As I expressed yesterday, 2011 was a year of change for so many of us and this world we live in. As we move into a whole new year it's good to look back into the things that happened in our personal lives and how the external forces of change shaped us. It is very important to reflect on how much we changed and make a conscious decision to keep on improving the good change... but it is also important to identify what we need to leave behind and do it for good as if it was a detox.
Leave behind old grievances, bad feelings, low self esteem, negative thoughts, toxic relationships and everything that makes will make you say "I can't". Once you've said good bye to all those bad habits and things that drag you down... then you welcome the new year along with a whole new YOU! I leave behind the most toxic thing you can drag with you in life, fear. It makes me feel bad and doesn't allow me to move forward and look into a brighter future.
Once again I thank you for an amazing 2011, for spending your precious time with me, and for sharing your thoughts about so many topics covered in here throughout 2011... Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I wish you and you family lots of happiness and success for 2012!!!
