HAPPY NEW YEAR, new decade and for me, the start of my 30s. I’d like to think that all of the above could at the very least look like my vision – 20/20. The year almost asks for it right?!
Who knows when or if I’ll need glasses, contacts, or an assist with reading (or reading into) something by a family member or friend. For now though, I’ll enjoy the view, and even better, close my eyes and picture what’s ahead.
I’ve been listening to an audio book called “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” (highly recommend). And for a type A, semi-control freak like myself, it’s exactly what I needed to hear. Yes, I have to let go … a lot of things are simply (or not so simply) out of my control. But, I also have the power to manifest a fair amount of my future.
In many ways, I’ve put myself in a bit of a “box” over the past couple of years – especially since becoming a mommy. I’ve given myself parameters of what is possible and what is not. I don’t know if you can relate to this, but it seems like the older I get, the smaller said box becomes.
Of course, with age comes bigger “adulting” responsibilities, and I am not complaining for a second because I really DO feel exceptionally lucky for this new mom life.
That being said, as far as the NON-mom related stuff, i.e. the self-inflicted “boxlike” limitations, I’m challenging myself (and you!) to stand up, get out, throw the darn thing away (okay, recycle it), and see what’s waiting for you on the other side.
For me? I want “I Can, I Will, I DO!” to become something that I commit to, something that defines me and I’m proud to call my own. It makes me so exceptionally happy to write, connect, host and produce, but for some reason I’ve been denying myself the chance to really DO IT.
… And as for the things I can’t change? As you know, I desperately want another baby, and have heard from so many others of you who do too. It’s not easy to make this one a “resolution” but I guess if I had to, my resolution would be to TRUST the universe here.
I’d love to hear what you want out of the next year, OR TEN. Please send those wishes, hopes and dreams my way. Let’s check them off together, one by one. I know we can and we will if we put our minds to it.
Sending big hugs to you.
P.S. The photo is my first attempt at a homemade vision board. 2020 I’m ready for you!
