In reflecting on 2013 I am reminded of Dickens’, A Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”… It has been a year with many ups and downs; and each experience has challenged, strengthened and changed me forever. It has been my best year ever and I am so very grateful for every second of it. Below are some of my greatest lessons in 2013:
The world is a beautiful place and each of us has the ability to make it even more so. And when we do it together the synergy is where the magic happens.
Letting go is not easy, but probably one of the greatest gift you can give yourself.
Sometimes the darkest moments are where you discover your greatest truths.
Trust starts with yourself. When you trust yourself you discover all the answers are already within you.
Freedom is a state of mind and the environment is just the backdrop. Choose to experience freedom in all that you do.
Vulnerability does not make you weak. It can be your greatest strength.
Love is easy! When it is not than it is something else, attachment.
Forgiveness is more about what you need than it is about the other person. So be generous with forgiveness as your heart and soul will thank you.
Stand close to the edge, to experience risk, adventure, to step outside the box of perceived safety, because it is from that place that you can then see a whole new world.
Fear and Love cannot exist in the same moment and you get to choose which of the two you experience.
Failure is an option and worth the risk.
Heartbreak can be a valuable gift.
When you feel overwhelmed, as if you have failed again, or that life is really hard… remember that you do not need to listen to ego, and that in that moment there is nothing you need to do but just breathe. You are whole… you are enough!
See the world through loving eyes and the world you will see is filled with love.
Sometimes being lost is actually the starting point of finding yourself.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me. 2014 is going to be the best year ever (again)!!
