As the page turns, I feel lighter. I feel restored and transformed. I am at a pivotal place in my life. A place that seems a bit surreal. I guess because for a long time I never really thought that I could be where I am today. I am dancing with destiny. I am love. I am experiencing love in every aspect of my life and I am forever grateful. Just years prior I was in a very dark and gloomy place. I was dealing with a painful breakup, loss of friends, depression and overall life transitions. I was terrified of what was to come of the future because everything ahead seemed dark. It was like a dark cloud hovered over my life. Ironically, the more focused I became the more I healed. The more healing that occurred the more I grew and understood the reasoning behind why I went through all that I went through. I don’t live in expectancy of what is to come any longer. I live to embrace everything no matter what it is.
2016 had its pits and peaks. I can’t really harbor on the pits because despite how bad things got, growth and perseverance came from those bad experiences. I spent this entire year discovering who I am on a deeper level and falling immensely in love with me, my life and everyone in it. As time progressed the Universe just began to make a way. Incredible things began to happen. Life began to look and feel different. My biggest advice to you for the coming year is to fall in love with the process. Fall in love with your life despite how confusing, dark and unpredictable it may seem. There is always, always light at the end of the tunnel. I just created love in and around me. From there, my life took a whole new direction that was unexpected but well needed. Ignore the destination. Ignore where you’re headed but pay attention to signs and lessons along the way.If you’re distracted by the destination, you miss the opportunity to be transformed by the lessons sent to you along the way on your journey. Take in the process because it’s honestly what’s molding you into a new you.
In 2016 I learned to leave the past in the past in order to move forward to brighter days. I’ve learned that death is a gift. Death is imminent. Death is a symbolization of new beginnings. I welcomed death in every aspect this year. I’ve learned that people are just that, people. We can live our lives counting on them. We can live in expectancy of external forces to fill us in places that we avoid or we can choose to not give our power away. We always have the freewill to choose ourselves by not giving others room to shape how we see, think or feel about ourselves or life in general. Take your power back in 2017. Stop letting what happened determine your strength or the fate of your tomorrow. Life is 10% of what you do or what has been done to you. The other 90% I believe is really based on your perspective and how you view and handle what has happened to you. How are you viewing what happened? Are you wallowing in your pain and sorrows? Are you immediately forgiving and moving on? Are you harboring onto the pain that others caused? Are you unforgiving of mistakes, holding grudges? Take account of it all because all of this determines how your days are shaped. I took a lot of random vacations this year. I told God and Universe it was what I wanted and it happened. Traveling this year taught me freedom. It has taught me to expect the unexpected and that life truly comes full circle.
The more I focused on the woman I wanted to become I became her. I am at this deep level of love and appreciation for self. So much so, I deeply love and appreciate the world and life in a way that I never have. I feel on such a deep and intense level. I’ve been a magnet for all things that are in support of my highest good. I’ve been working my ass off to serve the world through my creativity. The blog grew in more ways than I could even imagined. I rebranded and set goals for myself. I completed my fourth book. And although I am still editing it, I know what’s to come of this completion in the coming year. I became an award winning blogger and sealed deals that have yet to manifest fully, but most certainly will in the year to come. I just see so much growth. I fought to become all of who I am. I am grateful for the people in my life who are constantly guiding me and inspiring me to seek better, do better and be better. I am dancing with possibilities. I realized that what I accept or act on I no longer have to chase, it’ll be right there when I am ready to receive it. Because what my heart is seeking is seeking me.
Earlier in last year I had a dream that I was pregnant. I had to have been about 7 or 8 months along in my pregnancy. I was at a maternity shoot and the only people around were friends. I was smiling and happy. I woke up from that dream knowing that at any moment I was preparing to give birth to my vision soon. A few months ago I dreamt I gave birth to a pink lotus. The coming year is the year of that manifestation of all things I’ve created and given birth to will come to life. This is the year that what I’ve worked so hard to create will soon give me the joy and life that I have always dreamt of. I believe and receive that. I am forever blessed and thankful for all that has occurred in this year, good and bad. Who I was at the start of 2016 is not who I am as I the page turns and I say goodbye. I have transformed. I have died and been born anew. I know just how much this year has taught me. I know the feeling of snatching my happiness back. I know the feeling of learning who I am, learning how powerful I am and standing in that power and truth. The feeling of taking my control back over life will forever be embedded in me. I stand before the world reemerged as the true Goddess that I am, ready to embark on this new phase of my life. I wish you all a year of success, blessings, growth, prosperity, love and light. You all are divinely blessed and are such a blessing and great addition to my life. I love each and every one of you. Have a Happy and Safe New Year. See you all in 2017!
Be Inspired. Be Encouraged. Be Blessed.
