In a world surrounded by so much hatred, suffering and corruption, it can be very easy to allow your mind to be enveloped by negative thoughts.
Whilst it is indeed true that our world is filled with evil, we should never forget that there are also many positive and wonderful things in this world.
Particularly as of late, I have seen many people very concerned and worried regarding the current USA/Iran drama. Many even speculate that this may lead to World War III.
Although it is important to be prepared for the worst, it is equally as important not to waste your life.
There is absolutely no point in stressing yourself out over something that 'could' happen, because a vast majority of the time, the outcome is never anywhere near as bad as you fear it to be.
I myself have suffered a lot from over-thinking things, your mind is a powerful thing and can easily create problems that don't even exist.
You might be a very anxious person, and constantly worry about what people think about your appearance, but the reality is that most people simply don't care.
One thing I encourage you all to do, is to make this new decade the best one you'll ever have.
Slowly ease yourself out of your comfort zone, once you see that things aren't as bad as you fear, you will stop worrying and your confidence will grow.
Want to get in shape? Want to visit that one country you've always wanted to? Want to quit smoking?
Whatever it is that you want to do, you can make it happen if you put your mind to it! And it only gets easier and easier the more progression you make.
I'd like to remind each and every one of you reading this that regardless of what religious beliefs you may have, we only get one opportunity to live the life that we have.
Don't let the years pass you by, as your dreams and ambitions become further and further out of reach, pursue them this year! Make this not only a year to remember, but a decade to remember!
Remind yourself that we all die in the end; It's inevitable. So we may as well make the most of what time we do have and make each day count.
Don't let yourself get down and depressed over the small things, pick yourself right back up and make the changes that you need to make.
Make the most out of your life, even if it's just trying that one thing that you've always wanted to try, go for it; you have nothing to lose!
Sending positive vibes and all of my love to those of you struggling, things will get better, but only you can make the effort to make them better.
I believe in all of you, and I wish you a lucky and happy new decade.
