What a wild ride 2017 has been. More than a years worth of fires and floods, loss and grief along with plenty of anger, blame and judgement in the air as well. It’s easy to be drawn into the drama and acrimony of others. We don’t always have control of the events of our lives, but we can control our attitude and the way we view these events.
How do we maintain our balance with all of this negative energy swirling around? In the coming year I would suggest honing in on your self nurturing skills, integrating them into your daily routine with these three skills.
1.) Setting your intention is a great way to create more of what you want and let go of those things that no longer serve you. An intention is a conscious choice for the direction of your life in this new year. It isn’t a list of action steps, but a statement of what is important to you. Better than New Years Resolutions, intentions can not be broken. If you get off course you simple reevaluate and take “course corrective actions.”
2.) Surround yourself with people that will support you in your hopes and dreams. There are plenty of people in our lives that are more than willing to tear you down to their level.
3.) Self-forgiveness is an essential skill you can use on a daily basis to release any self-judgements as they come up. The judgements you harbor against yourself and others are negative energy you carry inside of yourself 24 hours a day. Self-forgiveness is an indispensable tool.
Wishing you a great, glorious and magnificent 2018! Continue to learn, grow and protect yourself from taking on other people’s negative energy. In a well lived life, there are always challenges as well as explorations. When things come up, reach out to the people you trust who can lift you up. And as always, we are here to assist. Reach out and let us know how we can help YOU make this your greatest year yet!
