My New Year resolution – Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

I whine a lot. Too much. I whine about being frustrated when things aren’t going how I think they should go. I whine about not going to school, not having a job that actually matters to the world, feeling like I don’t have control over the direction of my life..and I am so tired of my whining. So, my resolution for the new year is to stop feeling sorry for myself.

2012 will be one of organization, accomplishment, advancement, and optimism. 2011 was a really hard year. I have no idea of knowing if 2012 will be any easier, but I need to make a better conscious effort to be positive, more relaxed, in control, and make the best of situations.
