2017 was a crazy year on so many levels; for starters, it was the first year of Trump’s presidency, it also seemed to be the year for natural disasters – how many epic wildfires, hurricanes, and earthquakes can one year take? Not to mention, all of the other events and tragedies that tried to tear us all apart (I won’t even go into detail on those – we’ve all read the headlines). Though it was an insane year, I’m still super grateful for 2017 because I believe it has truly motivated us to use all the lessons learned to do better. To be better. To be stronger. Not only for ourselves but also for one another.
For me personally, I learned a lot in 2017 – from dissolving one business, to growing another, creating and hosting our first retreat series, hosting our first race weekend, BlogFest, speaking, blogging, teaching hundreds of classes, growing and managing the studio, and oh yeah, starting to grow a human – all in all, I’d say it was a pretty big (and also very challenging) year.
But with all of the big changes and new developments, also came a whole lot of big self doubt, stress, and frustration . Did I make a mistake? What am I going to do now? Will we have enough money to….? Is there any way we can…? How will I ever…? What was I thinking? Why is this happening? Oh shit. Oh, shit. Oh SHIT.
And you know what? I’m tired of it. I’m tired of the self doubt, the woe is me’ing, the excuses, and the fear. And I’m giving up on it. Completely. Cold turkey.
In 2018, I’m saying buh-bye to the things that don’t serve me and opening my arms wide to possibilities. I’m looking at change with a new lens – embracing it with positivity and determination – as a chance to try something new – and giving myself the tools to rise above when things get tough. I’m coming at this year with an attitude of strength, and gratitude. I’m opening my heart up to challenges, and adapting and flexing my strength to meet them head on.
I 2018, I will not be defined by boundaries or limitations. I will not be defined by excuses or fear. I will be LIMITLESS.
How will you be limitless in 2018?
Stay sweaty friends,
