Feel like your life should be in a different place by now?

Hi beauty & happy holidays, 

I wanted to write you a quick note today because I've heard so many women -clients, friends, even a woman I met at an event last night- tell me that the holiday season doesn't always feel all jolly.

The end of the year marks for many people a point where they reflect on what they have and have not achieved.

I know that many of you thought that 2015 would have been the year in which you finally fell in love with the one, get engaged, changed your career to something that lights you up, had a baby, changed your body, made your health a priority, moved apartments or even cities, got a pet, made new friends... simply put, many of you thought that 2015 would have brought more positive twists and turns into your life than you now see.

(ever feel like this ;) --->)

As a result, there can be a variety of emotions ranging from frustration and anger to sadness and feelings of insufficiency. 

If this is you, know that this note is especially for you! 

I want you to know that it's completely ok for you to be where you are right now in this very moment of your life. Blaming and being unfriendly with yourself will get you nowhere. I promise. It will only make things worse. 

Even though your thoughts, desires and wishes may have raced ahead at the onset of 2015 it doesn't mean that you have failed if you find yourself not having realized all of them. 

While I can 100% empathize with the desire for love, a fulfilling career, greater health, and wonderful relationships, I also know that actually realizing these things in your life takes a lot of consistent focus + some of them are simply not in your control and so the effort here consists more of letting go, trusting and working on yourself (for ex. you cannot time when you will meet the love of your life, but you can focus on emerging as the woman you want to be if you already were in your ideal relationship). 

With that said, I want to truly and from the bottom of my heart, encourage you to feel your feelings about 2015 and then take a deep breathe and let the weight of these emotions go so that you can start fresh, with a clear mind and an open heart as we are approaching 2016. 

BUT, instead of launching yourself into 2016 with the same resolutions you had last year, the question I want you to focus on is this: 

Who do I want to become in 2016?

Notice, I am not asking what you want from the outside world, I am asking you which parts of yourself you want to wake up. There is a huge difference. 

If you would like a little bit of playful support with this topic of desires and wishes, check out my Manifestation & Vision Boarding e-course. You can hang with me personally in 4 short videos and do some fun, creative, and soulful exercises that will ground you back into having faith that your life has all the potential to be exactly what you want it to be. Check it out here

My boys and I are heading to Europe on Sunday to celebrate the holidays with our families, so this is likely the final entry for 2015 (unless I have some divine ideas that I cannot not share with you;))

With lots of love to you and yours!

xo,

Caroline
