Tuesday Thoughts And Reflecting back
Hi Friends, How was your Christmas? Have a seat, let's talk, and reflect about the past year. This week we enter into a new year. For me and many others, this is a time of reflection. I was just reading over the reflection I want to send out. Here it is, before I add some thoughts.
What goals did you reach? What dreams came true? What lessons did you learn? What are you most grateful for in 2022?
I give thanks right now for 2022 and all it has taught me. I will forgive myself for any hurt or pain I may have caused. I forgive others for any hurt or pain they caused me. Because I can choose love. I choose to do so now. I love myself. I love others. And right now, I let go of this past year. I take the lessons. I hold the memories. I receive the love, but I let this year go. It owes me nothing and I am immensely grateful for it. I am ready now to move on into 2023 and am dedicated to creating the abundant life God designed me to live.

Oh boy, that hit me. I look at this every year, but right now, it makes me tear up. It has been one year since my brother passed from this life. Grateful? Abundance? Those words sting a little. Plus, so many things I have not told you about, that are very painful.
What lesson did I learn? Many lessons. We are never done in the school of life. I learned that a loved one (brother) can be here one day and gone the next. I learned that people have stories to share once you open up about yours. We are all hurting and hiding behind a smile and going on with life. I am continuously learning to listen to my gut; my spirit's prompting; whatever you may call it. I learned that people came to my support when I needed it. I learned that the right people will. I will definitely write more about lessons learned. Feel free to share yours. You know I love your feedback and it fills my heart to hear from you. What am I most grateful for in 2022? The time I got to spend in my brother's apartment saying good bye and holding a memorial for him. Stories and memories that people shared about him (after I asked). My children growing up, making good life decisions and even showing support in my grief. I'm learning to always reinvent and heal and to take the next step. I learned that many have been through similar life experiences (family stuff too) and are happy to tell you that they made it. I'm learning to ask for help. Learning to let go of friends who are not meant to stay in my life. And learning to welcome new friends. So, let's reflect...take the blessings, the lessons, and release the old year. Releasing isn't always easy but it is necessary to open our hearts for the new.
And yet, time doesn't stand still or turn its wheels back. Next week, I will write to you from 2023. If you need help releasing or processing the old year, I am only an email away. Need help? Message me.
PS: Message me for a free consult to start moving toward a more confident you.
You are loved. Deeply loved. Loved beyond measure.
Until next time,
