EPIC brings GRATITUDE for 2015. So many blessings flowed into my life in 2014. I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude for my life. One year ago, I had no idea where I would land. There was a sense of unease. Then an angel appeared and changed the uncertainty to joy.
The joy continues to grow as I settle into believing that I deserve all the good that flows to me. I did not always believe that I deserved to be happy, settles and prosperous. It took a lot of inner work and coaching to uncover the root of those feelings. Massive amounts of healing have taken place. I have grown. I have made it to a place of near serenity. Can the security I so desire be close behind?
I am prepared to be deliberately mindful of all opportunities to create gratitude for the epic abundance in all facets of my life. I have worked hard to be where I am today, and I intend to reap the rewards of that labor. I finally believe in my mind, body and spirit that I deserve the best and I no longer have the need to delay my good. It is not about my worthiness, but about acceptance and vision.
2015 will be a year of dancing with joy as I watch the hand of God at work in my life. As I prepare to enter into a state of flow, ease and grace I rejoice at the abundance I already have…and I look forward with wild expectation to what is ahead. I resolve to step out of my own way, to let go and to trust.
Living within GRATITUDE for every little blessing and ever big blessing and all those in between blessings, has delivered me to this place. I continue to grow and expand my consciousness as I relax into the being that I am. I have growing edges to be explored and many joys to discover.
I give thanks for my life and all that I am. I plan to continue to simplify and clean up the parts of my life that need attention. I will celebrate every day with wild abandon. I have journey far in these past few rebuilding years. I have learned much about myself. I have learned how strong I am. I have learned how little I need to be happy. I have learned to feel joy in even the smallest of things, like my morning cup of tea on the lanai overlooking the lake.
Angel Wood Cottage has given me the place to breathe and thrive. I hope to be here a few more years until I can again have a home of my own. Meanwhile, I live in GRATITUDE!
Past Year Themes
I have been selecting a word/theme for my year since 2008. This is my eighth year. So much has happened as I review past years and celebrate how far I have come:
2008 – HOPE – It was a year of trials. We moved back to Florida from Georgia. HIMself became ill and I lost my job as Editor of my beloved The Artistic Stenciler magazine. I struggled to find hope in any way I could. My faith and my Spiritual Direction studies carried me.
2009 – GROW – Grow I did…through trials. The world seemed to be closing in on me. I discovered plenty of growing edges to explore. God gave me the time to explore them. I started my little radio show calledArtistically Speaking Talk Show. I continued my studies to become a Spiritual Director at Sacred Heart University.
2011 – SOAR – Oh my what a year to soar as I became a frequent flyer. My dear Jenn introduced me to this little group called Social Fabric. I joined and found a home and much needed hope. By fall I had a contract job with their parent company Collective Bias. I lost a lot this year, but gained so much more.
2012 – LEAP – I leaped headfirst into the year with joy and a determination not to look back. We moved into my peaceful sanctuary on the Plantation. HIMself broke his ankle and I learned just how strong I am. I delightfully created magazines for CB, walked the marshes in meditation and thrived in leaps and bounds.
2013 – BALANCE – I gave myself the gift of time this year to take care of myself emotionally and spiritually. I was married, started a new job and saw many dreams come true.
2014 – EPIC ABUNDANCE – I stepped up my game as I reached for security. I believe deeply that there is enough for everyone. I was open to all the good and abundance the universe has to offer as I set my intention to unearth EPIC ABUNDANCE in my life and business in 2014.
