My Accidental New Year’s Resolutions and how you can Write your Own

View this post on Instagram

Last week I accidentally wrote New Year’s Resolutions (and I loathe New Year's Resolutions) when a bestie asked me what are: ⁣ ⁣ 5 old self things that you want to let go of⁣ ⁣ 5 new self things you want to move towards⁣ ⁣ 5 things about yourself that never change ⁣ ⁣ A little trick is if you look at your list of things you’d like to change, write the opposite down for “what you want to bring closer” because that’s 👏what 👏you 👏actually 👏want. For example: one thing I want to let go of is trusting other people’s opinions more than my own. The opposite of that is self-trust, which is, in fact, what I truly desire.⁣ ⁣ When I finished, I realized without trying, I had a clear list of intentions of how I want to live my life. Big encouragement to take some time to do this. I sent it to my group chat and then the coven discussed later that night when we met up. Let me know how it goes! ⁣ ⁣ Also this picture is from my newsletter (which you can sign up for on my website) header and I thought it was cute so I wanted to post ☺️

On Becoming a Different Version of Yourself

On becoming a different version of yourself⁣:

(as I sit in the uncomfortable-ness of my own change!!) ⁣

This has been on my mind lately. Maybe it’s summer turning into fall, but I just feel a lot of change all around me. ⁣

It’s okay to evolve into a different version of yourself. It can be overwhelming to feel sort of unrecognizable to yourself, but it’s all part of growth. I know a lot of my college freshmen feel this way. Any experience that stretches you or helps you evaluate what you want and how to get there, can be uncomfortable. You’re just becoming a more truthful version of yourself. Be patient. Be gentle. Have a dance party. Cry. Call your mentors. Tell the people you love, that you love them. This too shall pass. 📸 by @maja_bee
