New year, better me

As I began 2019, I started thinking about what I wanted to do differently this year and I realized I just want to be better.
To be honest, 2018 was one of my worst and best years. There was a lot of pain, hurt and sadness, but also a lot of love and happiness.
Looking back, I realized I wasn’t my best self. I was sad, exhausted, lazy and angry. I also realized that I can be very self-destructive because I tend to ruin any good thing that comes my way. I just don’t want to be that person anymore. I want to be able to see the glass as half full in 2019.
In January of 2018, I lost a good amount of weight. After I fell in love with my amazing boyfriend, I gained it all back and then some. It’s that relationship weight. I think we all know what I’m talking about!
Although I’m happy with my current weight, I still want to work out more this year. It isn’t about losing weight or being toned. It’s about being healthy and taking care of my body.
Along with that, I also need to start watching what I eat this year. I can’t keep stuffing whatever I want into my body because half the time, I crave wings and pizza.
Another goal is self-care and love. I constantly want to change features about my body, but that’s not how it works. I need to love who I am.
I also need to stop thinking so negatively about everything. That type of thinking is toxic, if I’m being honest.
Lastly, I want to grow deeper in my faith with my heavenly father. I believe I am loved by the one true King. I believe He will guide me through this year, watch over me and help me.
So, here’s to a new year and a better version of myself.
