This year has been a blessing, filled with hard times, lessons and laughter. But, a new year is just around the corner, and for the first time ever you should really promise yourself something.
Promise yourself that the new year will be your year to be selfish. Yes, you read it right, YOUR YEAR TO BE SELFISH. For once let this be your New Year resolution.
Promise to yourself that you will go to sleep when you are tired, and you won’t wait for a text from someone.
Promise yourself that you will choose to wear makeup or no makeup, have your hair down or up, wear a provocative dress or comfy jeans because you feel like it and it makes you happy.
Promise to yourself that you will work out and play your music loud, that you will set new fitness goals only because it makes you feel good.
Promise to yourself, that you will go to coffee shops by yourself and won’t look up from your book or journal.
Promise to yourself that you will call your closest family and friends and tell them how much you love them and that everything is fine, then you will turn off your phone.
You will do it just to sip a cup of coffee or tea while you watch the beautiful sunset over the sea, the lake or the ocean. Promise to yourself that you will study until you are completely satisfied with just how much you know.
Promise to yourself, that you won’t pick up the phone call from that person who had done you wrong, who was too busy for you when you needed them.
Don’t pick up, do not choose to be polite or kind, choose yourself.
Promise to yourself that you are going to use your planner religiously. That you are going to drink enough water, promise to yourself that you will drink coffee or tea, and read books under your cozy blanket.
Promise to yourself that you are going to do your best to be organized. Promise to yourself that you are going to appreciate every single day for what it is and that you are going to be grateful for that day and for everything in life.
That you are going to do only those things which make you happy.
That you are going to try out new recipes, visit family and friends, go see a movie, go on walks just to relax your mind, write, take afternoon naps, and simply enjoy life.
Promise to yourself, that you are going to do all of the things above mentioned because you truly deserve it. Two thousand nineteen will be the year you are going to be selfish.
Why? Because you have spent every single year before pleasing everyone around you, worrying about them and putting them first.
The new year will be the year you will learn and understand what it really feels like to be happy and content being yourself and by yourself.
You deserve to be selfish and for once in your life, make yourself a priority.
