new years

⭐️ COMPLETING 2017 ✨ STARTING 2018 ⭐️

beginning-end.jpg

What a year it has been.. For the last few hours I'm sitting in a Starbucks, going through the photos, videos I've taken in 2017. I'm reflecting, writing, crying, feeling all sorts of emotions, letting go, inviting in my dreams.. 

If I had to give a title to last year it'd be, "Own Yourself: Transform Your Life in 1 Year". So much happened in this past year 🙌🏼
.
I facilitated:
- 3 Find Your Bliss workshops
- 1 Connection Through Joy workshop
- 10 Goddess Circles
- 2 Freedom Through Breath workshops
- 1 Embrace Your Divinity workshop
- 1 cacao ceremony
- 2 interviews
- 141 private sessions
.
Completed a transformational coaching qualification, 4 group breathwork sessions, a big clear out in my house, ISTA training level 1, 4 times being on the team for SuperGenius..
.
Launched my website, my business, women's group, had a stand, attended so many networking events, met so many wonderful people doing what they love..
.
Had countless breathwork, healings, dances, breakthroughs, Indian food, laughters, hugs, celebrations, ups and downs..
.
As the year went I had less makeup, fewer bras, a bigger altar, more 5rhythms, more feathers, more dresses..
.
A funeral happened. A wedding and a new baby was born..
.
My body changed completely through healing, breathwork, releasing, changing old programs without even working out regularly..
.
I danced fully naked with beautiful beings celebrating joy of life..
.
I created an intimate and playful relationship with my man where we grow and serve together..
.
I went on a holiday in Turkey with my love traveling around for 5 weeks..
.
The wisest decision I made was always following my truth. The biggest risk I took was doing my first solo women's workshop making it up on the spot. The most important thing I did for others was to connect them to their true essence, cutting through all the crap we tell ourselves.

I'm sharing some moments that meant a lot for me in the last year. The biggest lesson I learnt last year was there's no point in success and accomplishment if there's no one to share it with, so I want to thank some people for their presence and love in my life 💜 
.
I can't tag everyone I ever had a connection with this year, if your name is not there please don't take it personally. If we were in each other's life in some way this year, know that I love and acknowledge you ✨ Also know that there was a tag limit 😃
.
My sisters NathalieG-Therapies GulieSarahLaurenDaisieAmandaTamlynMarium for times they held me, supported me, laughed loads with me and went on adventures with me. I love you all and even when I dissappear and go to my independance mode know that I'm there for you 💖

I am proud of the woman I've become. And I am grateful for the growth and transformation that happened in my life last year.

I learnt that when I follow through on my truth, I get what I want and so much more. When I seek an acknowledgment everything goes downhill. I learnt that I can do anything that I put into my mind, that I have a lot to offer and share. I learnt that as I create a life I love, things don't have to be hard, a struggle. It can be fun, easy and effortless. 
.
I'm letting go of:
- Needing a rule book telling me how to do things
- Fitting into norm, not wanting to push people's understanding of what's acceptable
- Playing small
- Self judgment, impatience, sadness, anger and so much more
.
Thank you so much for all the lessons, all the hard times, all the fun times. Thank you 2017 for pushing me to own myself, to follow my truth. I let go of the girl I was and welcome the woman I am today 😍
.
Next year will have:
- Publishing 2 books
- Running a retreat for women
- Guiding men and women into who they truly are
- More breathwork, healing, dancing, tantra, sessions, workshops, talks
- Travels, festivals, trainings
- Connecting with people more
- Many more things I will reveal as I go 😉
.
I will say yes when its true to say yes, when I'm about to play big and when there's an opportunity to grow ✨

Here are great questions to acknowledge, appreciate and complete 2017:
1. What have I created in 2017?
2. What have I learnt in 2017?
3. What am I letting go of from 2017?
4. What am I going to create in 2018?
