Throughout December, I look back on the past year and look forward to the next year, too.
I wrap up the old and make space for the new.
One of the things I like to reflect on is what the overarching theme of the past year was.
My 2017 theme was about giving myself even more of what I need to thrive.
For me, this meant that I added a monthly Hermit Week to my schedule:
Every month, I have one week without ANY appointments at all.
(In case this hermit-thing is new to you:
A couple of years ago I turned myself from a Crappy Hermit into a Happy Hermit by building my entire business around my desire to have A LOT of alone time (You can read all about that in this blog.)
Over the years, my maximum of 4 appointments per week turned into 3 appointments, and often even less than that.
Still, at the beginning of this year, I felt a deep desire for even MORE space & quiet.
And the Monthly Hermit Week was born.
Again, I gave myself what I deeply wanted & needed. And again, this was ALSO very good for my business & results.
This is true for everyone ALWAYS.
It’s true for you, too:
Whatever YOU need to thrive, is what your BUSINESS needs to thrive, too.
But I often see that women deny themselves the very things they most deeply crave.
You might be doing that, too.
Because you don’t believe it’s possible to get what you want.
Because you think what your business needs is not the same thing that you need.
Because you think that what you need is something that will actually hurt your business.
Because you don’t believe it’s possible to give yourself what you need AND still grow your business, too.
But the truth is this:
The more you give yourself what you need to thrive, the more your business will thrive, too.
Even when you don’t know how to do it, or if it’s even possible.
It all starts with acknowledging what you need, deciding to give that to yourself, and let the HOW unfold step-by-step.
As it ALWAYS does. Because this is how manifesting anything simply WORKS.
What do YOU need to thrive?
More free time?
No longer working with people 1-1?
A massage once a month?
One afternoon per week off to do something fun?
Give yourself a raise?
Take 6 weeks off in the summer?
Don’t deny yourself what you need to thrive for fear it might hurt your business, or because you think you don’t have the time or the money for it.
The money you need, the time you need, the support you need, and the actions you need to take WILL SHOW UP.
But ONLY AFTER you made the decision to give it to yourself and make it work one way or the other.
You can take it step by step.
In fact, if what you want desire is something ‘big’ – either in the amount of work it takes, or in the necessary inner healing, shifts & growth – it takes time to unfold.
But if you never start, you’ll never finish.
Start feeling into what you truly need to thrive.
And decide to give it to yourself.
Because without it?
Your business won’t thrive either.
And you won’t be able to manifest more of whatever you want more of next year.
(Or at a VERY high cost: getting the results without enjoying the journey NOR the results once you have them.)
To honoring your soul and your needs,
