Reflections and Dreams for 2024

“Whew! We made it!”

This has been the most common phrase I have heard spoken from people in regard to this new year. It has become the “theme” that I have noticed most describes the transition from 2023 to 2024. That slogan alone has been telling me that last year may have been quite challenging for many, including myself.

Overcoming In 2023

If you have had a tough 2023, you’re not alone. For example, I, myself, had endured quite a few obstacles, including one of the most surprising of which was getting covid. As you may have known, the symptoms were not typical. You can watch my story and recovery video here.

I also had to deal with my cat faking his “unaliving” while the whole neighborhood full of cat lovers was involved. The entire ordeal spanned over months (story time!). I also dealt with some technical issues with my computer and camera which caused me to put some things on hold until it was all situated amongst a few other things. These situations may seem frivolous to some but at the time everything was happening, it was a big deal. Things just kept coming just about every month for quite a while and all the stress was piling up.

When it came to smashing goals from 2023, I was generally disappointed in not accomplishing as much as I wanted to for Thrivers Inspire Healing due to many circumstances, obviously. However, I still managed to get an interview with Rekhit Nebethet. We discussed some complimentary ways of healing, living in harmony with nature and addressing childhood issues. Thrivers Inspire Healing also accepted some amazingly helpful and insightful guest posts in 2023. Be sure to check them out!

2023 Introspection & Healing

Considering how my 2023 went, much of it was spent going through the motions, while evaluating my current place in life, where I’d like to be and what I must do to get there. The past few months felt more like hibernation than anything else. I took it easy and really honed in more on self-care and personal development. I took time to journal. I enjoyed meditations and I kept up with my physical health and mental health with routine appointments, eating right and more. All of this helped me to get through any challenges that came forth.

2023 was definitely about rest, recovery and reflection.

While I typically don’t set New Year’s goals as this time of year is more of a ‘be still and reflect’ time (as such is the energy of Winter), I still continue to evaluate how I’m doing on what I have planned for myself and the actions I can take to achieve them.

I do look forward to all the great things that 2024 has in store. I look forward to making more connections with all of you while improving content. I can also see that this time I’ve taken for my self-development paying off very well. It is very important we take the time to do this. It helps us to remain focused in our purpose.

I wish you all a very Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year!


Remember to stay active in your self-care!
Much Love,

  1. Sorry 2023 was a rough year but this year I hope you accomplish all your goals and with many blessings! I don’t typically set goals with high expectations, it’s just a lot of stress. I like to join in on the fun and just hope for the best, just like every day is a new day.. every year is a new year!

  2. I feel the same about the transition from 2023 to 2024- thank God we made it. I have also realized this time of the year is often full of anxiety for me because of all the planning I have to do for the year ahead. So I am learning to slow down and take my time when it comes to planning my goals. Thanks for sharing this post.

    1. It’s great you’re learning to take your time with your goal planning, Florence. I agree it can be quite stressful with a lot of pressure. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

  3. You endured 2023 like an honourable warrior. I’m glad you made adjustments as the year unfolded and that you increased self-care. I hope you are now fully recovered from Covid now and well. Happy 2024! Thank you for sharing your journey and perspective on 2023.

  4. I’m sorry to hear about how hard 2023 was for you. Admittedly 2023 was not my best year either. Let’s make the most of 2024!

  5. 2023 was a rough year for me too, but it ended with better prospects of things improving (which they are). I am sorry to hear that you too have had a bumpy twelve months; I hope you have a much better 2024 and meet your goals!

  6. 2023 was a rough ride for sure. I’m hoping to have a much smoother 2024. There are going to be bumps, but looking to get through them quickly as I can. I hope this year can be a smoother one for you as well.
