i’m ready for change

Hi friends, how are you doing? Before I start I wanted to let you know that I’ve written, deleted and rewritten a draft of this post a number of times because I wasn’t sure of the right words to say. I feel a little bit under pressure because it’s literally the last day of the year and somewhere in my mind I feel like I have to end it with a bang. Like I have to write the most amazing blog post I have ever shared on here so that it can garner the most attention/engagement. I had to pause and wait for a moment to remind myself that although tomorrow is January 1st, it doesn’t change anything and my blog will still be the same. I will maintain the same rhythm I have been going with for the past five months and hopefully by the time this is published, my mind and heart will be set free. I thought if I wrote down how I was truly feeling it would alleviate me of the pressure and I can get to my main points (which it has).

New year. New me.

I know you must be tired of hearing that line every single time before a new year starts but I actually kind of like it. It makes me feel like I have a second chance at starting something entirely new. Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to start their life again exactly how they want it at the beginning of the year? I know I would! So, I wanted to offer some encouraging words for all the ‘new year, new me-ers’ because I know what it feels like to be hopeful of something and have it totally shut down. I want you to know that it’s not bs* like all the popular memes have suggested over the years. It’s okay to feel like you’re gonna be transformed into this entirely new, different and better version of yourself starting January 1st. Don’t feel ashamed or discouraged just because the people around you don’t feel the same way, it’s your life. Just do what you have to do to create this new and better version of yourself and prove the critics wrong.

I’m ready for change.

After all the lessons and experiences I’ve learned this past year I feel like I am ready. Ready to become the best version of myself; mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally etc. Ready for new, healthy and nurturing relationships that have mutual love and respect at the core. Ready to take my blog to new heights. Ready to become the person I was always meant to be but couldn’t because I needed to experience pain, heartache and loss in order to understand and truly appreciate my journey. I’m ready for change. Do you feel the same way? I have noticed on social media that there are a lot of people who share the same sentiments as I do. It’s almost as if we all went through the same/similar situations that have brought us all here. To this conclusion that 2019 is going to be the year of some extremely positive and extraordinary changes and I am personally going to embrace it. Are you with me?

Final thoughts.

I hope everything you went through this year gave you more strength, hope and love in your heart. I truly believe that 2019 is going to be a great year for most people. If you are on this road and journey to ‘living your absolute best life’ in 2019 can you be a darling and let me know in the comments? It’s nice to know that there are others on the same path as you are and who knows, we might actually be able to cheer each other on to do great things (expect a lot of encouragement and inspiration from my blog next year). So I wish you a very happy new year and thank you very much for all your comments, likes and shares on my blog. I appreciate it very much and I’m so grateful for you. For the last time this year I would like to say, thank you so much for reading and see you in my next post!

  1. The Word of God says in Proverbs 23:7, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” With that truth in mind, I’d say you have the right attitude. It’s always right — and always healthy — to believe that you can become better, stronger, healthier, kinder, and wealthier. If you believe it, then you’ll strive for it — at least a little — and you’re likely to make it — at least part of the way if not all the way. But — if we don’t believe it, we’ve already failed.

  2. 🙂 I am one of those who is the opposite of the “new year new me.” I have written about it for my new year’s post. I do believe in continuous year-round goals. However, I believe that you have to go with what motivates you to want to make a change. The bottom line is you get started and follow through. Fortunately, inspiration does not come in one size.

    I know this is true for me as well. I feel like I spent this past year laying a foundation and accomplishing /ending certain things and that this current year is the time to start reaping what I have sown and am still sowing. I’m with you!

  9. Argghh…guess I’ll have to add the odd voice of dissent here, because it truly bothers me when people say that it’s necessary that we experience pain, loss, or heartache in order to grow and become better people. In my life, many of my best lessons were the opposite of painful. Being treated with kindness made me kinder. Being blessed inspired me to bless others. Being hurt or abandoned only drove me deeper into isolation, and made me into a person who is far less risk averse than is probably healthy, and unwilling/unable to seek out close relationships with other people. How exactly is that better? Adversity and pain are not blessings in disguise. We only tell ourselves that for comfort. We suffer, we battle because we’re forced to, and often, we are weaker and worse. I’d just as soon skip that part of life.

