2010 has been year of setting intentions to grow, to get myself out of my comfort zone and live life on life’s term. As I look back at this past year, I can see how much I have grown in this process. Most importantly how driven I am, once I figure out the why am I doing such action. The why’s are not long extensive explanation, quite the opposite they come as themes, words, synchronicity in my life.
For instance, the spring was all about getting out of my comfort zone and try new structure activities. The spring unfolded from taking Bollywood dancing classes, going to the MoMA, reading various memoirs and non-fiction books and attending lectures on meditation and other topics of interest.
The summer was all about exploring my sensuality, what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. I explore from learning how to bake cupcakes to taking Burlesque classes. I took on classes that were out of my comfort zone yet they fit into the theme of being a woman. It all fell into place. I gained new tools and experiences that reminded me to love myself fully as I am.
The fall has been about what would life look like if I had a choice when it comes to my negative thoughts. The theme has been all about climbing out of my negative thoughts and setting new intentions to live a life full of love, joy and happiness. This has meant from trying IntenSati, learning how to run, getting back to basics when it comes to self-care. Actually learning to enjoy the moment as it is.
As I reflect back, I realize that my drive to take action comes from the very why I am doing it. Last night I was set to go to a couple of dance classes. My intuition kept bugging me to do some journaling. I took the time and had a nice dinner and did some writing. I felt lighter and connected again to my why. I realized that last night I had no motivation on going to the classes that all I wanted to do was to go home. I listened to my intuition that guided me back home to take care of things that I have been procrastinating such as rest. This morning I feel refreshed and reconnected.
I am looking forward to the road ahead which I am sure will continue to bring me joy, happiness and love in my life.
