Need some inspiration for 2017?
Morning Gorgeous Beauties!
Happy New Year! Boy I don't know about you, but this year flew by so fast for me. I have to say there is a part of me that is VERY happy to put 2016 to bed, however we cannot let the year go by without feeling gratitude for the good things that did happen this year. So I challenge you to take a moment today and write down 3 things that you feel thankful for that happened for you in 2017.
Here is my list-
1- I am grateful that I finished my reconstruction surgeries on my chest. Lucky number 9! Woo Hoo I am so done with all of that business. My body is healing and I am SO grateful for the power of the mind and body connection. And the consistent love and caring of my second family Jeanne, Don, Grace and Georgia - who without them I do not know how this all would have happened.
2 - My children- LOVE them so much. They are not perfect as no one is, but I am so grateful that they are healthy, strong, have their own minds, are smart and above all kind and compassionate. They helped me so much this year. Navigating multiple surgeries and a bunch of other personal stuff. These kids ROCK!
3 - My experience thus far - I am so grateful for my life, the experiences I have had as they have all brought me to this one moment in time where I will majorly shift my life in 2017. I have all of the trauma, drama, sadness, illness, divorce, depression and anxiety to thank for making me the person that I am today. I know that these experiences have given me the gift of tenancy, strength, wisdom and compassion to make a difference in the world.
So as you get ready to kick off a new year, here are some of my favorite inspirational resources for leading us to impactful change in our lives.
Brené Brown studies human connection — Our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. Watch this and lean in to discomfort as that is the basis for true growth! If you have not read her book Daring Greatly you are missing out.
I am not your Guru. OMG watch this and you will be astounded. Tony Robbins is amazing and his life story is what has driven his life's purpose. We all have something to give and we need to strip back all of the B.S. so that we can give the world our true gifts.
The year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes - If we want to change our lives we have to start receiving and you do this my friends, you must start by saying YES!
Tim Ferris is the mastermind behind the 4-Hour work week. He has a serious case of OCD and is quirky but his tips and tricks are awesome. He also just released his latest book called the Tools of Titans which I cannot wait to dive into.
Listen to the Podcast #207 with Brene Brown great way to start the year. I listen to these when I walk.
I recently started to meditate daily. I cannot tell you how much this is helping so many areas of my life. If you are not sure how to meditate, one of the best places to start is The Chopra Center. They have a whole series of Guided Meditations that you can use. My daughter Audrey uses them for her anxiety. I have used the Healing Meditation many times post operative.