    1. Hi Girl from Jupiter! Firstly I want to say thank you for offering a different opinion it’s nice to get insight from different perspectives. I agree with your point that we can also grow from the positives of life, that is very real and very true. I think everybody learns in their own different ways and I personally like to see the bright side of everything especially in the tough and painful moments which is why I am so grateful for them. I’ve had a lot of situations that if I didn’t go through them I wouldn’t be as strong, thick skinned and confident as I am today had I not gone through them. They didn’t make me weaker, they actually gave me more strength that I didn’t even know existed. But we all learn in different ways so I can totally respect the points you made. I wish you the very best in 2019 and happy new year ❤️

    2. It’s not so much that we NEED pain to grow, I think it’s more that if sucky things are going to happen, that maybe we son’t have control of – one thing we CAN do to transmute that energy is to pull the blessings from that pain. I think that’s what most people mean when they say that. And it is also just true. Deep pain might hurt a lot – bit wow it does offer opportunity for growth that might not otherwise be present. And I have to say all the feeling good in the world can’t teach you something to the depth and breadth that pain, however unfortunate it is, will. It’s unfortunate but it’s what makes an impression on us humans. The good stuff we just tend to take for granted. But I like what you say about being blessed inspiring you to bless others … I agree with that wholeheartedly at the same time.

  10. Definitely on board with the New Year / New you concept. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I’m somewhat pleased with my personal development last year but disappointed I allowed procrastination and setbacks to prevent me from achieving my main goal.

    I now want to try and stretch that concept further into New day / New me!

    Enjoyed reading this post.

    1. My guides have been lecturing me about patience lol maybe your procrastination and setbacks are really just a natural unfolding of things in a slower time frame than you would prefer, but which is the best time frame for your higher self or for others involved. : )

  11. This post reminds me of how we all get a sense of a new beginning as a new year starts. My motivation at the moment is low, strangely enough, this is not bothering me. I will carry on regardless towards my goals, as this has probably been my most progressive year in terms of personal growth, despite it also being one of my worst. I leave 2018 behind with the thoughts that everything happens for a reason and I am now trusting the path life is showing me. A lovely energy comes across in your posts, I think because of this all your dreams and wishes will come true. Good Luck with your journey!

    2. Funny that you say that, because I have been lethargic all week! And I tell everyone it’s not depression, it’s not exhaustion, it’s not anything bad, I just feel like I want to be still. Maybe there’s something astrological going on that we don’t know about yet. I’ve struggled with not feeling guilty for putting off things that can wait and for taking time to honor the instinct to rest.

      1. We shouldn’t feel guilty if we are not feeling that great or are not getting things done. We are not perfect, but human. I am learning to just accept how I am feeling whether it’s good or bad. I think this is why I am not bothered about when I feel low, it’s less stressful and I don’t mentally punish myself.

  12. I believe that new beginnings, new years, new versions of ourselves, are very important – and part of what we understood would happen to us when we came here; when we came to “Life.” That we would evolve, change, grow, transform, and then become new again. And then evolve again! Never stop believing in your ability to become your best Self. On one level, that’s who you already are! I know you’re capable of tuning into whoever you think she is – because it’s you. 🙂 I, too, think 2019 is going to be an extraordinary year, even though sometimes I have to remind myself of the truth of that and to just calm down. Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve! Don’t let a moment of your joy pass you by! xxx

  14. I love new beginnings, the chance to learn more about myself and others, and to grow and evolve. Change can be painful, but it can also bring greater joy and fulfilment, some of the unhappiest people I’ve known are the ones who resist it and want everything (and everyone) to stay the same forever, but change is constant and inevitable. Wishing you a very happy New Year. X

  17. Yes yes and yes! I’m hoping to improve a few different things in life in 2019 and it definitely has a ‘new year, new me’ feel to it, which, I agree, has been subject to some scrutiny in social media and memes. But I think if anyone’s going to try it out we can do it together against the haters 😊😂🎉

  18. It’s through adversity that we grow and learn. Change is to be embraced, or we grow stagnant. And change often happens whether we are ready for it or not, so best to be the catalyst for the change we want, not to react to what happens to us.

    I wish you the very best wishes for the new year, and I look forward to continuing to read your blog in 2019 🙂

      1. Thank you! I write quite a bit on self determination and mindfulness, as it’s important we take control of our own path if we wish to be where we choose, rather than where life chooses for us 😊

        It’s why I like Wildflower’s writing, as there is a synergy in our outlook on life ❤
