I have been reflecting a lot on the past year. I started the year with the over arching goal of being fully AWARE of myself. Actions, words, tone, thoughts, it was rough. It was eye opening, emotional and raw. 2014 was one of the best years of my life.
The feeling of discovering my strengths, weaknesses, passions, non-negotiables and power feels like I have finally stepped into the sunshine and feel the light and warmth on my body. ALL THE TIME. I love that feeling. I am addicted to that feeling. All the work I have been doing on myself really paid off. Projects were launched and formed lives of their own, I have made positive impacts on people which they tell has changed their lives, I met and now collaborate with incredible people, I am so busy I get so exhausted that sometimes I need to just take a whole day to do nothing and I absolutely love it. I still have a big mouth and don’t know when to shut up, but at least I am aware of that now. I have learned to use said Big Mouth to help people and stand up for those who cannot.
I did a lot wrong in 2014, and instead of ignoring my mistakes, I am examining and learning from them – at least trying to. I am one of those people that needs to learn a lesson over and over until it is almost physically painful for me to REALLY get it. I would much rather be where I am now. Aware, painfully learning and rejoicing in meaningful accomplishments is much better then ignorant bliss, in my opinion.
2015 is scary, awesome and exciting – already. I can’t wait to tackle this year and surpass 2014 in a big way. What did you learn from last year? what are going to DO this year? Tell me. I love you and REALLY love it when you engage in the conversation. Put yourself out there. Tell me what you want for yourself this year. Tell me how you are going to step into the sunshine and become your best self.
