2017 is right around the corner and it is your time to shine!
2016 had so many great additions, but a lot of detours. And it's okay to not have everything going according to plan, but what happens when those detours become your nightmares and you become uninspired and hopeless?
I'm feeling this way to an extent and I know I can't be the only one. Right?!
So, let's get to it, shall we?
How do you want to shape 2017 to reflect your goals and desires?
What happens when it blows up in your face?
What can you do to ensure you are optimizing your time and energy correctly?
The most important reflection of all is how you handled what 2016 gave to you.
Reflection is a beautiful way for us to look at our flaws and reactions in a loving way and move forward and learn from them.
There's a difference between thinking your acknowledging your behaviors and actually acknowledging them.
My tip: Make time for yourself and you only. Alone, in your favorite space, with nowhere to go. Just you, your soul, and desires.
After the reflection period, how ever long that may be, is the ACTION!
You've observed, acknowledged, and reflected- what are you going to do with that info now?
Make a plan and write it down. Better yet, say it loud and proud.
Start with one way you can improve and utilize your energy for your greater good and increase one intention/goal/desire a week.
My biggest mistake is thinking too big.
Focus on now and see where it takes you.
You're in action so now we gotta stick to the routine.
In my opinion, routines are hard as f**k to stick too because, well, LIFE.
That is the beauty of the journey.
Sticking to a routine doesn't have to be hard or take up an hour. It can be a 15 minute ritual to start your day, follow through on your goals, or turn your energy to making the best of every single second.
I recommend movement (any kind), sitting in silence for 3-5 minutes, journaling and reading an inspirational piece or two.
Nothing fancy extravagant.
And, let go of all expectations! No room for that here, friends. Let your days flow along.
If you need a bit of inspo, or writing prompts, here are some of my best "get the juices going" questions:
These have been written through, marked through, crumpled up, and everything in between the past couple of days, so let me know what works for you!
This 2017 I plan to focus my energy on what I am meant to do- help others through the teaching of yoga.
Do you know what you want to achieve this year?
Please, don't let fear hold you back! You can do and be anything you want. Ditch what everyone thinks you should do and listen to that voice inside of you. It's there, if you only quiet enough to hear it. You are here to make a difference, never shrink yourself.
