It is hard to believe that 2016 is almost over. in a little under 4 hrs, we will be welcoming 2017. I will not be up at midnight, but I will celebrate with the sunrise.
It has been a very exciting 2016. Some of the highlights include: long weekend in Pigeon Forge, a crazy road trip to Utah and back home, being of service to the community, seeing the Ginger water ski (he used to compete as a jumper), spending time with family and friends, launching new products for Angie and a Ginger, growing closer to each other, celebrating one year of marriage, and for me, starting and working on Rouxbe, professional plant based cooking class.
So what does 2017 hold? Well, I can only hope that God blesses me with another day, another moment, another chance to say, “I love you”, and another chance to work, be and serve my purpose for the greater good. To let go of ALL, and I mean ALL limiting beliefs. To embrace my calling and be authentic to my true self.
I will not be making resolutions, however; I will be setting intentions. Intentions to grow. To move, to act, and to embrace the following:
*decluttering: every room in the house, letting go of what no longer serves me. Simplying.
*to graduate from Rouxbe and my Vegan essential dessert course.
*to race, at least twice in 2017. maybe a sprint and olympic distance triathlon?
*to be of service. To volunteer and give back to my community in new ways
*to post frequently with new content, new recipes. to be raw and authentic
*to share my experiences of my visits with an integrative/functional doctor
*to launch new products for Angie and a Ginger, including woodwork by the Ginger
*to be authentic and share my experiences with money and debt
*to laugh, to enjoy friends and family.
*to continue to grow and develop my relationship with my God, aka, the universe, aka one true source
and last but not least, to just enjoy the present moment. To let go of the what if’s, the worry, the doubt, the hypotheticals, the negativity. To just embrace who I am, who I have been called to be and to let go of all resistance.
I challenge you..come embrace your true authentic self. Love yourself unconditionally….let go of the resistance to do so. Love the nitty gritty dark corners of your life, your ego, your doubts. Let go of the “control” you are trying to establish over your life and your experiences. Love others unconditionally. Live with no expectations, but dream and create a new reality. Do NOT let your EGO control you. Try something new. Get out of your comfort zone. and most importantly, seriously, most IMPORTANTLY – regardless of what the news, your “friends”, your ego, your bank account, your current circumstances, your job, your relationships, etc..never, and I mean NEVER give up hope.
Hope for a brighter future. Hope for love. Hope to make a difference. Hope to be of service. Hope to dream, to be and to do.
And then, after you have hoped. ACT. BE. and DO.
Here is to not only wishing you a good tomorrow, but wishing you a fantastic 2017.
Much love and blessings,
