The Best Year Ever. 2013: #mybestyear
I said that 2013 would be amazing. 2013 LOVE, yeah?
And that being said, I have been having a pretty great start to my 2013. Lots and lots of positive things coming my way y’all!
But this week was challenging.
This week was super duper of the frustrating.
You know when something is so asinine and out-of-control that it makes the space between your eyebrows hurt? Yeah, I had that happen.
The space between my eyebrows ached all week.
And I really hate holding tension in my head.
Because, you know, it gets me stuck in my head. And then I worry, I get angry, I second-guess, and just plain feel frustrated.
I let another person affect me in a negative way. I let another person’s inadequacies, confusion, short-sightedness and, to be honest, complete idiocy, stress me out to no end. (And trust me, y’all, if I actually wrote down everything that happened you’d think it was bizarre and ridiculous. And that I was making it up. It’s that silly and nonsensical.)
And as I woke up in the night GRINDING MY TEETH in annoyance for the fourth night of the week. I decided.
I’m done with this.
I am not wasting energy on individuals who have poor self-esteem, people who don’t respect me, who ask me to COMPROMISE MY MORALS, and who aren’t bright enough to realize that they are being discourteous, inane and ignoble. (And who wouldn’t know what those words mean, either. #Justsaying.)
I got my new BIRCHBOX this week.
I love Birchbox. So much. Beauty products every month. WHO WOULDN’T WANT THAT? It’s my present to me!
And Birchbox reminded me that 2013 is going to be #mybestyear.
2013 is going to be the best year.
But I have to let go of the ickyness that has pervaded the year thus far. And only keep all the truly awesome things that have happened so far. (And there have been bunches of them, I promise!)
After a particularly frustrating day, my yoga teacher Laura Conley turned me around with a small phrase that resonated deep in my soul. “You can always begin again.”
And for 2013 LOVE to fully kick in, I need to start over. I’m gonna let go the furstration and, although I can’t control the source of my frustration, I can control how I let it affect me. I control me. I am beautiful, strong, and intelligent. I have strong morals that I refuse to compromise and will act in the way that I believe to be right.
So I am going to approach that person and those tasks that are making me want to pull my hair out from a fresh place.
I’m beginning again.
I’m publishing this post. I’m letting go of all the annoyances and the frustration. I want to make room for all the good. And there’s no room for good if I’m wasting space, time, and thoughts with dissatisfaction and grumpiness.
Once again, it is time to meditate and chant the mantra Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha. Time to remove those obstacles. To check in with my 2013 LOVE goals.
And begin again.
And, of course, listen to Miley Cyrus before she went so crazy! The Climb always lights a fire under my belly and gets me feeling positive and excited about the journey. How do you re-connect to the journey? What makes you excited to begin again?
There’s always gonna be another mountain.
I’m always gonna wanna make it move.
Always gonna be an uphill battle.
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose.
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!
Time to start climbing to the top again.
Here’s to 2013 LOVE. #mybestyear. BEST YEAR EVER.
