“What a year, right?”
“Lemon, it’s February.”
(10 points for anyone who recognizes the 30 Rock reference between Liz Lemon and her boss, Jack.) But for real. How is it only FEBRUARY. January has been the longest month of all time, and it’s already February 12.
So it feels like a good time to think about my year’s direction. This year, I’m focusing more on being the happiest, healthiest I can be, physically, mentally and emotionally. And so far, it’s actually going really well! I use these tools to pull myself out of toxic thoughts:
- Asking myself WHY I feel guilty, if those feelings arise
- Reminding myself that I’m doing the best I can
- Talking to myself like I talk to my best friends
Overall, it’s been a positive year, and a great one to focus more on myself and my relationships with those I love. The easiest way I’ve done that is by really bringing in my close circle to really include people who love and support ME. It’s easier said that done, but once I let go of the outside things, it’s been much easier to care only about the people who actually MATTER.
How’s your year going?
