It’s Time to Level Up!
My theme for 2018 is “Leveling Up.” I’ve played small for most of my life, never accepting my gifts or allowing myself to dream of a better life. I was raised to be grateful for what I was given and accept that as what I was meant to have. I am grateful, but I accept nothing as is.
It’s actually my gratitude for the gifts I’ve received that has allowed me to accept that I want more, I am capable of more, I am worthy of more and that’s okay. No one ever told me that these feelings were okay when I was growing up, but I wish they had.
Every morning we wake up with breath in our lungs is an opportunity to grow, to learn, to expand. If we are not doing everything we can with the gifts we are given, then we are nowhere near our purpose and that is no way to live.
How could you improve as a person, as a partner, as an employee? Are there dreams you once had that you’ve let go of along the way? We all have areas of our lives that could use some improving, so I want you to choose one thing right now…this very moment. Place that thing at the forefront of your mind and decide you’re going to take it to the next level this month or this year. Focus on it every single day and search for ways to allow that one thing to improve your life. I promise you if you put in the work, the next level of your life will reveal itself and once it is revealed, then all you have to do is live in it! I am a firm believer in the idea that if you have a thought in your head, it is your job to make that thought a reality. In doing so, you’ll know what it means to level up and once that Pandora’s box opens, the sky’s the limit for you and your life.
Personally, YOU are my one thing. As many of you know, I am in the process of writing my first book and I cannot wait to share it with the world. While it’s been a daunting and sometimes terrifying journey, it’s one that I was called to do. My hope is to use my own stories of struggle and growth to help each of you live healthier, happier, fuller lives. You are the reason for my book, you are the reason for my new website and you are the reason for this post.
My goal is to share in a way that connects and inspires you all to do the same, wherever you see fit. If the conversations that we start in this space transfer into your day-to-day life, that is wonderful. If things we discover here are able to grow your lives elsewhere, my mission is complete and my heart is full.
I am putting myself out there to create a community of dreamers and doers who might need a space to check in, regroup and recharge so that they can take their talents back into the world and improve the lives of others. If you are one of those people, it’s so nice to meet you. I look forward to getting to know each other and growing together!
