The New Year is upon us, and for many resolutions will be set and abandoned within the first 8 weeks of the year. Those resolutions were, more than likely, set to achieve some level of happiness – financial, physical or emotional. THIS year, let’s quit some stuff in order to move towards happiness rather than adding, abandoning and then feeling the subsequent self-loathing for lack of achievement.
Let’s consider QUITTING the following:
COMPARING. Comparison is the thief of joy. Stay in your own lane. Get clear on what you really want and chase that.
EXPECTATIONS. “Expectations are a down payment on future resentments.” The bar you set for yourself is for YOU. Placing that same bar for others is a really quick way to get frustrated and disappointed.
CONTROL. Listen, you only have control over you and your behavior, reactions and responses. You have control over the process but not the outcome.
APPROVAL. You don’t need it. You are an adult and are capable of writing your own permission slips. Life is short and you are allowed to do, think and feel what is best for YOUR Soul.
LIMITING BELIEFS. You are amazing! Take a moment to write down all that you have achieved. Really. Do it. If you are more than 2 years old, you have achieved a LOT.
2021 is going to be an amazing year ((PROMISE!)). You will be challenged, there will be change, there will be joy, love, loss, excitement and fear. It’s all happening. Some of it you will like and some of it you won’t. How you navigate and respond to it all will shape your year.
So, CHEERS to YOU, the New Year and QUITTING!
