As you may have noticed, I never posted my resolutions for 2012. To be completely honest, January was an awful month for me. It was stressful and I neglected my health for stress and junk food. February, however, holds a refreshing sense of peace. Last night, I finally felt things coming together. I ran three miles, cleaned, and spent the evening thinking about my goals. I think my ultimate 2012 resolution is to go out and make things happen, but to also just let things happen. What is meant to be will be.
Become healthy and happy. Over the past six months, I have lost twenty five pounds, and I have about thirty more to lose by this summer. I have done so in a totally healthy way--I try to eat clean and healthy and run as often as possible. I started out running one mile at a time and I just broke three miles last month. In 2012, I will reach my ultimate goal weight. I will be fit, healthy, and happy. I made the switch to vegetarianism a little over two months ago, and I have loved it so far. I hope to run five miles at a time by the end of the summer. I feel strong and invincible, and I know I'll keep pushing.
Stop being so cynical and stop being two-faced. I really need to stop talking about people behind their back. I don't think I'm a gossipy person, but I've been acting extremely passive aggressive lately. I also get overwhelmed and stressed about politics, and I have become jaded and cynical. I want to really start seeking out the beauty and optimism in life again. I also want to tell people exactly how I feel to their faces and stop talking about them behind their back.
Make things happen, but let things happen. What is meant to be will be. I need to work on being more zen. I over-analyze everything and attempt to control every single situation. When I have an early curfew, I check my phone every five minutes until it's time to leave. I need to learn to relax. I also want to be a go-getter. 2012 will be my year.
Little things. Stop biting my nails. Download new music. Develop better posture. Be more calm, loving, and understanding towards my family. Blog more frequently. Drink lots of water. Eat clean. Find myself and stop looking for love. Run six miles at a time. Graduate!
I am ready. 2012, let's do this.
