2018 : Surrender
(Playa del Carmen : getaway with my girl)
Certainly, the New Year 2018 is well under way. After a 3 week break from school, Arizona finally returns tomorrow. We’ve been on a few trips during this hiatus, a mix between work and play. Oh: and let’s not forget about my unexpected bout of shingles (SHINGLES?) – eek.
All of this to say, I’m excited to return to my comfy routine of life : motherhood, coaching, writing, creating. I thrive with “to do” lists and a calendar that’s fully booked. I’m motivated to get stuff done when I see how much I still need to accomplish. There’s lots to do and no time than the present!
Now, all of THIS to say : there is a theme / mantra / word that becomes crystal clear to me before the start of each new year. This becomes my foundation and theme for the next 12 months of my life.
This year’s word? Surrender. SURRENDER. Exhale. Release. For sure, it is my life’s work to LET GO of the things that no longer serve me; to bless + release anything and everything that is not in alignment with my higher good. I welcome relationships with THINGS and PEOPLE that will uplift, inspire and motivate me to GROW + FLOURISH.
So on this note, I am taking a step back, observing the flow of this life, leaning into the BEING in this life, rather than the DOING…
Matthew 6:28 “…consider well the lilies of the field, how they grow. They do not toil…”
I am grateful to just BE. I hope your 2018 is off to a peaceful & productive start as well!
