It’s a clean slate! It’s a new beginning. It’s time to look ahead, make some plans, set some goals, get rid of the negative energy in your life and replace it with positive vibes and thoughts for a wonderful future. Whether you had a great year, or a year you wish you could forget there’s always something to look forward to.
As my last post explained, we’ve had quite the year. I won’t dive into it again, but all of what we experience in life leads you somewhere. Sometimes you are miserable wondering how you are going to get out of the situation you are in. Sometimes those periods of pain and misery lead you to revelations of what a better life looks like. It can help you set expectations and goals for your future. If you’ve been suffering, this is the time to look ahead and figure out what it is you need to do to change your future. You can change your story! You don’t have to live the same ol’ life you’ve been living. You can change you! You might not be able to immediately change your situation. You may have to take baby steps in the direction you want to go, but when you look back you will see your progress.
If you are reading this, I wish you a happy, healthy, vivacious, adventurous and free-spirited new year! Go out there and find your adventure, explore a new career option, move to a place you’ve always wanted to live. Prioritize your to-do list, feel free to say no if you can’t commit to something. It’s okay to change your mind. It’s okay to step into a situation, evaluate it and say “nah, this isn’t for me” and change directions. So many people think they have to stick with the direction their life is going because they can’t change their mind. You can change your mind. You can say I’m done with this year, this day, this month, instead I want to pursue this “other” thing. It’s your life, only you can live it. Will you possibly disappoint some people with your decision? Oh yeah, it’s possible. Will they get over it? They will if they value you in their life. If they don’t value you, good riddance. Like I said, get rid of that negative energy and keep those positive thinking happy people in your life. People who can see happiness in their situations are keepers. They know there is always something to feel blessed about.
While you have no idea what is ahead for you this year, only you can decide how you will react to it. We can’t always decide our fate on things, but we can be proactive and we can decide what we will let affect us. This is still one of my all-time favorite quotes: “Life is only 10 percent what happens to you. 90 percent of it, is how you react to it.” I love this quote because it calms me down immediately when I’m worked up. I realize that the situation may need some further thought or that there’s a lesson in it, or that I’m being stupid. Sometimes you have to stop yourself in those moments and ask if you are handling it in the best way. Regardless its never too late to change your perspective or change your situation.
Happy New Year!
May 2018 be your best year yet!
