One thing I ask myself this time of year is what do I want to cultivate in the coming year.
When we are all taking stock of where we are and what we want out of life, look out into nature and observe how she shows us that it’s our opportunity to go within and seek alignment with ourselves.
This is also a great time to focus on gratitude and nurturing what we love. Instead of setting goals, think about your daily intentions.
Setting your daily intentions not only allows you to be present in the moment, but also creates a space to open your heart and to raise your emotional energy, which will translate into raising your physical energy and you'll find yourself being more productive.
Life is a journey not a destination. Enjoy the ride, go with the flow. ♾ (Santosha)
Know there is so much power in experiencing the ‘New’ ness of each day. When we turn our attention inward and start taking care of our Self your world will shift and change.
This is the feeling a New Year should bring. A feeling of release. A feeling of newness. A feeling of being free!
Here Are Some Journal Prompts To Help Invite Those Feelings
