Based in louisville, kentucky, "hi my name is amos", is a blog and youtube channel about mental health, body image, and managing life. 

so this is the new year

2017 made my head spin, in both good and not so good ways. 

i'm heading into 2018 with new intentions. the last couple of years, i have learned a lot of life lessons. i spent the last week on vacation from my full-time job and spent time mapping out what i want 2018 and the future to look like.  it's all a process and i'm trusting it. how can i make 2018 better than 2017?

this is the question i try to answer while planning out my goals for the year. while i generally don't believe in resolutions, goal setting is another thing. my year isn't a failure if i keep working towards those goals when 2018 is up, as long as i keep working. 

i have goals divided into three categories; health, life, and career. 

health: i want to get to a place where i'm not making excuses for my body anymore. i'm going to stop comparing my story to someone else's. i'm not going to modify so i can keep up with everyone else. i don't need to stay with the pack, i need to be faster than my last time. it's time to be the best me. i want to improve my sleep, my nutrition, fitting every piece of that puzzle together. 

life: basically, i'm not going to devote all spare time to my career. i've scheduled out my week to work in time for me. i brought my guitars upstairs, planned art projects, etc etc etc. those are the things that typically fall by the wayside for me, in order to accommodate work. you know what they say about all work and no play?

career: in 2015, i was launched into my dream field and i'm having the time of my life. it has it's hang-ups and disappointments, of course. nothing is rainbows and sunshine here. i'm learning a lot and i'm learning the path in which i want to grow. i never thought i'd be where i am today and i'm looking forward to what i could do in the future. i get to work with some awesome people, learning more than i could imagine, and my career brings me joy. 

2018 is going to be a year of working, pursuing, and running after things, hard. 

here's to another year on the planet. crushing goals and chasing dreams.
