It takes about thirty seconds to decide to change your life. It takes a lot longer to implement those changes. Life is exciting, thrilling, scary, saddening and frustrating all at the same time, but we only ever get one of these, and it’s not a run-through or a practice. There are no do-overs and there are no chances to go back and start again. It’s not a video game; it’s your one shot to make a mark on the universe. I don’t know if reincarnation is a thing, and I don’t know whether there’s going to be a big set of gates waiting for me afterwards. What I do know, is that life is only going to happen once, and if you know you need to make changes in yours, now is your moment. Not tomorrow, not next week, now.
Choosing how to do it? That’s the bit that takes time. Identifying the problems in your life isn’t always easy. You may already be at the bottom of the barrel and knocking on the door of being rock bottom, but that just means that the only way is up for you now. You need to take a look at what you could improve and make those improvements right now. Here are four suggestions for a life-changing 2019.
- Detox. When it comes to detoxing your life, it’s not just about checking into a luxury drug rehab center. You need to strip back your life to its basic state and extract all the negativity and poison within it. Take a moment and breathe in what your life could be like without things that pull you down.
- Career. Your whole life is funded by what you’ve chosen to do in your career. Money isn’t everything, but it’s sure much easier to enjoy things in life with a job you love that brings you the salary you deserve. Look at your career. If you’re unhappy with it, it’s time for change.
- Love. You deserve love. You deserve to have someone look at you like you are the only person in the world. Do you have that? Do you have a love in your life – whether that’s a partner, a child or a friend? Finding love should be at the top of your list for 2019.
- Laughter. When was the last time you smiled, really smiled, and that led to a belly laugh of epic proportion? Taking the time to laugh is important, and even when you feel like you’re down on your luck, the wheel of fortune will only ever spin the other way again. Take your luck where you can and learn to laugh loudly and openly.
2019 is a year of you, of change, of discovery. These years? They don’t last very long. A day feels like it lasts an age when it’s a bad day, but imagine what your 2020 will look like if you make the most of your 2019?
