My first post of 2019. New years have always been a big thing for me writing Journals. The first post of the new year has always given me a sense of refreshment, the first blank page of the new year. I guess it’s a little bit of a metaphor for me; the blank page representing the blank slate a new year represents, a new beginning, a fresh start. Here is the first of my fresh start.
This year, I will simplify my life. I will not allow the fear of “I’ve never done this before” hold me back.
This year I will define what I want from my life, from my day, from all aspects of my life and I will take them because it is that simple. I will not over complicate things.
This year I will think things through and not allow the fog of anxiety or depression cloud my mind and make a situation worse than it needs to be.
This year, I will define my self worth. I will not allow anxiety or depression hold me down and make me feel like a child any longer. I choose who I want to be. I will choose which thoughts to entertain and which to ignore. I choose every aspect of my life.
This year I will make friends. I will not let the fear of what other people think of me hold me back. I will be myself and understand that I don’t deserve to be alone all the time. I will find my community and find balance in the relationships in my life.
Every day this year, I will define my own happiness.
This year I will assert myself and not allow the fear of how other people are going to react dissuade me from standing up for myself and being me. I will do what pleases me, I will follow my passions and not allow other people to make me feel inferior.
This year, I will not allow my fearful and broken past define who I am.
With God’s help, this year I will create for myself a future of my choosing and work toward inspiring others to do the same.
Choice is a powerful thing, and it is involved in everything you do. You hold the power over your life. You hold the power over every single aspect of your life and this last year has proven that for me over and over again without fail.
Choose happiness, choose deep thought, choose to love yourself, choose to create the life that YOU want to lead.
Happy new year, God Bless
