The most significant takeaway that I'm carrying into 2018 is "Do you!"
My therapist said this to me at the end of an anxiety-filled session late Fall. That session, I sat there spilling just how frightened and skeptical I was about my gut feelings. I felt insecure and began questioning my decisions <---that was an indicator that something was off within me. Not that anything was wrong or anything needed to be done on my end. She reminded me just how far I've come. I forget about that from time to time. When my gut communicates to me, it usually always means "pay very close attention".
I left her office feeling lighter and something clicked.
I kept telling myself "Do You!" when I made decisions. I tried my very best to leave little to no room to question it. Allow it to just ride out. My decisions thus far have significantly surpassed in benefits than in loss/regret.
That's my message to myself moving forward and for anyone else who may find themselves on a similar space. Check-in with yourself. We wake up every day to not be mediocre. Keep being your biggest cheerleader and go for what's yours. So here's to being Unapologetically you in 2018. No new year, new me.
More like, continuing to be the BEST version of me. Shine on!
