New Year, New Me!

For those of you that are cliche’s like me, we think that a new year means a new start.  What are my goals or new years resolutions? Well I’ll tell you!

1.) To get physically fit and healthy. NOT SKINNY

2.) Get a job that actually uses my degree

3.) Cook more and be healthy about it

4.) Stress and worry less

5.) Cut the sweets down

6.) Take the DAT and apply for Dental School

There ya have it folks. Completely do-able right? Well you’d think so.  I am a do-er. I always have these big ideas and when life gets in the way I tend to get overwhelmed and back down. NO LONGER! Let me explain why.  I am almost 23. I should be an adult right? No. I am new to this whole “Adult” thing and so far I am not a fan, but there’s no way out.  Thankfully, Momma and Daddy raised me to be headstrong and willful.  Resolutions tend to fall off come February 7th  I believe it is? After a month of going hard and making those awesome goals seem like a reality we get lazy here in the South.  No big deal, there’s always next year right? WRONG! Every day is another chance to glorify God and change yourself.  You don’t need it to be the first of the year to become a new you.  DO YA THANGG! Every day may seem like a struggle, but with the right attitude anything is possible.  Just make sure you have the Good Book, prayer, a good attitude, and the right people cheering you on.

Okay, now to explain my resolutions.

In high school, all I ever wanted to do was be skinny. Why? That’s just silly. I now realize that being a size zero just makes a woman look like a 12 year old girl and I’d much rather keep my curves. I just want to be healthy.  Especially since I’m getting married this year. (What?!?)

I graduated in August with my bachelors of science in Biology and I haven’t found a job that I actually need my degree for.  That’s the reality of college; getting a job is much more difficult than you’d think.

I want to cook more and be healthy about it this year.  I love carbs. I could live on carbs and I hate to admit it, but I kind of do. Sad, I know. I’m a texture person and healthy foods have weird textures and I wish I could eat them, I just get physically ill.

I am a stressful person.  I have an anxiety disorder and struggle with it.  I worry about everything, even things that I know don’t matter.  I just can’t help it. So this year, I’d like to try to worry and stress less.

This one will probably be the most difficult.  I don’t really care for chocolate all that much, but I really enjoy candy.. Like: Fun dips, nerd ropes, etc. Yes, I am really a five year old trapped in a 22 year old’s body. Sad story! My goal for 2015 is to try to cut back on the sweets as much as possible.  Maybe I’ll even cut them out all together, but for now I’m going to try to keep it to just once a month.

This last one is so dear to my heart that I am extremely terrified of it.  I want to be a dentist.  That’s why I went to college in the dang first place! I have a fear of failure, as a lot of people do, but mine is so immense that it is literally keeping me from my dream.  I pray about it to get strength from God and I tell myself that the DAT is only a test, but it scares the living daylights out of me.  So this year, I’m taking the plunge and I’m doing it. I’m taking the DAT and applying to dental school. R0ll TiDE.

What are your resolutions and how do you plan to keep them?
