Let 2017 be your selfish year. The year you stop listening to the screaming insecurities in your head, the year you stop listening to the whispers of everyone else around you, and the year you stop trying to please everyone but yourself.

Let 2017 be the year you stop telling yourself you can’t do it. The year you stop telling yourself that you aren’t worth that job, or that boy, or that life.

Let 2017 be the year you decide that you are worthy.

Let it be 365 days of focusing on you. 365 days where every minute and hour can be spent turning off your negative thoughts, even when times get tough. Let it be the time where you can look at yourself in the mirror every damn day and appreciate your body for surviving, and for working. And it let it be the time in your life where you can look at yourself and say yes, ‘I am something to be seen and I am someone worth being looked at’.

Let 2017 be the year you stop being so afraid of shining your own light. Let it be the year you start listening to your gut instincts, instead of ignoring how you truly feel. Let 2017 be the year you start putting yourself first in line. And let it be the year you shut out the echoes of your past, telling you you aren’t good enough.

And let 2017be the year you become deaf to negativity.

Let 2017 be the year you do what you want. Let it be the year you drop everything and travel, let it be the year you move to a new city and start your life over, let it be the year you kiss girls and boys without any hesitation, let it be the year you start a new job with glowing confidence, let it be the year you tell those people to get lost when they point out your flaws, and let it be the year you tell the people who have always been there for you, that you adore them.

Let 2017 be the year you raise your middle finger high in the sky at everyone that calls youtrash.

Let 2017 be the year you wash away your regrets from years before. Let it be the year you finally can begin again, awaken your dead bones, and restart your heartbeat. Let it be the year you stop looking back, and start looking forward.

Let 2017 be the year you do things for yourself. Let it be the year you walk strongly and loudly towards your goals, and towards a better life. Let it be the year you stop your doubts from even entering your mind as you rise to new occasions and new challenges. And let it be the year you climb that mountain, without fear that you will fall.

Let 2017 be the year you make mistakes and learn from them. Let 2017 be the year you fail, but never ever stop trying. Let 2017 be the year you stop being so afraid of messing up, and let those mistakes become days of regrowth and rebirth. Let 2017 be the year you look at mistakes as new opportunities to succeed.

Let 2017 be the year you let go. The year you let go of self-hatred. The year you let go of that one person who won’t ever love you like you love them. Let it be the year you let go of your self-shame and body insecurities. Let it be the year you let go of broken promises from the past, and let go of those people who were never there for you.

Let 2017 be the year you learn how to love yourself. Let it be the year you can look yourself in the eye and see the beauty that everyone else sees in you. Let it be the year you treat yourself how you truly deserve to be treated.

And let it be the year you truly live, for yourself. Not anyone else. Just you.
