2018 was shifting from MORE MORE MORE and BETTER BETTER BETTER to let’s stay still and be present and go deeper.
I deleted my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter profiles. I think social media presents some pretty f*cked-up metrics for living life and literally tries to addict you to them, and I’m much happier focusing on what’s actually in front of me (and having oodles of time to read.)
I’m grateful for all the sh*t I messed up in 2018 because it taught me a lot of great things, and I can’t wait to mess up some stuff in 2019, too!
Don’t get me wrong, 2018 was a year for the record books. I grew so much, I met so many amazing people, I got to travel the world, I started (and ended) so many crazy things.
One of the best things I did was Turn Pro as a writer: I started taking it seriously.
Though I’ve dreamed of doing it since I was, IDK, 18?, I’ve finally gotten around to starting Major Scary Project, writing my first novel under my own name.
In 2019, I’m looking forward to not looking at quadrants, or how my life looks filtered and staged on Instagram, or a vision board, to decide what it’s missing.
Instead, my only meaningful goal: To ask myself continuously, What do I already have, and how wonderful is that?
