When I grabbed the painting to finish it, I also grabbed my book that I write messages in so I could re-read my message. I am SO glad I did, because, quite frankly, I had forgotten most of it since October!
What will best support, nourish, nurture, and empower me in the coming year?
Trust. Trust, trust, trust and more trust. Take that step and the support will spring up to meet you. Like Magneto. Or that queen on "Epic". Don't wait to see where it's leading, just trust your heart and leap if you need to. We'll catch, promise. The nourishment for that next step can't spring up, can't connect, until the step is taken.
Take care of yourself, too. More than you do right now. Fine tune it. Let the noise fall away. Allow yourself to become really focused, you'll need that this year. Not really focused on your end goal, though. Really focused on the sound of your heart, really focused on the love of your family, really focused on those connections you're making or have already made that are too precious to break. Focus there. Focus on the step you're in, on where you are right now. And if you're nudged, focus on the next step. But no farther than that. Just those things are MORE than enough to focus on. You may struggle with even just them. But always remember, we're here with you. Always. And you can handle it. When in doubt, go back to taking care of yourself. Even a little think like managing and soothing your energy can make a big deal. Turn off the distractions. Fully let them go. Listen to the quiet between the words. Allow yourself to be lifted. Allow your circle to come together. Make those honest and authentic connections. Focus on the heart. Always focus on the heart. In each and every moment, especially the hard and hurting ones, focus on the heart. And the year will be blessed.
I was going to write more, about how that message helped me this week. But my littlest needs me (she's feeling sick) and I'm feeling very strongly that I need to just share this as is. So hopefully this message and painting to support MY year will support and encourage some of you in yours as well.
Love to you all!
