“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.: – Nelson Mandela

Last year I started on a path of transformation – putting myself first, going out of my comfort zone….living!!! 2019 was the year of Christine – going out of my comfort zone personally and professionally. I tried new things, I went new places – I challenged myself. There were tears and laughter, successes and growth opportunities (I won’t call them failures). I tend to be very hard on myself and I am learning to be OK with who I am, to love me as I am. What a feeling that is – to love myself as I am!

2020 is my year of Expansion! Expanding on the growth and progress I made in 2019. Expanding my comfort zones, expanding my gratitude, expanding my experiences. I am shedding old beliefs and negative self-talk. I am dancing to the music. I am letting go and realizing for all the angst I put into some stuff – it really didn’t matter after all – so why did I waste my time and energy fretting over things that did not matter – things I had no control over. I see situations differently. I see things as something I CAN DO. I will no longer look at things and wonder if I can or mentally tell myself I’m not capable. There is no limit to what I can do! This mental shift to positive thoughts and self-love is freeing and uplifting. It is expanding me and allowing me to find my true self and my fullest potential.

I am excited for 2020! Looking forward to all the opportunities that are yet to present themselves. I can see them as opportunities now – not as a challenge I am not worthy of – and that is an amazing feeling. I am all in! I want to know what I am capable of and live that life – as Nelson Mandela said. 

I challenge each of you to love yourself and find what you are truly capable of.
