At the beginning of January, we are excited and motivated by the new year, empty planners and vision boards to write down all that we want to accomplish in the upcoming year. However, slowly, the newness rubs off, and we get busy and forget.
As summer begins to wind down, this is the perfect time to re-evaluate what’s worked, what hasn’t, and what we want to manifest for ourselves moving forward. Perhaps we need to eliminate some goals and start new with a fresh vision. This vision should be utilized to wake up parts of our personality that we want to come alive again. Keep in mind that we are always manifesting, no matter if it’s good or bad. We attract what we vibe, and therefore we must protect our vibe to create our desired reality.
I suggest scheduling a sacred hour to reflect on all the accomplishments, all the failures, and everything in between. I recommend doing this in a space of compassion without any judgment or criticism. Remember, whether we achieve our goals or not has no bearing on our self-worth or esteem.
As you think about the remainder of the year, ask yourself these questions:
What goals did I make progress on?
Are there any goals that are no longer meaningful and I want to let go of?
What is my vision for the rest of the year?
What is my energy around these desires?
Am I in total alignment with what I want?
Most importantly, return to happiness and celebrate your successes, keep lessons and wisdom from your failures, and find your flow state so you can create again from a place of happiness.
Start here and remember you don’t have to treat this like a standard goal list but rather as a way to have a deeper relationship with yourself. Let’s find that strong vision that pulls you forward for the remainder of the year. I am rooting for you.
If you are struggling in any way to find your purpose or live into it, I invite you to message me to schedule a time to chat. It could make all the difference for the rest of the year.
