For the past 2 years I have been doing something new to me. It's not a huge thing, but it's been life changing because it's made me notice things more. It tunes me in to what it is I really want to focus on in my life, that year, that month and it puts my mind and heart in the right place in preparation for whatever I am drawing into my life. It's a simple thing and it's just one thing...it's creating a theme for my year.
It seems simple. But it's powerful! Last year my theme was adventure. Since being married, I noticed that I am not as adventurous as I was because it was less of a focus. Not only did I go to Havasupai for the first time in 8 years with my husband, (which by the way was the best trip with my husband in our marriage!) but I somehow I got my "scared of heights" husband to suggest, organize, and schedule SKYDIVING! I never thought that he would ever go sky diving let alone suggest it. Looking back at it, I am amazed by the power of suggestion. And I'm amazed at what an adventurous year we had. :)
So this year, as I thought about the theme I wanted for this year and how powerful it can be in my life, the thought kept coming to my mind that "life is good but it can be better and you need to be better."
I have been fighting adding more to my plate the past couple years, and fighting being better. Mainly because I didn't know how I could possibly do more. So I sat with it for awhile, and decided that I was ready to figure out how. Then the theme "Good to Great!" came to mind. I know it's a book (that I have not read) but it perfectly described what I wanted for this year. And so it began.
In spontaneous ways that I wasn't expecting, the universe brought a couple books my way that I actually read. And those books were Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and even more impactful was The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. And then my sister encouraged me to do the 21 Day Fix. I've done it before but I just felt it was too hard to keep up with. But this year I was focusing on being great! So.... I started the miracle morning and I started the 21 day fix and it's been awesome! Also, 1 week into both of these programs, I got an email from a business associate that I respect, Justin Morgan (which the way we met was very serendipitous an couple years ago), invited my husband and I to go to a course Master the Power Within that was happening next weekend. Work was crazy busy and I just decided it was something I was going to make room for! And I did. And I am here. And this is such a great remembering and learning of the foundation of my life.
There has been so much that I have learned, but right now the thing that I am going to talk about is the things that I am willing to give up to work to be a LION in my life, to begin to live up to being my higher self at all times. The things that I am giving up and am becoming are: 1. I am going to start accepting feedback from Brandon specifically. (Which is hard for me!!!) 2. I am now an on-time person. 3. I check in. I do not live in the distracted present. That means with with cell phone and TV.
This is the beginning of my Good to Great life! And I am grateful for Master the Power Within because it has opened my mind to giving these things up and start living my best life!
Life is Great!
