I hope it all went with a bang and you are filled with motivation and excitement in the now, and for the year ahead.
Oooo..This is time of year always feels like a nice clean slate.
I love the opportunity to start afresh. Where all my mistakes and foibles are yesterday's news, and from here on in, "I am going to be different and everything is going to be awesome". Having had a great 2017 of new beginnings, solid planning and organisation will move me forward.
"I will not procrastinate and waste time. I will get things done and make stuff happen". Oh yes I will!
I like this reset button on my life. I clean up my desktop. Make new folders that are fresh and junk free and new plans for classes and courses. Eager, organised and poised to have a prosperous year. So far so good.
"This year I will be super organised and efficient; A trailblazer in body mind soul wellness I will be of service" (fist held high in supergirl pose)
And then the feeling comes over me, among my new pens, notebooks, when I can't prioritise and go into overwhelm. I feel nothing is working and I'm not good enough. Everyone else is doing it right and I'm failing. "I can't do it". I am in Self Doubt central without a ticket.
I go back to my heartcorebody practice, I remember to be kind to myself, and take things once step at a time.
I notice how I feel, what my doubts might be about, and make peace with what is. I am super grateful to have all that I have, to be on this amazing journey and have all the people in my life that support me and teach me. I am really so thankful and in awe of every day miracles. Life rocks and I feel blessed. I reconnect and remember that the universe has my back.. if I meet it half way. Faith is restored. I am enough. "We've got this" .. And theres the ticket.
We don't have to change who we are or BE different. Feel gratitude, have faith for all that you are and know you are enough.
It's good to check in with what self doubt might be telling us, as negative emotions warn us when something is off kilter, but talking to ourselves badly and staying down on ourselves does not help. Of course, we can all do things differently to improve our lives, our health, our relationships (to ourselves and others), our situations, our finances - Absolutely yes, and we must take this responsibility.
We are the captains of our ship, at the helm, co.creating our lives
Changing the way we think about ourselves and doing things differently based on what we have learned from our experiences is how life works. We already have eveything we need to make the changes we want to make for ourselves. Making a decsion and taking action, and not paying attention to self criticism is key.
Do you go straight to self doubt and think that you are doing it all wrong? Your parenting, your work, in your relationship, being a friend? Aarrghh! Are you comparing yourself to others social media presentation of themselves? Are you judging yourself and others?
Inspired by keeping us real in spite of self doubt, I am running a workshop Saturday 13th Jan at my heartcentrebcn in Barcelona (not yet online). Its called ROCK your 2018. Practical tools and heartcorebody practice to quickly turn self doubt and fear and into health, vitality and happiness. Get out of your head and into your body, bust through blocks, raise your energy and feel on your game for your amazing life.
You've got this.
