Confession: Today I decided on a New Year resolution that I feel fairly comfortable with. I wasn't planning to have any this year, but then my therapist suggested that I make it my goal to stop being hard on myself. With it being a strong source of anxiety for me, I think it might be worth pursuing this new line of thought and making it my primary focus for 2019.
Even though I wasn't quite able to reach my weight-loss goal, I did lose a substantial amount of weight (58 pounds) and I'm about 15 pounds away from getting out of obesity. And since I've already developed the habit of working out every day, and I won't have that much more weight to lose before I'm in a semi-comfortable range, I think I can leave this as a secondary focus.
I'm gonna aim to be a little more outgoing this year too. So far the only thing I've really done in college is go to class and get good grades. I did have some interaction with one of my coding professors and came up with a few ideas on how to improve my employability, but I've yet to actually do anything to get me in the right direction. That definitely needs to change if I want to stand out a little more to potential employers.
Overall, 2018 was a phenomenal year for me. It was probably the greatest period of growth I've experienced in my whole life, and I'm excited to see how things turn out for me this year.
