Look at life as a blank slate

You have a choice to go completely into fear and worry what the next year or even four years will bring or you can take control of YOUR life. The USA has just elected Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America. Like it or not he’s there to stay, for now. Who knows what the next three months, six months, year or four will bring. Some predict an impeachment, some predict he might be assassinated and some predict that he might just do a good job. I don’t know and nor do you.

What I do know is that its time, right now, to take back you power and decide what YOUR life will look like in the next three month, six months,or year. Every year I set my intentions for the year and about half way through I look at what I have accomplished and what has manifested for me and check in to ask myself: Is this where I want my life to be. I know that if I plant the seeds today for what I desire and follow with action, belief and trust and then let it go and just go back to my day to day activities, that often, more than not, things begin to change.

Last year in May I decided to sell my house. I did this to free myself from what has been holding me for the last 10 years. This choice was difficult in that I didn’t know what lay ahead however I knew I could not be doing more of the same to get the same result. So I decided to sell and in retrospect, six+ months later, it was a great decision. I found a home on my same street, my kids are thrilled and financially it put me into a space that is allowing me to breathe and really think about how I want my life to unfold over the next year or so.

I am now ion the midst of planting my seeds for the next six months. I see expansion and growth as part of my vocabulary. I will not allow what is going on in the world to deter me. That is fear-based and I won’t go there.

I don’t know where you are at in your life but I ask that you sit down and take stock: are you happy? Doing what you like? Spending time with people you like and care about? Being good to yourself and listening to your needs? These are just a few questions you can ask yourself. When you ask yourself if you are happy or not, pleas do not go into blame – we are all responsible for our own happiness. Even in a situation (work, marriage, kids, finances, etc.) we are contributors to this outcome. Perhaps part of this exercise is to see what part we are playing.

The good news is that we can change this at any time. Don’t be hard on yourself…. just accept where you are at and decide where you want to be three, six or twelve months from now. Then decide how you can go about achieving this. Decide who you need to turn to for assistance and/or guidance. Most of all, know you are exactly where you are meant to be and please do not beat yourself up. (I’m also good at that!)

I want to wish all of you a wonderful weekend.

All my love,
