Did I already say I’m glad that 2017 is over? I bet I did a 100 times because this past year truly wasn’t a happy one for me and the world as a whole I feel. That’s why it took me a couple of days to realize that the year is finally in the past and a new chance for a better one is here. Like always at the beginning of a year, I made some New Years resolutions but this time on a different note. I really wanted to turn them into affirmations that I want to practice, besides the usual resolutions I would go for.
And there is a specific reason for that. A lot of bad things that happened in the last year and my reaction to them were not only hurting myself a lot but made me suffer more than I needed to. Especially because of my mindset shaped by past experiences. That’s why after a year of realizing a lot of stuff (Yes, I quoted Kylie Jenner here), I decided that my mind needed to change to live a happier and more fulfilled life. Raise your hand if you’re with me on that one. So these are my affirmations, that I want to accept and practice in the new year to reach that goal.
10 Affirmations For The New Year and beyond:
- Never be sorry for how you feel.
- Speak up when it is important to you, even when you are afraid to do so.
- Find your happiness, regardless.
- Let things go that hurt you.
- Be yourself fearlessly.
- Live your passion.
- Do more things that scare you.
- Meditate to stay grounded and focused in a crazy world.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
- Free yourself from negative people and negative thoughts.
On that note, I like to recommend a book that helped me understand a lot of hard situations I found myself in and really had a positive effect on my mindset already. Although I’m normally not a very spiritual person, the book “The 4 Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz really opened my eyes to a lot of things and changed the way I thought about them. Inspired by this great lecture and the affirmations I set for the new year, I’m looking forward to a happy 2018 with lots of happy moments and positive thoughts.
