It’s been a while since I made an appearance on the blog. Over the last month or so, I have gotten clear on my goals and what I want my life to look like, this year.
Most of us love writing a long list of goals every year. Heck I even wrote a blog post on how to form your goals effectively, that has been one of my most read blog posts. Read it here if you would like to.
But over the last 2 years, as I have grown mentally, spiritually and matured, I have understood that, the way I want to feel on a daily basis is a lot more important than the long to-do list of goals to tick that I come up with each year in January, only to forget about them by February.
Over a couple of years ago, when I read the “The Fire Starter Sessions” by Danielle LaPorte and it really changed my life in so many ways. It allowed me to put to rest the long to-do list and instead start seeing life in a different light. I mean really, how you feel in every moment of your life is how you will live your life.
So last year 2018, for the first time I toyed with using this tool for my year and I came up with 3 words that defined how I wanted my 2018 to feel like.
Ease. Energy. Expansion.
I played with these 3 words throughout 2018 – and my life carried the energy of these words throughout the whole year. I experienced enormous amount of expansion in my spiritual life. I experienced my work and professional life went from being extremely stressful to being one of Ease. My Energy in some areas revealed blocks and I worked through them. Whilst my energy in some areas lightened up.
So I’m sure you are now wondering what my words are for 2019.
You see for me, what I’m craving most in my life right now is Connection.
A question I have been asking myself is “How do I create and feel more connection in my life?”
Connection with my mind, body, in my friendships, with my love life, with nature and Mama Earth, with food, with work, with my passion and life purpose and every other thing that I do with my time here on planet Earth.
I have things to accomplish too. I’m sure if I wrote a list again, it would be a mile long. But at this point in my life, I’m asking myself “How do I do all of the things I want to do with ease and flow?” Like everything just flows from a place of alignment. No kinks in my hose. Flow felt like a good word to describe this feeling. Have you ever felt like your day just flows? There is no striving or effort involved. Things just happen in your favour. That’s the feeling I’m reaching for this year. I’m working on removing resistance as much as possible, flowing with no unnecessary rules for myself.
And last but not the least, how do I thrive in every area of my life? Yes it needs to flow and has ease about how it occurs, but I also intend on thriving with my life. Thrive in whichever area of my life I choose to. Thrive in my body, thrive with my work life, thrive with my passion and purpose, thrive in my friendships and connection with others, thrive in my wealth and so on.
So there you have it. My 3 words that feel good and are my intended state of being for 2019 are:
Thrive. Connection. Flow
Now over to you gorgeous. If you were to pick a word that described your state of being for the year ahead, what would that one (or more) word/s be?
Would love to hear yours!
Until next time,
Lots of love
