The Excitement And Fear Of The Task Ahead Of Me

As I prepare for the upcoming year with the mission and mindset of making 2017 the best year in my life yet, I ask myself if I will be using all of the tools I have acquired to help me reach my goals.

I just opened the box where my Law of Attraction 2017 Planner came in and felt excitement and fear at the same time. This planner is different than all of the other planners I have been using so far. This one comes with areas to work on a daily and weekly basis, daily affirmations and weekly reviews of my progress. Will I be able to take time each and every day to work on being thankful, meditate and set daily personal and professional intentions? Will I allow myself to sabotage my development or will I be able to set aside a few minutes of my day to breathe, meditate and give thanks to all of the good things that I have in my life? I have tried this before and I know the challenge I have ahead. 

I have done vision boards on an yearly basis, developed affirmations for the year and attended mediation groups for the past 7 years. This year my motivation to grow and heal is deeper. After my trip to Peru this past October, the full moon this week and the effects of the detox program I started 10 days ago; I feel more vulnerable, physically achy, more emotionally sensitive and more aware of the things around me that don't serve me anymore. More than ever I am driven to let some things and some people go to make room for healthier and more supportive relationships where I feel supported and understood. 

I have been on a self-discovery journey for a decade now and as time goes by I am more convinced that the changes start within me and not within the people around me. The power to change is within no matter what the circumstances. I have blamed my environment for not being able to achieve my goals or implement my routines because that was easier than taking ownership and acknowledging that I did what I could not with the tools I had but with the tools I chose to use at the time. The tools were there, I just did not use them all.  

So here I go again. Driven, excited and determined to make 2017 my best year yet. Will I accomplish all of my goals this year? "Life is insecure in its nature, hence it is simple logic: those who want to be more alive, they have to live in insecurity. The greater the insecurity, the more will be your aliveness" Osho.
