As we come to the end of 2017 and we are awaiting the arrival of 2018, it is important that we take a moment to reflect on what this year has taught us and how much we have grown within the year, also I feel we need to be ready and prepared to move forward for the things to come for the coming year.

Now that the year is over (within six days from this post), what are the changes that you have made to yourself mentally and to your life positively that brought you steps closer to inner peace, happiness and success? did you learn how to LET GO, releasing the negativity that had you consumed, did you get rid of all the toxins in your life, did you get rid of certain fears, did you act on your goals and most importantly did you better learn who you are and love yourself more everyday? Whatever our situations were in 2017 we must take something from them to help us move forward, the lessons learned must help us to grow and do better for ourselves and life so that we can get the happiness that is waiting for us to claim.

Over the past year of 2017 Andrea Motivates has been growing right along with you, I talked a lot about self love, motivating yourself, letting go of negativity and toxins, and overcoming fears. I focused on these types of topics mostly because 1: I was experiencing these transitions in my own personal life and 2: I felt there are a lot of people out there that find themselves stuck in areas of their life and need help with productively making the positive changes that they may need to get unstuck and begin to live life again. 2017 has taught me patience, confidence, more self love for myself and letting go of toxic situations and people. In 2017 I believed in myself more and I wrote my second book Let It Go: Releasing Negativity To gain Inner Peace, Positivity and Success which is doing great. In 2018 I plan to continue to grow into a better life and focus more on the types of actions that I want to take with better understanding that the actions that I make has to take me higher and closer to the life and lifestyle that I want and deserve for myself and family, which means I have to get procrastination completely out of my life, socialize a bit more, and focus more on my end results for my happiness.

Andrea Motivates in 2018 will reflect that as well, with lots more solid actions. If you have been following me for some time then you know I’ve always say I’m on the same journey as most of you, figuring life out and living life more peacefully, positively, abundantly and successfully. In 2018 I will be adding videos to the blog as well as a podcast show, I also will be working on my third book. I have so many ideas and I believe in myself to manifest them into existence. Thank you to all of you that has been keeping up with Andrea Motivates the blog and following me on my social media, all of your likes and comments are so sweet and encouraging.

I pray you all have learned something from 2017 to help you move forward into 2018 and more importantly move forward in your life, and if the past year didn’t provide you with the changes that you wanted or needed, I hope you can look at the coming year to start to reevaluate your life and figure out the things that can be better, it is not to late to start to take actions to obtain the changes you want. Everyday is a blessing to wake up and begin a new clean slate in your life and a new year should be looked at as the results to your efforts of those days and push you closer to your happiness, inner peace and the life you deserve.

As always change starts with you, if you want better do the things that it will take to get you better, it’s all up to you.

May your 2018 be filled with an abundance of joy, peace, love, success and positive actions.
