Growth, Self Reflection & Mindset.

Howdy, howdy! 🙂 This year has been off to a great start. I spent my Dec holidays working and spending quality time with with friends, family & honestly can’t wait to break for a few weeks to recharge. I’ve just had a lot going on, lol! Your girl is burning out!

Last year also came with a lot of re-learning and learning. I had to painfully let go of unhealthy habits and adapt to change as well. We all know that this can be easier said than done, so let’s get into it, shall we?

One thing that has remained unraveled is my growth mindset. However, It is a daily struggle to improve and maintain your mindset and personal growth, but a journey well worth the effort to become who you were meant to be!

Screw Society – Focus On YOU 😉

Don’t let society bully you into believing that it’s selfish to focus on YOURSELF! You can’t truly live to serve others until you have a strong mindset and take daily steps toward achieving your passion and purpose in life. If you want personal growth this year, you better be open to change.

No one is perfect, including the two of us. As a result, training your mind to think accurate and positive thoughts rather than dwelling on past negative emotions will be a daily struggle. Let’s not forget about our fears and worries.

Fear is a rational emotion, but you must work not to let irrational responses take control. I too struggle a lot to separate fear from my desire to grow & enjoy life. However, we MUST find a balance.

Self Reflection & Evaluation

The first step to master your mind involves self-reflection and evaluating your life. Do you love yourself? Do you put your well-being first? Are you happy? Do you dwell on negative thoughts? Do you have daily energy? Have you found your passion? What are your values? Do you have a self-care routine? What goals are important to you? When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

The most important part of this evaluation is personal growth. You are trying to better understand who you are now and who you’d like to become, so that building the life of your dreams becomes a possibility. It is also great to know what your heart truly desires.

When your actions come from your heart and not your head, then you’ll live a fulfilling life and achieve your dreams.

A reminder before you begin reflecting on your life, make sure you focus on things about your life that you can control. Key word, CONTROL! While at it, remember it’s okay to fail sometimes. Don’t let the few times earth knocks you down make you question you capabilities or make you lose your confidence. It is through failure we learn to become the best version of ourselves.

Lastly, always remember that the answers to a fulfilling and happy life are INSIDE you, but in order to hear them, you must quiet the noise and drama that surrounds you. ONLY YOU can make the changes necessary to further your happiness and build the future of your dreams.

I hope this article has inspired you to reflect, create & continue creating a life you desire. 🙂

Thanks for reading! Love&light. Always, Xo!?
