Making 2017 Your Year

By Melanie Southern 

    When the New Year rolls around the new saying “New year, New me” comes up but eventually falls short. However, what if this year is the year all that doubt and inability changes. Making 2017 your year can help bring a new way of how you live your life. Whether it involves making your weight goal, changing your love life, or overall making yourself happy can make 2017 one of the best years you could possibly experience. 2017 can be the year of greatness; all you have to do is try and succeed.

 With the way 2017 has started it can seem hard to find your own happiness in the world’s chaos. However, now more than ever is the perfect time to make yourself happy and to set your lifetime goals. Use the world’s chaos as a wake-up call that you have one life to live and that you should live it to the absolute fullest. Start by making the small life choices that seem so small at the time, but will have a bigger impact further down the line. Take the steps that you’ve been afraid to take, that can lead you to a whole new life journey. Taking these steps can lead you down the path of happiness that you’ve proclaimed you would do but never got the chance to. We can either choose to live a life of proclaiming happiness but never get the chance to experience, or we actually go out and do it. Forget those who may judge you or shame your decisions, because their impact will not change the person you are or who you strive to be. Make the change in 2017, and be the person you have always wanted to be.
