The Fall

Deciding to get your life together should not be something that one does only at the beginning of the new year. We only have a couple of months left of 2016 and I feel like it's time to set some pre-resolutions. The way I see it, if I get into a routine of trying to put my resolutions into effect then in January, trying to stick to my resolutions won't be so hard. I've just started  uni again and my 21st birthday is looming, which may be what has sparked my intention to change and to somewhat start afresh and better myself. My goal before 2017 is to get my work, body and mind right. So far I think I'm doing a pretty good job. Trying to get yourself right, I have found, means you may also have to be a little bit selfish. It means saying no to that night out when you have a 9am the next day and a ton of reading to catch up on. It means saying no to that expensive dinner when you're trying to save money.  It means saying no to that ex who claims to want to be friends when you know it can't work. It means spending more time on yourself and your wellbeing; not giving yourself so much and so easily to other people. This I've found hard in the past but sometimes it is necessary. Sometimes you've got to put yourself first in order to heal and grow. The leaves are changing and so can you.

  1. Well,for me, I think waiting till the last day of the year before making some resolutions kinda makes sticking to the difficult. If I have some resolutions underway before the end of the year, I'd become used to them when next year comes. Say I want to have the perfect body by next year. that means I should start working out from now so that by October 2017, working out is a way of life not some mechanical routine I seldom remember. BTW trying to get myself right for me also includes reducing my circle of friends and downloading more books online...I have some catching up to do
