Learning To Accept What Matters Most In Life

Learning To Accept What Matters Most In Life
With all of the things that are going on in life, I am realizing that I need to be more aware of my mind!!
This year I made the conscious decision to only focus on things that will bring me joy and happiness in my life. Today I woke up and realized life is too short for a various amount of reasons and I really want to spend the remainder of the year spending more time with my family, working on my personal endeavors and of course getting closer to God. I feel like at this time of the year it is so easy to second guess yourself with certain things but I am here to tell you that if you keep the plan in motion, you will eventually see the results that you want to see. Grant it, I have not always been the best at remembering this advice but it sure does come in handy when you're really trying to get your life together.

As the year continues to pass us by, I am starting to really think about all of the little moments that I have enjoyed throughout the year and more. I find that when I compare all of the things I did accomplish vs. what I haven't accomplished I still feel like I have done pretty well for myself. I feel like September is one of those months where everyone seems to be a bit frantic but I personally feel like this is the best time of the year to let go of all of those unaccomplished things and live your best life. Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying forget everything and leave all of your goals behind but what I am saying is it is important to be a little kinder to yourself as the end of the year approaches.

A Few That Have Been Helping Me Be Kind To Myself
  • Removing any toxic energies from around me, whether that's social media, people I know or even negativity on the news, I just stay away from it.
  • If I don't want to do something, I literally choose not to do it. No more going back and forth with the situation, I just let it go so that I can free up space in my brain.
  • Getting "Back to Me" in any life situation. I know it is easy for me to always want to help others but this is the time of year where I really need to make sure that I have my life together for January. Like it is for most people, January is a fresh start and also a time to brace yourself for the yearly transitions of life.
  • I always say that people get two birthdays in life, their actual birthday, and of course the birth of the New Year! I try not to think about it too much BUT not thinking about it stresses me out so everytime I do I just write down a positive word that I want to work on during this season and try to execute it into the now. That way when the New Year arrives my goals will transition smoothly instead of starting randomly on the first of the year.
  • I have also found myself enjoying simple moments with my family and sometimes myself. For instance, yesterday I sat on the floor in my mama's room and watched an old Tyler Perry play and I loved it so much. Sitting down, phone free, and being surrounded by family, good food, and laughter instantly brightened my mood for the day. I have now decided that I need more moments where I am calm, collected, and of course full of joy!

Sometimes the only thing you need in life is to accept what matters and put your time and energy into those things an people. This thing called life is a learning process and I feel like the only way to survive it is with God, creating your own peaceful space, and slowing down to enjoy the moments. I have found that when I remove those ridiculous rules and barriers off of my life, things are definitely more enjoyable than they were before. I don't know about anyone else but I want to have an amazing rest of 2018 and really enjoy the rest of the year for what it's worth! Anyways, do you guys have anything you want to do more of before the year ends? Or just in life in general? Let me know...

Best,
