PSA: YOU DO NOT NEED TO CHANGE ANY ASPECT OF YOURSELF JUST BECAUSE IT IS JANUARY – but if you are so inclined, I recommend sprinkling in some more self-love and seeing what happens.
Happy 2020 beautiful souls!
It’s January and that means that there is a lot of pressure to make resolutions for the upcoming year, and even for the upcoming decade. That can be intimidating and stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. You do not need to get roped in by stellar marketers and feel obligated to “get fit,” start a cleanse / detox, or make some great accomplishment within the next year.
You don’t need to make any resolutions at all. However, if you feel up to it, then this New Year, I challenge you to make resolutions that align with your soul, that allow you to conquer your dreams and shine your authentic light into the world.
We were all born perfect and unique beings with our own special talents and gifts. Those gifts are meant to be honored and shared with the world. So, dance your heart out, play that instrument, write that poem, sew that dress, learn that new skill, bake that pastry…
But whatever you do, do not try to change and alter yourself this year in order to fit in with what society says you need to be. You already are exactly who you are meant to be, all you need to do is reflect on what lights you up, and then let that light shine outwards.
Whatever you do, do not get sucked into the coercive and dehumanizing “health and wellness” trend, which is really just diet culture in disguise. You do not need to look a certain way, eat a certain way, or exercise a certain way in order to be worthy, in order to be beautiful.
Your body is merely a vessel for your soul to experience this beautiful world, and our time on earth is finite. Do not go into another year spending time, energy, and money on trying to change your physical appearance.
Instead, I recommend spending this next decade discovering your true passions, exploring what this world has to offer, offering up your own gifts in return, and making valuable memories.
Life is a gift, and it is meant to be lived with passion and authenticity, not from a place of envy, lack, or self-hatred.
This world needs healing. We all need healing. So, I challenge you this year to go out into the world, shine your light, and be unapologetically yourself.
Happy New Year!
With love and light,
