Abundance in 2023.
Welcome to 2023! Feliz año nuevo!
A new year, a fresh start.
A time for reflection, restoration, and revival. In full transparency, 2022 was one of the most difficult years I have ever had.
As I look back and review my milestones & setbacks, I'm deciding what will come with me into the new year, and what will be left behind. There are some things I would definitely like to see a little bit less of, and others I would surely like to see a whole lot more of.
As I visualize what I want for this year, I realize that I've been thinking with such a limiting mindset filled with uncertainty and scarcity.
If I have X, I can't have Y.
If I am grieving, I can't be happy.
If I'm a successful employee, I can't be a successful business owner.
If I'm enjoying time with friends, I can't focus on my health.
Do you ever think this way?
All or nothing. This or that. One or the other.
I'm challenging myself to think differently this year.
I want my thoughts to be overflowing with abundance, instead of scarcity.
Thinking with AND instead of OR.
What if I can allow myself to be happy, and still be grieving?
What if I can flourish in my corporate job that I love, and grow a successful business?
What if I can honor and nourish the relationships in my life and my health at the same time?
One of the biggest gut punches and fears I have had moving forward in any direction, in many aspects of my life, is that fear of what is being left behind. If I do this, then I will not be able to do that.
So what happens? Nothing. Perfection paralysis. There isn't any movement for fear of not making the right decision, the perfect choice. And there's nothing more painful than standing still.
When thinking about what I visualize for my Camino and this space, I've had those same frozen moments. Hearing you need to "niche" and focus on one thing in order to grow. But just one thing, to me, is a terrifying word. If I focus on one thing, I'm leaving other things behind...and I don't want that.
What I want this space to be is my whole journey, my camino, to allow myself to heal and flourish.
My path to joy.
To be stronger and happier than ever. For me, it's an adventure of health and healing, and I don't do that just through art, so I don't feel like it would be fair to portray it that way. It's a compilation of allowing myself to create, to feel, to move, to be immersed in nature and adventure, to allow space and calmness, and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the wonderful world we live in.
So what if I allow myself to implement AND into this space as well?
A space for art and adventure.
The calm and the chaos.
Movement, music, stillness & silence.
The year of abundance.
The year of AND.
The year we stop the limiting beliefs and welcome it all with open arms.
It's going to be a buen camino mis amigos!
