In 2020, I hope you release yourself from your own insecurities and fears. I hope you don’t miss out on wonderful opportunities or big breaks just because you’re scared or you don’t feel like you’re enough or you don’t feel like you could make it. I hope you start the new year looking at life differently and looking at yourself differently. I hope this is the year you feel capable of achieving everything you ever wanted and break free from your own mental chains or the chains of the past that keep holding you back.
In 2020, I hope you don’t let others dictate your life. I hope you focus on yourself instead of focusing on ‘what they would think.’ I hope you take back your power from those who aren’t living your life and those who don’t know what’s best for you. I hope this is the year you finally become the writer of your own story from beginning to end. I hope you don’t write it using someone else’s words or through someone else’s lens. I hope this is the year you write your own story authentically; without anyone’s interference or unwanted opinion. I hope this is the year you take your pen back and write everything you’ve always wanted to truly write and I hope you fill your pages with stories of everything you truly wanted to do.
In 2020, I hope you take your heart back from those who couldn’t love you or those who didn’t choose you. I hope you’re not stuck replaying memories or remembering their favorite song or the way they made you feel. I hope you start the new year with them out of your system because if I’m being honest, if they’re not here with you, if they’re not trying to start their new year by your side, if they’re not trying to make up for the things they’ve done, then they don’t deserve another year of you thinking about them, another year of you missing them, another year of you wanting them back.
I hope this is the year you finally understand your worth and what someone would do if they wanted to be in your life. I hope this is the year you stop making excuses for them and start loving yourself the way they never knew how. I hope this is the year your self-love speaks for itself. I hope this is the year you find the kind of love that puts you first and chooses you and appreciates everything you were once judged for. I hope this is the year you don’t get to apologize for your heart or the way you love again.
In 2020, I hope you become the hero of your own story every time life tries to knock you down. I hope you have learned that you are strong and resilient to face the toughest challenges alone. I hope you have learned that you’re soft and kind but you’re not a fool for anyone. I hope you have learned that you’re perfectly fine with being on your own if you’re not valued or respected or appreciated.
I hope this is the year you begin and end the story on a happy note; a note that includes you overcoming challenges, finding your passion, finding yourself, getting closer to your dreams but most of all, I hope you surprise yourself by going further than you ever imagined and by being everything you once thought you’d never be. I hope this is the year for you. I hope this is the year you shine brighter than any other year.
