Bye Bye 2016!
As 2016 comes to an end I would like to go on the record to say " 2016 WAS THE BEST YEAR!!"
The ending of 2015, I made a great decision to eliminate certain things and individuals out of my life. I made a decision to stop doing things and people I no longer cared to do (lol) & just genuinely be fully committed to making myself happy. I notice in 2015 I wasn't truly happy with myself and the situations I found myself in. I was tolerating a lot of things and people and I found my breaking point. I was done giving large amounts of energy, large amounts of love, and support to people who did not deserve it.
I notice that after giving so much of me I was falling short and I did not like how I felt. So I set out to reinstate myself. My mental health, my love, my energy etc. I made 2016 the most inspirational year for myself and going into 2017 I plan on working even harder to live out my best life, and putting more of me on top. I suggest to anyone reading this to do the same. You are not missing out on anything if you are not passionate about it. You are not a bad person if you do not want to further current relationships or friendships. You have the complete right to end whatever you think isn't making you happy, or if you find yourself in a state where you cannot grow from situations, jobs, or people.
Simply pack up your emotions and begin to find your center! I had someone tell me the other day that they wish they could be as centered as I am. A word of advice to that person would be, you have to start sacrificing and letting things GO! I hold onto nothing my goal as I continue to grow is to become more in tune. So in tune to where nothing bothers me unless I give it access to. So in tune that I am like water, holding onto nothing and letting nothing hold onto me.
So many people will try their hand at using you up or will try to come into your life and throw you off and distract you. Let them know that - that's not what you want and you have the right to not accept, just don't be rude about it.
My problem with past individuals and things was that I didn't know now how to say no, or telling people I don't want to hear about their drama. I had this thought if I didn't listen to my friends or families problems that - that made me a bad friend, brother, son, or coworker. But because I didn't voice I no longer had an interest in discussing certain things, I reached a limit where I stop just stopped communicating.
Furthermore; I am just not that person anymore, and I am SO happy, so fulfilled, and so restored. It's amazing! I made a ton of great decisions about my personal and professional life and simply taking ownership of myself.
Going into 2017 If I had to give any advice It would be:
Learn how to be alone and Love yourself!
