Reflecting on 2019: How it really feels to close out the decade

The truth is that if you feel that you are moving through the universe in a direction which feels the most appropriate for you; and your days offers a sense of in-tune pleasure that drives your purpose for living then it doesn’t matter what year shows up on my iPhone calendar.

Happy New Year and Happy New Decade. Wow 2020 we made it. Looking back on the last 10 years it’s wild to think that so much has happened and to really absorb the impact that the twenty-tens had on who we are now. In the last 10 years there have been extreme highs and tremendous lows for me and it behooves me to say that I am in fact a better, more developed version of my younger self. I am however of the mindset that just because the date on the calendar changes doesn’t necessarily mean that another transformation must happen.

The truth is that if you feel that you are moving through the universe in a direction which feels the most appropriate for you; and your days offers a sense of in-tune pleasure that drives your purpose for living then it doesn’t matter what year shows up on my iPhone calendar.

It’s okay to not be okay as well. There’s a stigma that everyone must be doing better than everyone else at all times. I’m sorry if that’s what you subscribe to but it’s sadly not the case for many of your fellow brothers and sisters who are navigating their way through the universe. It’s alright to know that you are not where you need to be and ok to feel off track. If that is you, and you’re starting 2020 feeling this way then look at it as a clean slate. We have much more time to get it together and start making small choices that can create a larger impact.

Here are 4 affirmations for 2020:

  1. To you who’s not feeling like you’re enough today. Remember everything you feel isn’t true. And everything you feel isn’t you. You are enough just as yourself, don’t accept anything less. – Jay Shetty
  2. I am focused on what I truly want for my life based on my own values and life experience.
  3. I am joyful, fulfilled and free. I live in perfect alignment, balance and harmony with my life purpose.
  4. I am passionately and joyfully pursuing the unique calling in my life…every day I am moving close and closer to achieving my goals.
