Initiate Your Power

This is the year for stepping into your power, your full potential, and letting go of feeling like you need to explain your boundaries.

My best friend, Lindsey sent me this earlier this week, "Today, I want you to remember that you are a BOSS, you don't need anyone to come save you. You are not some damsel in distress... You, my love, are a BOSS and you can handle anything." Remember that. Write it down. Speak truth to it. It can easily be a daily affirmation. It quickly became one for me. Mantra. Mantra.

We fall accustom to excuses. Saying, "It's just the way, it is.." Enter every other non-valid sentiment we fill our heads with. No! Be better than that! Do better!

 Acceptance is normal. It is easy. It will destroy your willpower for change. To initiate that power, that fever from within, that sets your heart and your mind in motion...don't sit there and think, "Tt's okay," because everyone does it. No they don't. Not everyone. Dare to be different. Don't be one of them. You are destined for great things, even if that sounds cliché. Make a decision to be a better person and then go be one. No excuses.

From one of my favorite authors, Rachel Hollis, "Ambition is not a dirty word." It is not a bad thing. The definition is almost poetic. "a strong desire to do or achieve something, requiring immense determination and hard work." Basically, a willingness to overcome and succeed. No matter what. Do what sets your soul on fire. Determination. No boundaries. Initiate your power.

A Season of Letting Go

So, we are exactly one week into the New Year. 7 days. I couldn't count on my fingers and toes the amount of times, I have heard, "New Year, New You!" The count far exceeds the amount of extremities I have on my body, and then some.

With each New Year, the calendar signals to us the growth and the changes that happened in the past twelve months. The trials, the tribulations, the change we wish to see in ourselves and in our world around us. We reflect, we want to do better.

We experience a rebirth: marked with resolutions, goals, and dedication to a new cause. It's a time to let go of the past, the things that hold us back. Or the things that no longer serve us any purpose. Sometimes it can be hard to let go and to move on. That's growth.

Personally, I don't do change well. If you're like me and letting go (changing) is hard for you. Just know you are certainly not alone. However, it is important to keep in mind that resistance to change can be soothed with a mindset readjustment. That sounds kind of harsh... But you can't experience a level of growth without some self-reflection, prayer, and readjustment. This can be emotionally, socially, mentally, or even spiritually.

Being able to reflect and be completely open and honest with yourself is step one. Ask yourself, what you truly want out of this life? What does your ideal life look like? How do you feel? What growth (change) needs to occur in order for you to get there? What needs to be eliminated from your life because it is simply weighing you down? Which of your qualities should you embrace to achieve this new shift in your life? What actions can you take to get there? How can you begin this ultimate journey towards this beautiful life today?

Just as it feels so completely unbearable to let go... Rebirth, abundance, and change will come as you let go. It is all apart of the process. Oh! How hard it is to surrender ourselves gracefully at times, knowing deep down in our heart of hearts, that the best is yet to come!
