After the year most of us had we can seem lost or stressed out, it’s normal! Even though we are pretty far into 2021, I have noticed a serious shift in perspective happening in my life. Things that were important to me last year or even the year before are no longer important. Let’s talk about how you can shift your perspective and get back to what really matters.
What’s Important To You?
On a real note, 2020 was a rough year for a lot of us. Even if you were financially stable and nothing was out of place, the whole world was just off. I know that I personally had a huge shift in perspective from fall of last year until the beginning of this year. Things that were important to me then are not even on my radar now. A lot of them include trying to “look cool” or “where the best outfits”. Realistically, I am usually covered in flour, wax, or dirt and roaming around my home in pajamas. And to be real, that is how I like it.
Why Where Those Things Important To You?
Something that I really found myself asking myself were why I liked the things I liked. Was it to look cool online? Was it to improve myself? Was it to become a better cook? I had to really break it all down and figure it out. Most of it was that I was just confused and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, or even what I should be doing. The beginning of this year had me doing a lot of self-reflection. This is the point where I decided to open up my small business.
If you are having trouble figuring out what is important to you, let me tell you exactly what I did. I just sat down with my journal and wrote down five things that I could not imagine my life without. From there I wrote down three things that I want in my life more than anything. Those things are what I shifted my perspective towards.
What Does Your Life Look Like Now?
The most important thing to remember when it comes to a shift perspective is that you are in control of your life and you have been this entire time. You may have made poor choices that you are dealing with, or you could just be unfulfilled with your life. Either way, from here on out, it is all about changing that.
Imagine your ideal life. What steps can you take right now to get closer to where you want to be? I know that we all cannot move to Paris right now, but think about what you would do on a perfect day. Would you make breakfast for yourself? Would you make your bed? Would you sit outside and read your favorite book for thirty minutes? Small things like this can make a huge difference.
Sometimes the smallest changes can make a huge difference. Here is a great list of ways to change your perspective from Make It Brave that you can incorporate into your daily life. I think the most important thing that you can do is just to always remember that you control everything in your life. Don’t be afraid to get rid of anything holding you back or bringing you down.
