Okay, 2019. I see you.
Holy sh!t, January has already brought on some tremendous changes and challenges. These changes have nothing to do with diet or New Years resolutions, but about aligning with and honoring myself more.
I've been working through some major blocks in my life that I know have been the root of many recurring situations. The things I've been drawn to are a reflection of my feelings around these blocks.
Somewhere along the way, one wrong perspective created a string of unnecessary suffering.
Flowing into February, I'm eager to start changing the habits I've had for most of my life. The end of the wrong perspectives.
No more suppressing emotions. No more being "busy" to avoid facing feelings. No more sweeping it under the rug.
If I'm sad, I'm going to cry and learn to ask for support. I'm going to identify my needs and not abandon them.
It's time to take the "strong" mask off and remember it takes more strength to acknowledge my emotions than it does to show the world I'm always okay.
We all have something going on. We're all doing the best we know how to do. Be gentle with others. Be gentle with yourself. But, as hard as it is, never stop reflecting and growing.
