New Year hangover or cleanse?

You are probably thinking girl, who you kidding, ain’t nobody cleansing into New Year’s Day! Cheers to all things Holiday; food, friends, family, fun, Jesus and spirits! How will you enter the New Year cleansing or hungover? A couple years ago, I cleansed my diet of gluten due to the advice of my Dr. and also started meditation and exercise along with prayer and faith in God.  With all this new found healthy living which brought good health and energy, every new year since then  I started off the year by creating a vision board and setting intentions of what I wanted to manifest and how I would manifest. Sounds easy, hang the board and done. Not really, part of it I discovered by journaling is a work in progress and realizing the closed doors were detours to better beginnings.  I must say being mindful, purposeful and having faith in my journey has led me to joy. Making my intentions clear, purposeful and manageable, I truly am excited to start the new year not hungover with last year’s I wish or I wonder.  Cleanse yourself of all the I should of, would of and could of and create your 2018 vision. 

Fire into the Balance

Resulotions, hmmm……Well, I resolve to be the best version of me this year.
Resolutions, I feel like are something that is said and repeated, but it’s the action that is put into it to keep the resolve. Like anything, it’s work, but work can be a harsh word, so I like to refer to it as a plan of action. Your  plan is your guide to how you conquer your resolve and yes it’s a learning process. A couple of years ago, I attended a workshop with an awesome facilitator life coach, Christa Tinari. She did a great job teaching us how to map out our vision for the new year and creating tangible goals and habits that would lead to our vision. We created a vision board which for me was so helpful into putting my plan into place.
I thought, it would go like this, my vision is to lose weight and by week 2 I would be on my way. Not that easy. It’s a learning process of changing habits and learning along the way. I am thankful for that vision because it led me to being diagnosed with a gluten intolerance which was a complete roadblock to my vision that I had no idea was there. I am thankful to remove that block and keep going getting closer to my vision by changing habits along the way.
My vision for 2016, drum roll please….it’s a collection of small ideas that I am able to envision due to the fact that I’ve worked hard on creating balance, my vision a couple years ago. I continually work on balance, but finally feel centered which took a lot of time of learning how to say yes and make the time to do what truly matters and sometimes that was saying no. My vision this year is to live fierce without doubt. I have all the tools because of saying yes and no in building balance, but now it’s about breathing fire into the balance and my vision board is envigorating. I have learned that your vision may take a little longer than a year, but that’s ok, we are all making steps to our better selves by keeping our vision in mind. Happy New Year!
