Rising from the ashes...

I'm ready for 2015!! I absolutely love the renewal of the New Year and always use this time to reflect on where I've been and where I'm going...

The last 2-3 years have been huge for me on pretty much every possible level. There have been many drastic ups and downs. There were times I found myself lying in a puddle of my own tears and other times standing on top of the world.

I chose to put myself through various personal development programs (Landmark and The School of Inner Beauty) in an effort to be free from my past and live into the life and the woman that I've always wanted to be.

I had no idea what I was in for...

At one point, I ran myself into the ground and a nervous breakdown trying to HAVE it all, DO it all and BE it all.
From that, I learned that I'm perfect just the way I am.

I went through a divorce and learned an insane amount about myself.
From that, I have an amazing partnership with my now ex-husband. We did some crazy-hard work to make sure that we could still give our kids the best life possible.

I spent a couple of months dating men that were insufficient for what I'm up to in life and then made an agreement with myself to be single for a while.
From that, I met a man that showed me that it's possible to love again.

I put myself in school (again), dropped out of school (again), and then went on to become a certified nutritionist.
From that, I learned belief in myself and the ability to accomplish things.

I found my passion in life and then started my own business which was not my passion, yet was quickly on the way to success.
From that, I learned that I'm capable of doing whatever I put my mind to - especially that which I'm passionate about!
And from that, I met the right person at the right time and launched myself into my dream career.

There are some things about 2015 (January alone!) that I'm terrified about. More big changes and risks are taking way.
But from that, I know that there are the greatest gifts, growth, success, accomplishment and reward on the road ahead.

2015 will be the year of the Phoenix for me. I'm launching myself up and out of the ashes. I will always struggle, but I will always persevere.

Love and abundance to all,
