At the beginning of a new year, well sometimes at the beginning of a new anything, we tend to speed up, avert our eyes and move swiftly past reflection toward what we hope will be a better experience. If we do spend some quiet time alone (or time with girlfriends over wine or ice cream) the human in ustends to look back over the thing we just finished, a relationship/job/diet/year, and highlight what went wrong.
“I kept saying I wouldn’t go back, but I did… I wouldn’t be in this situation if I’d spoken up… I just felt stuck all year… I knew what to do but didn’t do it… Why am I starting off the year broke again? Yep I tried that diet too, kind of.”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that we should be in denial. However, I guarantee you’ve already beat yourself up about those things once, if not 10 times already! Allow yourself to heal from the wounds these situations have caused and the reopening of flesh from the harsh words said to you, by you.
I’m encouraging the divine in you to consider reflecting on your past year in the following ways:
What did I learn last year?
What opportunities were offered to me (whether I accepted or not)?
What am I grateful for?
In what ways was I a BADASS? or those of you who don’t have a potty-mouth like me, In what ways did I SLAY?
When did I show up as the best version of myself?
What were the joy-filled, funniest or fun moments of 2018?
Sit a moment in stillness, pull out a pen and paper (or prepare to type) and come up with 3 to 10 things for each. Yes you will be able to! I’d love for you to leave a comment below or share in the Powerhouse Women Rising group.
As I write this, the Golden State Warriors are balling in their first NBA Finals game in 40 years.
Are you kidding me? That is what I call a dream realized! Even if you aren’t a basketball or Warriors fan, we can applaud the manifestation of that 40 year vision.
Speaking of working toward dreams, I am so grateful and proud of everyone who did their Dreamwork! I received so many emails and comments about the various ways people used the Elevate tool in the video last week. I hope you are inspired and ready to do more because I have another piece of Dreamwork ready and waiting for you 🙂 Check out the video:
Dreamwork – Gratitude on HIGH!
Here’s what I’d love you to do:
Choose a time of day to record your Gratitude on HIGH: morning, noon or night
Decide whether you will record it through writing, audio recording or speaking it aloud to another person.
Answer these 3 questions: What in my past am I thankful for and why (could be yesterday or a decade ago)?
What am I thankful for RIGHT NOW in this moment and why (get present)?
What am I thankful for that I or someone else has done that will effect my future and why (what actions, attitude shifts, world happenings)?
ELEVATE your gratitude for 3 days
Leave a comment letting me know how it went!
