New Year New Me...New You?
It's a new year and I wanted to update you on all I've been doing. Well, not everything. I'll only share what might be beneficial for you. I've been really taking stock of where I'm at in life, as I do regularly, but it's come to my realization that I can do even more. If I'm a better steward of my time, I can write more. I can blog more. I can lean further into my purpose which is to help others become the best version of themselves possible...whether through social, fiction, blogging. My mission is the same. If I manage my time better, I can do more of that.
So...I've really thinking about setting new and bigger goals. I called a friend of mine a few weeks ago and she reminded me of a powerful manifestation technique that I used to use but had long since abandoned. Silly, because it works. She really needed a job. Bad. She had previously told me she'd been writing the goal down daily. She was specific in what she wrote down. She wanted to interview in December and start work in January. In the midst of our girl chat, laughter etc, I didn't pay too much attention to what she said. But, I called her the other day and she blessed me with the news that she had already had a phone interview and they had just called and scheduled an in person interview. It's borderline miraculous since she hadn't been employed in years and it's a really good job! I'm sure ya'll know how this story is going to end. I'm going to recommit to this powerful manifestation tool. If you want to learn more about manifestation, why this process works etc., sign up for my members area. It's new but I hope it will become a place for connection where we share ideas to help us grow.
So, my first goal for the new year is getting clear and specific about goals. My second goal is to get healthy and shed these extra menopause pounds. I have some tricks up my sleeve. I just need to be diligent about instituting them....alkaline diet, a specific form of cardio, plenty of sleep and more water. Again if you want the deets join the forum. These blogs will get way too long and people will start unsubscribing. Which is a another goal of mine...to grow my email list. My email list is how I notify people of my current projects, new book releases etc. Please do me a favor...if you find something I share valuable, please forward, like and share on all
platforms you're on. I promise I'll try to be helpful.
Back to my health goal. We only have one body. Can't switch it out for another, so why not do the best we can to maintain it? Why not focus our energy and attention on being healthy instead of being sick. I prefer not to live my life in fear that I'll come down with the dreaded thing I saw on T.V. Illness is not the body's natural state. Health is. If you give the body what it needs, it will serve you with vibrant energy and a long life. There's so much information out there that the medical community is not readily sharing since they benefit off of us remaining sick. For example...did you know chlorophyll helps detox the body and preliminary research is showing anticancer benefits? Did you know pumpkin seeds kill parasites that most of us have and that cause of myriad of conditions and diseases? I've passed them and they are gross.
I've come to realize over the years that you get out of life exactly what you put into it. So over the next day or so, I'll find a nice journal that speaks to me and I'll start organizing and
committing to my goals of efficiency and time management, committing to being uber healthy which will help me achieve the bigger goals I want...to get the next two books out, get them in bookstores, connect with more people and even more.
So for me, at this stage in life it's simply a matter of...I'm tired of playin'. I've always been someone committed to continuous improvement but I know I can do more. If I want my life to be the best it can possibly be I need to invest more in Me. How about you? What will you commit to. Not for the next month or so. What changes can you incorporate that will become a
part of everything you do for the rest of your life?
