Happy 2019 my fellow earth travelers! 🌎 ❤️
A new year means we get to start fresh, re-align with what we truly desire, get clear on what we really want and re-commit to ourselves.
Which means inevitably we will experience growth this year.
Growth is a good thing.
And also, growth doesn’t always feel good.
Growth can sometimes feel like sadness, depression, chaos and upheaval.
The more aware we become of our thoughts and actions, the more we will notice things about ourselves we don’t necessarily like. Self-awareness can bring on a lot of emotions, such as depression and/ or sadness.
We may be tempted to judge ourselves and criticize where we are.
“I thought I was over this…” or “I thought I was further along…” may be thoughts that come to mind.
Despite wanting to label these as negative and judging how we feel, we can acknowledge how we feel and accept it for what it is: growth. 🌱
When I was a little girl I would I watch my grandmother “deadhead” her hollyhock flowers that grew so beautifully in her garden. It looked like she was hurting the flowers as she quickly snapped the heads off of the wilted purple blooms. My grandmother explained how she wasn’t hurting the flower but instead she was making room for more flowers to grow and bloom.
We are like flowers who need deadheading. Our wilted blooms are the ways we stay locked in to situations and relationships that don’t serve our highest good.
This time of year is a great time to look at our relationships and situations we have in our lives from a broader perspective and to remind ourselves that everything has the ability to be transformed. ⭐️🙌
When we take an honest inventory of the many aspects of our life and see what we would like to be different in love, career, finances, relationships, etc., we can then ask ourselves:
“is it me that needs to change?” 🧐
Maybe it’s our commitment to the drama or victimization that keeps us in the loop we don’t really want to be in. Instead of judging the new awareness of ourselves, we can choose to accept that it is there. With acceptance comes the ability for release.
While it may seem like we are taking two steps backward, acknowledging what we have been holding onto that no longer serves us is a beautiful way to make room for something new to grow in its place.
As we start the new year, give yourself room to grow.
When something comes to light in your life, be kind with yourself, acknowledge it, accept it, then allow it to be released. While it may not be easy, it is an important part of allowing what we truly want in our lives to manifest.
I look forward to working with you this year and seeing all of the amazing things 2019 has in store for you! 🎉
With so much love, ❤️
