I know, I know, it’s been a little quiet around here and I am not going to bore you with the usual reasons. It’s a new year and honestly I am not going to promise to be better because life happens and sometimes I just don’t feel like writing but I am going to be treating the blog more like an online journal rather than a place of perfection because that holds me back too much.
2018 was an incredible year of growth for me, I would even go as far as to say it was one of my favourite years for this reason alone. I am not entirely sure how I managed to do it but I trained myself to see and feel things differently. I fell completely in love with myself, sometimes I fell out of love with myself too, but I managed to get back up and give myself a hug and carry on. I learnt so, so many things, too many to even think of right now but I shared some of them with you along the way on the blog or on Instagram.
2019 is going to be a big one, no doubt. I have more goals, more intentions, I am turning 30 and I feel more powerful than ever. I heard TwentyMineTeen on TV and had to steal it because I am owning this year – the good and the bad. I am owning turning 30, I am owning the wrinkles I see forming around my eyes. I am owning all my flaws and mistakes. All of it, I am accepting it all.
And if you want to know how I plan on doing that, I am going to share it.
Get in tune with yourself. I have noticed what a difference this has made for me. I am constantly evaluating how I am feeling and making changes if I need to. It has done the world of good for my anxiety as well as my overall happiness.
I have my big goals for the year and I have smaller goals. The smaller goals can even be daily ones so that you have instant gratification. The sense of achievement when crossing something off the list gives you a boost of pride and even confidence.
“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower”. Take a look at your environment, from friends to your relationship and everything in between and make the necessary changes that will affect your happiness positively. Get rid of toxic people and toxic thoughts.
Don’t be afraid to say what you want. Say it to yourself, to the universe and even your loved ones. Put it out there, make it known and then work towards it.
It’s 2019, it’s time to love the shit out of yourself and be unapologetic about it. You’re allowed to love yourself. You’re allowed to be exactly who you are. Don’t hold back, don’t hide, don’t doubt. Just say to yourself every morning, this is me and I am going to accept and love me.
Are you going to own 2019 with me?
