LEAPING INTO A NEW YEAR

LEAPING INTO A NEW LEAP YEAR

The time to celebrate a new year is coming. As the world does its best to prepare for celebrations and what's to come, I sit here reminiscing about this year. 2019 was electrifying in so many wonderful and extremely personal ways. I've laughed so hard that I cried. I've also cried so hard that I eventually laughed. I work hard to develop and improve myself all year long. I work towards my goals, or as I like to call them purposes, with a hopeful outlook on whatever is coming my way. Sometimes I accomplish these purposes and other times I fight on until I get it right. With age, I've given up on the idea of resolutions.  New Year's resolutions are great but they tend to fall apart after a while. I simply continue working on be my best self every day.

Over the past couple of years, I've realized that my resolutions have become continuations of things that I've been working on. A new year is a wonderful thing. I look forward to all the things 2020 will throw my way. Yes, I'm even talking about the bad because that means I will grow

This year I continued on the adventure of doing things I've never done before. My ultimate experience was getting on my first plane as an adult a year old and going to Puerto Rico. The second was quitting my job and taking a leap of faith. While that isn't as epic as the last, it worked out in more ways than one. I'm happy. I even got rid of the toxicity in my life and I'm almost done cleaning house when it comes to toxic people. 

2019 was amazing. I don't look back and regret it. I look back and laugh. It was wonderful. It was full of experiences and firsts times.  In 2020 I'd like to continue tackling firsts and new experiences.  There are so many goals/purposes that I wish to do and I can make that happen. Here are some purposes I'd like to cotinue to work on and grow:

  1. I need a passport. Admittingly so, I don't have a passport. This is something that I wish to obtain, Puerto Rico isn't the only tropical island. There are so many and I'm excited to see the rest of the world. My passport will become a part of me. This makes me excited. 
  2. Peace on earth. I'm working on inner peace. I've been working on inner peace for so long. Sometimes it feels like it will never happen. It's one of those purposes that I fight for no matter what. I have faith that I can achieve peace and let go of the things that make me boil. Life's too short to be sitting around miserable.
  3. Goodbye anxiety and short tempers. Part of being a better me means that I'm working on where I went wrong the year before. I had a lot of anxiety and have lost my temper more times that I'm proud to admit. Those are things that I don't take pride in, but I work on them everyday. I have my faults like everyone else. I'll never be perfect, but I can be better. Tempers and anxiety doesn't belong in my life in 2020. Bye!
  4. Life is about quality not quantity.  I wand the best of the best in life. That means my circle should remail small and tight. That means more of my money will be spent on experiences and not just new clothes. I don't want and abundace of anything. I want a the best of everything. I want the good. I want the genuine. Everything else doesn't matter. Just happiness and love.
  5. Patience is virtue. I have a terrible habit of rushing things that could otherwise turn out better. I like instant gratification and that's where I go wrong. I am struggling between being a perfectionist and someone who is patient enough to make something as great as it can be.
While I continue to work on my purposes, I'll be enjoying the new year. 2019 was epic. 2020 has to somehow top that. I will not settle for less. Que venga lo que venga. Am I right?

What purposes do you wish to work on or continue working on?
