Welcome back to Style Stratigi for a brand new year! 2021 already feels far away, but time feels relative when living in the moment.
The first of this year is feeling energetic and magnetic for what’s to come. A rather nice way to feel considering how last year started. Coming off collectively the worst year in recent human history, we knew that lots of healing needed to be done.
Last year was the most transformative year I’ve ever had. I decided to make an effort to meet the root of my emotional triggers and self-sabotaging tendencies and I know so many others decided to do the same and start their own healing journeys. If you are one of them, I hope you are SO proud of yourself because I’m proud of you.
Life doesn’t get easier, you get stronger!
If the last couple of years taught us anything, it’s that adverse situations are a part of life. There will never be a shortage of challenges. Improving your life by simply improving your mindset may sound incredulous, but perhaps if you believe so, your mindset could use improving to believe in the God-created power within you! It’s a simple answer, but very difficult to implement and – if the inner work isn’t done – difficult to maintain.
2021 brought the best memories to my life, but the highs wouldn’t have felt so high without feeling lows. I learned that sitting with the ugly, yucky, low feelings help sitting with the high, fuzzy, exhilarating feelings for much, much longer. I learned that if you don’t give the ‘bad’ feelings the attention they need from you, you won’t be able to feel the ‘good’ feelings as long because all emotions want to be seen and heard.
I’m continuing to cultivate the safe space I learned to create for myself this past year and expand that here on Style Stratigi – a safe space to be yourself, to be authentic, to curate your personal style, to be comfortable expressing yourself through beauty, to care for yourself without guilt or shame.
I look forward to bringing more love and light into the new year, and seeing you around for the ride.
Happy New Year 💗 xo
