2017 is officially over. I am taking these moments to reflect on everything I have learned in the past year.

It has been a year of many life changes.

Many of which I would say was far out of my comfort zone.

I decided to make these changes in my life because I am committed to expanding my consciousness.

This will help me live my life happier, healthier, and with a greater purpose.

I have been evaluating every area of my life to see how to balance my life.

It’s time to get honest with myself here.

Am I doing what makes me feel the most joy?

In what areas do I see my life needing more nurturing?

For most of my life, I had no idea what that meant.

I was under the spell of my past conditioning that it meant doing things even if I don’t want to.

All the people pleasing left me feeling depleted.

Every area of my life was suffering.

I didn’t feel like myself for most of 2017. That’s not how giving love is supposed to feel.

If you feel that way, know that you are not alone.

Our true nature is love and everyone deserves to feel fucking fantastic when giving time and energy.

I lost some very important relationships because I decided that I had enough.

In 2018 and beyond, I made a choice to rise up and start standing up for myself more.

I get to say no to what I don’t want to do in order to attract more of what I want.

Saying no is empowering, even if it means giving tough love to your loved ones.

They do not get to take your power and rule you around.

You are not a puppet.

That tiny voice in the back of your noggin aching for freedom is what our true being gets to experience.

You are worth more than what others project onto you.

That’s their shit to deal with, not yours.

As an empath, I have made the mistake countless times to believe what others project onto me.

I felt like my mind was being manipulated like a wind-up toy.

I take on that energy, instantly shifting my mood from happy to shaking in fear.

When I fully understood the magic of mirroring, it has helped me decipher my thoughts and feelings from others.

I have my own set of wants and needs that must get accomplished in my soul’s lifetime in this body.

I trust myself more and let the Universe do the work for me.

The more I embrace this, the easier my life gets to be.

The more energy I get to have to do the activities I love.

I see life in a whole new light.

I feel excited to see what each day brings.

I get to heal my wounds for all the times I reacted in judgment because of it.

Forgiveness and love are the names of 2018.

I accept everyone as their whole selves and focus on the love everyone gives me.

It first starts with me.

I get to surround myself with people who love me for all of me and want to see me smile.

To top off those intentions, I rang in the new year with my bass fam.

On a whim, I decided to take the trek alone to Atlanta after everything that has happened over the past few months.

I almost sold my ticket but had an inner feeling of regret if I did.

Through all the projections of fear, lack, and doubt thrown at me, I busted my fears in the ass.

I decided to take the adventure alone. It was the first time I had ever done this and I couldn’t have been any more excited about the trip!

Before I left, they were all complete strangers and took me in with open arms.

It was one of the most wonderful weekends of my life and the best decision I ever made!

I feel like I walked away with a whole new family that I will get to share more wonderful experiences with.

I couldn’t be any more grateful for every soul I met over the weekend!

So much love and hugs to go around!

Thank you for all being such delightful humans and I can’t wait to see you all at the spring gathering.

Until next time! :)
