Whether you are aware of it or not, you have gotten comfortable with your life and your feelings even if it’s not the life you want, you are comfortable. That’s what makes it so hard to change.

In order to make sustainable change, you must invite uncomfortable into your life.

If you are trying to change your life, and it feels like you've been spinning your wheels yet nothing has changed...stop spinning the same wheels.

If you want something new in your life, you must be different in order to do something different.

A great way to begin this journey is to journal about, or simply consider, your answers to the questions below. Be honest and open with yourself. Evaluate where your life is today versus where you want it to be in the future.

Pay attention. Your investments matter these decisions can change your life in major ways:

  • Who are you being? Are you adopting a new mindset and an updated set of personal beliefs?

  • Where is your time going?

  • Are you investing your money everywhere but yourself?

  • Where you do place your love...with everyone else or with yourself?

  • What friendships do you prioritize and how do they make you feel?

  • Where do you put your energy...on the opinion of others? On defining yourself by your job or salary? On complaining with friends about how much dating or your job sucks?

Take inventory of what's working and what isn't.

Make a few, small changes at a time.

Discover where you need support...and seek it out.

Find out what you love about your life, what you love about yourself. Own it, and grow that love.

And take a risk. The first risk I recommend that you take is self-love. How can you invest in yourself? What does that look like? How could that change your life?

The first steps to self-love are letting go of perfection, letting go of guilt, and letting go of your past.

Commit to yourself and to your future.
