I have such an exciting year ahead of me! So much to share.. so grateful for my family and team.. you know who you are. I have been working so hard and for so long, it’s been a gift to me and my family and often it HAS been hard to recognize when is it time to enjoy the fruit. So many areas of my life have fallen into place.. they have aligned in ways I have and have not even imagine.. for those that I have imagined, the lesson was clear… you keep waking up, you keep swinging and keep trying.. you undeniably can make anything possible. For all that manifested without thought.. it was almost like rewards.. confirmations that when you give a shit about being the best of you.. it all evolves around you. You gain allies and people that truly will be in your life to better you and help light the way for what you are here for.. you also lose people along the way, it doesn’t mean they are lesser or somehow don’t make the cut.. just means you eventually walk at different paces.. you take different roads, roads that unfortunately don’t lead you in the same direction.. but in the cosmic, in the eco system of our own personal universe… it all played a role, and with that.. it somehow led you to this point, to a place of affirmation.. a time where you look in the mirror and KNOW, that you can live the life you want, changes will happen, you will have to declare and stand grounded to the idea.. that you have put the hours, paid the dues and done the good work. Stepping or dipping into your past.. it’s only allowed to remember the lessons.. and build the efficient momentum that keeps you on track.. to be the real you. That said… don’t give up on what you love.. you deserve that. #Affirmation #LateNightThoughts
