Nappily Ever After's first post of 2013!!!! I hope everyone had a great time bringing in the New Year with friends & family! This New Years Eve I took a trip down to NYC with some friends of mine to watch the ball drop in Times Square. We had a lot of tribulations but I really enjoyed myself with the girls. Such a great experience.
2013 is a year of growth for me. Lord willing, in hopes that massive hair growth will occur!!!! Lol but not only that, I'm talking growth as an individual. In 2012 (& many other years preceding), I blamed a lot of my misfortunes and disappointments on others. I used tons of excuses for why things weren't going in my favor because someone didn't give me the opportunity or someone wasn't thinking of me in certain situations. In that circumstance, I've got to learn to take it. All my life I've always been timid, so I would let things get by me or let others walk all over me. I'll be 20 next month, give or take damn near 30, and I need to get it together. Okay, I'll forego the "New Year, New Me" BS but this year I will make it my mission to be proactive, extremely outgoing, and righteous. A lot of the time, I feel like I find myself waiting for a butler to appear in front me but I need to realize no one is ever going to hand me anything on a silver platter. Everyone who is successful in whatever they do got there by not only working hard but becoming self-oriented (in a non-selfish way of course). Sometimes people need to be their own biggest motivator and neglect those who are trying to hold them back. YOU ARE YOUR BIGGEST COMPETITION. After all, I am the only one who will determine my success. I refuse to be defined by others.
Thanks for reading, best of luck with any resolutions you may have. Happy New Year!
