If there is one thing I’ve learned while on my journey, it is to try and live a more vibrant life. A life that is filled with excitement, joy, a sense of curiosity, creativity, love, and wellness. And, that’s the best gift I can give to myself!
This was emphasized recently while attending Oprah’s 2020 Vision, Your Life in Focus, conference. It was a day of nourishment for my mind, body, and spirit. I was able to look at what in my life needs attention, what makes me feel connected and empowered. And, I felt so grateful to have attended this event with my husband, one of my daughters, and her friend. It was an amazing experience!
There’s a statement in the workbook for the conference that goes like this.
“Knowing where you are on your journey is a gift. It grounds you in the moment and guides you to a hopeful future. Knowing why you’re on this path creates intention, which gives you the motivation to take the next right step.”
I do have the motivation to keep taking steps forward on my journey. They may not always be the right steps but I’ll figure it out because I’m doing the right things to help me understand and figure it out. I’m surrounding myself with friends who are also focused on wellness and their journey. I’m taking time for myself to be still and meditate. I try to check in to see if there’s anything I need to change about myself or my routine. As I’m writing this, I’m thinking of how much work it takes to be a better me, but I think all the hard work will pay off and I’ll become the person I was meant to be. I see 2020 as a year of transformation for me!
“Let’s make 2020 the year of transformation and triumph. Beginning first and foremost with what makes us well.” — Oprah
