Happy 2022 my friends! I'm not sure about you, but in the past, I would always get disappointed around the holidays.
I have huge expectations and the season never ever lives up to them.
This year, I took a whole new approach and just reminded myself when I was attaching to some sort of outcome I could never control and to just breathe and be in the moment.
I really focused on accepting what was coming up and just living in that space.. in reality.
Instead of focusing on what I wish was different, I just appreciated the unfolding.
Truthfully, I found myself many times wishing myself out of the experience and wanting to change it... then I would remind myself that that's just a waste of energy and what was happening now is perfect and exactly the way it's meant to be.
How do I know this?

I hear SO many women and mothers use this word.
"I just need to create more balance."
Deep thoughts by Becky Wells....
As I scroll through different social media sites, it's hard not to notice the great polarity that is pulsating in our world.
Different ends of the spectrum screaming at the top of their lungs or laptops, striving to prove that what they believe is true and influence or change those minds that believe something completely different.
The thing is... what is the truth? Have you ever really asked yourself that question?
Why is YOUR truth the truth and not someone else’s?
Our beliefs, or really what we deem to be “truth”, is merely a compilation of our filters, conditions, experiences, traumas, and belief-systems we’ve picked up throughout our entire lives.
We pick them up from our culture, family, friends, peers, media, society, and the ALL the information we chose to absorb and digest.
