As we are move into the New Year, with new apprehensions this time, we are also motivated by new desires and goals. This period of the pandemic has been a very trying and challenging time for most people. For the majority of us, it has been a time of deep introspection and coming to conclusions about life, goals, challenges and achievements.
In these days of staying at home, there was time for everyone to look within and be objective about their own selves. Filtering the why’s and what’s was quite a task.
The greatest gift of this pandemic has been measuring of self-worth by each one of us. All the issues we have are based on our level of self-worth and now the whole of last year was the ideal time for an inward journey.
We are unhappy because of our low self-esteem and our habit of being self-critical. This erodes our sense of joy and takes us farther away from our purpose. Fixing this trait is essential.
APPROVE OF YOURSELF
Develop thoughts that nourish and support you. Thoughts are mere words put together, only we give them a meaning. Try and think positively about yourself. Loving yourself is essential. As a part of growing up, we tend to take on the dreams and desires of our peers, and also perform what is expected of us. It is our duty as individuals to recognise and acknowledge our own personal dreams.
We all develop comfort zones, but we need to realise and accept that change is the only constant. We build up stress within because we are rigid and resistant to change.
Always feel that your desires are worthwhile. You need to feel worthy by desiring money, love, good health, quality life and more; let go of negative patterns.
LET GO OF RESISTANCE
It is your own inner resistance to change that does not allow happiness to step into your life. Be positive and open to change.
Learn to forgive yourself for the mistakes you think you made. It is important that you should feel cleansed and empty of any negative emotions. It is only in the empty space within that positivity shall flow.
Acknowledge your weaknesses and create affirmations according to your current state of being. Bless your current position with love. It is your own thinking patterns that define you.
