Finding The Good In Goodbye In 2018

What did you kiss goodbye in 2017?

I kissed away my fears and doubts, broke up with negativity and procrastination, and refused to even give two cents about uncertainty and confusion. There was no room for that bunch in my 2018! I packed light for 2018! At the stroke of midnight I was sleeping like a baby. I’d set out and accomplished more than I intended in 2017. I carried with me hope, strength, a renewed and rejuvenated spirit,  patience, faith, self love and resilience. After all I was going to need all of those things if I was going to conquer 2018.

Goodbyes are always hard. Goodbyes signify the ending of a year, chapter, and sometimes a relationship. The hardest part about goodbye is that there is this looming awkward space. The space between the familiar and something new. When a year ends, like most people we reflect on the highs and lows of the year. Whilst attempting to embrace the momentum shifting forward. It can be a bit scary to walk away from our comfort zones. After all we are comfortable in predictability and routines. We embrace yearly traditions, old friends, and remain safely tucked into our positions at work until it’s time to change. Goodbye, is it a bad thing or a good thing? Depends on your perspective.

Do you see the glass half full or half empty? Are you stuck or slowly progressing ? Are you satisfied or just settling? The answer is up to you. There are no right or wrong answers, in my opinion.  The important thing about perspective is to remain truthful about how you see things from your viewpoint.

I like to find the good in everything even goodbyes. I know goodbye feels heavy and emotionally draining at times.  It’s uncomfortable. Losing the guy you liked so much. Leaving a good company. Walking away from a low paying gig. Whatever your goodbye was in 2017 embrace it. Embrace the chapter and learn the lesson it taught you in the process. I like to reflect on goodbyes as a good thing. Goodbye for me means it’s time to turn the page, close the book, and embrace the next level. After all isn’t that what we are all about…progressing, growing, living, and thriving into becoming our best selves? Think about it. When you walked away from a toxic relationship or friendship, how did you feel afterwards? Hopefully after your emotions settled. You felt relieved, recharged, and refocused. Why? Toxic people are draining on the mind, body, and spirit. It takes a lot of energy to carry that weight around. When you said goodbye, you meant it. That was your moment to reclaim your power and make room for the right people to come into your life.

This year I want you to confidently and securely look for the good in goodbye in every situation. This is your year to soar to new heights. To conquer your dreams, goals, and live your best life. Goodbye negativity, doubt, procrastination, safety net, delay, obstacles, and set backs. You came to win in 2018! There are so many blessings with your name on it that your arms simply cannot carry them all. You’re going to need your entire mind, body, and soul to carry this load.  God wants you ready and prepared for all the assignments He has just for you. You have to say goodbye to your old self, old thoughts, and habits. They don’t fit this new you in 2018!! Write this down : GOOD-BYE!!

Remember there is always a good in goodbye because God has something bigger and better waiting for you right around the corner. How will you find the good in goodbye in 2018? Leave a comment. Share this blog. Until next time Queens…be blessed!
