As we ring in the New Year it is always a great opportunity to reflect on our growth from the prior year. It’s a good time to review what we have experienced and how we have observed results from both the wonderful events and the sometimes grueling challenges. Growing pains happen to adults as well as children, and how we respond to the inevitable challenges life presents does impact our results.

While working through challenges can be painful— it brings with it proof of our inner resilience. Looking back over the last 12 months, let’s be grateful for both the great gifts you have been handed as well as the obstacles you have addressed and overcome. It is in these obstacles that we learn to test our mettle to conquer, to seek a higher truth or make a bigger impact on ourselves and the world around us.

This is the time to truly measure our successes and our failures. We can look at where we made decisions that did not work well for us and also, where we triumphed!

Now for 2019, let us set new intentions by looking backward and forward. While we may not have complete control our intentions when well aligned with our heart and our souls, will become reality. Keep them close and continue to take action and steps toward our intended desires.

Best wishes to you for a Happy, Healthy and Abundant New Year!
