Year of doing things

The great philosopher Kylie Jenner named 2016 the year of "realizing things."

"I feel like this year is really about, like, the year of just realizing stuff and everyone around me, we’re all just like realizing things. 2016, looking good," were the exact words she blessed us with.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan is not known for their eloquence or intellect by any means, but Kylie was not totally incorrect.

I did realize a lot in 2016.

Now don’t get me wrong, that statement was ridiculously ambiguous, but in 2016 I realized a few important things regarding friendships, goals and other areas of my life.

When 2017 rolled around, I was curious to see if Kylie would release another earth shattering prophecy, but she did not.

Instead, a friend of mine has dubbed this new year as "the year of doing things."

"We’ve realized the things, now it’s time to do things," she said. At first, I laughed at her statement, but then I decided to embrace it.

I was going to start saying "yes" more often and stop letting fear dictate my life. This new outlook has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone.

So far I have gotten a piercing I’ve always wanted, went on last minute road trips across Texas and chased the sunrise through the Palo Duro Canyon all because of this philosophy. I don’t want to regret the things I did not do.

If you feel the same, join me in saying yes to adventures. Let 2017 be the year you do things, make a dent in your bucket list and live without fear.
