DEFY GRAVITY


What a ride it has been! Within days, the new year will come and in review of 2016, my experience has been filled with new faces, strangers turned into friends, facing fears, personal challenges, overcoming mountains...literally and figuratively, exploration, long working hours and simple living.For all the moments of pure exhaustion, physically, creatively and emotionally, there are more moments of accomplishment, adventure and pure fun.

My theme going into the next year is "defy gravity"...overcome the weight of everything that brings us down. Whether that be our circumstances, other individuals, our personal flaws and challenges, we can lighten that load through understanding, acceptance, forgiveness and a whole lotta faith. Our hearts may break and trust may be severed, but the true test is how we handle each situation and overcome them. One thing I have quickly learned from arriving at this crossroads was truly dealing with the extra weight in my little heart that I have carried with me. It may have hindered some healing and made facing some personal or professional fears and challenges more difficult. As fast-paced as life can be, it actually has slowed down my mind enough to recognize the areas I have neglected in past years and give me some moments of clarity.

To do list:
forgive
explore new territory
give work my best effort
not just meet, but connect with new friends
heal
live a healthier lifestyle - spirit, mind and body
treat myself
go beyond the surface
be the best version of myself
reflect
overcome mountains
get a stronger mind and body
have fun
drink less coffee
put smiles on faces
lend a helping hand
open my heart
keep my mind open
do what I love and love what I do
learn
grow
eat more apples
have more adventures
get rid of the extra weight (figuratively and probably literally, too)
be myself
love myself
love others
challenge myself
accept others
and defy gravity.
