Happy Friday all. To celebrate taking action this week, I encourage you to share with someone you trust, something you are proud of and accomplished this week. Speaking our dreams out loud makes them more real. Let someone you care about celebrate the journey with you.
As we take action this week to move towards our goals and dreams, take a moment today to appreciate how far you have come already. For all the lessons learned and the beautiful life you have already created.
Moving from a place of humble gratitude allows us to truly appreciate the blessings we have already received and opens us up to continue manifesting the life of our dreams.
For this Wellness Wednesday I want to talk about the importance of postive thinking. As we work towards our goals this week, it is easy to begin to doubt ourselves. The first place we find success is within ourselves. Take some time today to meditate, journal, sit with a cup of coffee or tea and allow yourself to feel gratitude for all lessons you are learning. Every challenge and every victory is for us. To help us grow, learn and reach our higher selves.
When working on a dream or goal, the first place it comes true is in your mind. In your belief that you can accomplish it. That you will live the life of your dreams. Create so much abundance that it spills out and uplifts others to believe in their dreams.
A few years ago, instead of setting resolutions, I picked a word to focus on. To shape my year. The last 2 years it has been abundance. Not just financial but love, happiness, connections. For my marriage, for my family.
With this move across the country and the new adventure my husband and I are on, as I meditate and reflect, I feel strongly that I am connecting to my purpose.
I have raised 3 amazing kids who are happy and healthy, and have 3 grandkids who have all the love and support any child could want or need.
I have been fortunate that my work in the world to provide for my family has always been fulfilling and I have truly enjoyed the connections I have made and the small difference I have made in the life of others through my work.
I am at a place where I feel all that I have learned, all the things I have been passionate about are coming together.
This coming year is about being intentional. In my marriage, in my connection with family and friends, in how I spend my time, and how I make a difference in the world and community around me. To be connected and aligned to my purpose through being intentional with my day to day habits and interactions.
I am excited for this coming year as our homestead continues to grow and I continue to learn and grow.
I send you positive energy and prayers that you find your word for the year.
If you have a word for the year, please share in the comments.
Yesterday I spent some time harvesting some herbs from the greenhouse and foraging dandelion and wild radish leaves from the garden. Taking the time to connect with nature and to have the gift of nutrient dense food from my own yard is such a blessing. To be able to grow herbs not just for flavor but also as medicine to heal and strengthen our bodies is allowing us to enjoy this beautiful life we are creating to it’s fullest.
Taking time to make our health, both mental and physical, our priority is the best gift we can give ourselves. Turning to nature and plants nutures our bodies and helps us avoid illness and disease. Yes, the grocery store is quicker, but a quiet morning of cleaning, chopping and preserving food from my own garden is time and energy that is a joy to spend.
As I have been reflecting on our move across the country and starting this new adventure into homesteading, what I am realizing is that I am more mindful in my day to day life. Cooking from scratch, learning new skills, it requires you to be in the moment. Canning, bread making, infusing oils, waiting on chickens to start laying, none of it can be rushed. It all happens on it’s own time. I spent the last week making presents for family and friends and the simple joy, knowing it came from my heart and my hands has truly made me connected, even though they are far away.
This time of year, we get focused on making magical experiences for those we love. That is beautiful. Remember, you deserve bliss and magic too. Do the things this season that fill your spirit and skip the things that bring stress and low energy. Fall in love with your life, that is a true gift to the ones who love you.
Raising your frequency to pursue the life you are meant to live takes bravery. We can dream of the life we want or we can live as the person whose dreams already came true. Leave no space for doubt. Live in alignment with your true self and purpose.
