“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.
Thrivers Inspire Healing in 2023
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.
New Year’s 2024 Dream
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!
