It’s that time of year when we all begin to look back on our accomplishments from 2018.
Did we get that promotion? Did we take a step closer to our dream? Did we practice kindness to strangers like we swore we would? Did we follow through on our health resolutions?
Maybe you followed through on everything this year, but maybe you got caught up in the ups and downs of life. For all my fellow dreamers out there, I have a couple pieces of advice:
- Be Kind To Yourself
It can be easy to fall into the melodramatic trap of, “Why didn’t I do what I promised myself? I failed at 2018. What a waste of a year.” When we step back and examine our thoughts, we can clearly see how over the top these statements are. Was your whole year a waste? Absolutely not.
Nobody is perfect 100% of time, and it is unreasonable for you to expect that from yourself.
- Finish The Year Strong
About this time of year it seems that many people get “senioritis”. 2018 is almost over and 2019 will be here in a few short weeks. I know I am not the only who has thought, “Well, I’ll just start being the person I want to be on January 1st”. Somehow believing that day is magical and we need it push us forward.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love New Years Day. This type A girl loves setting goals and dreaming for the coming months, but does that mean I throw in the towel and stop growing in the here and now? No.
Finish this year strong. It is never too late to start working towards your dream. You have everything you need inside of you to accomplish it.
Let these last few weeks propel you into the New Year with a new found passion.
What are some things that you can do in the next 3 weeks to finish 2018 on a positive note?
