What a year 2017 was. Looking back I can't believe all of the things I learned and how so many life changes happened that I wasn't even expecting to. This year I learned to cultivate patience more than I ever have in my life. Patience while learning new things, having compassion for myself and learning how to flow in life. Here are a few of the things that I've learned in 2017 and I will bring with me into 2018. . .
Continue building the muscle of self love. One of the best parts of 2017 was having the courage and focus to self publish my book, Blissful Living. It takes a lot to do things differently. It takes a lot for me, a Capricorn, to switch things up. I knew I had something to say, and I wanted to do it in my own way, at my own pace with full control. So I did it. Standing by yourself and believing in yourself has literally been the most incredible feeling. It is the ultimate form of self love.
Make a commitment to your own personal bliss. When I moved into my dream condo, Villa Noir, it changed my life in almost every way. I learned that sometimes its okay to not listen to what you are "supposed to do" and do what you really desire to do. I wanted so badly to paint my walls black, so I did and it was fabulous. It created an amazing backdrop for my daily life.
When you choose to stay in your zone of bliss, you keep yourself in alignment with all the things that you want. Abraham Hicks calls it "staying in the vortex" and from my experience in this last year. It absolutely works. From making the decision to stay in my bliss, this year I did so many things in my career I had always wanted to do, I met my love, we've traveled everywhere, we have some exciting things in store for us in 2018 (I'll share more soon), all the things on my vision board came about. This is what happens when you get aligned with you dreams and you do that by staying in your bliss. My mantra for 2018. . . #BlissVibesOnly
If you are looking for a fresh start to reboot your life and get yourself into your bliss, I highly recommend my 30 day Blissful Success workshop. You'll get a step by step guide to re-booting your life mind, body, soul and home. It's definitely a game changer.
Your home is your sanctuary. So you have to treat it as such. You must create a space that you desperately love to be in. That's where all of your joy, inspiration, creative ideas, memories and dreams will happen. Set the stage to your life in a way that you dream it to be. For me it was a black and gold office that absolutely rocked my world. In 2018, I will be changing it all up and I can't wait because I have so much fun in the process.
Always be in the creative stage. This year I began creating workshops for my newsletter readers and it has brought my community so much closer, which has been beyond fulfilling. I love sharing the things I learn in life with you all. If I have ever felt like something is stagnant, I know its time to begin creating new things and it has led me to walk through so many new doors. Life is always evolving and nothing ever really stays the same. I do now understand the importance of keeping the creative juices flowing and never stop making new magic.
In addition to my Youtube Channel, a few workshops, I created my most favorite program, The Paid Decorator. It has seriously brought me so close with women with big dreams. I love connecting with my readers in a more tangible way. This year, I am going to make more of an effort to focus in Instagram and Instagram stories so I can keep you in the loop of daily life, too.
If you want more, you have to be more. My mentor taught me that before you can receive something in life, you have to become the person who is an energetic match to what you want. If you want to attract love in your life, you have to be more loving to yourself in your life. If you want to be someone that travels first class, you have to be the woman that travels first class. How does she dress, what does she do for work, who does she surround herself with? If you want to be in shape, you have to do the things that "in shape" people do like work out, eat clean, stay away from alcohol, etc. It's really not difficult to have what you desire.
Your intuition knows everything! A few years ago, I called a physic for advice for a major life decision. Looking back, that woman was wrong and had no idea what she was talking about. This last year, I really made an effort to meditate, pray and journal daily in order to get closer to my intuition. It worked! When you take the time to cultivate your inner knowing voice, you will never need to know what anyone else thinks because everything you need to know is already inside of you. If I can encourage you to do anything, its work on getting to know that. This is exactly what I teach in my course, Unleash Your Ista. Your Ista = your intuition.
