As 2019 wraps up and nears an end, I have been wondering : How can I ring in the New Year with truth?
I have heard many say, as the year ends ” how awful 2019 was”, or “This year can kiss my toochas!”; this seems to be the trend for the end of every year, and what a negative trend that is! How is it that we so easily can decide that only negativity helped us to shape up in entire year? I will tell you why: It is deeply ingrained in our thinking and how we react to situations. So how can we make our truth for 2020 positive and healthy? Here are some tips to help you on that road!
Find the positive
By finding one positive within every negative nugget that your brain stirs up, you will start retraining your thought patterns. I do not want to hear: But it is SO hard, Erin! It is not. The truth is, you EASILY let the negativity roll in, because your thought patterns have taught you that is what you feel you deserve. But guess who created those thought patterns? YOU! So it is time to just as easily let glowing positivity roll in. Example: Gosh I really suck, nobody likes me. Turn that thought upside down: I am learning how to like AND love myself, I think I will treat myself to a lunch, movie, coffee, etc… today, I DESERVE pampering! I am not asking that you turn EVERY negative thought into a positive, it will take time. But I am asking that you start off with one a day and work your way up; YOU’RE WORTH IT!
stop letting the opinion of others control you
We so easily let others opinion of who we are, or how we SHOULD be in their eyes effect us; and usually it is those closest to us, but sometimes it is strangers as well! The truth is, the only opinion that matters is ….YOURS! As we make our way into 2020, I want you to hold that knowledge near and dear to your heart. How high you hold YOUR opinion of yourself is all that matters; if it is negative, then others are going to see that, and feed off of that, which can lead to negative and controlling behavior which you will easily give into. The more lovingly you treat yourself, and your surroundings, the more positive people are going to treat you! And if they do not….they are not your people. period.
These are just a few tips to get you started for your fabulous New Year ahead, and learning how to ring it in with truth. Skip the health goals, the finding a new partner, new house, success, etc…because the truth is, all of those things will begin to come naturally as you learn to live your best life, and love the amazing person you ALREADY ARE! Success is within you, how you treat yourself, how you react, and how grateful you are for the life you are living. Because being alive is truly the biggest gift of all.
