It is a new year. The first week of 2018 has passed already.
As much a tried to be present and tried to enjoy 2017 inarguably I have been waiting for 2018 for awhile.
Last year was hard. But also beautiful. I definitely had a lot of breakdowns but even more breakthroughs. A lot of things manifested and 2017 held so many things to be grateful for.
The first week of 2018 already holds an entirely different energy. I feel like 2017 was about grounding everything, about rooting myself, about closing things and resolving things, this year I feel is about opening up, about harvesting the fruit of all the seeds that were planted this previous year, about creating and connecting.
The last night of 2017 I spent with my husband under the moon and the stars on the beach setting our intentions for the new year. On the first day of the new year we got up at 4.30 and watched the first sunrise over the ocean on the beach, something we did last year as well. One of my favourite traditions.
Some of my intentions for this year is to immerse myself in nature everyday especially the ocean. I’ve been going for swims and walks every morning and it feels so good. I’ve gone for another sunrise swim this year already as well and even though it is so early to get up when I work as late as I have been this week it is so worth it. Something else I am committed to is to take better care of myself. I tend to work myself quite hard and most the time I love it like that but I have decided to invest more in things that makes me feel grounded and connected. I want to take this time to nurture myself acknowledging that mental health is equally as important as physical health if not even more important. I want to spend more time creating. A life without creativity and passion and imagination and magic isn’t for me. I want to take more time to spend with the people I love because it keeps me feeling connected and inspired and to make the effort to adventure more with my husband. I have so many intentions for this year, these are merely some of them. I cannot wait to see what this year will bring and I trust that whatever will manifest will serve a divine purpose on this path of awakening.
