Happy Monday and Happy 2018, friends! I hope you all rang in the new year safely and surrounded by love. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out what words of wisdom or advice I could share that hasn’t already been said about how we can be more purposeful with each new year, and I can’t help but wonder what you’re hoping for in 2018? Is this another “New Year, New Me” personal promise? Maybe you’ve mapped out your goals for the year and have created a beautiful vision board? Perhaps you realized today is also a supermoon, so you set some serious intentions and followed specific rituals? Did you clean your house? Smudge your space with sage or incense to rid each room of negative energy and make way for positivity? Created a habit tracker in your bullet journal to make sure you reach your goals? Severed ties with people who don’t deserve you? Practiced yoga and meditation for reflection? Ate some greens for prosperity and black-eyed peas for luck? Or maybe 2017 was so rotten, you’re just excited for this fresh start and did all of the above? (I know I did!)
Whatever you did or didn’t do to prepare for 2018, my hope is simply this: that you make the very best of it. Discover what matters most to you and cultivate it. You are already equipped to conquer whatever mountain stands before you, and quite often we’re the ones who are in our own way. It’s absolutely easier said than done, but it’s worth it to put forth the effort to step aside and create the life we want. I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be incredible, and I wish nothing more than peace, love, joy, and prosperity for us all. I’m sure that, like 2017, it will also bring with it a few challenges. I hope that you will shift your perspective and see those challenges as lessons that help catapult you to greater heights and deeper depths of understanding. Let us be grateful for the good and the bad for both shape us into the incredible beings we already are. The world is too big and life is too short to dwell on the past or resolve ourselves to a life that doesn’t make us happy filled with people who do us wrong. You’re worth it and you deserve nothing less than the very best. Let’s make the very best come to fruition in 2018!
