17 Things I Will NOT Do In 2017

It's time I speak, think and act for myself, and not live up to people's expectations. I want to be happy and fearless!

17 Things I Will NOT Do In 2017
The Inspiration Initiative

2016 was a good year for me, but towards the end, it made a turn for the worse. I was extremely grateful for everything I accomplished throughout the year even when times got rough. It was definitely a year where I made some self-discoveries, learned some hard lessons, and realized "adulting" isn't easy. I look forward to what 2017 has in store for me, and hopefully if I go by my "Not-To-Do" list, I will have another good-ish year (but a little bit better than 2016).

This year I will (at least try) not:

1. Settle for less

2. Dwell on past relationships

3. Lower my standards and expectations

4. Compromise my set morals and values

5. Let someone ruin my happiness

6. Take an 8 am class

7. Tell myself that "crying is weak" so that I don't cry or look emotional

8. Stay around negative people/vibes

9. Go back to the people who continuously hurt me for years

10. Do things for people who don't do shit for me

11. Continue to be so naive and too trustworthy

12. Stay quiet when I have something to say

13. Keep my feelings bottled up inside until I get depressed

14. Cry myself to sleep after a bad day

15. Change who I am

16. Let people take advantage of me/use me

17. Stay mad at those who made me feel weak and miserable

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
