There’s more to the holidays than food, presents, and parties. There’s family. There is excitement. There is hope! Make time to ensure that the holidays become a source of renewal and rebirth. In life, it’s all about balance. And, day to day events can sometimes make you lose focus on what really matters the most. Read on to learn how you can use the three R’s (rebirth, renewal, and refocus) to help you reconnect with yourself so that you can heal from the past, transform in the present, and create the future you’ve always wanted and deserved!
When the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, consider the next second a clean, fresh slate. You can be whoever you want to be moving forward. You can choose to make more time for yourself so that you can feel an inner-connection again. Or, you can make more effort in various areas you know you have been neglecting, like spending more time together as a family, focusing on your finances, or transforming your body so you are in the best shape and health of your life! I think there’s something magical about the New Year and the overall concept of a new beginning. There’s no better time than the present to rediscover who you are and determine who you want to be and how you want to spend your remaining time on this planet.
No one’s life is perfect. And, 2016 may have put you through the ringer. But, when 2017 rolls in, it’s time to heal and regenerate. Forgive those who may have hurt you in the previous year, accept and acknowledge your feelings; but by all means move on. You’ll never be able to gain any kind of balance by holding on to negativity and ill feelings toward others. Everyone heals in different ways, so find a way that works for you! Be sure to work through the process so that you can feel fresh and fabulous; helping you focus.
Once you start anew and forgive and forget previous circumstances, you can begin to refocus. This means listening to your heart and keeping your eye on the prize; which is all the goals you set for yourself. If you take in all the sights and sounds of the holidays now, you will be able to visualize and even declare what you want your 2017 to look and feel like. Your imagination is a powerful thing, so the sky is the limit when it comes to want you want and how you want to feel.
In addition to the 3 R’s, it is important to remember that achieving sacred balance is being able to live in the present moment. Don’t wait to connect, don’t postpone your dreams anymore. Start investing in yourself, your talents, and your passions and give your all every day! The holidays will help you think about this when you surround yourself with the ones you love.
In 2017, you don’t want to learn the importance of sacred balance too late. Remember that life is a series of moments that come to an end. Every birth comes with the knowing of death, an expiration date we know comes sooner or later. So, be present in each moment; allowing yourself to honor the eternal flow of life!
