A New Chapter

/ / Empowerment

Hello there! Happy holidays and cheers to wrapping up another beautiful year.

YOU DID IT!

You rose through adversity, celebrated triumphs, embarked on spontaneous adventures, while helping those along the way.

I am currently sitting in a charming coffee shop in Perrysburg, Ohio. Parker Coffee Company is modernized with a rustic, comfortable edge. Whenever I visit new destinations I discover new coffee shops to sit down, people watch, and reflect on my presence

Before we dive into 2016 take some time to reflect upon your entire year from start to end. I encourage you to reflect and throughout this process reminisce on moments of adversity. Moments where you felt powerless, yet soared through criticism and challenged yourself.

WHAT LESSONS DID YOU LEARN FROM OVERCOMING CHALLENGES?

THROUGHOUT THIS GROWTH PROCESS DID YOU EMERGE STRONGER?

Letting go is another moment of pure vulnerability. Sometimes we strive to invite friends with us along our own journey however, this individual is enduring a completely different experience and might not be ready. This is not your fault and when we undergo this occurrence, it is necessary for you to recognize that you cannot evolve their character in the means of which you are growing your own.  As your perspective grows in regards to your life – be present of those around you, help where you can, and maintain an optimistic mindset. Some individuals resist change for fear of uncertainty. However, you do not have to! Strive to never settle. Thrive off of the unknown. And trust: “There are far better things, than any we leave behind” (C.S. Lewis). As we take our first steps into 2016, proceed delicately through the practice of optimistic perspective and a ruling awareness.

WHEN WE RISE ABOVE THESE INTIMIDATING MOMENTS WE DESERVE TO CELEBRATE. 

Let’s take a trip down your journey over the past year. First, remember your resolutions for the start of 2015. How did you go about creating these goals and what enticed you to do so? Did you look back on these goals throughout the course of the year?

In 2016, do what makes you happy. Purely, blissfully, and completely happy. Your happiness is key in generating a life filled with productivity. Find out what cures your worry and do it. What are your passions? What is it that makes you feel alive? Journey on my friend and love every moment of the evolution process. Patience generates results and results create habits. Always be learning throughout this new year! Your story is still going and it’s beautiful. Try new things, visit new places, and stay empowered throughout.

Write goals, challenges, and resolutions that will benefit you and challenge your character.

Shine On!
