looking back and reaching forward

For me, 2017 was a year of ups, downs, and everything in between. Did I reach the goals that I set at the beginning of 2017? No, and that’s okay.
I had the pleasure of entering a beauty pageant for blind women, which was way out of my comfort zone. However, by taking that chance, I gave myself the opportunity to expand my social circle, increase my confidence, and have some fun all at the same time. I made a new friend who lived in the same small town as me for years, but I was too shy to get to know people.
Also, I pushed past some of my insecurities and increased my online presence. I gained clarity around what I wanted in my life and my business.
Also, I released a lot of stuck emotions that were holding me back. No, I did not reach my goals in 2017, but I built some really strong foundations that will help me to reach my goals in 2018.
If you didn’t reach your 2017 goals and intentions, have compassion for yourself. Perhaps you needed to accomplish some things before you could achieve your goals. Maybe those goals and intentions weren’t meant for you in the first place because you were meant to receive something even better. Either way, here’s to an amazing and blessed 2018!

why you may be struggling to ask the universe for what you want

When we wish to manifest something, it’s important that we understand our needs, wants, and desires. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds.
However, if you’re not used to asking for what you want, this first step may seem complicated. This can happen for a variety of reasons.
I remember when I was taught how to manifest, and I was asked what I wanted. Although I had an answer to that question, in the back of my mind, I was doubting whether or not I could really ask the universe for what I want without seeming greedy.
After all, if I got what I wanted, wasn’t I taking it away from someone else? I came to realize that I had just encountered two limiting beliefs that were keeping me from gaining clarity around what I wanted to attract into my life. Firstly, I was operating under the assumption that it is impolite to ask for too much. Secondly, I believed that if I allowed myself to receive abundance, I would be taking it from someone else.
After I learned that these assumptions were false, I was able to gain clarity about what I wanted to attract into my life.Once we let go of those disempowering beliefs and begin to adopt new ones, gaining clarity around your desires becomes easier.
