Hey peeps! It's been a while and I thought I must start the year off intentional by starting the year as I mean to go on. What a blessing it is to be able to witness and be part of the turn of a new year! I am feeling very grateful to have yet more opportunities to make a difference, inspire others, accomplish something new all whilst embracing anything else that may be in store along this unpredictable journey called life.
Last night I chose to spend NYE in solitude, setting a calm space at home on my comfy sofa, watching the various celebrations and firework displays that were taking place across the globe. Before I finally retired to bed, I had journaled and reflected on all the life-changing events I have gratefully experienced and that have brought me to this point. I asked myself in my role as a Purpose Coach if I were to share some sound advice with you on how I have navigated thus far, what key elements would I choose?. The truth is there are so many and of course, I can't possibly fit them all in one blog. However, what has become glaringly evident to me is that so much can change in the space of a year and if you are not consciously prepared to deal with some of these changes you may well find yourself veering off the road you had chosen to take when the year initially began, as I certainly did!
Can you relate?
So what better way than to share some of the practices that have helped me, one reason is to further reiterate to you how doing so will hopefully assist in making 2022 a great year not only for me but for you too! Out with the old and in with the renewed, is a great mindset to have as we must be willing to let go of people, behaviours and things that no longer serve us. Being open to making some small changes could be the start of a much happier, balanced and more fulfilled life moving forward.
Know your purpose! why are you here? do you have a big goal or something you have wanted to accomplish for some time but can't seem to get the ball rolling? trust me you are not alone, but one thing that has worked for me is asking myself WHY? what is the core reason I want it so much? is it because it's going to have an impact on the greater collective? or is that it is going improve my life or that of my family, whatever the reasons if you find that the answers to these reflective questions are yes, then always do your best to maintain that thought process as much as possible, it will help you to remain more focussed on the improvements that will come about in your life when you have embraced those changes.
Amidst all the chaos that is going on in the world right now, LOVE has been consistent for me in this season, in particular, love of myself, it's important to note that before extending love to others, although many of us have been conditioned to believe that loving self is somehow not a good thing to do, I am here to remind you that, Loving you is so necessary, why? because it can amplify the confidence you need to be YOU wholly. When you are able to truly love YOU, only then are you fully open to the limitless possibilities of letting love lead the way in all that you do.
Focus I am the first to admit that usually at the start of the year my focus is razor-sharp, I have always got my vision board and vision statement on lock and I am ready to go full steam ahead, but then as time goes on that focus can become a little blurred. However, what has really helped me is maintaining a few really good accountability buddies who have lifted me when I was at my lowest, encouraged me, and celebrated with me when I was at my peak. When you identify with a group of people, a community or tribe can help you to remain consistent and help you to show up you are most certainly on the road to success. No man is an island, so therefore no one is truly self-sufficient, at some stage whether we like to admit it or not everyone will need to rely on the comfort or company of others in order to thrive.
Whatever you may be battling with at the start of this year, I want to encourage you all to choose to step into the driver seat of your life, buckle up, and get ready for the ride, I have a sneaky feeling it’s gonna be awesome.
