If you’re anything like me, you might not be great at keeping New Year’s Resolutions. I used to fuss at myself for not having the will power to make the changes in my life, but now I know better.
You see, my personality-self loves when I list goals and make plans. My personality-self loves when I use my mind to make all the decisions.
But, there is a deeper, wiser version of me that balks when I only make decisions with my head.
If you are one of those people who need help finishing things or staying on track, this post is not for you.
Today, I am talking to all my folks out there who rule the world from their desks (home or office). The lovely ladies and gentlemen who get shit done. Who juggle kids, work, exercise, and social obligations. The people who can book spring break vacations while grocery shopping. The women who read their latest book club book on the Peloton.
I love a new calendar. I am thrilled that paper calendars and planners are having a comeback. I’ve missed them!
The new fancy calendars with dots, to-do lists, planners, and inspirational quotes are incredible. They’re beautiful creations, but they’re not for me.
It’s super easy for me to become a taskmaster when I have too specific of a plan. I’ll work like hell to get it done.

Follow your bliss. This advice used to really piss me off. I would think to myself, “if I knew how to follow my bliss, don’t you think I’d be doing it.”
I was super frustrated and found myself spinning in circles trying to figure it out, but it’s way easier than I made it.
The secret most folks don’t know–Bliss hides in plain sight. It’s in the most random things and in ordinary places.
We have some things to talk about- things that you have been pondering, wondering, and searching for. You have a lot of questions about how life works, why you’re here, and what it all means. On top of those big questions that pull at you, you’re also juggling life as it comes. It’s a lot.
Here’s the thing…
The reason you feel this pull, the reason you have all these big and little questions about your life is that you are remembering who you truly are and it’s not what you previously thought.
You create your own reality.
Accept what is.
Live the life you want.
Surrender to the now.
Your life is what you make of it.
Deliberate creation and accepting what “is” seems like two very different philosophies, but are they?
The question baffled me for a long time.
I wanted to believe in my power to create my own life while simultaneously feeling a pearl of deep wisdom telling me to allow my life to unfold and make peace.
