Affirmations for a Prosperous New Year | Wonderfully Made Podcast

img_4244-edited

We’re getting very close to ushering in a new year, which is exciting. Many of us will set goals, but many of us will have forgotten about these goals even before next year is even halfway completed.

 

Why does this happen?

 

I believe one of the main problems with goals and new year’s resolutions, is the overwhelm from not having an action plan. People set goals such as “get more healthy” or “lose 15 pounds” or “get my career on track”, but with no action plan or steps, how can we get there—and how can we know if we even have arrived?

 

Instead of the simple goals themselves, it’s good for us to break things down into steps, habits and behaviors. Do you want to change your spending habits, eating habits, how you spend your time? Ultimately it is our habits that give us results one way or another.

 

To help you visualize and focus on behavior for success, I’ve created affirmations for a prosperous new year. I zero in on some of the behaviors that really lead to us living our best life—being accountable, being creative, being open to constructive criticism, and more.

Are you ready to visualize and plan your best year yet? Listen to the episode now.

 

 

The Things We Carry

We at times can find ourselves in a negative cycle, negative thought process, or just generally do not feel a sense of hope.

The beliefs that lead us to a sense of hopelessness are a part of the things we carry, metaphorically. Like a well-worn backpack filled with items that are personal to us, we often travel through life with beliefs, ideas, and convictions which weigh us down. Our belief system is meant to guide our actions and ideas– but at times, our beliefs can grab us and keep us unmoving, stuck, paralyzed, even by a narrative that may not even be based on truth.

So while we may not be able to accelerate our time of transition, in what ways can we change our perspective to give us a sense of stability or to have a grounding effect? We’ll discuss this in my latest episode, “The Things We Carry“.

This episode includes a visualization exercise that may help you see yourself setting aside anything that does not help you move forward on your journey in life.

Living Intentionally: Why am I Doing What I’m Doing?

Isn’t it crazy how much technology has advanced over the past few years? When I think about how far different platforms I use have come, I am amazed. A lot of platforms and technology have really helped to make life easier as well as make business easier.

One thing that is common, is the auto play feature. Whether you’re watching Hulu, YouTube, or some other media outlet,  you don’t have to think. All you have to do is sit there and keep watching. In fact, autopilot features extend beyond what’s available on the internet. Even your car will drive for you.

As convenient as all of this is. shutting our brains off is not good. If things are being done for us, we don’t have to think about why we are doing what we are doing, and that can be dangerous.

In my latest podcast episode, I discuss this very subject and share some tips on how we can live more intentionally.

Self Care: Let Go of the Guilt | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

I have gotten a lot of messages over the years thanking me for the reminder of self care, all the while telling me it is either not feasible or not realistic for them to put into practice.

I hear women and men of all ages list the things they have to do and who they have to do them for, with not so much as a mention of self.

How do we propose we get all these things done day-in and day-out without taking the time we need to recharge ourselves?

In this latest podcast episode, I explore what self care means and how we can let go of feelings of guilt associated with pushing back from all of our responsibilities and doing what is best for us.

Rise | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

A new day requires new encouragement. I believe so many of us start out with intentions of being positive and ridding ourselves of fear and self doubt– but then circumstances come. Sometimes we are so focused on circumstances, we are unable to see a clear path from where we currently are, to where we know we want to be.

I tweeted something recently:

If we can change our perspective, we can find ourselves fueled by faith and self-love rather than fear and self-doubt.

I created my most recent podcast– Rise Up to remind all of us (myself included) that if we have breath in our bodies, we have a mission that is not complete. I hope it encourages you!
