Wow, it’s New Years already! I never realized how much could actually change in a year’s time. There’s been so many ups and downs, and tears and lows but, even in the worse situations these circumstances are only short lived, and the blessings reaped from the struggles make all the pain worth it. I haven’t been myself for a really long time, some years actually, but I feel myself slowly getting back to the old me. For the first time I finally feel like I can smile more, laugh more genuinely. My spirit is just so uplifted and this year I just want to hold on to it.
Now I normally do not make New Year’s resolutions, just because, but this year I just want to focus on my vibe and my inner peace. Here are 6 ways I feel like you can protect your vibe.
Protect your vibe.
Demand your Respect. Don’t allow people to talk to you any kind of way, stand up for yourself. People will only get away with as much as you will allow, and they will walk all over you if they get the chance. Set the tone, demand your respect.
Say whats on your heart. It is important to choose your battles, but you should express whats on your mind freely and speak your truth when the time is relevant. Holding on to bad energy will burden you, and eat you alive. Communication should be your way to release your burdens and free yourself.
Make time for yourself. Loving yourself and learning yourself is so important. You have to take a step back from your own world, where you will get consumed in doing things for those that you care about. Why not take some you time and go get a pedicure, get your hair done, read a good book. You deserve it!
Let go. You cannot receive your blessings when you hold on to those that are hindering you. Whether it be friends or family, it can be the ones closest to us that will hurt us, stress us out, and hold us back. It’s not being selfish for wanting to distance yourself from people who just aren’t good for your well-being overall.
Be yourself. The best feeling is being comfortable in your own skin. When you don’t have to hide your true self, your interests, your wants, your needs, your goals, your aspirations. It’s selfish and takes too much energy trying to change yourself for other people, so why would you?
Pray. Make time, because God is always on time. Always.
Don’t settle for less than what you deserve in life. You should have standards that are going to reflect you as an individual. At the end of the day you don’t want people or things around you who are ruining you and draining your energy. You choose your vibe, so you must protect it at all times!
