Looking ahead to the coming year of 2017 I have a long list of things to accomplish. However, my intense drive to check every item off my bucket list is going to make it difficult for 2017 to be what I really want it to be: stress free. This year I need to really learn to go with the flow and let things go. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still fight for things (probably everything, as usual) but I won’t get myself worked up over absolutely nothing. This year has every reason to be stress free and lack any major milestones. 2017 should be just another year, which is exactly what I need right now; a year to figure things out, to let things fall into place. I know that I’ll get everything I need to done whether or not I stress and obsess over it, so, starting this winter (aka right now) and continuing throughout all of 2017, I’m going to commit myself to enjoying life free of stress or self-induced negativity.
