Happy New Year to you all!
Holidays are always a fun time for me. I get to spend time with family, friends and loved ones to celebrate all the blessings we've been given throughout the year. 2016 came with a lot of highs and lows for me personally so the last few days of the year were a time of reflection.
As I began thinking I started to notice a recurring theme......I was BUSY!! Crazy work schedule, relationship time, Blogger events and appearances, vacations (yep that was plural!), and time with family and friends where I could fit it in. I felt like I was being pulled in so many different directions and when it came time to take care of myself I kinda felt guilty about it, strange I know.
One thing that really stood out to me was how BUSY I was....not how PRODUCTIVE I could've been. I decided to choose INTENTION not as a resolution, but more of a focus word. Intention in my opinion means making a conscious effort to live on purpose and based on your values and beliefs. It's energizing and fulfilling to focus my energy on what's important to me and serves my purpose and goals. I love supporting my family, friends and colleagues in their endeavors but I have to remember to take care of me along the way.
Every new year brings new possibilities and I'm more than excited for what's in store for ALL of us.
I wish you all a Happy and PRODUCTIVE 2017! Make it your year.
