“The trouble is, you think you have time.” ~ Buddha

This past year has been many things for me – tumultuous, uneven, unexpectedly high, super low(at times), downright crazy, emotionally high-strung, thoroughly healing with immense growing etc.

But the one constant thought that stayed with me is the words of Buddha…The trouble is, you think you have time! Honestly, this thought never left me and it is even more stronger in my head now as I usher in the next year. I’ll tell you why in just a little bit.

I saw highs in 2016 like immense growth of Positive Provocations subscriber base, blossoming of my little girl into this beautiful person who is all heart(yay! happy mommy🙂 ), Successfully Counseled countless Souls, friends that came back after years, healthier me, confidence levels boosted like NEVER before, awards and accolades, ideas and inspiration for businesses etc etc.

But there were lows too! Those lows are where all the learning came from. Those low points in 2016 are what jolted me back to that healthier, confident and more loving state I am in right now. So, I must acknowledge them.

2 Life Lessons from 2016

Life lessons come in the most unexpected ways for us all. Some come quietly and some come with bells and whistles. But they do come. If you are anything like me, who is always on the path to self refinement, then life lessons are almost in your face all the time. So these lessons are what hit me hard this past year…the learning of which WILL make 2017 more beautiful and productive for sure.

  1. My need to be RIGHT always is a whole load of crap! Duh…right?! I had a little bit of the ego left in me when this life lesson hit me HARRDD. Here I was thinking I was this calm, cool, evolved person…and then BAM it hit me. In a family feud of sorts, I realized I was operating from a place of ego, rather than love. It was a good thing I realized this while IN the situation. I immediately excused myself from the situation, went outside, did some deep breathing, centered myself and came back to operating from a space of LOVE rather than a space of being RIGHT(which was obviously ego driven). I went back in and almost like magic it all calmed down…the feud then turned into a huge hugging party🙂 Loving vibrations always work.
  2. My own Limiting beliefs NEED to be addressed, like NOW! Yup, although I know very well that I have an open mind and a very big heart, I was made to realize that I was still holding on to a few limiting beliefs especially related to Abundance that I needed to change. I’m currently reading Gregg Braden’s ~ The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits which is making me question and work on changing many of my limiting paradigms.

Why 2017 is all about Carpe Diem

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

With the self refinement right on track for me….let’s get back to CARPE DIEM or putting it simply LETS F*&*ing SEIZE THE DAY!

So my intention this 2017 is Carpe Diem.
