“New Year, New Me” seems to be everyone’s New Year’s Resolution.
Why is everyone trying to be a new person?
And if anything, by saying you’re going to be new, you really are setting yourself up for failure.
People will automatically say, “You’re gonna be the same person this year and next.”
However, it is never to late to improve yourself.
I know some people are going, “But isn’t that becoming a new person?” No.
Becoming a “new me” implies that you are going to throw away the “old me”.
I am clearly talking about something more profound and productive.
Think about how your year has gone and ask yourself, “Do I need to become a new me?”
The answer is most likely no. You’re fine just the way you are…sort of.
Everyone can make improvements in their life, which makes you a better version of yourself.
You still keep the “old me” inside of you, but you make necessary changes for the better.
If you feel like you have a weight problem, get active and eat healthy, NOT DIET.
Want a new look? Try a couple new looks, NOT BUY A NEW WARDROBE.
Having money issues? Make a budget and save, NOT DEPRIVE YOURSELF OF EVERYTHING.
Not where you want to be? Set goals with time frames and actually follow them, DON’T SULK.
Of course, when you are working on improving your life, people will tend to start acting funny.
Some friends will leave you for reasons that are clearly ridiculous.
Lovers may leave because they feel you are letting go.
But at the end of the day, YOUR HAPPINESS is what’s important.
I do these posts of either spoken word or poems not just to fill space in between pictures.
I do this for myself, in order to reflect on my own problems.
I do this for someone who may be going through what I am and need someone to relate to.
I do this because it’s my life, and I can do as I damn well please.
I am working on my own self improvement.
People will say I am acting, “brand new”.
I’m not acting brand new at all though.
I am merely going into 2012 as an “improved me.”

About the outfit: SORRY FOR THE BLURRY PHOTO! Yet another casual day for me. I’ve been so lazy with my style since I’ve been on Winter Break. I will say that I have something exciting to share with you guys in 2012. I will actually be doing a YouTube video for it, so stay tuned for when it happens :) Back to the outfit though. I really love my Pumas. They are a little scuffed cause when I wear shoes, I actually wear them. I love these because of the color palette and how they make my big ass feet look smaller lol. Of course they are men’s sneakers, because I just don’t like a lot of women’s ones. I had to take Amerie to the doctor this morning so i added a blazer to add a little business to the look. I am rocking this new pin I got for Christmas and it’s not a swastika, so I hope no one gets offended by the pin. This outfit actually has hints of what my 2012 surprise is, but I’ll shut up before I give it away.
So I have this amazing giveaway called…
