This year has been such a time of reflection and doing what I said, I
would always do 'some day'.
I've really taken time to decide what I want to dedicate myself to in
the New Year and what I will let go of -- in all areas -- Mentally,
Physically, Spiritually, Career, Fun, Education, Materially, Business
and in my Relationships -- to myself and others.
The past few years, prior to this year, was extremely trying. This
year fortunately has been amazing!
Four years ago, after filming my documentary across the nation, I came
back to Los Angeles and was exposed to toxic mold.
As a kid, I was highly allergic to mold and in my adult life it
almost killed me.
I couldn't have been more excited and at the 'top of my game' then
when I got back after being on the road for 2 1/2 months, traveling
across the nation, 6, 150 miles, with my
two dogs and interviewing some incredibly inspiring people who
had gone through insurmountable obstacles(who knew I would end up living the
theme of my own documentary latter on).
I was so excited about all the people I'd met and what was
happening with the show.
It has pretty much taken all of this time to
recover -- in many areas. I can say, I am on the
upswing and I feel great!
This past year, I've allowed time to reflect and do a
lot of the things I've always wanted to do and thought I'd get to 'some
During this year of EXPERIENCING my life, I came
up with some answers to life, that I would like to share with you.
First, I really get that there is no time to be afraid. Time and
Life go so fast.
Second, If there are things I would love to do in my life, I need to go
ahead and step into the experience 'as if' it is already happening now. I
need to be the me of that experience now. The Universe will and does
find away for my dreams to come to fruition. But, sometimes I need to 'act
as if' first.
Third, I love my clients. I've been so incredible blessed to work
with the most amazing people in my workshops and individually. Thank you for
allowing me to have a glimpse into your life.
Fourth, if there is a desire that I have that is still unfulfilled and
I still feel it knocking on my soul, it is meant to come to fruition.
I still must go for it, even if I feel, it is too late, I've missed the
boat, I don't know enough etc.
Fifth, because of that 'knocking' it is pushing me to heal whatever I
need to heal and step into the full expression of me.
Sixth, I thank my soul for 'the knocking'. It is pulling
me into the new me. Imagine pulling yourself into your future self and
experiencing that future you now -- something to ponder!
Seventh, I've learned the importance of fully expressing myself,
verbally and emotionally -- I'm learning to be
more vulnerable. I see that this tells the Universe what I want in my
life. Speaking my truth is for me. It designs the ethers in
the cosmos and bring me my highest good. If I am hiding, in
any way this gets reflected back to me in my world somehow -- something
Eighth, EVERYONE, I come in contact with is there for me to see myself.
Somehow, they are giving me the opportunity to experience me, who I
am or to bring me an experience in order to evolve.
Ninth, EVERY experience I have, I have called it forth somehow. I've
brought it into my life. The great and the not so great.
Tenth, If I don't 'feel' great, If I feel 'off' -- I need to
get back on track. Either by, journaling, looking at who I'm hanging out
with or asking myself -- Is there an action that I need to take that have
not taken yet?
Eleven, LOVE. Fully, love myself and others. We are all connected.
Twelfth, every seemingly obstacle is an opportunity for
growth. There is always a silver lining. Obstacles are what I see when I am
not fully heartedly FOCUSED on my goal.
Finally, LIVE. Live now. Do whatever it takes to fully experience the
richness of who I am.
Thank you for listening.
