The month of December is a conflicting time of year for me. Not only is it my birthday month and the biggest holiday season, it is also the month most of us start reflecting on the year we have had. For me, another year of life gives me a strong sense of gratitude and dare i say it…. ANXIETY. What have i accomplished this year? Am i any closer to my goals? Am i in the same place i was last year this time? After this flood of self judgement i realized that I am right where i am supposed to be. In this very moment we can all make the choice to set and commit to our goals. The only thing in our way is ourselves. This year my biggest goal is to BE present for everything. I will be more present with my friends, family, in my work, and in my day to day activities. My encouragement to you is to stay committed to the goal of improving your mental health but be flexible in your approach. What that means is don’t allow obstacles on your journey to stop your progress. Those obstacles are there to prepare you and strengthen you. Stop judging yourself for everything you didn’t do this year and start focusing on what your going to do. You have the greatest gift we can all receive in this life…you are ALIVE. Your greatest potential can be tapped into right now! So what will you CHOOSE to do when the last firework goes off? What will you end and what will you begin?
