Today is my birthday. On this birth-day, in this moment and with intention, stepping into this year, I am feeling grounded, supported, fortified with faith and believe in my next steps in my family, my business, my friendships, my voice, and how I show up in the world.
I believe in my unlimited potential and I believe that all of the work I have been doing to center myself, care for myself, and go within are starting to show me the results of my efforts and intentions. Often when we begin the work, I find that the result doesn’t look like much. Causing us to feel discouraged or doubt that we are on the right path. But it is through the right efforts, consistently over time that we get the results of that we want.
To know what those right efforts are is to start to clear the chatter in our mind, begin to learn how to listen to your inner guide–our intuition. And to do that, we must create space in our lives to start listening to ourselves. Just start asking ourselves the questions we need in order to grow.
In the last few weeks, I’ve been asked about some of my next steps. Interestingly enough, and for the first time, I am not pressuring myself to have the exact answer, right at this very moment. Instead, even without asking myself (and I believe it’s because I have been doing the internal work) I have a trust, faith, and almost eagerness of letting the answers unfold for me. Not without effort on my part but instead a trusting that everything is happening for me.
Think about the rosy-cheeked, head full of curls little girl you once were. What would she say to you today? What were the things she always wanted to have? Would you treat her like you treat yourself now?
Do what makes you happy. It’s as simple as that.
As I step into this year, I hope to continue practicing compassion for myself and family first, knowing that it is the only way I can give it to anyone else. And that through this grounding, there will be a faith and fearlessness that will arise and fortify me in doing the work I am meant to do.
