2014 HAS BEEN SUCH AN INCREDIBLE YEAR FOR ME.
After having graduated in 2013 and realizing just how far away from the life I had imagined I’d have after graduating – I promised myself to never feel comfortable. What a weird ass thing to promise, I know.
Let me give you some background. At the end of 2013 I met up with my mentor Sid Naidu. I told him that I’d be moving across the country to live with Kolter in BC and he could tell that I was less than enthused about the idea, cause I really had no clue what this move would mean for my career. He told me that the move was going to be what I made of it, and that my life would begin at the end of my comfort zone.
Hence, my promise to leave my comfort zone, and never feel comfortable (maybe not never. But, at least for my 20s!)
I also spoke with my other mentor/Fairy god-Mother Jen Gonzales who told me that she was absolutely not worried about me. This helped me to realize that it was about damn time I regained faith in myself!
The post-grad grind to find a job, and constantly begging someone to believe in you every single time that you submit a resume, can realllly take a toll on your confidence; and that was the state of mind that I was in at the end of 2013. Really disappointed in myself and convinced that I’d set my standards far too high, and told far too many people my impossible goals.
Luckily, 2014 has taught me to DREAM EVEN BIGGER! From the launch of this website/blog on January 3, 2014 to today – I have received some of the greatest tests of my faith (in God, in my family, in my relationships, in myself!) and have therefore received some of my greatest lessons as well!
I didn’t set any goals/revelations for this year. I knew I’d be moving and didn’t have any idea what the job market or people out there would be like, so instead I created My Core Desired Feelings for the New Year. For 2014 I wanted to feel:
Healing, Fierce, Expansive, Affluence
(Check out my blog posts here)
My theme for the year was Cool Runnings (hahaha) meaning, allowing things to happen naturally – Peace Be the Journey!
Here is my Reverse Bucket List for all of the amazing events I was blessed to experience this year – which were totally in line with my Core Desired Feelings
