You know those images you have in your head of how you and your life should look? Give yourself the gift of erasing them. Start the year with a clean slate.
That's the first step in making this new year your most positive, loving, and creative one yet. Make 2017 the year when you take such good care of yourself inside and out, when you reinforce the positive, when you let go of toxic self-judgment. It's time to give up feeling like you're not enough. Instead, look around and realize there is no one like you. You are a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time.
You'll need to learn to know and love yourself just the way you are. Be ruthless about not comparing or compromising who you are. Ask for what you want. Sometimes you won't get it. When that happens, don't turn against yourself and despair that your life is not working; instead, trust the wisdom to keep going and refining what you want to create and how you want to live. Ask for help in the areas you need support and guidance; at the same time, offer your gifts to help others who need your support and guidance. Be transparent, find people you feel safe with, and create a tribe of like-minded people who also want to make this their most positive year.
This is your beautiful life, the one and only Bella Vita. Give it meaning, embark on new adventures, don't let anyone or anything rob you of your joy. Find what makes you joyful and go do it often. The time is now. This year is your chance to let go of the things that don't work in your life and redesign your life to serve how you want to feel.
