New Year’s On Slow Speed
Are you one for waiting for New Year to start your new thing? The New Years' resolution that you are going to "Smash" this year. NOOOOO
How about you don’t? How has it worked out for you in the past? I wonder if this new years' you give yourself time to think about what actually means something to you. Instead of rushing in, and thinking you can make all the changes overnight, and then be disheartened in 2 weeks’ time when it is all too hard and you give up.
What if you could you go slow and steady and win the race this new years'?
How can you decide what means the most when your feed is filled with highly selected pictures of fantastical lives, and incredible bodies, and the greenest of juices, that no one is telling you that actually tastes like pond water, or actually that happy family shoot took 20 attempts because the kids were pulling each other’s hair out?
Clear out what makes you feel less than good
The Instagram filters that make you look more plastic than Barbie, stop smoothing out your humanness. You are a Woman. Own that shit. Be BEAUTIFUL AS YOU ARE
You are wonderful.
How many roles do you play in life? Mummy, wife, sister, daughter, auntie, niece, worker, cleaner, driver, laundrette, chef, general tidier upper…. You get the gist, and I know there are men out there that fit this profile too. I’m not bashing men and I’m not forgetting about them, but most of you reading this are female so I’m sticking with that…
But aside from all that, who are you? If you drop all the labels?
If you let go of the pressure that you feel to do all of those things, the requirement placed upon you to become that woman, WHO ARE YOU? Perhaps you have forgotten?
I know how easy that is to do. So that’s why I say quit following the trend.
Skip the resolution and just get straight to making this year a year that counts. I hope you enjoyed Christmas, and that it was able to be all of the things you needed it to be, but now I want you to start thinking about yourself. What makes your heart sing? What has your soul been screaming out for but until now has been pushed aside or denied.
I am still me, and you are still you – It’s a matter of re-evaluating the priorities.
I adore my children, my husband, family, friends etc., the roles I play are vital but before they came into play, I was just me. I am more than mum. I am more than any of those labels. I am still me too. I still love the things that used to make me, me. It is time to make time for you, ladies.
Everyday is a new day and can feel just as fresh as New Years'.
Every day is an opportunity to work on allowing yourself to be you, and be happy about that. It’s not about being the best. It’s not about being pressured into being something other random people tell you to be. It’s not about doing what someone else says you should be doing. It’s about you. Being ok with being you.
These next 365 new days are going to be interesting. Will you come with me?
My love and wishes for New Year.
