“Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around. Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved”.
Roy T. Bennett
Let this be the year for real growth and real change. Let it be the year that you decide who is good for you, and who needs to go. Whether it be a friend, family member, relationship, etc, decide what it is that is toxic and let go. Change your thinking, change your life. What we think we become. Every thought we have, every single one, if we feed it, it definitely grows. Our mind is powerful. If we feed it with the right things, we will have no desire to hold on to things or people that are not helping us grow. Let thoughts of self identity be the root to detach from anything or anyone that does not build you up. Keep feeding those thoughts. Change may be hard for many of us; of course it is. But change is sometimes the very thing we need. After all, nothing grows if we remain in the same place. You may be in a pond; but don’t you know there are oceans, rivers, lakes, etc? Don’t remain in that pond. Expand yourself. Sometimes we don’t realize what is weighing us down until we wake up and finally let go. Growth is essential to our well-being. Learn to detach in healthy ways without resentment or bitterness. Focus on your growth. Change for me this year so far has been far greater than I could ever explain. We cannot control everything. We have to take a leap of faith and believe and hope that it will work. Many changes are happening in my very own life. I am truly thankful for the experiences, the growth, the new perspective, the expansion of wisdom in my mind, the power of learning to let go more and more, and the eagerness to start new. Change is inevitable. So do what you can in your own life to detach from the burdens that weigh you down. This is a new year- a year that is yours. It is 365 days that you have to grow. Let this year be a year for your own new perspective on life. I hope you grow this year. I hope you find the courage to let go of anything weighing you down.
