The Next Chapter Of Your Life Is About You, It’s Not About Anybody Else

The next chapter of your life is about your own well-being. It’s the beginning of a new year and hopefully a chance to start over, a chance to let go of certain parts of the past and a chance to focus on who you want to be and what kind of life you want to be living.

The next chapter of your life is about your heart. It’s time to heal it, it’s time to take it back from those who broke it and it’s time to collect all the scattered bits and pieces that were lost somehow with the wrong ones and make yours whole again because your heart is still strong and beating and it needs to remember how to be loved.

The next chapter of your life is about your mind. Your complex and limitless mind. It’s time to start thinking that you can instead of you can’t, it’s time to start saying that you deserve it instead of doubting yourself. It’s time to stop settling for thoughts that belittle you and stops you from moving forward and it’s time to replace them with thoughts that empower you and thoughts that tell you that you’re capable of making your life better.

The next chapter of your life is about your soul. It’s time to bring peace back to it, it’s time to nourish it and if you haven’t already, it’s time to find it. It’s time to be still and quiet with your thoughts and not fear them, it’s time to sit in silence by yourself and not feel weird about it and it’s time to go to places and be with people who make your soul happy, things that make you glow and things that heal the pain you feel inside when your soul is broken.

The next chapter of your life is about rewriting your story. It’s time to break the same old toxic patterns whether in your work life or your love life, it’s time to let go of the bad habits that have hindered you from living your life, it’s time to make a comeback if you’ve been hiding and it’s time to shine if you’ve been avoiding the light. It’s time to write yourself as a hero not a victim.

The next chapter of your life is about you because you’ve been trying to be so many things and please so many people that you’ve forgotten who you are and where you belong.

The next chapter of your life is about finding yourself and that doesn’t mean that you have to alienate people or spend all your nights alone, you can let as many people as you want in, as long as you’re the one holding the pen.  Thought Catalog Logo Mark
