This year, though, has been a real turning point for me. I learned something really important in the last few weeks: How to respect myself. I've hidden behind a facade of this girl who does things because she thinks they are expected of her. I've stood up for myself, just feel bad in the aftermath, even though there is no need for me to. I learnt to take a leap of fate and it worked out, but I was offered a risky possibility and I decided to leap the second time (this time over the Grand Canyon) and we'll see how it'll play out in the Spring.
So my New Years resolutions for 2018 are these:
- I promise to read more books and share my love for the reading community
- I promise to do the things that make me really, truly happy. Not just things that make people around me happy.
- I promise to be present in the present, not just thinking 'What I'm going to do in five years, ten years time'.
I promise these things proudly since I know that living by these three things is what can and will make me a happier person.
And most importantly, I challenge you to write a post, film a video, Instagram it or shout out to the world your three resolutions. (And link it to the comment section below, so I can check out your site 😉)
Don't forget to share your Year In Books in Goodreads! Let's spread the love of the printed word in 2018 too!
