As I sit here reflecting on 2018 I find a million different truths and lessons I’ve experienced springing to mind – this took some effort to STOP myself from writing a book on each one and condense them into 12 (ok, well maybe 14ย ๐Ÿ˜…)

This year has truly been one of deepening connection, coming home to all parts of me, and discovering higher meaning outside myself – I love every single one of you who have been a part of this 2018ย Wild journey, my cup is overspilling with gratitude for lighting the way.

With that said, here are my 14 biggest takeaways:

โ€ข 1. When you change your narrative from โ€œMy Mindโ€ and โ€œMy Bodyโ€ to โ€œThe Mindโ€, โ€œThe Bodyโ€ – something magical happens and like โ€œopen sesameโ€, the doors to liberation swing wide open

โ€ข 2. Turbans feel greatย ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿป, itโ€™s my most trustworthy tool to help me find my center – and it keeps my head together, literallyย ๐Ÿ˜›

โ€ข 3. Our coping mechanisms arenโ€™t really the monsters we label them to be – actually they once kept us alive in times of need. What a damn good job they do.

โ€ข 4. Freedom from addictions IS possible, we just have to be willing to face them head on, a listen to what simmers underneath.

โ€ข 5. Instead of using food to AVOID discomfort, Iโ€™ve been learning how to use it as a lens to see almost everything I had (and have been) avoiding

โ€ข 6. The answer to โ€œhow am I going to get through thisโ€ – is allowing yourself to cry, to wail, to feel as if your heart is being stabbed and BREATHE on through it – I promise you got this.

โ€ข 7. The Body is one brilliant creation, and having one IS Heaven on Earth

โ€ข 8. I am not the Mind, I am not the Body, I am not the Thoughts, I am not the EGO – I simply have a mind, body, thoughts, and ego, and theyโ€™re my greatest guides

โ€ข 9. The other person is you – people are the greatest reflection of whatโ€™s going on inside of youย ๐Ÿ”ฎ

โ€ข 10. I found ME on my Yoga mat – and I will never see this life the same again, the doors to mySelf have been opened.

โ€ข 11. The pause between an inhale and exhale – is where youโ€™ll find a lot of answers, a lot, and they come in all sorts of feels and wisdom.

โ€ข 12. I started to examine the intention between my saying yes when I really meant no – and although Iโ€™m still practising, I know that every time I trust my โ€œnoโ€, I stand for who I truly am and beat the disease to please.

โ€ข 13. Finding a Tribe of open-minded, crazy cool humans – helps give you the courage to be the most authentic version of you, you were always intended to be.

โ€ข 14. You CAN do anything you put your WHOLE self into – I never imagined I’d be waking at 4am, taking a cold shower doing daily meditation. Helping to launch 2 #1 best selling books with more to come, and dancing in a room of strangers like no one is watching.

I love love LOVE you all, and I’m giving you the biggest virtual squeeze!!

Sat nam beautiful peeps!ย โค

And please share with me some of the greatest things you’ve loved about your 2018ย
