choose you this year

It’s a new year, and while I don’t really espouse to new year resolutions, I wholeheartedly think that we need to be prepared to re-adjust, no matter what time of year.

However, I do find that this year there’s a need for me to throw out some old trash. Old trash can consist of those people or situations that stink-up your house. Does anybody have any of these? If you do, this might be a time to reevaluate and take out the trash.

I don’t mean nobody no harm, but when you consistently tell yourself that you love yourself, but then you have people in your life who are causing you trouble, it’s the universe signaling to you that these people or this situation doesn’t fit into your desired paradigm of self-love.

So, you might want to consider letting them/it go. But old habits die-hard. If you’re unprepared to let go, you have to put on your big girl panties and ask yourself: “Why? Why can’t I let go? What am I getting from this relationship or situation?” And listen honestly for the answer.

Then you’ll have to make a decision. “It’s gonna be me or it’s going to be them.” And if we’re doing our work, elevating our consciousness, you will get to a place where you're lovingly choose you.

This year, give up small things and shorter people – choose you.
