✨Setting Goals Only Matter If You Actually Take Actions To Achieve Them✨
It doesn’t even have to be big actions. It could simply mean waking up earlier or putting on your workout shoes.
Last year, I really prioritized my health and despite slacking during the holidays, I’m happy of how I’m taking care of my body.
This year I aim to be my healthier self yet. If there’s one thing I realized from working online for almost 12 years, it’s that prioritizing your health is very important.
Because nothing else matters when you’re sick. You will never enjoy your life fully if you don’t feel well and better about yourself.
✨Prioritizing Yourself Is Just As Important As Taking Care Of Everyone Around You✨
I am so used to taking care of everyone around me and it may be a good thing to be selfless but too much of anything is soooooo not good. And this is something I really have to learn and keep learning over and over again.
I like taking care of people. It’s just who I am, but sometimes it could also mean that I sacrifice a lot of things just to make things happen for everyone around me and hurting myself in the process.
So in 2023, self-care is another top priority on my list. I will better take care of myself so I can take care of others better.
✨I Would Turn Back Time If I Could✨
Most people won’t tell you they regret some of their decisions because they are scared of what might come out of it if they actually admit it. It seems that being truthful could mean you’ll be a “bad person”.
But in 2023, I’d be unapologetic and choose myself over and over again.
✨I Deserve More And The Best✨
Never see yourself as an option. YOU are a priority. Your happiness matters. Your needs matter. Your wants matter.
We think that because we are not perfect, we don’t deserve the best. That because we make mistakes, we don’t deserve the best things. Wrong. We deserve more than we give ourselves credit to and we deserve the best. We are better than we think we are.
✨I Reallyyyyy LOVE What I Do✨
There’s no such thing as working too much (to a workaholic that is!).
My day isn’t complete if I don’t do any work so even on holidays, I have this habit of still doing work.
Do I ever get tired of working? Nope. I get sleepy, but I’ll never get tired of doing something I love.
Even when I am on vacation or traveling, I always get some work done. So I guess in 2023 I will still be doing the same thing because I just really love what I do.
✨You’ll Always Find The Good In Everything If You Look For It ✨
What is the first thing you focus on when you have a problem, do you focus on the problem or coming up with a solution?
As a bubbly person who seems to be smiling her way out of everything, I always try my best to look for the good in everything even if I have to try very hard at times. Some days you really have to try harder to look for the best things in life.
✨Treat Yourself Like You Would Treat Someone You Love✨
I have read a ton of self-love, self-care articles and posts but I still find a lot of people, including myself, have a hard time loving themselves.
Do I love myself? I’m still working on it. I love some parts of myself so this year I will do my best to love even the other areas of my self that I think are unlovable.
✨People Can Only Give You What They Have✨
Whether it’s love, care, attention, time or money, people will only give you what they currently have.
Sometimes we’re willing to do more, give more and in return expect more from the people in our lives, expect that they’ll reciprocate in the same level as we give them.
And this is where disappointment comes in. I read a long time ago that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you wanted to be loved doesn’t mean they don’t love you with everything they have. And it’s true. Each person has different amounts of time, love, money and the list goes on, in their banks so keep this in mind all the time.
My two cents is to be grateful for everything each person gives you. You never know when they’ve given you everything of what they have.
And the most important lesson I learned in 2022 is..
✨One Day You’ll Meet Someone Who Is Uniquely So Much Like You And Until Then, Stay Single✨
Time machine hasn’t been invented yet so take it from me, wait and wait more, and wait some more. And don’t get tired of waiting.
Because seriously, “Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.”
Happy first day of 2023! Cheers!
Boss Lady is officially back! 🖤
