This year more than any other I have shown up for myself. It seems like an odd thing to say because every year for the last 4 years I've shown up more than I ever have and achieved some pretty great things. But there has always been a niggle just under the surface whether it be pain or attachments not released, frustration of goals that felt too far away or the usual fearful feeling I get when I worry too much.
Travelling forwards is something I'm good at...mind made up and off I go that is me. Being in the moment has been a much longer journey and that has come from releasing my expectation of what the future might be and slowing things down so I notice so much more; more of all the tiny little bits of joy that make travelling forwards so much fun.
What did I do different? I enjoyed time to myself, fully and completely! I felt, I considered, I reflected, I read, I listened and I adventured solo. I learnt the value of getting to know me better so that as I travel forwards every decision reflects who I am, what I love and fuels my purpose.
As the saying goes
'You are Braver than you believe,
Stronger than you seem,
Smarter than you think and
Loved more than you'll ever know'
