I am writing this blog post during a perfect time of year for me. My kiddos are away with their dad for a week which means the house is quiet. Meditation music is playing. Candles are lit. My yoga mat is in the middle of the floor. Pure bliss!!
Well, today is the first day of a 3 day detox that I am embarking on as I prepare my mind and body for the new year. This is an ideal time to lay the foundation for transformational experiences in 2017.
The first half of my year did not a reflect what I had set my intentions on as I prepared for this year. I spent the first half of the year physically and mentally recovering from two car crashes. In the meantime, I was still making sure I was moving in the direction of my dreams – to travel more. And I did just that. In August I was in Puerto Rico. By October, I was on a cruise in the Bahamas. I spent Thanksgiving in Orlando and Christmas in Savannah. Lovely! This is exactly what I wanted my life to look like. So despite the unexpected life disruptions, I would have to say that the year turned out just perfect. So, from this experience, I learned that disruptions are a part of life and to simply keep moving in the direction of my dreams.
So, as I look toward a new year, I will be very mindful to focus on some very important things.
- I will continue to look at various life situations and experiences with a different perspective. Instead of focusing on one single aspect of a situation, I will look at varying aspects for understanding and growth.
- I will continue to share my gifts with the world through writing using my authentic voice.
- I will continue to set healthy boundaries in my personal and professional relationships. At the same time, I will nurture the relationships with those I choose to surround myself with.
Since I see my life as a beautiful journey, I do not have any unique goals that I need to identify as I move into 2017. My personal and professional goals have not changed at all. I will continue to move in the direction of my dreams. Health, wealth and love are the core elements of my dreams and goals and I will embrace experiences that are a reflection of my heart’s desire. Here’s to 2017! May it be a reflection of the power and beauty of life. Namasté
