Hello everyone, and happy 2019!!!!
It’s officially the first #SMWednesday of the new year! How crazy is that. And also yesterday happened to be January 1st which means the 3rd Anniversary of Stylemotivations‘s foundation. 3 years since this little baby of mine came to existence and became a huge part of my life. I treasure every second. This platform which gives me the opportunity and freedom to be creative is my source of authenticity. Stylemotivations is me & I’m Stylemotivations. Does it make any sense? Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along and being part of this journey. I am very excited for what the future has to hold.
With new year the New Year’s resolutions arrive. New ideas, new plans. New vision. To have a certain vision for your future days is very important. Nevertheless, let’s be honest, very often as far as the New Year’s resolutions are concerned they tend to be very… shallow, to say the least. To start working out, eat healthier, etc.etc. You don’t need a new year for that. I used to make a list myself too. But the older I got the more ridiculous and pointless it seemed. So for the last couple of years I try to choose only one feature I want to focus on. Usually personality-wise. A step I want to take in order to improve as a person.
What is the step for 2019?
I am a big overthinker. And who is not. My overthinking reaches a whole another level though. I am guilty of assumimg whatever I do is never enough. I want to do my best, make everything perfect. I push really hard because I am afraid of not living my life the way I want to. I’m terrified of wasting time. Time is so precious. Therefore, the final result is quite simple. I am very hard on myself and very often it leads me to hidden corners of my mind I wish I was rather not. Especially the last approximately 2 months of 2018 took me to very dark places. I set myself a goal which I wanted to reach in a very short period of time. I put a great pressure on me and it ended up with me not able to function anymore. I still have that goal. I still have the vision. But I refuse to put so much pressure on myself anymore. I will not force things. What is, is, what flows, flows. I will only be helping it along the way.
May 2019 be the year of us not being so harsh on ourselves. To set a goal and work hard for it is very important. It gives us a purpose in life we all need to feel enthusiastic. Enthusiasm is the fuel. However, putting so much pressure on our shoulders is not the solution nor a short-cut to the aim. How long can one deal with such a pressure? Not for long. Trust me.
I hope you step into 2019 with excitement. But I also hope you let yourself breathe. You are a human being who needs to use his/her senses. To see, to touch, to taste, to sense… you need to experience and enjoy. You are not a machine.
I wish you all the best in 2019.
I wish you a year filled with magic.
I wish you a year in which you’re able to find peace within yourself.
