Show Notes

This episode is all about New Beginnings for the new year.

We’ll begin by celebrating Our Wins from 2023

  • We can make it a habit to reflect on our personal and professional achievements over the course of 2023. 
  • It’s not selfish or braggy when we are acknowledging growth, success, and the lessons learned. We’ll talk about GAIN vs. Gap in ways to look at our growth. 
  • I share my own highlights of Wins from 2023 - it was a big year for me for personal and relational growth. And when I looked, I had also grown quite a lot professionally. 
  • Segment 2: The Art of Letting Go
  • Often overlooked: releasing what’s constricting us: fear (of failure?, rejection ) Regret, Resentments, Grievances with how things should have been or should have turned out? Keep us from growing and evolving. 
  •  Practices for letting go - Meditation, Awareness, journaling, having a safe relationship to co regulate
  • Invite you to identify what you need to release to move forward.

Part 2: Creating a Safe Space for Growth

  • The importance of creating a nurturing environment for personal, professional, emotional growth and evolution.
  • We’ll review self-compassion, grounding ourselves with safe relationships. This is huge, y’all. We can’t skip this if we really want big explosive growth. 
  • I share tips for cultivating a positive and supportive personal environment.

Part 3: Asking Ourselves the 4 Soul Questions:

  • I’ve asked myself these 4 questions every day for at least 11 years. The answers are wild!
  • 1. Who am I? 2. What do I want? 3. What is my purpose? 4. What am I grateful for? Images, sensations arise…don’t judge. Nurture curiosity about what you actually want, rather than what someone else or society tells you.

Part 4: Setting Intentions based on Desires. Setting SMART Goals for 2024

  • Knowing your Vision and your WHY. Then, you’re ready to look into SMART goals and their importance in achieving success.
  • I’ll help you in setting specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goals.
  • My SMART goal to illustrate the concept: Meditation: 30 seated meditation every morning. 
  • Why: personal and spiritual growth. Creating a ripple effect. 
  • We’ll talk about habits in a later episode!

Part 5:  Mindfulness and Acceptance in New Beginnings in New Year!

  • Reminder: Meditation, mindfulness and self acceptance play a crucial role in new beginnings and setting aligned intentions. Reminder that Outer Peace begins with Inner Peace 
  • Yoga says…  You are not broken. You are already Whole and Complete.
