Motivation | Self-Reflection for the New Year


Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.

Usually with a New Year, comes a time of reflection.  You all hear that saying, “New Year, New Me!”, meaning that this year will be different, this year, you’ll make that change.  But is that really true, or have you already changed?

Change can mean a number of things.  Change is defined as to “make or become different”.  A change can take on many forms.  It can be tangible, intangible, physical, or emotional.

Personally, I don’t believe in the “New Year, New Me” mantra because we are constantly evolving.  You may be making goals for yourself for this new year, and that is great!  But it’s not because this year will be different, it’s because of how your life has already changed.  You are already starting off this year as a new you!

Take the time for self-reflection right now.  Perform an introspection of who you are, where you’ve been, and how you got there.  Find the things that you are grateful for.

Maybe this past year has been tough.  Maybe you experienced some very difficult days, or even months, but remember that those things have passed, or will eventually pass with time.  Every day will not be difficult.  Decide how you want to move forward from here.  It’s already the new you.

Not all those who wander are lost.


 

Snorkeling in the Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle, Atlantic Ocean

 


This photo was taken while snorkeling with friends in the Bermuda Triangle.  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be able to check this off my bucket list.  We ended up on a snorkeling excursion here purely by accident.  Because we were open to take a chance, and try something new.

Sometimes people ask me why I don’t spend more time at home.  Why, essentially, I travel so much.  My response – Wanderlust.

I travel to explore.  I travel to learn about life outside of my comfort zone.  To experience a life beyond myself.

I wander, not because I am lost, but because I want to experience the world.
