NYPL Resolutions

Although February is gone and January feels like a world away I still find myself reflecting on my wants and wishes in terms of personal growth. Therefore, I do not think it is too late to share a few of my new years resolutions.


So far this year has been incredible; I have inched outside of my comfort zone, developed new friendships and have set bigger goals for life, love and career. Still, I know there is more I need to work on. When I started  thinking about this post and the things that would constitute and define my resolutions I found my list riddled with clichés. Meet new people, try new things, dream bigger, work smarter, et al. While I plan on working very hard to make each decision a reality I know none will come to fruition if I continue to ignore the promise resting at the core of every plan. A promise to be kinder to myself. To accept that failure and success are two sides of the same coin, each one defining the other but not myself.

I used to feel like I was my failure; that every mishap or misstep and fear defined me and my future. This eventually led to crippling anxiety and a dangerous inner voice telling me I would not amount to anything. In truth, you can not fully measure or guarantee your success but you can elucidate the terms. One thing that is helping me understand my anxiety and fears is something I am doing right now…talking about them. I find that discussing the things that pause your passions is an important first step to diminishing them. So go out, go forth and make your voice heard, even if it’s small and even if the person who needs to hear it the most is yourself.
