Though the Google search results were not as conclusive as I had hoped, I feel pretty confident in relaying the idea that showing up is ~80-90% of life.
Taking action is going to look and feel different for every person, and every situation, as we have diverse desires for our lives. As we continue to deepen our relationship with ourself, we'll know without a doubt what action will be right for us. Maybe that's where we start the inquiry - what's the desired outcome?
We learned some things in 2018 that will come with us into the new year, and there are also some things we are going to leave behind.
I do hope that what stays with us is all the work we've done on our relationship with ourselves. All the affirmations we focused on, wrote, lived, and forgot about. All the moments we learned from, and all the self-love we experienced.
I do hope you've taken to heart these affirmations over the last year because I know they have prepared me for the moments: happy, sad, exciting, frustrating, relaxing, overwhelming, and so on...

I have all that I need. Sure, an air-fryer would be cool, but also, I already have an oven that works, it just takes a little more time. Especially right now where my budget needs me to love it where it's at.
I think the more thanks we give, we start to see more to be thankful for.
It is okay to be right where your'e at. It is okay to feel sadness, and it is okay to be annoyed, and then let it go. It is okay to be happy, and it is okay to feel excited! It is okay to talk to someone if you need to.
