I think it's easier to be yourself when you are enjoying yourself. When people say "be yourself" when you are anxious about talking to new people, it's pretty hard to understand how to do that. Especially if you don't think you know who you are yet. But if someone says "enjoy yourself', everyone knows how to do that! And I think when you are enjoying yourself genuinely, no matter the situation, you are being yourself. Because, when you are comfortable with yourself you are relaxed and you aren't really worried about what others think. So I like to say to myself "enjoy yourself" instead because that's a lot easier to understand how to do. Naturally you will be yourself the more you genuinely enjoy yourself and the right people for you will be attracted to that.
Walking with a relaxed attitude and not having any sort of unhealthy expectations for myself and others. Trying new things, going to new places and talking to strangers all with the frame of mind to enjoy myself. Eventually that joy will spread to others and radiate off me, the right people will find me. And even if they don't right away, I will have still enjoyed my self and spread some as well. Spreading it can naturally make people do the same and relax. It's a win-win for everyone. I believe.
New Year, New Beginnings
I'm getting lots of good news lately and with that there is a need to be determined as well and get things done. There is a really big transition happening now in my life that is exciting and new. So I'm really looking forward to it and making sure I remind myself I'm more than prepared and worthy of it.
Even in my dreams I've confirmed this is a great new beginning for me. So I really look forward to it. I'm seeing happy and fulfilling days ahead despite there being a lot to do, but I know I can create a healthy balance between and still get to where I want to be. I have my eyes on the prize.
Personally I can see myself changing old ways of thinking and being that are not as nice as they used to be. Other more satisfying and invigorating things are taking their place. A passion for life as formed in me and i'm feeling generally great. Everything seems more rich and delightful in daily life as well. So many wonderful opportunities.
I'm seeing myself in a more authentic light as well, everything in my life including myself is elevating. But still pretty smoothly, I feel like i'm going at a pretty good and smooth pace. I have time for everything and their is no rush, right now I just need to make space and make sure that everything is in it's right place in my life.
