It’s 2017, You Haven’t Done A Thing Yet

It’s 2017 and you haven’t done a thing yet. What are you waiting on? A lot of people find themselves a couple of days into the new year and you’re still stuck in your previous ways. Lets try to pinpoint what’s exactly holding you  back and make a move to get you in the right direction:

  1. You’re not sure what changes you really want to make.
    • If you don’t know where you want to go, how will you get there? Take a moment to decide if you really want to make real life changes, or if your just following the phrase, ” New Year New Me.”
    • If you don’t actually have a goal, you will never achieve it. Figure it out first, then decide on your steps to success. happygirl2017
  2. You’re uninspired.
    • Take a small vacation, clear your mind.
    • How can you make a change when your vision is blurry? You may need a quick change of scenery to get those creative juices flowing.
    • Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to be open and look.
  3. You’re afraid.
    • It’s ok to be afraid of change.
    • Take a deep breath and actually understand how better your life will be once you take that first step to fulfilling your life goals. Yes, it may make you uncomfortable, but growth can not occur without hard work and sacrifice.
    • Sometimes being afraid is the fuel you need to face your fears and starting moving towards your new life.
  4. You don’t have a stong support system.
    • It’s ok to not have any support from family or friends, its your dream.
    • You have to dig deep with in yourself and support your own changes in life.
    • Gather the strength you used to come up with the changes and believe you are enough to make sure you have control over your own life and goals. It will be happynewyear2017achieved if you work hard and believe.
  5. You have set an unrealistic goal for yourself.
    • Come down a notch if  you have to with your changes, nothing happens over night.
    • You want to make sure if the goal is big, you  have little goals as well to paint the big picture in the end.
    • I want you to be human and feel accomplished when you complete a task, so take it a little easy on yourself, you’ll get there.

The Business Of Fortune

The Business Of Fortune

fortunecookieOne random Tuesday evening, my cousin and I stopped for Thai/Chinese. The food was

pretty good actually, but as always to my surprise, along with the check came fortune

cookies. That same apprehensive, yet daunting feeling came over me. This feeling always

presents the same question: “will this fortune actually make sense?” After my cousin

cracked open her cookie and read her fortune to herself, I opened and read mine. It

read: “It is time to finish some unfinished business.” “Thank GOD I didn’t get one of those

stupid ‘treat the present like a gift’ type fortunes!” I thought. Now, as customary with any

message of fait brought to you; it’s arbitrary in that you can interpret and connect it with

anything you want. So, safe to say, this fortune made the most sense in connection with my

ex and how over him I wasn’t. I started…but I didn’t complete the process.

My uncle, who was also at the table opened up his own fortune cookie only to find that his

was empty. Outraged, we called upon our waiter to bring him another. Instead of just one,

our waiter gave us many and placed them in a bag along with our leftovers.

It wasn’t until much later, somewhere around 2 a.m., that I discovered the new set of

fortunes, I mean cookies. While my Pad Thai was reheating in the microwave, I cracked

open a new cookie. Now, I have a strange way of thinking: if you open one fortune cookie,

that’s the fortune you have to keep. The second one doesn’t count. That is, unless you’re me

this particular night and you get the exact same fortune twice. Yes, my eyes scanned “It is

time to finish some unfinished business,” once more. I shrieked, “woah!” But, then I started

to think, “why on earth would I get this fortune twice? I got the hint! I’m going to reach out

to him!”

I didn’t really hit me until two days later –after endless mock speeches and looking

back in my mental archives of past speeches to him– that I was indeed repeating myself

and any hope of actually getting through to him would have required rebirth in another

world. I would have to literally not be myself at all. “WE ARE JUST NOT SUPPOSED TO BE;


“So,” I thought. “It’s been three years since we first broke up, and 10 months since our

second break up, and yet I’m still trying to convince him of my undying affection…what’s

wrong here?” Then, after I took Beyoncé’s “Why don’t you love me” off repeat, I realized

that I, being a person of sound mind must have, at some point, been in the process of

getting over him. Perhaps I got two of the same fortune for each time we broke-up and

abandoned my efforts of moving-on go to try and bring him back into my world. And this

was either a reiteration that we needed to have yet another talk to rekindle the real, end-
all be-all truth that we could make it work, or the two fortunes were a double negative. The

unfinished business wasn’t starting again, but ending the end.

In life we are constantly confronted with the same situation because we haven’t done the

one thing we never though we needed to. In my case, I collectively viewed our moments of

reconnection as a sign of inseparability. When, in fact, it was sign that I should be able to

see him and not see yesterday. Business finished. Lights out.
