Ringing in the New Year with Release

I'm currently writing to you on the first day of 2019.



I thought it would be important to pause and take a look at everything that 2018 had to offer me.


In 2018 - I learned the following about myself


That I love to write. I knew that before, but forgot. I have recently dove back into the world of writing, and not only does it bring me immense joy - but it's also been incredibly healing and therapeutic for me. It's allowed me to see things within myself that I need to work on adjusting, and it's made me excited to share my story with othersThat I can do anything I set my mind to. My thought patterns in 2018 - seemed to be of how I can't do something. When something new would show up in my life, I would approach it from a sense of anxiety and fear. I finally consciously realised this last year - and now am making a point to shift and try to approach everything with a state of excitment and wonderI can cook (kind of). This is still a work in progress for me. But I have made more of my own meals than I ever have before, although they do tend to variations of the same thingI can provide the answers I'm seeking as long as I take the time to listen - really truly, deeply listen


2018 has been a year of adjustments. I've moved to three different places, started a new job, traveled,  released some habits/thought patterns/beliefs that I needed to let go of, and most importantly really taken time to connect to myself.


So while there have been struggles, challenges, anxieties and fears, I continue to face them. That makes me excited for what's to come in 2019.


I hope this is an amazing year for all of us, and that we truly show up connected to a true sense of who we all are - beautiful and amazing individuals <3

Happy New Year All!
