Jan 29 – What’s winning … fear or future? How are you showing up each day to embrace your most desired hopes and dreams? Do you have a plan of action that keeps you focused on small steps to get you there? Are you making these steps a priority each and every day? Are you stepping outside of your comfort zone to learn, grow, connect and evolve? How you are showing up is evident in your actions. If you are busy doing a myriad of things, none of which are propelling your towards your ultimate desires, then it is time to understand why you are holding yourself back.
Jan 22 - Need to say "yes" to yourself? Are you feeling pressure from all fronts and it seems there isn’t enough time to breathe, let alone take a break? Are you swamped with obligations and deadlines and feel your focus cannot waver, even for a moment? Are you loving all that is being thrown at you, while at the same time, not stopping to smell the roses to celebrate all that you have accomplished? When you feel all tied up in knots, whether it is good or bad stress, it is your body telling you to simply say yes to a moment of peace, rest, relaxation, enjoyment, solitude, music, journaling, meditation, lunch with a dear friend, a walk in nature, or whatever will help you destress just a little.
Jan 15 – Are you caught between either or? Are you considering two different options or directions to proceed, and you don’t really like either one of them? Are you feeling frustrated by feeling as though you need to choose one or the other, and yet neither are desirable? When you are faced with a situation or circumstance that is not ideal, you still need to focus upon what is ideal. Your ability to create what is ideal rests within your willingness to see beyond, think beyond and stretch beyond.
Jan 8 – Are you craving fulfillment? Are you feeling lackluster about your current life or the work you are doing? Even with resolutions you have made, are you feeling as though something is still missing and you cannot pinpoint what? Are you wanting to do something entirely different, yet have no idea what it could be? Are you feeling tied down or stuck where you currently are in your life? You are here for a reason. A powerful, life-changing one. Whether it is to have an impact on one life or many lives, you have within you a seed of inspiration or hope for someone who needs to plant it. If you a craving more fulfillment, start with getting to know yourself at a deeper level. And once you break through and resurface, you will find a pathway to fulfillment that leads you exactly where you were meant to be.
Jan 1 – Ready to take that LEAP? Do you realize what a gift today represents? A new year? A new decade? An extra day in this year to do, be and embrace? You have what it takes to make this unlike any decade that you have experienced before. Choose to Love more than ever … Choose to Experience more than ever …. Choose to Appreciate every bumpy and beautiful moment … Choose to Pursue your heart’s desires. Most important of all as you LEAP into this new year and decade, choose to be YOU.
Dec 25 – Are you reflecting forward? As this decade nears its end, are you relishing in all that you have accomplished or lamenting about all that you wished could have been or haven’t achieved? Are you counting your blessings or counting your mistakes? Being mired in the past from a perspective of lack or limitation will only reinforce what you don’t want instead of what you do want. Treasure your experiences for what they brought you insights. Embrace what went right with renewed focus on replicating those successes in profound and empowering ways.
Dec 18 - Are you busy or actively engaged? Is everything that you are busy doing moving your most desired wants and goals forward? Or is what is keeping you busy distracting you from what you truly want and desire? There is a difference between being busy and being actively engaged in one’s life. When you are actively engaged, you are intentional and purposeful in every action that you take and decision that you make for yourself and on behalf of others. You are making choices even in response to others’ requests versus just doing what others expect or want you to be doing.
Dec 11 – Is what’s outside dictating what’s inside? Are you dealing with situations that are out of your control to correct or influence? Are you frustrated by what is occurring around you or what feels like is occurring TO you? Instead of allowing everything that is happening outside of you to dictate how you are feeling on the inside, allow your own strength from deep within to surface and propel you forward.
Dec 4 – Is it time to stop wishing? Are you wishing things could be different or would happen faster or more easily? Does it feel as though you are always just out of reach of where you want to be? This wishful way of thinking could be the problem. Think back to your childhood and how wishes came true through the magic of a fairy godmother or genie. We have been conditioned to believe that wishes being granted are out of our control from a very young age. However, what you desire and truly want in your life should not be viewed as a wish, but what it actually is … a desire … a goal. Once you stop wishing and start giving yourself the power you have within you to achieve it, you are now embracing the power of HOPE.
