Forget Your Resolutions

Happy New Year! If your resolutions fail, thereโ€™s always Chinese New Year in February and Thai/Khmer/Lao New Year in April and well... you can pick any day to be a new you. ๐Ÿ’•

2018 lessons learned:

๐ŸŒŸ Building a business means taking responsibility for everyyyyything, especially the downfalls. Itโ€™s showed me how much I blamed external circumstances in my past, and how I truly am in control of all results in my life. I stopped blaming the system, the economy, the COSMOS, or other people for any โ€œfailureโ€ and turned to gratitude for all the lessons learned from these experiences. โœจ

๐ŸŒŸ i prefer generative conflict over nonviolent communication. Tension is a beautiful thing only when we are open to expansion. (Otherwise, stagnation.) Bring. It. On. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

๐ŸŒŸ How one responds to adversity in life will be the determining factor to any outcome. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ

๐ŸŒŸ Self-care is a full-time job, which means itโ€™s okay to walk away from unhealthy circumstances to make this priority. ๐Ÿ’ค

๐ŸŒŸ Mentors shift, and thatโ€™s okay. Different people provide different lessons at different times in life. ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

๐ŸŒŸ Money is simply a tool; Iโ€™ve learned to view my spendings as โ€œinvestmentsโ€ vs โ€œdebtโ€ - and am willing to take responsibility for any losses (and wins!) ๐Ÿ’ฐ

๐ŸŒŸ A new life is going to cost you: friends, time, money, and more - but it doesnโ€™t have to cost your health. Just remember your future self and inner child are cheering you on the other side. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

๐ŸŒŸ Leading with curiosity and compassion is a lot more fun than living with judgement and resentment. ๐Ÿ˜ธ

๐ŸŒŸ My strengths are greater than my trauma. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

๐ŸŒŸ Courage is a muscle that is exercised through fear (and failure). If it terrifies you, you probably should try it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am proud of the many fears Iโ€™ve befriended this past year, and am ready to befriend more. In what ways have you been courageous this year? If you havenโ€™t yet, take the time to celebrate that. ๐Ÿฅณ
