Well Well Well... Where do we even begin? We don't. 2015 was definitely a life changer. We both graduated from universities (with distinction if you must know), we both had a mid-twenties crisis #TheStruggleIsSoReal survived and came out on top (We're here aren't we? The answer is yes), we had some relationships and then we didn't #HeartbreakX20 (more like 200 but who counts #FuckMen #JustKidding, are we really?), we also learnt that even though food detox cleans your body, friends detox cleans your soul #GoodEnergy. So remember Friends detox is THE detox #ClinicallyProven #DoctorApproved. We had endless moments of joy, laughter and absolute craziness but most importantly, we rekindled our romance and started this shit. Oops we said shit. But it's the best shit you'll ever have.
So after this amazing year we can only go up and do even greater things, you know things that actually have a meaning (to someone) like Affixx #PowerToTheStudents. Here are a few of our New Year Resolutions (this time we're really gonna stick to it #delusional), we guess we're gonna find out this time next year when we're gonna be in Copacabana sipping Pinacolada #Grose #MaragaritaAllTheWay celebrating our exit, so all investors amongst you, bidding is now open #DillusionalTake2.
To make this new year resolution more easy on the eyes and basically look smarter, we chose our favourites quotes to describe our aspirations for the upcoming year.
So let's start #MindBlowing.
1. "Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life's not meant to be lived in one place."
Boy do we love to travel. Traveling changed our lives and made us the people we are today, opened our minds and expanded our horizons in every way possible. We actually met while being abroad and look where it brought us #HappyPlace. This year we plan to go to new countries and explore new places. Who said you can't mix business and pleasure. We can assure you that if you find the right way to do it, your year and life will get a whole new dimension #SoMuchBetter.
2. "Ever loved someone so much, you'll do anything for them? Yeah well make that someone yourself, and do whatever the fuck you want".
People are ungrateful. Harsh reality but true. You might not know it by now (you only got to read the first two weeks, if you even did) but we're all about self love and self praise. In the end of the day, you only have yourself and the only one you should really count on is you. It may sound super bitchy and even bitter but if you think about it, the only person who's walking in your shoes is you! So you better start focusing all your positive energy on loving yourself. This will create magic.
3. "The Universe sends us exactly what we are ready for at the exact time we need it in our lives".
#Destiny. Writing to you now didn't just happen accidentally. Us being here is nothing but a story of timing. The RIGHT timing. Kinda like when you meet someone for the first time after all the bad breakups and dissapointments and you realise why it didn't work out with all the rest. Well, that didn't happen romantically yet but definitely on the business side #LoveYou. The Rolling Stones said it best "You can't always get what you want, you get what you need". So hold on tight and have some faith because the universe knows what it's doing. At least we hope so. Univesre we believe in you.
4. "Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don't stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just... START".
There comes a moment in life when you just need to get off your ass and just do it. Yes Nike we are using your tag line. Sue Me #IAmMyLawyer. There's never a perfect time to start doing something you trully belive in. Sometimes, you may be the only person believing in the idea however, you are the only person stopping yourself from creating your reality. You are in charge of your destiny, believing in anything else is just dropping all your responsibility and there's nothing hot about that. If it's still in your mind, it is worth taking the risk. You may be the first beliver, but when Usher discovered Justin Bieber on Youtube in 2009 no one predicted the magnitude of the beliebers. Think about that, definitely makes you wonder.
5. "Never let sombody waste your time, twice".
We think this one is pretty self explainatory, unless he's hot and then you can do whatever you want. #NoJudgementHere we've all been through this but hopefully this year we'll know when to stop. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Got it now? Are we clear?
6. "People will always talk about you, especially when they envy you and the life you live. Let them. You affected their lives, they didn't affect yours".
Small minds discuss people while great minds (like ours obvs) discuss ideas. So don't let them hate us coz they ain't us. Let them be. Karma will take care of them for you.
7. "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody".
In the last year we discovered the power of spreading the love. Don't ever build yourself up by bringing someone else down. It doesn't say anything about that person but everything about you. Building up the people around you will only empower you; good energy attracts good energy (it's physics + JT had a whole song about it). This year we promise to stick to this promise and even more, stand up for the people who can't stick for themselves. Even though we bash people on this blog on a weekly basis, it's all with good sense of humor, mainly laughing at ourselves, treating them with nothing but respect in reality #MyLawyerMadeMeSayIt #IAmTheLawyer #YouFeelMeBro? #Hopefull.
8. "My only relationship goal is to be with someone who motivates me to become a better person and show me the potential I don't see in myself".
Honey I am fully aware of my potential but I am ready when you are. But seriously, why being in a relationship in the first place if it doesn't make you feel like the best version of yourself. Because let's face it, being single is pretty much awesome. So if you are giving this up, at least do it for a damn good reason. This year is all about attracting good and healthy relationships.
"My goal is to be filthy rich. Rich in adventure, in health, in knowledge,
in laughter, in family, and in love".
Have the best year you can possibly have, cheesy but sooo true.
The Dumb Fox tells you the true story of what it's really like to build a startup in today's world. We keep ourselves authentic throughout, highlighting the struggles, success and everything in between. What we write about is what we go through at the moment and not another success story told looking back. Because let's face it, that's just boring and we already know the end, so what's the point really?
