New Year, same me.

Although December 31st and January 1st are just one day apart, the change in years feels somewhat heavier than just another day.

When I find myself in a season of reflecting, there's a quote I refer back to - it reads, “Every morning we get a chance to be different. A chance to change. A chance to be better. Your past is your past. Leave it there. Get on with the future part, honey.”

To be honest, I've never been one for a new years resolution, because I've never felt I needed a date on the calendar to encourage me to "change." However, the past twelve months brought me challenges I never expected to face - challenges that at 27, didn't even seem possible. If we want to call 2021 for what it was... it was f*cking hard, I get it. And for those of you manifesting change, I don't blame you. But as the year began to wind down, and the people around me started talking about who they wanted to become in the new year, I could not help but come back to the idea of no change at all and instead, embracing all I had become; because despite the hardships, 2021 was actually a very monumental year for me as well - I bought a house, recovered from a surgery in half the time the doctors said I would, shifted my career focus... and through it all, what I saw was that I had become more myself than I had ever been. I began to look at the missed swings and the wrenches thrown in my path as part of my purpose rather than a setback. The more I saw myself step into the woman I was meant to be, the more I felt I was born for such a time as this.

I say all these things because, change is inevitable and it comes with the rising of the sun each morning. When I look back on the person I was a year ago, I hardly recognize her, nor do I want to. Instead I look back and see all of the things I set out to do, all of the things I wanted to accomplish and despite the odds, I did just that.

In lieu of change or the "New Year New Me" motto, here is my wish for 2022; whatever you have been carrying that is heavy on your soul, set it down and walk away. May you rise with the sun to accomplish the things you have your heart set on. May you leave all the people you meet better than when you found them. And may you continue to step into what sets your soul on fire.

2022 is the year of 'same me' just loving myself better than ever. As the sun rises on a new day, I encourage you all to do the same. And for whatever hardships this year may bring, may we all remember...

Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.
