2018! A Time For Transition & Transformation

Hi everyone! Wishing you a happy holidays, wherever you are in the world. This is an amazing and grateful time for getting together with family and friends, and cherishing your presence with them. But also, a new year means transition, transformation, and getting the chance to be open-minded about all the universe has to offer!

For me, this period has already shown me the ways that I can improve how I live my life, my choices, and the positive ways that I can affect my personal future ahead. A new direction in my career has presented itself, new and renewed friendships, and a more solid sense of myself, and it has all been, I believe, a direct manifestation of me taking the leap for new opportunities.

And I encourage you to do the same! Take advantage of things that your spirit calls for. Open your mind and heart for what is coming your way. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and it’s your chance to take your own intuitive advice. The power of intuition allows us to be so much more in tune with ourselves, without distractions, and to use it as a guide.

Have you ever had that gut feeling something just felt right? Or didn’t? In my experience, I’ve found that those nagging feelings are and have been my internal navigation system. It lets us know what our desires are, and when we are headed in the right direction.


So I challenge you!


In this upcoming new year, create some goals for yourself. Not just the usual list-making, but what it is that you want to do in this life. Need some guidance on how best to reach your goals? See here!

What are your dreams? And more importantly, what steps will you take to make them a reality?

Embrace new opportunities that feel right for you, no matter what others may say, think, or feel. Rid yourself of toxic, negative relationships and distractions (including your thoughts!), and anything that doesn’t feel right for you, at this moment in time.

I know for me, I am passionate about this blog and spreading the necessity for self-love, achieving your best life, and dealing with life’s ups and downs in a way that helps us all come out of it even stronger in the end. Especially for those who feel that it isn’t possible in their lives.

Just know that it is ALL possible. Anything that you could ever need in this life will be brought forth in a way that only YOU can facilitate.


It is up to you to make these things happen!


And if not now, then when? I’ve always believed that I would rather have a situation fail and I learn something about myself in the process, then never having tried at all. We all have this one life, and it is IMPERATIVE to make it the best we can. Not for others, but for OURSELVES. Trust your intuition, and you’ll never look back
