Did you have an amazing New Year’s Eve? I spent mine with my handsome boyfriend and his beautiful daughter, as well as a bunch of great friends I met through my Crossfit gym and my boyfriend. It seems like it flew by…one minute, it was 7 p.m. and we had five hours left of 2014, and the next, we were in the last minute of it and counting down to 2015!! We made it to midnight and watched the ball drop in Times Square…well, Scott and I did. His daughter made it til about 11:55, LOL. She was so close!! And she slept through all the noise and the celebration!! She was zonked out til 9 a.m. this morning!
This time of year is always a time of reflection. We look at what we have accomplished over the past year – did we keep those resolutions? And we look forward to the upcoming year and what we want to accomplish. As I look back over the past year, I realize just how inspiring 2014 was for me. I started focusing more on me and what I wanted, instead of what I thought other people wanted for/from me. I also learned how to love myself more…not just the “good” parts of me, but EVERY part of me. And with all that, I met and fell in love with Scott, a fellow Crossfitter and someone who loves me for exactly who I am. He supports me and my growing business, both with the Health Coaching stuff and the doTerra oils. I’ve even gotten him interested in the oils!! He loves using them! And even better, his kids love them too!! His daughter came up to me this morning and said, “Whitney, I need some oils for my leg. I got a boo-boo.” How awesome is that??? Additionally, I started my training with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and have made great strides to becoming a Health Coach and living the life I’ve always wanted to live! In December, I was half-way through with the program and pre-certified to start seeing clients! I’m in the process of setting up my very own business (which is a HUGE step and only *slightly* intimidating!!). But I am beyond happy!! I made some huge life changes this year and I am so excited to continue moving forward and seeing what 2015 has in store for me!
I hope you look back on the past year and see great things, as well! If not, here’s to a fresh start in 2015. And here’s the thing – you don’t need the first day of the new year to make a fresh start. You can start any day of the week, month, year, etc. But this is the time of year for that fresh start! Make it a beautiful year! It’s day 1 of your 365 page book for 2015. How do you plan to write your book?
Here’s to an awesome, beautiful, productive 2015!!
With love and wellness,
