This is the time of year where we began to look at the goals we set at the new year and feel like we have hit a plateau, are not were we thought we would be or maybe we haven’t even started.
We push for perfection and in doing that, we procrastinate even starting. We judge the harvest we are reaping as not “good enough” or because it is just “good enough” it is not enough.
So we keep putting off our dreams, set our goals aside for another day.
Today, let’s recognize that the seeds we take the time to plant matter. Good enough and done is better than waiting for perfection.
I have really struggled with my focus lately and have been setting my goals and dreams aside, as I am struggling to get balance in my life.
So, today I will start to plant the seeds again. Meditate on my dreams, show gratitude for all I am blessed with and do the work, even if it is not perfect. Good enough can become excellent. Nothing remains nothing.
Wishing you a beautiful day full of new seeds to plant and a harvest full of creative, positive energy to propel your dreams forward.
New year, new decade, time to reset and refocus.
A couple years ago instead of a goal, I picked a word to shape the year.
First was gratitude. I made it a daily practice. I wrote in a gratitude journal each day, meditated on the words grateful and thankful in yoga class and it really helped me reshape who I am.
Last year was elevate. Every class I taught, every opportunity to go the next level, I looked for ways to elevate. I still keep coming back to kindness and being thankful.
It did help me push. I posted workout videos, which I am very shy about I did it. I started looking for my voice on the blog and what I wanted to share with people.
This year is Give. I watched a video on Instagram about non-attachment and giving. It really spoke to me. This year my youngest is moving out and the concept of non-attachment really spoke to me. More than that, I started a couple days ago, meditating on it class when stretching, in the morning as my morning meditation
One of my struggles when I encounter someone with negative energy or is judgemental, is how to combat that energy and turn it into a positive.
The concept of Give is helping me with that. Giving space for people to express themselves or just be themselves.
It is helping me as well. Instead of getting overwhelmed by chores and to do lists. I am giving myself the gift of a clean house, or clean laundry or a slightly clean car. Time to write, time to give myself space to create.
Also, to give without fear. I do believe in the law of attraction, being positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative, in it’s most simple form. But, some areas in life still give me stress. Money is a big one. Believing in attracting money has been great and I am so grateful. So may opportunities have come my way and I have I been busy teaching and this year having money to share has been a huge blessing.
Now, it’s time for the next level, to give. Knowing that what I give will come back 3x. It is true of love, friendship, kindness….and money.
I am excited and ready for the year of Give. Please share your word of the year below.
