As we celebrated this birthday and made this big life decision within about 48 hours, I couldn’t help but notice how (beautifully) different my life feels right now than at any time in the past. I wanted to share a couple of those ways with you, in case it resonates or sparks any inspiration for you!
A huge part of my wellness journey has been letting go of unrealistic expectations and goals motivated from messages and values that weren’t my own. The beauty in releasing the power from those things is that I can now look to the new year feeling refreshed an energized, not because I have a clean slate to start over and “do better,” but because I get to re-visit my values and priorities and set intentions to live in line with those intuitive guideposts going forward.
Did you know we all have an internal lighthouse? Maybe you think of it as your gut instinct, your intuition, your soul, or God in you. It’s that sense of knowing. That voice that whispers to you the right way to go, even when all the noise of our modern, ever-connected, over-programmed, outward-focused lives is yelling 10,000 different alternatives. We might not think it’s needed - google can answer any question, right? But let’s challenge that thought.
