2016: The Year of Complacency

Sheeeeeeeesh! The title of this post alone was a bit much for me to write. But I wanted to be completely blunt with myself and you all of course.

Some of us are able to get up everyday and "maintain". As I have previously discussed, I am not one of those people. I am extremely goal-oriented and if I do not set daily, weekly, quarterly goals, etc; often times, nothing gets done. In 2015, I was the most driven I had ever been. I had a rigid set of goals and was able to strike every single one I had set for myself off  my list that year. Buttttttt  due to that rigidness, I  definitely went into siesta mode for all of 2016.

Now, in 2014 I had a lazy year/the most eye-opening year of my life. What a combo! lol  I realized things about myself that I had been oblivious to my whole life. But this...this complacency...this was completely different. It actually felt a bit scarier because it is a lot harder to catch. Laziness sticks out like a sore thumb and it's easy for myself and others around to call me out on. Complacency is a lot more low-key, and often times you are the only one who truly knows if you are being complacent or not. So this year I kind of just blew in the wind. Went to work, hung out with loved ones, traveled, bought a bunch of unnecessary things, paid bills, gained a bunch of weight from traveling (no complaints), but I honestly couldn't tell you anything I achieved for myself or others this year. Kind of just feels like a blur to be honest and that is soooooo not okay. I have never and will never be someone who is comfortable just letting life happen to me.

I'm not into New Year's resolutions but I did however write down and set my goals for the next 6 months. The most important thing is realizing what works for you. Writing things down and being somewhat rigid when it comes to certain things in my life is what works for me. And of course, everyone knows you cannot plan life but you can sure prepare the hell out of it!

So shout out to no longer just blowing in the wind for 2017 (except for this fab picture of course)!


PS- After deep thought I realized I did become A LOT more organized! Major feat for me 💃
