After throwing all my energy into my resolve in January I found myself feeling stuck despite my best efforts.
Looking back over the past 6 weeks I realized, among other things, I set too many goals. I created boxes to be checked but I failed to define where I wanted my goals to take me.
So, I took a deep dive into my “stuckness”. I slowed down, turned inward and (gasp) asked for help (more on that later). Yes, I have checked off some of my January goals – I am cooking at home more, I recommitted to my yoga practice, embraced teaching yoga and started planning for the year.
Today, moving forward, I am focusing my resolve on accepting and leaning into my life as it is today. I’m finished wasting time being stuck on ideas of who I’m “supposed” to be; trapped in the past; dwelling on who I was; and agonizing over how things played out (or didn’t).
I am embracing what is in front of me, checking my ego and dropping the masks I have created and I am being who I am NOW.
I am 52. I am stroke survivor. I am an empty-nester. I am wise. I am strong. I am resilient and I am ready to live this fantastic life.
