As 2017 comes to a close, and you are deep into the hustle and bustle of the holidays…wondering if you should put together a plan for 2018, since New Year’s Resolutions are not going to make themselves.
I would like you to consider another option: Don’t make resolutions. None.
Quite often we resolve to achieve goals/dreams that maybe, just maybe, don’t belong to US!
Sometimes we resolve to be, or to do, in order to please others…well, in order to earn the love/validation of others. This isn’t always bad, but for some people it can be crippling.
Why not use this new year, this fresh start to go back to basics…back to your soul?
Instead making a list of New Year’s Resolutions, I would suggest you complete this sentence instead:
I AM _______________
If you saw our Freedom Friday post this week, you will know that my sentence for 2018 is I AM COURAGEOUS.
Other than writing this one sentence I suggest that you do nothing else for the first week of January. Yup, nothing else.
Instead turn inward to see how this sentence FEELS to you.
Once you know it feels right, then focus on this and only this for January. Put it in your day timer, set up an automatic reminder in your smart phone, put it on a post-it and put it on your bathroom mirror or put on your fridge.
You will experience magic unfold. Your soul will speak to you. It will guide you, correct you, inspire you to be everything that sentence means to you and more.
You will find yourself leaving behind all the things, situations, and perhaps even people that are no longer in alignment with your soul, with your true self, with your Inner Champion.
Decide now, to make 2018 all about you – the REAL you. The one that wants to scream to the world…I AM ______________.
What are you? I would love to know what you choose.
Blessings for a wonderful new year,
