Every year I look back with a new respect for myself, the people I love, and the fact that the world is still spinning.
2017 is no exception.
On this 2018 New Years Day, I am nine months, six days sober. I’m finding every day that my attitude about things I find hard to deal with in life; only changes when I change it; allow the change to happen; and embrace the change fully. I have learned a lot this year about myself; and to what extremes I will go to for health and happiness.
I do not have to hold on to turmoil; or things, habits or people that cause my life stress or harm; and to spin out of control. I do not have to be that kind of person, that focuses on the negative either…and have been doing well In that area, compared to how I used to be.
I’ll take that.
To value myself in times when others may not, or in situations that may not be ideal for me; causes a rift in my unhealthy thinking cycles; and it then pushes me towards the positive change, that is now starting to stem to every other aspect of myself, and my life.
Little things have added up.
The change was and is still slow sometimes; it is always ongoing, and often still frustrating….
But I AM becoming.
I WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH THROUGH THE BULLSHIT IN 2018.
This year, I’ve made a promise to myself, to live every single day as if it were my last and without regret at all; and to also help as many people as I can to feel worthy of doing the very same… NO REGRETS. I have goals that I’m excited to meet; and a hope that I will get to where I need to be; if I just keep, keeping on.
I look back at this last year….and it was difficult, but worth every single second.
2018 is going to be a solid year for me, because I refuse to let it be anything else.
It’s taken me a long time to get here….and I know it’s just begun.
I couldn’t be more excited.
I hope your New Year will be full of positive things, happy moments, and goals met.
I also hope you rock it in your own kick-ass way…and LIVE it like there’s no tomorrow… Because that’s what really matters. 🙂
