Happy New Year! Do you make a New Year's Resolution?
Like so many, I pondered creating a new year's resolution, but instead took time this weekend to really reflect on my life. I was recently challenged by a close friend to come up with one word that I would describe my year in 2016, and that word was "breakthrough" and here's why...
We are living in a time of great change. Humanity and the planet are evolving at a quickened pace, and we're witnessing chaotic times. Many people have or have known someone that has experienced some level of difficulty and loss. These unexpected life challenges and experiences have taught me to open my heart in spite of, to be humble, to be present and to make a positive impact in the world.
Last year, I found myself at a crossroads in my life. I was in search of something, a change, or making a difference in my life and the lives of others, and then it happened. I was introduced to an amazing experiential training program in NYC through a mutual friend. (Ask and the Universe will answer.) This work has provided me with lifelong tools and was instrumental in my breakthrough. I learned to stand in my truth, discover my purpose and to boldly design the life I desire to live. I've become a connected, loving, vulnerable and authentic person. My Blog - PrettyBirdsong, started as my passion project to inspire, uplift and empower others, and the more I delve into this the more I see infinite possibilities to create, expand and share with others.
My breakthrough didn't come without a lot of hard work, sleepless nights and many tears. It required facing some harsh truths, dealing with past pain and hurt, but the love and support of this creative process of transformation is so worth it.
I'm grateful for 2016, all of the highs and the lows, and my journey to this point and time in my life. I'm so excited for 2017, and the opportunity to create infinite possibilities.
When we open our hearts in love we serve a divine purpose.
