Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Lets start 2018 off with happiness. My New Years resolution is really no different then any other year, which is to be the best version of myself that I can be.

I wish for all of you to be the best version of yourselves as well.

In doing so we need to take a good look inside ourselves and decide what we think needs improvement and what we are most proud of. Change is never an easy thing, often times it can be rather scary. They say, “if something scares you, it means you need to do it.” This is precisely why you should push yourself, and for me why change is so important.

Change challenges us to accept new and different situations that we may otherwise just accept as normal or ok just to avoid trying harder. Self acceptance has been a theme over the years, especially among women. We as women are so critical of ourselves. What to wear, what to eat (actually, what not to eat), what color our hair should be, what hairstyle should I have. Or even, I wish my [insert anything here} was different, and on and on it goes.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel change is good and it plays an intrigal part in self growth and self awareness, as long as we are doing it for the right reasons. You should only want to change for yourself – not for anyone else. The only way the change will be positive, is if it’s something you want for you. To change who we are or how we look to please someone else is not the right reason. This takes me back to my original statement of being the best version of ourselves.
First evaluate yourself
Decide what do YOU like best and what do YOU feel needs improvement.
Figure out a plan of action on how to make these improvements.
And finally…

Don’t let fear hold you back.
Take the first step.
Happy new year and here’s to being the best version of YOU!!!!
