Lots of Enthusiasm Out There

I have declared that my word for 2018 is "Enthusiasm." I also did a Facebook quiz to find out my word and it turned out to be "Change." I think both are in order...to tell the truth.

I have been struggling for a little while with my words. Both verbally and in written form. Mostly because my journey right now is very inward and personal. But it has become a problem. I have been internalizing things for so long now, that they are making themselves known in physical and emotional ways such as skin and stomach problems and simple depression. So I have decided to take control in a gentle and dynamic way by seeking some coaching of my own in the form of counseling and getting back to yoga and simply treating myself as a priority. I've been causing myself a lot of worry and grief based on past situations that no longer apply to me, but that I had attached my identity to. How does a person move forward enthusiastically, and vulnerably, when they realize they can be something else...something healthier and happier? This is my current journey.

I've been going against the current in many ways...so I've decided to relax and let things flow for a while.

I was asked to come up with some core values in my counseling and the first one that popped into my head was "Enthusiasm." I don't know if that can be considered a core value or not, but I realized it is very important to me. I want to be enthusiastic about things. And I have such beautiful things happening in my life right now...it's crazy for me to let the negative voices in my head ruin my enthusiasm for them.

Enthusiastically Yours,
