This year may not have been your friend. It was more like the enemy that made you trip and fall so many times.
This year was the bad boyfriend that broke your heart, an awful boss who couldn’t see your worth, that jealous coworker, a friend who backstabbed you, all the people who exploited your goodness…
The good news is that you are still standing in spite of everything, in spite of everyone that kept bringing you down. You are so much stronger than you think.
I know you have been beaten and burned by this year and that you feel like you are at the end of your strength.
I know you are emotionally drained and physically exhausted, but you have to believe, always believe that happiness is waiting for you just around the corner.
Remember when you are down there is nowhere else to go but up.
When you spend so much time deprived of luck, it’s time for that luck to show up again in your life.
It’s time things start looking up for you, and there is no need to wait until the beginning of the next year.
The last month of the year could be the month that changes it all.
December might be your plot twist, the unexpected turn for the better if you decide to make it that way.
Yes, it’s all in your hands, but if you want things to change you have to invite change into your life.
You have to stop repeating the same old scenarios, expecting the outcome to be different.
Start by saying goodbye to your poisonous relationship.
Whether is it past or present, exclusive or almost, if you are not loved and appreciated, let it go.
You deserve more than someone’s fake promises, low investments, and crappy behavior.
You need more than staring at an empty screen. You deserve more than hoping that things will change and be good again.
Make your own life great.
Get rid of self doubt and there is nothing you can’t do. Get rid of people telling you you are not worthy and see your own worth.
Be the one who changes all the ‘cant’s’ into ‘cans’ and succeeds against all odds. Believe in yourself. Love yourself. If you don’t, who else will?
You are the master of your own destiny; don’t doubt that for a second.
You have the power to own your life. Only you have the final say in how you want to be treated. You have the say in who stays and who goes from your life.
Don’t dwell on your mistakes. Forgive yourself for not knowing better at the time. Learn from them, grow from them, and leave them in the past where they belong.
Toss the idea you have to have your whole life figured out—nobody has their life figured out.
We are all just playing along, adjusting to changes, learning as we go. We are all putting on an act that we know what we want and the way to get there.
Don’t compare your life with the lives of others. Don’t think they are happy all the time. A perfect life is only possible on Instagram. Reality is something else.
The truth is we are all lost at times. We all go through the whole spectrum of human emotions from pain to happiness, and that’s fine.
That’s how things work. That’s what makes us human.
Don’t be afraid of the future—look at it as a challenge.
Make the most out of your present. It is about accepting the unknown with a positive mindset and handling what you can’t change with the best of your abilities.
God can’t help you if you don’t help yourself first, so start.
Get up right now, and do something for yourself. Do whatever makes you happy. Whatever makes your heart hurt a bit less.
Get into the Christmas spirit. Pray. Eat. Love. Dance. Laugh. Do things that make your heart smile.
Work on yourself for yourself. Take care of yourself. Remember that you are important too. Give yourself the time and effort you so selflessly keep giving others.
You deserve some me-time. You deserve to relax, unwind, and spoil yourself rotten from time to time.
You owe it to yourself to be the best version of yourself.
Make this December awesome. Make it into a month in which you decide to take things into your own hands and write the plot twist you will be happiest with.
