My word or theme for the year was GROWTH. I’m a student of life and am always committed to personal growth – but this year I was especially interested in growing my business and expanding my vision for what could be.
In this year, I have honored my intuition. The more I learn how to trust my gut and follow my heart the better off I am for it.
Because of this year, I now believe that we only receive what we can handle, in due time. I’m incredibly impatient by nature but I’m learning to trust that all great things need plenty of incubation and nurturing in order to grow into something sustainable, abundant, and autonomous.
To reflect on my year, I will bring a halt to the daily grind, schedule less meetings, and take the time to look at how far I’ve come.
In 2017, I will remember that the process is the reward. Your goals mean shit if you feel like shit along the way – so in 2017 I am going to be more committed to expanding my capacity for joy by only saying yes to the things that really feel worth it.
