Happy New Year! I’ve definitely been gone for a bit (more on that very shortly), but I’m back and ready to write. In starting out 2023, it’s a perfect moment to get back to #MondayMotivation!
I saw this quote some weeks ago. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of my dating life and entertaining the wrong guys. “The longer I entertain these dudes, the longer I postpone my finding the love of my life,” I thought.
It hit me later that this was more than just about dating. This is about how you approach life period. The longer you keep entertaining bad habits and negative actions, the longer you postpone what you really desire in life. The longer you eat junk and stay undisciplined, the longer you postpone you reaching your health goals. The longer you give yourself excuses for procrastination, the longer it will take to get things done (and you may find other obstacles now in your way because you waited for however long).
A lot of times, we KNOW the right things to do but we sometimes end up excusing our behaviors or people that we allow in our lives. Then we look up, and an entire year has passed by and we’re still in the same spot. Y’all know I saw we, because we’re in this together and I DEFINITELY don’t have it all figured out. In order to get better, we need to reassess our patterns, processes, and yes, people. That’s what I’m challenging myself to do this year.
In 2023, let’s stop postponing the life that we want by entertaining what’s really not meant for us. Happy New Year, y’all!
