Can you believe that 2015 is only a couple days away?? I can't believe the past year has gone by so quickly but I could not be more excited for whats to come. Personally, I feel that 2014 was a prepertation of sorts- soul searching, removing emotional blocks, and really truly trusting in whatever my destiny may be, and after talking to friends and family over the holidays about this I found out they were feeling the same way.
I have been on my path of personal growth and self transformation for two years now, and all through 2014 there were constant reminders that I am exactly where I need to be. And after nearly a decade of being riddled with anxiety and the over whelming feeling that I was missing out on what my life was "supposed" to be, it is amazing to feel so centered and confident in knowing that what is meant for me will never miss me.
Synchronicity was everywhere this year, from repetitive numbers, to certain words reappearing, and random things that stopped me in my tracks- like the silver pendant I found on the ground that read "your guardian angel is protecting you" after I had begun doing my Angel card readings. Or after a 10 mile hike in the UP this summer, where I stood over looking the beautiful Minor's Castle, I took a moment to breathe it all in, closed my eyes for a second and looked down at my hands that were on the wooden railing and when I moved my hand I saw that there was "Julia" carved into it! I almost wanted to cry, it was too perfect, I had been standing there for several minutes with my hand covering it before I even knew my name was carved there. It was the universe speaking to me and letting me know that I was exactly where I needed to be.
I'm moving into 2015 feeling calm, connected to something greater then myself, with the intention to give without expecting a thing in return, and genuinely happy. I'm taking all the lessons that 2014 had bestowed upon me and leaving all emotions attached to those lessons behind- no time for fear, defensiveness, or the feeling of being owed something, whether it be a thank you or an apology. I only want to give love and be at peace with all aspects of my life.
I've made lists of specially what I'm leaving in 2014 and what I will be taking into 2015, I recommend this to everyone, especially if you feel you have been carrying something around that does not serve your highest good. You can even burn the list of what you're leaving behind for added closure- however, I like to look back on my journals and see that what I had wrote down actually came true.
Wishing everyone who may read this- inner peace, compassion for yourself and others, and contentment.
