What are your goals for the New Year? I was never big into resolutions, but last year, I committed to reviving my life. And while 2019 was filled with more ups and downs, I didn’t make all of the progress that I wanted to make.
While my mental health is better, being in a depressed state for almost two years has lasting ramifications. My career, my finances, my friendships suffered and my physical health all suffered. But the biggest blow was to my confidence.
When I heard ‘boss up and change your life’ in the lyric to Lizzo’s Good as Hell, I thought, “That needs to be my motto for 2020.”
I need to start believing in myself again, and only way I know how to do that is to do the things that seem difficult — the projects that I put on the back burner, the career moves that I need to make, etc.. I have to stop being so afraid to fail that I become too paralyzed to try. And I need to summon the courage to do the hard thing anyway, even when I’m scared.
So what are your 2020 goals? Small or large, it’s always nice to start off a new year with a clear picture of what you want to change, achieve, or do next.
