What a Difference a Year Makes

a495fec94d0828048eeda9bef251aac8 It really is incredible when you think all that can happen in a course of a year. Also, unfortunately what they say is true…”the older you get; the faster time goes!” If only we really believed that when we’re told that at a young age huh? A year may sound like a “long time” but in reality it’s just a blip in this thing we call life. From one year to the next; your life can change dramatically, for better or for worse.

It is important to be able to reflect on where you’ve been, where you are and where you’re going. An easy way to do this is to look at where you were (personally, financially, physically) a year ago to where you are now. Are you closer to those goals you set? Have you ended up in a place you’d never imagined you’d be? Life is funny like that. Just when you think you’re heading the right direction a great big gust of wind comes through and turns you into a completely different direction. In the moment; unfamiliar, unplanned and new is a scary thing to most people. You know what though? Those unexpected twists and turns in your life are meant to point you in the RIGHT direction ultimately.

A year from now your life could be even MORE amazing

Sometimes we’re in moments of life where we’re barely holding on by a string and other times we’re standing on top of the mountain. Sometimes you’ve got the whole world on your shoulders and other times you’re on top of the world. Why is that? Sometimes the answers will reveal themselves and you’ll be able to “see” why something didn’t work out and actually are sometimes thankful that things didn’t work out the way you thought they should. The lesson there is that no matter what is happening in your life; good or bad, nothing is permanent.

In the moments when you feel invincible; embrace it, relish in it, LOVE IT! In the moments when you feel like you can’t handle anything; be patient, surround yourself with positive and uplifting people and always know that even though you may not think so in this moment; everything will really work out the way it should! No matter if your life looks better or worse than this time last year; just know that it could be even better a year from now! Keep telling yourself “it just keeps getting better!” and inevitably it’s sure to.

Repeat after me: It just keeps getting better!

As the years will keep passing by; love yourself and the life YOU’RE creating. Just know that there will be a moment when you’ll look back at everything that has passed and go “wow, what a ride!” Ultimately, that’s it. Life is simply a roller coaster ride so enjoy the ride and please don’t forget to smile and laugh throughout the journey; it really helps! 😉

Has your life changed dramatically in just one year?

Has there been a year that was most impactful in your life? Have you ended up somewhere you never dreamed you’d be (good or bad)? Share your stories and I bet we share a lot of similarities. Hugs and Loves, Wishes for the Soul Tianna Leigh

    So true! The only thing in life that’s guaranteed? is that it’ll change! It’s all a cycle, so yes, enjoy those moments when you’re high up on that mountain and keep a positive attitude. It’ll get you through the rough spots. Great post, kiddo.
