How to Start the New Year Empowered

Before stepping into the new year and saying ‘HELLO 2021’ – taking some time to unravel the current year and looking at the things that made you happy, the things that you accomplished, the things you did not, the goals you reached or didn’t reach…will enable you to start the new year feeling empowered and in charge of yourself. It’s like doing a decluttering of yourself, you’re making room and freeing up space within, to be open and to receive the new that the new year has to offer.  It shows you where you may want to make changes, what you don’t want to bring into the new year, what you want to let go of, and what you want more of.

One thing to remember in the process of going over your year is to forgive yourself, let go of things that don’t serve you anymore, and be proud of yourself, you did the best you could, the best you knew how, when you’re done celebrate yourself, you’re awesome!!!

My yearly ritual is to first look at the current year and then ask myself what do I want in the new year. I like to make some time on the weekend or during the week, I don’t do this all at one time. I like to write it down, it gives me a better view, so i have a notebook with me, and I ask myself questions, here are a few:

^^^ Questions for 2020 ^^^

What am I most proud of myself for this year?

What was holding me back?

Where did I let myself down? What can I do to change?

What was my biggest challenge?

What am I most grateful for?

^^^ Questions for 2021 ^^^

What part of myself do I want to nurture?

What is my one big dream and what do I need to do to achieve it?

How can I better take care of my health?

What do I want to learn this year?

How do I want to feel in December of 2021?

A search on Google will yield loads of questions to ask yourself in order to unravel yourself and live at your highest best.

Bear in mind that getting to know yourself and changing yourself takes work, it takes dedication, it takes forgiving yourself and loving yourself unconditionally.  It takes a conscious effort, a wanting and willing to dig yourself out from the illusion that you accepted as the truth, in order to transform yourself into the grandest version of who you truly are. 

Your life is a gift, meant to be lived by YOU

don’t just let it move past you, take charge and live it consciously and aware. 

You are the one creating your reality every day, make it – extraordinary!!!

  1. What a beautiful message that comes at just the right time. “…forgive yourself, let go of things that don’t serve you anymore, and be proud of yourself” – I love this. 2020 has been a rough year for everyone, and it’s probably more important than ever to take some time to look back at what’s happened, work through it, revisit our goals and work on both forgiving ourselves and nurturing our self-love a bit more. Lots of love to you for sharing this, Masha  ♥
