2022 Won't Be Any Different
Too many of us are waiting for something to change. Waiting for the world to turn around and hand us the easy path or for an unseen future hero to step into your life and guide you to where you want to be. I have to be real with you- no one is coming to change your life, it’s all on you. I want you to understand this so that you can do something about it. I want you to hear this because if you are stuck waiting, you’ll be waiting until the end of your life.
I’m not telling you that life isn’t hard at times and I don’t want to discount the pain and setbacks that you’ve had and will have. I am telling you that it’s okay to feel those things and to move forward. How many of us are living in the past? How many of us have had a painful experience and then let that memory turn into a justification for a second rate life? Know this- The hardest times in your life can build your best life. It’s more than just important that you allow yourself to move on, it’s vital. It’s vital to you, your family, your friends and the whole world that will be affected by the ripple of your life.
So what do I mean when I say “2022 won’t be any different?” I’m talking about making a change. Making a change in the way that you think about your life. You need to start believing that the best days of your life are ahead of you. Start believing that the future is brighter than you can even imagine it to be, but it won’t just show up one day. You have to put in the work day in and day out. Make sure that you have a routine that you can stick to, one that keeps you present each day. Some people use prayer or meditation, some people take walks or spend time outside, read or journal. Whatever it is that helps you fully recognize the potential of the day ahead of you, I encourage you to make it your gospel.
Negative thoughts will come for you, they always do. Negative people will try and knock you off balance, they always do. Don’t lose your trust in humanity, build the trust in yourself that you will be able to handle whatever it is that the day will throw at you. Your fears will fall off of you like water down your back. Every battle you’ve survived is a battle you’ve won in this life. It’s your time to choose whether you will fear the fight or choose to live in the confidence of your victories. There will be scars, there will be pain and blood but you can handle it. You’ve done it before.
2022 won’t be any different, unless you make it so.
It all starts with you.
