This post is part of the 2010 “Twelve days of Christmas” series where I’ll be posting something every day for the remaining days leading up to Christmas day! It’s my gift to you! Enjoy!
I hope this note finds you all well and excited about what the rest of the year holds for you, and of course, excited about what you are going to accomplish in the new year!
I gotta tell you, I am so excited and have so much energy that I hardly know what to do with myself! I usually wake up at 4am every morning but lately, my eyes have been popping open right at 3am and I’m up and ready to go…do something! LOL!! I have been spending the time listening to music and sometimes dancing to help release all of this energy that I have and when I’m able to, I just sit still and gaze out the window and wait for the sun to greet me!
I have thought about my goals for my life for 2011 but really, I’m so excited and focused on each day that remains in 2010! And let me tell you, each day has truly been one for the books! I have been experiencing “miracles” every day and look forward to what each day has to offer!
One of the things I did at the beginning of the month was to create a 30 day plan focusing on what I wanted to accomplish before the end of the year. I have been working on this plan and it has truly been awesome to see my goals realized and my plan come together! I encourage you to set a goal for the remaining few days of this year and give that goal your undivided attention! No need for it to be elaborate but something that you can achieve to give yourself a boost of confidence going into the new year!
I had an interesting day a few days ago where I experienced a bit of a breakdown. Yep, I go through it too! Although these experiences are never really “fun” I recognize them as an opportunity for expansion and growth so when I began to have these thoughts and feelings I just went with it!
Without going into detail and for the sake of brevity, I was having some thoughts about attracting certain experiences in my life and wondering why they keep happening! I experienced anger, I experienced sadness, I cussed ( I like cussing sometimes) and then I asked the tough question of myself: “What am I doing to keep creating these experiences for myself?” The answer immediately came and it was eye opening for me! I realized that I was not accepting and loving myself as I am and like so many other women, I was wishing for something to be different! Better!
Well, during that experience I realized that I am my best and my best is magnificent! I realized that there is no need to want anything to be different and that I am fabulous “Just As ‘I Am’!” And with that, my life’s theme for 2011 was born! I took out my red lipstick that I use to write affirmations on my mirror with and wrote across the top of my bathroom mirror “JUST AS I AM!” I will look at it everyday, smile when I see it and affirm it-every day! If ever I’m tempted to critique myself or compare myself to another I will remind myself of my mantra!
So, what will be your life theme going into the new year! I encourage you to ask the tough questions of yourself and listen for the answer! Out of it your mantra and affirmation will emerge and I think you’ll be pretty amazed at it!
