Happy New Year! I know it's February and I know I said I was going to be on a 90 day "leave of absence" until April - but January was awesome and I wanted to share what I've been up to!
For starters, following the 30 Day Challenge I did in December where I did a video a day for 30 Days on Instagram, I decided to do another Challenge in January - which was all about decluttering! Yes I've read Mari Kondo's book (like 4 years ago?), and yes I know she has a new show on Netflix - but she was not on my mind when I chose to do this challenge. Because while it was in part about "stuff", it was also about clearing my mind.
Here are some before & after photos, along with some other things I decluttered in January that were less tangible, but equally as satisfying!
I also . . .
Can I just tell you how liberating this all has been? Seriously it feels so good, I kind of don't want to stop! Honestly I think I will keep going, but probably just at a slower pace. It's so nice to have more space, be able to find things when I need them, and to let go of things that don't "spark joy"! And gosh the little things that were cluttering my mind . . . happy to have cleaned some of those up too.
Best of all, I am a firm believer that because everything is energy, when you let things go - it makes room for new, better opportunities! And let me tell you - given how much I have cleared and cleaned out of my house and my soul? Something Amazingly Awesome is headed my way! :)
IN FACT . . . it may have already arrived! The other thing I did in January was add one more element to my business - balancing out the personal development (Life Coaching), and Creativity (Photography) - with a Health & Wellness arm . . . I am now offering Hemp Oil! Hemp (or CBD) has been around for ages, and now that the industry is being deregulated - it really is the wave of the future as far as wellness is concerned. Here are a few bullet points:
While my company might not use that last claim in their marketing efforts, I've been using the oil for about a month now and have already noticed a big improvement in mood (which needed a big reset after New Years), and had a lightning speed recovery from a medical procedure I had been dreading. It's good stuff!
Not to worry - my newsletter isn't going to turn into a weekly ad for Hemp products (in fact this will probably be the extent of it), but if you're curious to learn more or join my team . . . I'm super excited about it and would love to share with you. Send me a note here.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the New Year - and keeping warm if you are in Seattle where there is SNOW!
