When I think of resolutions, I never really take them seriously as I don't make them come true. It's sad but if you think about it, who really does follow through the whole year with a golden star on their forehead? If you genuinely follow through every resolution you promised yourself you would do, please let me know and tell me how it's done cause I really need to get through mine!!
We have these fantasies of getting every single one of our objectives achieved as if there wasn't a whole fucking lifetime to accomplish it it!... “ This year I am going to make this much money, this year I am going to have the body of my dreams, and this year I am going to travel for four months in a row and live unforgettable experiences...” - says everybody . Don't get me wrong, I know our intentions are strong and true but the fact is that things along our life change. Plans constantly change and that's ok. Life doesn't always work our way even if you've planed your whole life since 3rd grade. In fact, life has a silly way of telling us “ Ha HA just kidding!!!” right when you think you had it all!
Don't get me wrong, I am sure that there are people who can achieve everything they set their mind into and I am sincerely happy about those aliens but today I am talking about this subject on behalf of my own personal experience...
So... Last year's resolution was a whole list of unbelievable things that I, in my mind, would execute... I think I am pretty sure that I haven't achieved a single one, none, ZERO! It still makes me laugh though when I think about it.. But in the end, I always tell myself that all is ok because sometimes those mindsets that you put yourself through aren't suppose to happen to you.
This year's resolution was to get my shit together and make my brand expand internationally, receiving a tremendous amount of amazing feedback and new opportunities around the world. Basically making it big time in all terms of success!
Well... I know it's only the begging of 2018 but I've already been robed twice, my team and I are barely floating over water, and I am having an enormous amount of trouble finding professional people to work with hence, produce my collection. Oh and i'm not going to the gym because my work is sucking the life out of me. It isn't at all what I have planed! This is why my one and only resolution now-a-days is to at least be true to myself and to be super mega real in life. Those are the two things I tend to really stick onto or at least try to...(cause it ain't always easy)!
However, with patients and the will to move forward, I have learn to let myself go and let the rest do its magic. It is only a matter of having the enough courage to let go of things that you can't control. I know it is a tough task to do and it may even be harder than achieving goals in life but it is a risk worth trying. If you can't control the life you planed then let go to make room for different plans.
I like to think that the universe has many different plans installed for me, it soothes me and opens my eyes to a whole new perspective that is, in the end, a way better plan then I have ever “planed” my life to be.
“ Each day is born with a sunrise and ends with a sunset, the same way we open our eyes to see the light, and close them to hear the dark. You have no control over how your story begins or ends. But by now, you should know that all things have an ending. Every spark returns to darkness. Every sound returns to silent. And every flower returns to sleep with the earth. The journey of the sun and moon is predictable. But yours is your ultimate ART.” - Suzy Kassem
