Previously in ‘Weekly Quotespiration’: Are You Always Hard On Yourself?
”I am not who I was a year ago and that brings me so much peace.”
The amount of gratitude that I have for no longer desiring the same things I did a year ago baffles me and its endlessly comforting. I mean isn’t it somewhat crazy how we change to a point that we no longer care to hear about something that we once wanted so bad?
I’ve come to accept the fact that change (for the better) is an utter blessing and is one of the most beautiful things that we undergo as humans. Personally, so many of my desires, wants and wishes from last July have simply faded, no longer make sense or are simply incompatible with the Yara writing this post today…and ‘that brings me so much peace’.
I could just throw a simple example of how the ”Last year me” wanted to have a closet full of the latest trends. The current me just wants what’s essential and a few non-essentials here and there. I am developing and nurturing a minimalist state of mind since watching the documentary on Netflix and I’ve been enjoying taking this approach to my social media content, my shopping habits and my life in general. Had I remained the same ‘Last year me’ I would be in some serious starvation from channeling my wages into funding the dream ‘blogger’ wardrobe. Another good example is blog statistics, Instagram statistics and so on. The current me finds utter contentment in sharing my best and most inspiring content on the internet and that’s it.
I could mention numerous things that were so relevant to the ‘Last year me’ are simply meaningless to the current me. Things that last year would get me depressed, today won’t bother me to a minimum.
Change is a process and it doesn’t always occur naturally. Some key mindset changes I’ve undergone and decisions I took were literally a result of days of seclusion and deep self-evaluation that lead to great advancement on self discovery.
I shall discuss about self discovery on a future post. Although some changes come naturally due to life circumstances, others come from us really taking a look inside ourselves, questioning, wondering and putting ourselves outside the box that we may unknowingly have put ourselves into. Going back to ground zero and building up from there, we can reach new and fresh conclusions about ourselves that will dictate our actions from then on and that’s when the ‘blessing of change’ starts to take place.
What about you, how much have you changed since last year? Let me know on the comments!
