of them.
we are like hoarders for bad habits.
since today is the first day of the new year,
i had to wonder…

Are we kidding ourselves with new years resolutions?..

this year i didn’t set any resolutions.
i didn’t vow to find a wolf or a “to do” list to get my career started.
don’t get me wrong because i do want a man and a career.
i just haven’t got any solid plans to do anything.
i could have said:

“so this year ima do this and that and maybe this.
i hope that by doing those things and headed there,
i will be making my life blossom!”

all while feeling like this inside:

griefi didn’t do any of that last night.
i just gave my year to god at church and asked him to guide me.
when we say “this is how i want this year to go”,
we are actually creating a kind of resistance.
we burn ourselves out or get bored chasing these goals we set
we should all just relax and take one day at a time.
now this means we should be lazy,
as faith without action leads creating nothing at all,
but we shouldn’t be so turnt up to sticking to plans we may not follow.

so i say take one day at a time.
stop and simply smell the roses.
all these same people screaming “grind time” and “no sleep”
if you haven’t noticed but they still where they are.
i believe life is about luck and just “your season”.
follow the signs the universe places and the urges your spirit gives you.
let 2015 be the year that you follow your heart.
the year that you set no resolutions and just expect the best.
the year you THINK BIG and visualize your dreams.
if the worse does happen,
as no year can be ever be completely perfect,
we will simply just say:
ITsHandledOliviaPopeunleash that inner werewolf on that muthafucka.
if you need to complain and whine,
give yourself a 5 minute moment to get it out.
don’t hold in what has hurt you.
look life is all about experience.
trial and error.
without making mistakes,
and even not sticking to these resolutions,
that is where we find our strength and character.
i’m not perfect and i’m not gonna try to be this year.
i do feel 2015 will be a good situation for me.
i hope it is one of the best for you.
happy new year of safe and successful mountain climbing ahead foxhole.

  1. I didn’t set any resolutions either. I just hope for even better things happening this year. I also just take it one day at a time and everyone else should too.

    Happy New Year to you and everyone else as well.

  2. I didn’t make any New Years resolutions either. I’m just trying to stay focused on my goals and become a better man than I was before. These things I try to do daily though.

    1. You took the words right out of my mouth. I’m focusing on evolving and that starts when I choose for it to. No need for all the bullshitting

    This^ is good advice. I’m gonna do that from here on out.

  4. Honestly, 2014 was the year of meltdowns for me. All those defense mechanisms and bad coping skills I’ve used my entire life stopped working completely.

    The dude that always has a plan of action had to admit for the first time “I don’t have a fucking clue!”.

    I honestly felt my lack of direction and feelings of being trapped were signs that my life was over.

    The only thing I can say is the prospect of going back to the same hell for a job and being in the same stagnant place mentally, emotionally, and professionally is a fate worse than death in my mind.

    1. ^that last paragraph hit my soul.

      “The only thing I can say is the prospect of going back to the same hell for a job and being in the same stagnant place mentally, emotionally, and professionally is a fate worse than death in my mind.”

      when i say i cosign this super heavy.

  5. Yea I didn’t do any resolution too. To me it kinda stupid to do New Year resolution because no one really does it so. I should had follow my heart today when it told me not to call my mom’s sister, but my mom had to insist on it. And that fucking bitch who doesn’t know at all has the nerve to give me a fucking attitude. I should had listen to my spirit and said no

  6. Nice post. I also feel that when you plan too much, things never work out as you hoped. One day at a time is key and I plan to continue to do that, in addition to make strides to my goals. Happy New Year J and to everyone else.

  7. Just made me think because I set New Year’s resolutions morning LOL. I never thought to ask God to guide me and take it from there but I’m going to I think that way to be a lot less stress if I don’t reach a certain goal or anything this year

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
