New Year, New Me

January 10, 2018

Happy New Year beautiful people! I hope you crossed over to 2018 with all your loved ones and you are now renewed and geared to be a more happier and better person overall. Actually that is what I am hoping for myself this year. In 2018, I choose to be and focus only on things that make me the best version of myself. To be someone who not only appreciates the good but someone who also accepts setbacks and disappoints like a champion. Towards end of 2017 I realised that I did not know how to move on from disappointments. And that did not only affect my productivity and outlook on life, it made me sad and outright “lazy” because I dwelled on the situation more than necessary.
It is unlike me that I do not post any new content for almost a month; on all platforms too. The truth is I was starting to lose myself a little bit. Being in a place where I was not my usual self was foreign to me and I did not like that. I found myself focusing my energy more on things that fell through than being overall a grateful person. Being the analyst that I am professionally, I tried to dissect and analyse the situations to find what could have caused certain opportunities to not materialise. In a nutshell, I basically blamed myself. I forgot that I had accomplished more prior to that which meant that I am good enough. 
The fact that we have become social media beings did not help the situation either. I channeled my energy into what social media was pushing as the norm and forgot that there is life after a setback or outside of social media. Hence after a lot of deliberation with myself, I decided to take a step back and reflect on what was going on. To come up with strategies of how to get myself out of that rut I was seeing myself dwelling in.
It is proven that often than not, it is life and its experiences which teach you better than someone else’s situation. Because no matter how many people tell you to that just pick up pieces of your life and move on from the disappointments; it is actually easy said than done. You can never know just how much of a dent that disappointment has brewed or manifested in negative energy. So no 2 situations are the same!
So where am I now mentally? I am rejuvenated and excited about life and its possibilities again. I am planning my first Europe holiday and I am so excited. I feel like I need a change in environment to encourage some positivity in me. I cannot wait to share the new content with you in the coming weeks. If you are not following me on Instagram yet, my handle is sindisosdiary. I am going to start doing live videos and insta-stories more than ever this year. 
Lastly, if there is content creators and brands following me that would like to collaborate from or around these following cities Paris, Rome, Milan and Barcelona; let me know. I would be happy to set sometime aside for us to work on something.
