8 Quotes for Home Owners for the New Year
“Disconnect to Connect”
So many times we waste our precious time scrolling through Instagram and rabbit holing through Facebook that we forgot to stay in the moment. By disconnecting from excessive social media use, you’re allowing yourself to focus on what needs to get done, and are opening up your time to get creative and create new goals for yourself.
“Self-care is not selfish, you cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
When we get so caught up in work, we forget to listen to what our body’s are telling us. If your body is thirsty, feed it water. If your body is telling you it needs exercise, make a point to get active. We tend to focus on getting a task done as quickly as we can, but sometimes we sacrifice our body’s wants and needs in the process.
“As soon as you stop wanting something, you get it.”
Dreaming is a wonderful thing. In fact, it’s often the beginning of really great things. But dreaming alone isn’t going to get you to your end goal. If you’re dreaming about a new job, very rarely does a new job opportunity turn up in your lap the very next day. You have to make a plan of how you’re going to get there. Wants + plans = results.
“Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity.”
Let 2018 be the year you distance yourself from negative thoughts, feelings, and people. Negativity is the number one cause of broken dreams. Find people who lift you up, help motivate you, help guide you, and serve as your cheerleader. In the end, these are the people who are going to be happy for you when you reach your goals.
“Expectations are resentments waiting to happen”
Keep your mind open as you head into the new year. If you have a high expectation of a meeting, or a job position, you leave a lot of room for disappointment if it doesn’t’ happen that way. Plan for the best, practice hard, and the result will be what it’s suppose to be.
“Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.”
Often times we are our own worst critic. Make sure to applaud yourself on progress and change. If you are waiting until the end to give your self some love, and it’s taking longer than expected or it doesn’t happen, your body doesn’t get the appreciation at all. Celebrating wins, even the small ones, can help you stay motivated.
“You’re not going to master the rest of your life in one day. Just relax. Master the day. Then just keep doing that every day.”
Worrying about the future your whole life will prevent you in seeing the beauty of the now. Take your life one day at a time, appreciate the progress and strength of each and every day, and continue doing that. A mastered series of days will lead to a mastered life.
Confidence is not “they will like me,” confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t.”
True confidence is hard to attain. Often times we all have this false sense of confidence linked to how many likes we get on a social media photo, or how many friends we have. True confidence is allowing yourself to be OK with criticism, taking harsh words and growing instead of tearing yourself down.
