Happy new year, my friends! I hope you’ve all had a restorative holiday period and are looking toward the next 12 months with hope and a fresh perspective. I sure am. 2022 was not my year (neither was 2021 to be honest), however I have learned a lot from this time and am looking towards a new chapter in my life where I take back control. So this post is for me as much as it is for you. I want to start today not with a list of resolutions per se, but positive affirmations for the new year.
I am proud of all my past achievements and am looking forward to new ones
From small steps to bigger milestones, don’t let any of them slip by without acknowledging that they got you here – to where you are today. And by continuing on, more achievements will inevitably come your way. Be proud of each one.
I am ready to get out there, and be confident that I will make a better life for myself
Whether you are ready for change in your day to day life, relationships, career or in another aspect of life, believe that you have the means to do it. Because if done confidently, you can take on anything you want to.
Persistence is key, I will not give up on my dreams
Don’t forget what your heart desires. Sometimes it’s easy to slip into the mundane life without realising that you’re not living up to your full potential or following your dreams. Always remind yourself what your goals are, figure out a starting point to form a plan and keep going. If other people can do it, you can too.
I feel peace in my heart and mind, and this will help me through
Don’t worry about all the distractions of life. Focus on finding inner peace and lead your life by what your heart tells you. Simple tasks like meditation, journalling, feeling gratitude, or living a slow life can help achieve clarity in this.
I trust in myself to make good decisions
No-one else can figure out your life for you. To start on your path to following your dreams, or finding strength, peace and happiness, we must have faith in ourselves. You know what is best for you.
I am ready for opportunities that I have been too scared to take before
Imagine a world where every choice you have made wasn’t clouded by fear of failing. If we put aside risks, what will we be able to achieve? Take any opportunity that come your way; if there are no opportunities, make some.
I will be brave in my future edeavours
Being brave, wise and stubborn in what you want is the key to pushing through the hard times to make your dream work. You do have that strength in yourself, and you can shape this next chapter.
I release any negative emotions towards people, and any negative judgements that I hold
It’s hard to go forward if we are stuck thinking about those who have hurt us. Letting go of negative energy is vital to live a joyous, appreciative life. Any closure you need, demand it. And then move on.
I will not be embarassed to ask for aid from others
Sometimes we need help achieving our goals, and that’s ok! Don’t be afraid of asking for favours or a little help making your dreams come true. We can’t do it all on our own.
I am willing to be open-minded about what the universe has to offer
It’s important to accept that there isn’t just one set path for us in life. We must explore different options and if our heart’s desires change along the way, then we can be strong enough to welcome the change.
New beginnings are a blessing
Take this new year as a fresh start and run with it. Even if you have said that you are turning over a new leaf before and it didn’t stick, trust that this is the one. Not everyone has the opportunity to go on, we are the lucky ones.
Happy new year, and may you find what you are looking for in 2023.
