We're in february and I'm still plotting my 2019, the year started on the feb 1st for me! yes, yes. I know, I see you smirking thats either cos you relate or I don't know lol. but this is a safe space right? a judgement free zone.
People keep saying "new year new me" but I've come into 2019 with the "new year, more me" mindset. I've watered myself down way too many times in the past, than I'd like to admit, but this year is going to be different. This is the year where I'm like this is me unapologetic, shameless and free in all my glory.
If you like it, you like it. If you don't then it doesn't matter because someone else will.
Over the years I've had people tell me "We need people like you, people like you-need YOU!" and I'm finally starting to believe that. I've had to unlearn things and understand that putting yourself out there with love and confidence, doesn't make you any less humble and feeling fear doesn't make you any less courageous. You are you and the world needs something from you wether you realise what that is now or later. I hope it brings you satisfaction.
So I'm setting up the foundation for what's about to become, showing you all things Lydia and All things Chronicles Of A Blossom. Learning to document and not just create because the journey is just as beautiful as the destination with all its hills and valleys. Your growth depends on your understanding of who you are, where you're coming from and where you're going. Self-awareness is the beginning of self-evolution, You can't begin your journey without knowing your current location and having a plan to get to your destination. Look within yourself, look at the greatness inside of you, become aware of the things that can hold you back and the things that propel you forward. Use that knowledge to refine your faults & better your strengths.
Goal setting begins with vision, you must be able to SEE who you were called you to be, this allows you to move towards baring the fruits within you and not just accomplishing goals, it lessens your chances of feeling depleted because the bigger picture is there in all its glory, regardless of how the long or how challenging the puzzle is to complete.
Regardless of your circumstances, develop an inner position of faith. See things that aren't as if they were until they become. putting your feelings aside and continuously doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment. Turn struggles into strengths. Pain into passion and flourish.
From this heart to yours,
I love you🤟
