I plan to make 2017 one of my best years ever! I am facing nothing but opportunities and possibilities for a bigger better future and I need to use that! I have learnt so much in the past year about what it takes to make dreams a reality and I am sorry to say it’s through hard work! I know right.. I was really hoping I didn’t have to get dressed for this.
To go from being someone who sits back and watches life pass by to taking the bull by the horns and seeking out true happiness is not an easy thing! I know, I am that person! But I don’t want to be anymore. So before we get rolling into this new year, here are a few things that I have found to make a huge difference in my level of happiness.
Ditch the Blame
To really make a change for the better in your life you have to change the way you look at your problems. I believe the #1 thing standing in our way today is our tendency to blame! Stop it! Stop blaming other people for how you feel about You! You should love you despite what the media and society and fashion industry has to say. YOU should love you for everything that is good about yourself.
If you think badly about yourself, who are we to argue, you know your self best.
Stop saying I’m sorry for everything. We should not ever apologize for who we are and especially not for how we look. We are constantly worrying about what others are going to think about us and we apologize when we act like ourselves. Instead of apologizing for not looking your best one day – tell everyone you’re going for a more natural look and smile. It was none of their business anyways.
Hold your head high and smile that beautiful smile of yours! Be confident and proud of who you are. Don’t focus so much on the opinion of others as you do your opinion of yourself. When you know you are amazing, and fun, and smart and witty, it is much easier for others to believe it as well.
Realize you have the power to change
You are very rarely completely stuck with everything that fate rolled out for you. You have the power to change your life to be what you want it to be, but you have to take the leap and start working for it. It’s scary and intimidating but when you reach your goals you will realize that all the panic was for nothing. So buy that gym pass or sign up for that class and make an investment in yourself!
Make a plan
And don’t let anyone stand in your way! Write this plan down and make the whole family aware that this is what you are doing and that you can not be stopped. Break down this goal and make it actionable. Take time to focus on it every day until you reach it. Seek help, don’t be afraid to ask a professional, it’s what they’re there for!
