Alright loves, this is a very special New Years Motivational Mondays post! It is, after all, the very last day in 2012! *gasp* So, as with every New Years, people start making resolutions, saying goodbye to the past year and resolving that This year is going to be Their Year!
Well, here are my tips for you this week and to keep with you in this brand new year…
☺ Life Starts Now! New Years is a terrible excuse to wait to start living life. We say things like "next year will be better," and "I can't wait for this year to be over." Umm, I've got news for you, nothing is going to be different in the New Year, tomorrow, or whenever if that is going to be your attitude. You are placing happiness constantly in the future, just out of your reach. Choose to change Right Now. Right this Second! Your New Year starts NOW. Your clean slate begins Now! Make changes, don't just sweep the past year under a rug and wait for things to magically happen. Make them happen! How? Read on…
☺ Stop Moping and being a Sorry Suck! Holy, blunt much?! ;) Sorry, but every so often I like to be brutally upfront and honest, like a nice little slap on your pretty faces to get you to realize how useless sitting there feeling sorry for yourself is. I know, because I was one of those people for yearrsssss. I get it, it's hard to break that bad habit. Not! It's difficult because we're lazy and we make it hard, and because we would rather complain than actually do something about it. It's so much easier to sit there feeling all depressed and sorry for yourself than to actually get off your ass and start feeling good. But, guess what? You're going to feel a damn large amount better if you switch off that sorry suck attitude and start feeling good about yourself. If you want change then you have to make those steps. Stop giving yourself excuses, because that's all they are. Oh, what? You're "depressed"? I was too, I was suicidal, hated myself, hated life, and wanted to die. Guess what? I love myself today and I love my life. Know why? Because I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and actually use all that time towards improving myself. And you can too. So no more excuses!
☺ Keep on Keepin on! Getting to the happy road takes time and effort. It gets easier, I promise. But it does take rewiring your brain and attitude and habits, which is why it can take quite a bit of work at first. Never get discouraged. Actually trying means you're heading in the right direction. Every day becomes easier. Every day you are forming new habits. So you can either build positive happy habits and attitudes, or you can continue down a spiral. Never give up! Stay strong, don't get discouraged, remember that you are amazing!
☺ You are so much better than you Believe! Part of being unable to change is the unwillingness to accept that you are worthy of good things in your life. Well, I'm here to tell you that you totally and absolutely deserve happiness, love, and all goods things in your life! Oh yes you do! Just because life has dragged you around doesn't mean it was because you "deserved" it, it's simply life trying to teach you something. Sadly, we often get stuck when something unfavourable happens, we feel down on ourselves and get discouraged so the cycle continues. You can change that though, but first you must believe and accept that you are super awesome and deserve all the happiness and love in the world! You deserve All Good Things! Keep your chin up, you are lovely and deserving and wonderful. Start loving and appreciating yourself or you'll never be happy. Read this article for more on loving yourself:
☺ Learn from the past! Instead of just forgetting about this past year and pretending it didn't happen, Learn from it! Tough experiences teach us valuable lessons. If you just ignore the lessons those experiences were trying to teach you then you are going to find yourself repeatedly back in those places until you do finally learn. This doesn't mean you should hold onto everything from your past, not by a long shot. Let go of the negative and bring only the positive into your present. If it does not serve you then let it go. Just make sure you are letting go in the right way, as I said, and bring forward the lesson and leave behind the negative feelings and emotions.
☺ Consciously Create the Life You Want! One more time now; nothing will change just because it's the new year, You have to Want the change. You have to BE the Change! If you want your life to be kick-ass fantastic awesome fun then make it so! You are the author of your own life. For all the ups and downs, you are responsible for what kind of attitude you are going to have. Whether an experience will make you stronger or weaker. You can choose to be dragged through the mud or you can choose to stand up and stomp and play in the puddles. Only You can choose to make your life awesome. ♥
☺ Learn about the Law of Attraction! Oh yes, you better believe I'm bringing this up again. ;) The Law of Attraction brings into your life whatever you are thinking about. If you are constantly complaining, constantly focussing on the negative, then you are going to be constantly bringing that into your life. Gratitude is everything, the single greatest key to truly changing your life. Start being grateful for absolutely everything, big and small. Focus on the Good, not the Bad. Do this and you actually Will change your life and 2013 Will be Your year! ;)
I will also be releasing a new "Happiness Guide" zine soon, so keep an eye out for that! ;)
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
Much Love from me to you!
Create a Nice Day and Create a Nice Year! xo
