2020, a new decade! This very thought brought me to reflect on the last decade of my life which also led me to be much more intentional about this upcoming decade.
Not that 2010-2020 has been a bad one. The school year 2010-2011 was my last year as a classroom teacher. I retired in 2011. I then set about discovering what I wanted to do when I grew up. After all, it wasn’t about the age. It was about the energy I felt in the adventure.
And an adventure it was. I continued my dancing, tried horse back riding and volunteered at the Animal Shelter. I helped my friend make jewelry at her shop and volunteered at chili cook-offs for charity. My ballroom dancing took me to competitions and dancing in shows. I traveled and started my business which took on various names as I grew as an entrepreneur to now settle into The Clarity Creator.
I made some good decisions that are with me today and I made some that “seemed like a good idea at the time” which I’m still paying for on a variety of levels.
In everything, I learned and came to be in this moment my most authentic and no-apologies woman of purpose, strength and self-love.
Yes, I REALLY do love and like me. That took some work. It was an inside job of great proportions and no easy task.
I had to give up pleasing others. I had to give up doing what was “expected” of me…or so I thought. I had to give up what others thought was best for me.
I HAD TO LEARN TO JUST BE ME!!!
And to trust my intuition and guidance.
Each New Year I created resolutions and intentions. The resolutions (just the word) were self-defeating because they made me feel less than who I am. I was broken so I had to get fixed. Do you know that feeling?
I now do intentions. The overall intention is to have an adventure, to have FUN, and to just enjoy the journey.
What FREEDOM there is in living to create an adventure even if it’s about removing a few pounds, becoming stronger and healthier, meeting new people to expand my or just experience or just being me!! It’s about the focus and feeling of what you’re doing.
Who will you create this New Year and this New Decade??
Make 2020 a great start to this new YOU!!
