Resolutions and Rantings

1/08/2012 The Blue Stocking 3 Comments

Now is the season of resolutions and the nerdy quote lover within begs me to pick a phrase that typifies the focus for my new year.

As always Jane was the perfect go to.

"I will be calm. I will be mistress of myself" - Sense and Sensibility

I love this idea of being calm. I want to go through life unruffled. I no longer want to be the silly girl hiding in the library because some guy had the audacity to like someone as crazy as me. I no longer want to be the frightened girl who panics at the thought of not get married….or getting married gulp.

I want to be serene, composed, and at peace.

I swear I was not always this foolish. For most of my life the dating world was a distance and hilarious land, one that I visited on occasion, but left before dating could consume my life. And now BYU has me in a tizzy.

So I refuse to give into the madness. Whether I date or not, I will be calm. I will be happy. I will enjoy life and fully value the wonderful people I’m meeting through my various escapades.

Now I ask you to join me. This year will be grand because we say so. It will not be ruled by some outside source {perhaps dating...} that we look to to validate our lives.

We will be mistresses {and misters} of ourselves and our own happiness.

-The Blue Stocking

P.S Please don't use this post against me when my crazy starts acting up. I fully intend on trying to keep it under control this year, but it's mighty powerful...

No worries, I'm pretty sure we all give into crazy every once in a while.

This was totally my resolution this year, I'm glad I'm not the only one who needed to do it. Good luck!
