"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow" Audrey Hepburn
This morning I caught up with a friend. She is bursting with business ideas but stifled in overwhelm. “What if the idea doesn’t work?” What if it’s not what I really want to do?” “What if.. what if?”
The thing is…. I can relate to this woman. Why? Because I see so much of me in her story. I am all too familiar with the very thing that is holding her back. It’s an emotion that drives all of us in some way but in our case it cleverly disguises itself in the mask of perfection… FEAR.
So we talked about our mutual disdain and love affair with perfection and fear. The craziest thing is this woman is incredibly talented. She has created several highly successful businesses in the past using her creativity, intuition and business nouse. Over our chai the coach in me came out and asked her to reflect on those businesses and what drove her to start them. She reflected for a short moment and smiled when she reminded herself of the catch-phrase she used when the businesses were getting underway…. "FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY!!!" And in the moment of expressing that, she lightened. She realized that she just has to take the first steps and not judge!
2017 is a powerful year for putting your ideas into action and finding new ways of being.
It's about being the authentic version of you. Not the afraid, limiting your potential version but the fully expressed, in line with what's most important to you version of you.
2017 is a year of new beginnings. It’s a year for doing things differently. It’s a year for planting seeds that you can nurture and watch grow over the course of the next 9 years.
In numerology, (where numbers have their own unique vibration, qualities and cycles) 2017 is a ONE year. To calculate a year’s number, you simply add all the digits in the year until you arrive back at a primary number. Eg. 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10; 1 + 0 = 1
The ONE year represents the beginning of a brand new 9 year cycle.
A ONE year is a time to plant the seeds for intention for the next 9 years – tap into your hearts deepest desires, dreams and visions for all areas of your life. What you set up this year, will shape the next 9 years of your life. So it's a powerful time to Imagine what kind of trees you’d like to have around you in 2026. Don’t worry about what others might think of them…. The only thing that matters is that you connect with them at a heart level.
Be brave, be bold and dream large. It’s a wonderful time to trust your ideas, nurture them and start acting on them….. even if it scares you half to death!!!
