Do you like the new look of my blog? I felt a need for change. I suspect it has a bit to do with the changing of seasons; not like we got much summer weather anyways but there's something nostalgic about the crispness of autumn air & the changing colors of the leafs that i absolutely love.
The past few months I have gotten deeper and deeper into myself and discovered a lot of old patterns that I still cling onto that no longer serve me and that no longer aligns with who I want to be. I want to overcome inertia in certain areas of my life. Inertia is defined as the tendency of an object to remain in the state it is in - either in motion or at rest - unless acted upon by some other force. This force can be something we consciously decide or something that will eventually happens to us bcos we fail to listen to our true desires.
Sometimes we go thru life inert bcos we are afraid to break out of our comfort zones or fail to take any responsibility for the direction our life is going. If this goes on for too long something will force us to change. Some of the decisions we make dont appear to be significant at the time but eventually we will become aware of it. For example if you live an unhealthy lifestyle your body will let you know by creating physical symptoms quietly at first. If you still choose to ignore it life will finally shout at you with a full blown illness(worst case scenario).
It really counts to accept yourself. How can you truly reinvent yourself when you hate the person you are? Reinvention isn't about turning into someone else, its about becoming more of the person you truly are - taking actions that are difficult or challenging and moving towards something new. This doesnt happen over night so give yourself enough room to breathe, to learn, to explore and to make mistakes.
It's all about working from the inside out & digging deep to uncover underlying issues but who says you cant have fun in the process. Some days all you might need for an instant boost of confidence is a fresh new haircut or trying a new trend. Just as long as you dont let external things define you. One of the things I love is adding a new element to my room like a painting, some fragrant candles or a new set of bedsheets.
Also learn to approach things differently - with a new attitude, an upside down perspective or with a killer smile. if you want to go somewhere you've never been before, you have to do something you've never done.
