Such a full circle moment, sitting here on the couch, staring at my (unfinished) Christmas tree, with Christmas music playing in the background and responding to messages for my New Year Bootcamp.
Last year this time I was STRESSED AF. This time of year is especially hard for me with the anniversary of my dads passing and also his birthday which happens to be Christmas Day — not to mention all of the holiday expectations (gifts, traveling everywhere, etc) and the fact that it feels like 10pm when it’s really 5pm.
This year, we decided to be intentional with gift-giving. Setting a certain amount to be spent on each person and only getting something that makes us think of them. This year I’m able to focus on what makes me happy, take days off when needed and not stress about how we’re going to make everything happen. I’m more positive than I’ve ever been in my life and even though there are still some hard days, they’re FAR outweighed by the incredible ones. I woke up this morning with this intense feeling of gratitude. Like my heart had butterflies, feeling. 🙏🏼When I talk to people who haven’t seen me in a while they ask what changed, what has happened for me to feel so good? 👉🏼I found the most incredible group of women. Most of them I met on Instagram, going from complete strangers to talking every. single. day. All different walks of life and we somehow stumbled upon each other and just clicked <3 Want to know something funny? I use to think meeting people online was for the birds. Like how can you be friends with someone you’ve never actually met in person? Oh how I just laugh at myself now. These people ARE my people and had I stood with the idea that you can’t find real friends on the internet, I wouldn’t be half the person I am today. This community has helped me in more ways than I could ever explain and I will forever be grateful for the love and support.
So sitting here, chatting with women about my upcoming bootcamp, I wonder how they must feel. Excited, nervous, anxious or hesitant... what I can’t wait for them to realize — girl it’s just about to get good 💗
