So, you know those the high expectations that come with with all the "New Year, New You" messages every January?
It's like the whole world's on this one-track mindset, and it can feel pretty overwhelming, right?
What if January is already done and it still feels like I'm putting closure to 2023?
Am I falling behind? and Is 2024 already a bust?
Answer is, absolutely not!
I wanted to write you today to give you a PERMISSION SLIP....to not have everything figured out for 2024 in January.
I think it's a much more sane to be focusing on completions and putting closure to past things so that we can truly step into our power this year.
This pressure to have it all figured out in January?
Let's call it what it is... good marketing and a total myth!
WE have all year to make things happen!
Progress over perfection, remember? Can we take a moment to take this in?
Wherever you go, there you are!
You see, we are all so quick and happy to move onto the next thing, the next year, the next project...
AND then when the honeymoon phase ends, then we return to back to being our old selves.
This year we are not going to do that, let's make the entire year a creative space for our lives.
Let's draw focus to bringing a NEW version of ourselves forward this year.
If you truly want to step forward in a NEW way, then the first few month's of 2024 could be used as "spring cleaning" and putting things to closure.
You don’t have just one chance to start this 2024 journey in the right way.
You get a chance to set and choose your OWN PACE!
You can reset and restart as many times as you need to, can I get an inhale and exhale!! Ahh that feels good right?
On my journey as a mother, I've learned time and time again that nope I'm not going to be a "perfect" mom.
I have my good days and I have my bad days and I've learned to drop the guilt and the self shame around motherhood so that I can simply start each day again, fresh and ready to give it another go.
So, if you have dropped the January ball, its ok, there's plenty of time to get in a groove.
Remember that our lives and the year 2024 is not a sprint.
And we are not here to impress anyone but ourselves yes?
This is not a time to call it quits.
Your impact is really big when your happy, joyful and feeling confident.
Let's slow down and reset when we need to, and go forward when we are ready!
Sounds good right? Ahh, it feels good, at least over here right now.
Remember that all of the most challenging events of our lives didn't make us weaker.
They made us STRONGER.
I know 2023 was incredible challenging for so many of us.
Let's let 2024 be the year that we fall a little less, and rise a LOT MORE YES?
Let's open to our JOY and happiness more than EVER BEFORE!
