So embarrassing how long it has been since my last post. A new years resolution that I just developed is to get to this more. However, sometimes life has other plans. While for many, even me it seemed for a long time, this means something negative, it can also be very positive. Moving, promotions, love, relationships, happiness. All of these words effect people in many different ways. Depending on where you are in your life, they can be very anxiety inducing as well as scary to think about. However, maybe moving can be beyond physical and it is moving on. Moving on from things not meant for you, on to things that need your attention. Maybe your life is moving in the right direction. A promotion I think is pretty much always a good thing, but I have recently learned where a negative reaction to a promotion could come from, maybe your hours are longer, you have to work harder than the hardest you worked before which makes you panic. Or you can just look at the better money, maybe even the longer hours are better hours, and maybe you just look the work in the face and Barney Stinson the shit out of it….Challenge Accepted. Make your legacy legen….wait for it…..dary!
Here are the big ones that are scary to everyone in some way. Love, relationships, and happiness. Some people cringe at the thought of these, others are continuously searching for them, and some have already found them and feel content with where they are. It is now 2017 and we can all have a ‘fresh start’ right? Well no, the turn of the year does not erase everything that you experienced the year before nor does it mean that you are about to have the best time of your life. However, you can use it as a mind set. Stop looking for these, but create them. Do not be afraid of them, but embrace them. This is the time (because I am telling you it is and want you to decide that it is) for you to do what is best for you! If that means going to school do it! If that means working on self care, do it! No matter what that means for you go out today and do it. You just need to start it doesn’t have to be a done in a day project. Forget losing weight, finding a girl/boy friend, or winning some prize or promotion as resolutions this year. Make a vision board and put on it only what you want to spend your time on. Be diligent with this and be sure to hang the board somewhere that you will see it everyday!
Now you read this long winded post about seizing the day, why is this different, why does it matter it is the same thing being said everywhere else. THAT IS WHY IT MATTERS! You have so many people begging you to just focus on yourself, maybe they are on to something. Maybe when you start focusing on yourself everything else just kind of falls into place without you even needing to notice. Maybe that is the magic.
Happy New Year! Use it wisely.
