I had a long discussion with one of my childhood friends about New Year’s resolutions, and we came to one conclusion. 2016 is going to be the year of #OwnIt. It sounds simple, but it’s honestly about self-respect. Make decisions that YOU feel comfortable with, that YOU think are important and that YOU are passionate about. If other people judge you or disagree with you, walk away and remember that it’s YOUR life. Own it. Own the mistakes, mishaps and failures. But also own the triumphs, the compliments and your accomplishments. Own how serious or how superficial you want to live your life. Own it like the queen Blair Waldorf would.
Own being single.
Own your feelings.
Or own the fact that you’re ignoring them.
Own the nights when you have a lot of fun.
Own your drive.
Own it when you’re being a birthday princess.
Own it when you’re losing.
Own your… quirks.
Own it when you’re right.
And own it when you’re wrong.
Own your cheat days. Or weeks.
Own your drunk text messages instead of regretting them.
Own your destiny.
Own your self-worth.
Own the decision to wear leggings as pants.
Own your bad days.
Own being ridiculous.
Own being a badass.
And most importantly, own who you are.
