The general mood at the end of 2018 was quite funny to me…
People all seem to struggle with the same things, bad relationships, whom to cut lose or keep in 2019, society’s opinion, finances, drama, anxiety, doubts and fear. We probably would all relate on a quote saying ” May your social media life be as good as your real one for this coming year. ”
For the first time, someone really close to me tried to commit suicide and this simply affected me in ways I didn’t comprehend. But it also showed me how miserable I was feeling by forcing myself to do things that no longer made me happy. It is hard to be honest with ourselves more than it ever was. Hard to keep the noise out with all the social media frenzy. We kinda all are living the painful life of celebrities, trying to keep up with apparences. We are buying into fake friends and fake lives even if we dont realise it straight away, unless you live in the village I grew up in :), they really don’t care about none of these and I almost envy them sometimes…
KEEP IT SIMPLE, KEEP IT REAL
What is the truth? Is social media bad for our health and mental wellness, or is it actually helping us to cope by dreaming and portraying the life we really want?
Tricky isn’t? Unless you believe in the “Fake it until you make it” motto of course.
This year has been challenging for me and all I wanted was to find my peace. I make to do list all year long, so new year resolutions are nothing special.
Here are the things I would like to work on to achieve that:
1/ Give up overthinking, procrastinating and holding grudges ( yeah… )
2/ Don’t raise your voice, improve your arguments
3/ Quit holding on to the past or even pleasing everyone
4/ Do what works for you at your own pace
5/ Don’t be afraid to fail, fall or love again. This is the only way to learn more and do better
6/ Focus on progress not speed
7/ Keep your private life private
8/ Spend time with your family
9/ Do what you are passionate about as much as possible
10/ Unfollow anything that doesn’t go with your vision
11/ Travel, Travel, Travel. The world is such a beautiful place and there is no excuse to not explore it nowadays.
All these because six months of hardcore focus and alignement can put you 5 years ahead in life. Don’t underestimate the power of consistency and desire. In life, we only regret the chances we didn’t take. That’s the truest cliché you will read today.
