When you feel like you’re trapped on that hamster wheel of life, or stuck in a revolving door of chaos it’s time to sit your behind down and get still. I’ve learned that when I neglect to get still and check in with myself, things really start getting out of control. When I neglect to feed my mind and body with calmness they begin to weaken. I become more prone to colds, headaches, I’m less patient, and I feel more overwhelmed, frustrated, and drained. It’s not a fun situation and if you’ve felt this way before, due to being “busy” out here in these streets, I’m sure you can relate.
Now, as an adult living in this crazy modern 2019 world as a millennial Black woman, where social injustices, twisted information on the internet, and a lunatic in the White House, it’s important for me to make sure I’ve got my head on straight and my mind right. Journaling is the perfect way to ensure I’m constantly transforming my life for the better.
The new year is right around the corner and if vision boards aren’t your thing, there are many other effective alternatives to set the tone for an amazing new year. Here’s what has worked for me and other creatives so get ready to learn, apply, and thrive. Most importantly, have patience with yourself. Honor your journey and don’t be hard on yourself when you see your peers elevating at what appears to be a faster rate than you. Ultimately, I hope you have a phenomenal new year!
As the year begins to close and 2018 steadily appears on the horizon, it’s common for people to get ready to start fresh and make major changes in their lives. They start chanting things like, “New Year, New Me,” "2018 is about to be Lit," they buy new journals and planners, and maybe even create a vision board. They get so hype at the idea of finishing the upcoming year as someone better than ever, only to realize in horror that they’ve just repeated the same year again.
Do you feel like you are not the best version of yourself yet? Do you feel like you haven’t reached your full potential in life and you aren’t operating at 100%? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you are in the right place. It’s time for you to change this belief by learning how to live a life that is filled with happiness, abundance, prosperity, and everything that makes life feel fabulous.
What’s holding you back from being successful? Why don’t you already have a successful business, your dream car, or your healthy bank account? Why don’t you already feel successful and happy about the life you’re living?
How come some people achieve the success they desire while others are left only to talk about the success they desire?
So, I’m guessing you’re here because you’re a procrastinator, right? You are also someone who knows there’s a better life waiting for you in the future but you can’t quite seem to get there. Am I right again? You’ve realized you’re probably not moving forward in life as fast as you would like because your procrastination and is taking control over your life, amplifying your stress and anxiety, and you want to know why, so you can stop it.
I declare 2017 to be an awesome year for us! I plan to keep shedding off my fears, tapping into my potential, and learning how to live a better life in the new year. I have some great intentions in place for now and in the near year and I hope you do too.
Now, before we head into 2017, it’s only natural that we take a look back at what we do and don’t want to repeat in the new year.
