Life is about challenging yourself to be better.

A better person. A better friend. To treat yourself, and others, better.

Being better doesn’t mean being skinny or strong. It’s about taking steps every single day to be a better person than you were the day before. This could include saying something kind to yourself, to your neighbor, or your significant other. This could be deciding to become healthier, whatever that means to you. It could be a walk around the block. It could be adding strength. Or maybe just adding a vegetable to your meals.

I am working on myself in 2017. I want to be stronger and am getting back into weight lifting. I want to stress less so I am working on things to reduce stress. I want to show kindness and love to others. I want to be more creative with my clothes and boost my confidence, which has taken a dive the last few years.

I want to help others. I believe we are here to better ourselves and help others. What do you want to do with your 2017?

Instead of tearing each other down, let’s build a community of support.
