why 2019 will be my most freeing year yet
New year, new you? Well in my case, new year, old me! While a lot has changed in my life (moved into our new home waaaay out in the 'burbs and had our baby boy) but I'm still the same Brittany. In fact, I have become more like the old Brittany you might have known in high school or college. A #YOLO, carefree, no filter kinda Brittany.
This year I have made the decision to let go of any fears or insecurities I've had in the past and just go for it. It wasn't that long ago when I was at my 9-5 doing whatever it would take to "make it" and work for myself. I didn't care what people thought; I had one goal, one mission and nothing was going to stop me. It wasn't until I "made it" and started second guessing everything. Well, farewell to that Brittany, she is gone.
2019 is the year of doing, the year of living, the year of not giving an F. lol. So what does that mean exactly?
blog more. I will make no promises, no plans, no schedule. I love to write...correction: I love to write how I talk IRL. Do I proof read every post? No, but that's OK with me. I love to share content and I love to connect with you guys through blogging.
just start that damn YouTube channel. Guys, I have literally wanted to start a YT channel since 2008. That's a loooonnngggg ass time to not start something you've been wanting to do. And why? Honestly, because I was scared. I was scared to be judged, I was scared of people writing mean comments, I wanted to lose more weight....whatever. I could give 100 excuses but I don't care about any of that anymore...so here we go! Make sure to subscribe and I'll love ya forever!
say "whatever" to the mommy shamers. One of the reasons I didn't want to share anything about Banks was because moms can be soooooo dammmnnn judgey! You'll hear everyone say it but I never really understood until I had a baby but ALL BABIES ARE DIFFERENT. What works for me may or may not work for you but I would have never made it through these months without my posse of moms (aka all my friends and family). The advice and suggestions (when asked) have been a life saver. So yes, I will share baby/mommy content but only to hope to help another fellow mom out there too, clearly not because I know it all because I def don't!
take risks on instagram. That kinda sounds weird saying out loud but most people just play it safe. They think about what the audience wants to see, what will get the most likes or comments and post that. I am totally guilty of that. But this year I've decided to try new things (aka more selfies because...well why the hell not?!). I want to share more of my real life not images that look nice or fit with my theme. I am literally laughing out loud just typing that because I can't believe I ever did that before LOL!
Basically at the end of this year, I want to look back and say "wow, I did everything I wanted to do. I tried everything I was too scared to before. I stepped outside my comfort zone and maybe it worked maybe it didn't but at least I tried. This year I was not scared to fail. I was not scared to look dumb. I just did what I wanted to do!"
So whose with me?! Let's take more risks and pave our way in 2019!
