Welcome to 2018. Happy New Year!
I probably should have written this 5 days ago. Alas, I have been enjoying the bliss of having nothing to do and dreaming and planning what 2018 is going to look like for me and family. The #selfcare struggle can be so real sometimes. The beautiful things is I have no guilt and no f*cks given - it was truly so freeing and now I feel re-energized, focused and ready to take on this year.
A few sessions ago with my coach, I was able to tap into some energy that was so desperately needed. I connected with my inner Cher Horowitz from Clueless. If you've seen the movie, her unapologetic way of living sums up my 16 year old life (minus the wardrobe and wealth). I knew I needed to summon that energy because I was fighting hard with my judge who constantly says, "What are people going to think of that? Who are you to be sharing your opinion? Shhhhhhh!" Once I found what I was looking for, I told that voice - AS IF!!
All that to say, as this year begins, the words that keep coming up are BOLD and UNAPOLOGETIC. I am entering 2018 like:
And why shouldn't I? This week's session with my coach started with me feeling like I would drop the healthy habits I am so desperately trying to incorporate in my life and go back to boring, feeling like I am not making a difference me. I left the call with an important why - People need me.
That may come off conceited, but get this - I have a unique purpose that I was put on this earth by God to do. That means that my gifts should be used for the people that need my gifts. People actually need what I offer. And the more that I put off putting myself out there, the more that I hide behind "I don't have enough time," or "Who am I to do that cool idea?" or whatever horrible message my saboteur voice(s) are coming up with, the more I am pushing out the blessings that are already ordained for me from the people I am meant to bless.
All this to say that everything finally clicked, and I am finally ready to put myself out there to help provide some clarity to the people I am called to serve. YAY!!!!
So what about you? Who are you ready to be this year?
