The start of a new year is always a great opportunity to refocus, repurpose, recenter and reclaim.
The end of the year is good for reflecting and sorting through successes, mishaps and failures. Try to figure out why you failed and what you can do to avoid similar mistakes in the future. This is also the perfect time to map out new goals, set new intentions and claim your success for the year ahead.
In 2019, mental, emotional and spiritual peace is priority.
Let your self-care practices outweigh how anyone else feels about you putting yourself first. Sacrificing your peace for the sake of making other people comfortable ends NOW.
Why should we continuously sacrifice our peace and happiness for people who are blatantly inconsiderate of ours?
Going forward, if it doesn’t make you happy, if it doesn’t add any value to your life and if it doesn’t bring you peace–it must go. This includes ending meaningless relationships, clearing out my friends lists, timelines and feed’s, and surrounding yourself with people who love, support and pour into you without looking to reciprocate in some way.

I hope this inspires someone to get rid of any extra baggage they’ve been holding onto for the sake of sparing someone’s feelings. Weighing yourself down so others can fly freely isn’t fair to you. You deserve peace and happiness just as much as the next person does. So, if letting them go means reclaiming yourself, your purpose and your peace…well, so be it.
Remember, you never need a new year to start fresh. Do it now.
