Do you ever stop to feel your aliveness?
To be in your body, take a deep breath, and realize you are alive.
Let's keep taking action on what feels aligned with our desired outcome. Let's keep creating, and yet, let us embrace the unknown. Let us not attach to the outcome WE want because it may not be the outcome we NEED.
Let's embrace the unknown, and be grateful each step of the way.
The work of being human.
Are we paying attention? Are we more aware of our actions, and how we're showing up? Are we paying attention to patience as we trust the process?
We may not always realize there is a process for everything, especially the things that are habit, like, sleeping, having a glass of water, walking, driving, eating. We've developed a trust in those processes to get to their particular end, yes?
Though the Google search results were not as conclusive as I had hoped, I feel pretty confident in relaying the idea that showing up is ~80-90% of life.
Taking action is going to look and feel different for every person, and every situation, as we have diverse desires for our lives. As we continue to deepen our relationship with ourself, we'll know without a doubt what action will be right for us. Maybe that's where we start the inquiry - what's the desired outcome?
We learned some things in 2018 that will come with us into the new year, and there are also some things we are going to leave behind.
I do hope that what stays with us is all the work we've done on our relationship with ourselves. All the affirmations we focused on, wrote, lived, and forgot about. All the moments we learned from, and all the self-love we experienced.
I do hope you've taken to heart these affirmations over the last year because I know they have prepared me for the moments: happy, sad, exciting, frustrating, relaxing, overwhelming, and so on...
Believing in ourselves is a necessary brick in laying the groundwork for our life - to support us on the journey - through careers, relationships, various goals, and all that we desire out of life.
