2013: Dedication

Last year I chose Simplify as my word for 2012.  I feel like I did actually simplify my life. I cut out a lot of the stresses and people that caused the most drama.  I decluttered a lot, I did things I love, etc.  

When I sat down to figure out what word I wanted to choose for 2013, the first thing that came to mind was “change”.  I want change.  I want something new-something different than I’ve been experiencing.  Then it dawned on my why things weren’t changing-me.  I haven’t been dedicated to myself enough to make change happen.  This game will be played no longer!  This year I am dedicated to myself-so the word I choose is “Dedication.”

My So-Called Chaos Dedication

I don’t want to set resolutions or goals for the new year-because that leaves it open to failure and if I am dedicated to myself I wont fail. I can’t fail again.  I am desperate for change-for success.  The cycle must be broken.

This Year I Promise Myself
→I will remain dedicated to myself, and not give up on me.←
→I will remember that I deserve MORE than I’ve allowed myself to want.←
→I will feed by body good things and exercise-I am dedicated to being healthy.←
→I will put myself out there and actually try to let myself be loved.←
→I will not date guys who don’t want the same things I do.←
→I will stop selling myself short.←
→I will break the cycle.←

    That's a great word for the year! You can do it! I think if I had to pick a word for this year it would be discover…cause all the resolutions I have really have to do with discovering myself again…at least when you break them down.

    I love the "I define my own perception" saying. It goes well with dedication. I hope you accomplish the changes you want with dedication and resolve.
