Another year coming to an end. Better yet, a brand new year is about to begin. For some, that means going back to the gym (I should just go ahead and pencil myself in on that list). For others, perhaps other personal goals are being set now with hopes they last about a week into the new year.
For me, it’s about moving forward. I’ve overcome some pretty tough obstacles this year, and I’ve learned from all of them. So rather than looking at this last year as difficult, I choose to highlight the silver linings. For example:
-Perhaps it is not a no, but just a not yet.
-Yes, I can survive working for a sociopath, and it lead to my finding a great job near my home. With great people!
-Yes, I can find a way to laugh at boggling situations and circumstances.
-Yes, I can learn to be my own self and uphold my own boundaries, even if the person who pushes those boundaries is one dearest in my heart.
-Yes, I can teach in the community about ways to live your best life.
-Yes, I can use my education in energy healing to do just that; heal people.
-Yes, I can write a collaborative piece in a book about a trauma that lead to the darkest period of my life.
-Yes, I can learn to slow down a bit and take some time for myself.
-Yes, I can start my own business AND be on the board in the leading wellness center in my area!
-Yes, I can actually make decisions based on things that are good for me, rather than compromising because of fear that I may disappoint someone.
And yes, I can keep going. Nevertheless, I persist. Looking back at that small list, I see a huge amount of growth. All of that growth sparked from lessons, experiences, and decisions. So yes, while I will keep myself penciled in for the gym, I strive to continue with personal growth and knowledge.
How about you all? What things have you learned you CAN do this year? I’d love to hear your stories of strength and survival!
Until next time!
