To be quite honest, this new year has brought up some different perspectives and boundaries for me. I have been resistant to writing down my goals for 2017 and I haven't felt that huge... sigh... "it's a new year" feeling.
WHY? Because 2016 was a full year of TRUST and SELF DEVELOPMENT for me. And while I didn't take full notice to it in the moment, some major shifts took place when looking back. I have been setting goals for myself, re-evaluating them and re-working them every single day since January 1, 2016, so what was going to make January 1, 2017 different?
I stepped away from the corporate working world, for the first time in my career, at the end of 2015. I had aspirations and goals to be an incredible mom at-home for my son Camden, to get my [at the time] jewelry business off the ground and to support my yoga students with more offerings and classes...
And then in January, I was immediately given an opportunity to support my health and my family with doTERRA essential oils. I knew I was brought on this earth to do something more... and this fell in line with what I was looking for, so I said "YES" to learning more about doTERRA essential oils and also to the business opportunity that was in front of me. Little did I know that this journey would change my life completely. Little did I know that my insecurities would rear their ugly heads, that I would have to dig deep to find the courage to keep moving forward, that I needed to trust that all my hard work, my belief and my efforts would pay off. Little did I know that I would feel so much reward, growth, empowerment and connection in just a matter of 365 days.
While my family's life has changed since being introduced to doTERRA, that's not what this is about. So what's my point?
My point is that no matter the road we choose to take, we have more than enough tools in our toolkit! We have more power and strength than we give ourselves credit for. Our journey doesn't begin or end with a new year - it only deepens, shifts, and changes. Trust that you ARE enough and you will be. Tell yourself that you CAN do something and you will.
This year - I choose JOY!
