If you are just quiet, if you can just be still, you will hear it.
Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.
William S. Burroughs
The New Year almost arrived and I have spent some time over the past couple of weeks seeking out opportunities to listen to my heart, to be still and quiet.
What is it that truly makes me happy, and what makes me feel at peace? Last year I decided I was going to live Fearlessly Authentic. I was going to be me, despite spending a large part of my life feeling I wasn’t ever good enough, and trying to be less like me, it was time to stop being so afraid to be my true self. It hasn’t always been easy, when you spend a lifetime thinking you are not worthy of good things, and you are not good enough, it is hard to break old habits. It is a long, sometimes tough journey to begin to love yourself and accept you are perfectly imperfect just the way you are. I have learnt so much though and have loved seeing how my authenticity has inspired others to be more authentic within themselves.
Rather than a set of goals or resolutions, I have decided this year to chose one word that I find inspires me. I will share this is a future blog post.
I want you to think about a word, or a saying, that will inspire you in 2018. Take the time to reflect, to be still, to quiet your mind and listen to your heart. This is your life, so make your word, or resolutions about you, and your inner peace. If you listen hard enough to your heart, the answer will come to you.
Wishing you new adventures, lots of laughter, and moments of peaceful reflection for 2018. May you continue to live Fearlessly Authentic.
Happy New Year!
Thanks for joining me in 2017, love Mac xx
