5 Things I'm Walking Away From in 2018 | Made Lemonade, Diamonds and Pearls | Liger Goddess
Before we start talking about goals and visions for the new year, I’m doing something difficult in today’s post. I’m looking back at the last year and taking note of the areas where I struggled the most. Things that were revealed more to me through this year. Some things, I didn't realize was still there lingering. Because how can you start fresh without getting rid of the junk you are clinging to?
Self - Condemnation
the action of condemning one-self to a punishment; sentencing
I’m annihilating any guilt associated with goals that will be left unmet at the end of 2017. I tend to be the hardest on myself when I think that I didn’t work hard enough or do enough to meet certain business/personal goals. Not focusing on things that was truly out of my hands and forgive myself. Setting and managing my expectations on a weekly basis will be a healthier way for me to handle stressors like guilt in 2018.
Unhealthy Eating + Inconsistent Workouts
Now that I have found out what was causing many health issues at the end of 2016 and most of 2017, I'm on a new mission to relaunch my Clean + Fit Lifestyle. I have truly missed working out regularly like I use too. My clean eating started out so well at the beginning of 2015 as I started to pay more attention to foods that disagreed with my system. I was doing regular juice cleanses / smoothies while and consistent exercising. I’d literally never felt lighter, happier, and/or more energetic. And my skin and hair was beginning to thrive more.
Certain things have been urking me! I want more Organized IN MY LIFE- I have been shredding, trashing, labeling, cleaning, repairing and updating as much as I can ...when I can. There is so much going on in my life now. And it's all great things. But it's also showing me how much more together I want to be and need to be. I'm a business woman with multiple projects going on. It helps me to be more efficient and stay focused on what I am going to accomplish in my life. So, unorganized Tifarah will be less so in 2018!
I have taught myself more than ever to let things flow. That everything will always work out eventually...so chill! But I have notice the areas where that has yet changed for me. I can be most impatient and I don't like it. In life. In business and in some ways my relationships. Technology has especially amplified my need for instant gratification! I have found since living my passion everyday more and more, I want things the way I know I can have them. I think being more mindful of the difference between short-term and long-term goals will help me have a more realistic picture of success and relationships. And I say that right now not wanting anything permanent at this very moment but definitely in the near future for sure. But things happen when you least expected and they come together how they generally should. So, letting go more and let Naava and Life do what it do!!!
Grievances and Wrongs Against Us
I have definitely been wronged this year in a BIG way but God’s word talks many times about forgiving those who wrong us. There is a great quote, “Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.” Holding onto a grudge eats away at our peace, and allows bitterness to take root in one’s heart. God requires forgiveness from us, just as he offers forgiveness to us. In addition to that, He realizes the harmful effects of bitterness and holding a grudge.
Make Lemonade, Diamonds + Pearls
So, all the so called negativity, bitterness, wrong decisions and excuses will be beautified in 2018. They will be made into Lemonade, Diamonds and Pearls. The pressures, trash, and guilt will make this "being" a greater Goddess to rule her Universe wisely. Thank you 2017 and all those who have contributed in all ways. Gratitude!
