As 2023 is winding down to its end, I’ve been taking time to reflect on the past year and where I want my focus to be in 2024. To be honest, 2023 was a freaking hard year. I felt so lost, so many things didn’t work out or fell through, and there were a lot of disappointments. I’ve been feeling so incredibly frustrated because my life isn’t how I want it to be (yet). My first thought was “ugh — another year wasted!” Then, I made a list of the main events from 2023 and found that my year was far from wasted and was actually full of growth and shifts. Some of my highlights include:
Another thing I came to realize is that whenever I got out of my head and heeded those inner nudges, I found the inspiration and motivation I needed. As I look back on this year, instead of berating myself, I recognize that I have every reason to pat myself on the back and congratulate myself for all of the effort I’ve put in, as well as the personal growth I’ve accomplished. How about you? What are some of the highlights from your year? What challenges have you overcome? What can you pat yourself on the back for? What are some areas you know you still need to work on in the coming year?
As I thought about 2024, instead of focusing on setting resolutions (that are the best of intentions, but don’t seem to get too far), I wanted to look at what energy I’d be bringing into the new year. I began to focus on what determined action I’d be taking and what determined progress I’d be making. Don’t you just love those terms - determined action and determined progress? I have a pretty huge goal for 2024. I know that I will put everything I have into it instead of just trying it out and hoping for the best. I will visualize, I will take action, and I will clear out any self-sabotage that’s standing in my way. I will do what it takes to achieve this dream that’s been on my mind and in my heart for years.
How about you? Is there something you want to create in your life? Is there a trip you want to take? Maybe there’s a class you’d like to try? Is there something that you’ve been wanting, but have put off due to circumstances or not knowing how to go about it? I encourage you to set your sights on it and in 2024 take the determined action, so you can make your determined progress, and achieve your goal.
Wishing you a beautiful rest of the holiday season and a most wonderful new year, Adrienne :)
