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?
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!
