I’ve noticed more positive changes even from last year. Nicer people have entered my life! Working with different people that are more positive. Seeing more team work, with the people I work with. People’s confidence coming up. Seeing less jerks enter my life. All in all, I’m definitely liking this year even more than last year. Last year, I saw more progress than I did in the year before and the year before that.
Each year, I am seeing more lasting changes take hold longer and longer. People that aren’t in alignment with who I am are leaving or being moved around. I’m actually enjoying the different types of work that I do more and more. I have people around me that respect and appreciate the value I add. I’m in a really good place. I am standing up for myself more and more and honoring those things about myself that come very naturally to me and not trying to fit into a mold that is just not me.
I’ve never been a people pleaser and I’m embracing that about myself. I’m not being judged by other people. I’m being more and more true to myself. I’m embracing my directness, instead of trying to figure out what people that beat around the bush mean. I ask them directly and ask them to be direct when they are speaking with me since that is my true communication style. It avoids a lot of misunderstandings and hurt feeling for the other person.
Sometimes it’s good to take a measure of your life to see what’s working and getting better and what is just not working.
