🌟 Reflecting on 2023 🌟
As I stand on the threshold of a new year, I can't help but marvel at the journey that was 2023. It's very easy to share photos and memories when you've enjoyed a year filled with success, love, and milestones, and to be honest, I didn't want to share much with you about this past year.
When things don't go the way I hope and plan, I'm not big on sharing the details! Typically at this time of year, I review my entire calendar to reflect on the past months and set intentions for the new year. I've been avoiding that activity. In fact, I had to force myself to face the memories of the past year. I'm glad I did because even though 2023 was a year that tested me in ways I never anticipated, it was also a year that revealed my inner strength. In reviewing my calendar I also realized that I had forgotten a number of wins and accomplishments.
Amid the chaos of 2023, I found strength in the victories, big and small. Renovating a home, nurturing my business, birthing a new book Overcoming Imposter Syndrome, and introducing MANIFEST, a planner for women—these milestones are my testament to perseverance.
My coaching business stayed strong, and I had the privilege of leading a brand new year-long group program, two retreats for women, and witnessing their incredible growth and transformations.
Learning to cook healthy alternatives to traditional favorites and replanting a flower garden became treasured pastimes, and two solo vacations were a reminder of self-love.
Advocating for my son amidst his challenges, crafting a flexible work schedule to share more moments with Mom, and deliberately allocating time for other family members have underscored the transformative power embedded in these important relationships.
Unexpected financial challenges and surprise obstacles helped to reveal a reservoir of resilience within myself. Here's to the lessons learned, the growth experienced, and the happy memories that were created.
As I bid farewell to 2023, I carry the lessons, the scars, and the victories into the New Year. 2024, I'm ready for you! 🚀
If this past year was tough for you, I encourage you to look over each month in your calendar thoughtfully. Among the challenges, I bet you'll also find forgotten wins, good memories, and remarkable resilience.
Here's to a new chapter, new adventures, and new heights. May this new year be a canvas of joy, resilience, and boundless possibilities. Let's embrace it together. 💖✨
