Last year was a train wreck of emotions

I found myself adopting unhealthy habits

Staying up late, not working out, cutting people off

I needed space to explore myself

But in the process I lost parts of who I was:

Motivated, dedicated, disciplined

Turned into: lazy, forgetful, distracted

I don’t want to be that person

I want to wake up in the morning full of happiness

I want to appreciate the 24 hours I have ahead of me

I want to create to my heart's desire

I want to be satisfied with who I am becoming

My wants need to become my reality,

And the only one who has control of that is me.

So stop saying you’re going to do something,

And just do it.

No excuses, no apologies, no regrets.
