Stay Present – 12 Ways To Make 2020 ROCK!!
The start of a new decade is the perfect time to reflect and look back on the things that have happened to us through our lives.
Life is a roller-coaster. Sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s scary. Sometimes it’s up. Sometimes it’s down.
There are always so many things available to us. So many opportunities. So many lessons to learn. So much room to grow.
We can take those opportunities and grow, or we can waste our lives with the same mundane routines.
The choice is yours.
The following blog posts are the top lessons I have learned along my journey to self-improvement so far.
I hope these lessons help you along your own path.
Live in the present moment.
That is all I seem to bang on about at the moment, isn’t it? I am even annoying myself. But I have really been trying to make a conscious effort to do this recently and you know what? It’s working! It is so helpful. So I am going to continue to live by this this year.
At the end of the day, this moment is all we have. Why do we want to waste our precious time anywhere else? The past is over and the future isn’t here yet. This is all there is.
Of course, as I said in my last post, I am still going to create goals for where I want to be in the future, but I am going to ENJOY every step I take towards reaching those goals. I am going to allow myself to feel amazing knowing that I am on my own adventure of self improvement and that great experiences lay ahead.
Whatever is, is.
Allow it, accept it, or change it.
If there is something going on in your current reality that makes you sad or angry, accept it, allow yourself to really FEEL the feelings it brings up and then decide whether to ride the storm or take massive action to change it. NEVER avoid those feelings with distractions such as food, drugs, alcohol or other unhealthy habits. It will just come back to bite you in the ass tenfold later. What you resist, persists.
Don’t know how to stay in the present moment? I got my tips and inspiration from THIS awesome post by a fantastic introvert blogger- go check it out!
So that is my first lesson. Take the time this week to really take in your current reality and enjoy it for what it is. Did you notice anything that you never noticed before?
