Any Moment, A New Beginning

My year started a little later than most people’s, and for good reason. I got married January 9th!

Easily the best day of my entire life – I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

I am a huge New Years goal-setter so typically by January 1st I have all my intentions set, business projects and ideas organized and sorted, and have let go off all the crap that I refuse to bring into the New Year.

This year marks a new beginning for me in many ways, on so many levels:

A new partnership. New purposeful business ideas. A new home. New energy. New office. New clarity. New focus.

I am more determined than ever.

Each month I have scheduled events that I will be attending that are in alignment with my core-desired feelings (a concept I learned from The Desire Mapwhich is a must-read), I ditched the projects I thought I should do, I am furthering my education as a yoga teacher and Health Coach, I am connecting more and more like-minded women, and I am taking the pressure off myself to ‘do it all’ by out-sourcing mundane, irritating tasks as well as hiring a business coach to keep me accountable to my hopes and dreams.

I am choosing inspiration over motivation. And it feels so much lighter, and much more spacious.

I created my goals in a different way this year. I first got clear on how I wanted to feel – expansive, unique, free, connected – then I created my goals. 

Each day I participate in at least one activity that cultivates one or more of those feelings.

I am only about two weeks into this new approach of goal-setting, and my life has transformed in so many ways:

I feel lighter. I trust. I am living more in alignment with my purpose (regardless of how many clients I have or the money in the bank). I trust. I am inspired. My heart is open and ready to receive. I am setting healthier boundaries, effortlessly. I am unapologetic. But above all, I trust.

I trust that The Universe will carry me where I need to go. I don’t need to push so hard anymore. I just need to feel pulled. 

From this place my creativity has been soaring, I am filled with joy, and love trumps any fear.

Any day, any moment can be a new beginning. It doesn’t have to be a Monday, a new year, or a new moon cycle. Because at any moment you get to choose how you want to feel.

So, what are your core-desired feelings this year? How do you want to feel?

Once you get clear on how you want to feel, all your goals and dreams will naturally fall into place…
