I'm currently sitting here on New Years Eve, just wondering what this next year is going to bring. It's always quite scary to think that you have lived for another 365 days, and you are another year older and wiser. So much is going to happen in this next year already; without even thinking about the surprises and the unknown occasions I have yet to discover. I will turn 15 in March; I will complete my mock exams, I will do...
Sometimes, that is the question. To figure out what to do. There are so many things that I, along with countless amount of other people, wish to do with their life; but when it comes to achieving it we draw to a halt.
There is a pressure to always achieve your new year's resolutions; because that is human nature. To dominate and see ourselves as successes is all part of our life cycle - and there is no way of denying that. As a human race, we have conquered so many obstacles that stand in our way, and we are proud of those and continue to celebrate for years to come.
However. nobody seems to remember or celebrate the losses. Human nature has led us to believe that losing is a sign of weakness, a reminder that you are unworthy. When coming to make new year's resolutions, people tend to choose easy ones they know they have a capability of achieving.
I want people to choose things that are challenging them. I want people to choose things that others think they won't succeed on; and they actually do, because in my eyes that is the real definition of success. Everybody thought Charles Darwin was a joke - he wasn't. Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry, Tom Cruise were all put down through their childhood due to their ambition - and look where they are now.
I don't really know where I am going with this post - it is just a random little thought moment I have going on right now. I guess what I am trying to say is don't lessen your ambition to seem achievable, because if you believe you can, you can do anything. Set yourself goals that you can achieve within your life, the reward will be worth it.
All the best for the new year, Paige x
