Gratitude to 2017

Gratitude to 2017

As we close out for 2017, I’ve learn to continue to trust and understand that if we’re willing to surrender to what life has in store for us, there’s no way we can do life wrong.

If you’ve been reading my posts for awhile now, you may know that I started this blog around the time I was ready for some big life adventures, as back in 2015, I quit my job, and travelled to Bali.

I remember trusting and surrendering to the process, being opened to what the Universe might’ve had in store for me. On my return from Bali, I was hoping to find a well-paid part-time opportunity while working on my wellness business, but honestly, the only doors that were opening was my old job (which was difficult for me to say yes to), as well as a different job in the same industry I’ve always worked in.

Knowing that it’s smart to have stable income, I took the new job, and went back to growing my business on the side.

Even though my ego may have wanted a certain story or outcome to unfold, the Universe wasn’t ready yet, and had other plans for me. Perhaps I could have manhandled and forced an outcome, but why?

A soul’s journey is never linear, and although I know of many success stories from corporate employees turned entrepreneurs, i.e., they quit their jobs and within a few short years, their business is thriving with 6-7 figures, that’s not every entrepreneur’s story.

Life would be SO BORING if it were!

Best of 2017

I’m a big believer that everything is connected, and that what’s happening in the cosmos, affects our soul’s path.

In astrology, the planets represent archetypes, and play a big role in how our personalities and life events can play out.

This year, Saturn – the planet that represents the stern, strict General, who is all about order, structure, and responsibility, has made its presence known to me. It came in, cleared what was ready to go, and helped align my dreams and passions.

It’s finally time.

As I made the decision to leave my corporate job for the final  time (yes, I said FINAL!), I know I’m called to step into something bigger.

And that ‘something bigger’: is to take my ambitions and dreams seriously.

To assist with that, a few months back, out of nowhere, I received a message from a holistic medical doctor who asked if I wanted to work with her as a lifestyle + wellness coach in her practice. I’ll go into more at a different time, as details are still unfolding. But working with her is in alignment with my vision of connecting physical, emotional and spiritual health. Plus, it will help me grow my work in women, wellness + leadership.

I look back on my own journey and realize how perfect everything has been as it’s unfolding.

Even though the ego may want certain things to happen yesterday, sometimes, it will take more time for us to learn the lessons we need to learn, and to personally grow.

Before I welcome 2018, I look back on 2017 with deep joy and gratitude. It hasn’t been an easy year – not on a personal or global scale.

But easy doesn’t make life interesting.

How about you? How has 2017 impacted you, and what are you ready to step into for 2018?

I don’t know about you, but I’m trusting that no matter what happens, 2018 will be an adventurous ride.

I wish you a beautiful release of 2017. Cheers to so much love, abundance, and adventure for the new year!

With love,

P.S. It’s still not too late to schedule an Angel Card Reading from me. I’ll be continuing to offer my special rate of $28 with 50% of proceeds to benefit charity. It’s the perfect time for it as we enter 2018! Ping me for any Qs!

Soul-Care Collective

I took the leap and created Soul-Care Collective, a free private FB community for women leaders to connect online, especially on topics of self-care, lifestyle, spirituality, nutrition, etc.

Here’s a little snippet on what it’s about:

Why Soul-Care Collective?

I believe that we’re all leaders of our own lives, and the BEST thing a woman can do for herself is to take care of herself.

But what does that mean?

If everything is energy, and we’re all connected, then for the health of our culture, community, and THIS PLANET, we need make self-care, aka, SOUL-CARE, our #1 Priority. 

When we are grounded, in our power, have the courage to speak our truth, remove the mask of perfection, everyone else around us is better for it, and through who we are, we invite others to do the same.

We’d love to have you!
