Life resembles a book filled with many chapters of new beginnings! I believe starting a new chapter brings forth the vision to open a new door in your life. The month of May is my birth month, which makes a new milestone that I refer to this year as Chapter 52.
I'm grateful and excited to begin this chapter with a fresh mind and spirit. More specifically, it feels like a renewal phase of taking on new challenges and pushing myself to higher heights. I like to consider it as my "continued journey forward" stage. If you find yourself resenting new beginnings and chapters within your life, or fearful of the unknown, this column is for you! Here are a few tips of encouragement:
CREATE NEW HABITS
Good habits are essential for living a happy life and studies have shown that choosing the right habits will not only help you reach your goals but can allow you to become the person you want to be. New habits can be as simple as waking up early or incorporating more physical activity into your daily routine. To get started, think about habits that would inspire you to feel encouraged, motivated, and determined!
ENVISION THE NEW YOU
Think about an end goal and imagine how you want your life to be. Consider making it a fun experience of reinventing yourself. Perhaps consider a new hairstyle, cut or color, updating your wardrobe, or improving your diet. Overall, it's about creating the best version of yourself.
DO SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY
There's no time like the present to do something memorable and exciting! So take time out to learn about exciting places to visit in your community and add them to your #calendar. This is also a great time to consider checking off some of your bucket list items!
REWRITE YOUR LIFE STORY
This is a creative way to help you develop self-confidence while allowing you to live life on your own terms, not others. To begin, set a new theme for your life. Here are a few examples: perseverance, love, and rebirth. Once you have decided on your theme start envisioning how you see yourself in the future and how you can make a change within the #universe.
LEAVE YOUR FEARS BEHIND FOREVER
Say goodbye to your worries and avoid getting buried in other people's fears. #Fear is a learned trait, and often what others say to you is a reflection of their own fears and beliefs. Always remain hopeful and keep the faith whenever fears arise.
