There’s no question these are strange times.
As we head into the holiday season with the prospect of a new year, acknowledging what you are aware of can help shape your forward progress.
I’m aware many people, including myself, are feeling unsettled, conflicted, and uncertain.
I’m aware some people have just given up and are saying, “Whatever…”.
I’m aware others are taking back their power and doing what feels right to them.
I’m aware it’s gotten colder, the leaves are falling and animals (and some people, too) are ready for hibernation mode.
I’m aware traditions can shape our expectations.
I’m aware I get cranky when I’m tired or hungry.
I am aware change is all around us.
What are you aware of right now?
One of the cool things about awareness is it is the first step in the process of change. What change are you ready to make? What do you need to become aware of to facilitate this change?
Awareness can create the foundation for what you want to create in the new year. For example, I am aware my business is shifting, and I am attracting a different caliber of client. This awareness provides me with insights into the type of programs and other offerings I want to create that excite both, me, AND my clients!
What do you want to be aware of as you prepare for your holiday season? How do you want to shape your new year based on what you’re aware of?
As you think about these questions, take some uninterrupted time, either in nature or in another special, peaceful place, to first decide what you want. Then look at what you need to be aware of to design what you desire.
The changes you choose to make may impact one or many aspects of your life, such as the way you conduct business, the way you interact with your family, and even the relationship you have with yourself! Being aware of these potential impacts may influence the direction(s) you choose.
Deciding what you want and what you need to be aware of to make that happen, is the perfect gift to give yourself this holiday season!
I wish you peace and wonder this holiday season!
