Happy New Year and welcome to a New Decade! 🥳🥳🥳
I’m super hyped about this new season, literally and figuratively.
While I am starting the year off with positive affirmations and declarations over my life, I am also asking some really important questions. Like:
*Who am I?
*Who are the people in my life?
*Who do I want to be? and…
*What and who am I really willing to let go of?
Wanna go on this journey with me? Cool, keep reading…
Who are you, darling? Who are you?!
Before we tackle who we want to be, we gotta get real on who we are now. I’ll start.
Hi. My name is Crystal, and I’m awesome. 😎 see, that was easy!
Okay, for real now.
Hi, my name is Crystal and I’m awesome. I’m a super cool nerd 🤓📚 that loves neuroscience 🧠, Starbucks ☕️, Jordans 👟 (👈🏽 those are NOT what Jordan’s look like,lol 🥴), Dr Martens 🥾 , cinnamon , aliens 👽 , and zombies 🧟♂️ . (Like The Walking Dead kind, not the super goory kind). I am a recovering perfectionist and people pleaser. 🤦🏽♀️ I don’t like it when I feel like I disappointed someone 🥺. I am an amazing person 🤩but sometimes I forget that because I’m moving so fast 🏃🏽♀️💨💨💨 and trying so hard to fix the things 👩🏽🔬👷🏾♀️👩🏽🔧I don’t like about myself 😔. I also threaten to run away to Canada 🇨🇦✌🏽when I feel overwhelmed 😰. Okay, so enough about me🤓…who are you? You can be honest. I’m super non-judgy. 🤟🏽😉
Now that we’ve clear the air and got real about who we currently are: here’s my next question:
Who are the people in your life?
Like who are the people in your life that influence (for better or worse) how you feel and think and believe about yourself??? (Oooh, that’s deep😮)
While you’re thinking it over I’ll tell you about me…
I have people in my life that fit into one, or more, of the following 8 categories:
CHEERLEADERS 📣 :
These are the people that want to see me win. They make it known that they are on my side. They wear my uniform. Loud and proud. Go Crystal Go!
Sad fact: Sometimes I don’t believe them. Sometimes I feel like if they really knew me they wouldn’t think I was so awesome 😥
These are the people who try to make me feel that nothing I do is right. If I take a chance on an idea they tell me if I’d run it past them it would have come out better. You know, cause they know everything about everything.
Sad fact: Sometimes I let them cause me to quit prematurely 🕳🤸🏽♂️
These are people that don’t really know me but as long as I’m doing well, they’re with me.
Sad fact: Sometimes I try to hard to please them so they’ll convert into true friends🤞🏽
CLOWNS 🤡 :
These are people that want to distract me and entertain me but have no substance and can not be taken seriously.
Sad fact: Sometimes I’ve stayed at the circus too long 😨🎪
CAMPERS ⛺️ :
These are people that camp out in my life so that if good things happen for me they have a front row seat 💺. But picking up camp is easy. Cause they were never there to stay. It was only temporary. 👋🏽
Sad fact: Sometimes I thought they really wanted to stay 🥺
These are the people that tell me what I wanna hear so they can get something out of me.
Sad fact: I really wanted to believe their lies. I thought that if I gave them what they wanted they would love me. 💸💔
These are the people that can’t stand to see something good happen for me because they think it should be them.
Sad fact: Sometimes I’ve quit because their hate was so strong I questioned my worthiness. 😣
These are the people who are really there for me. Up or down and in between. They don’t waver in their love and support.
Sad fact: Sometimes I don’t thank them enough. 💝👏🏽
Whew, I said a lot. But we’re gonna process this and move toward recovery.
Cause 2020 is about seeing clearly, right? So we have to look in the mirror and see ourselves, then look around and see who us is really for us. Then we’re gonna make whatever adjustments need to be made. I’m cheering you on the whole way! We got this!
