At the end of each year, it’s always nice to really check in with yourself and reflect on all that happened—what you experienced on both positive and negative sides.
We are all trying to live our own process; and, in doing so, I like to think of each 365-day stretch as an opportunity for growth and learning, a chance to try to manifest what’s next. Back in September, someone I trust told me that the next two years would be the best manifestation period of my whole life; she said to really focus on what I want. That could be small things or big things, but the key is to take control and meditate on everything that I deem important. I know now that this is my “job” for the upcoming year, and it’s a job I will take very seriously.
I have worked extremely hard for the last 20 years to get to this place—a place where I can choose my story, my journey and where I want my life to lead. I know what is truly important and purposeful to me. At this point, I only do things if I feel passionate and inspired, if they make me a better person and will teach me or educate me further. These are all of the different driving forces that make me, well, me.
And, for that reason and a couple more, a little over six years ago, I realized that I needed to share the information that I had collected with the world. I believed in the importance of what I’d learned—and continue to learn—so much that I wanted to create a business, a lifestyle and a product line around it. This has been my passion project; what keeps me grounded and what keeps me inspired.
For me, Live The Process is special, as it’s the culmination of all the information and beauty that I think is meaningful and will positively impact other people’s lives. All of these pieces of the puzzle were the gifts that I wanted to share with everyone who is on a similar path as me: people who are curious, looking for information, a way to better themselves in a truly beautiful way.
And, so, this January, my present to all of you is what we call “Giving The Process:” The start of each year is a chance to reflect, refresh and recalibrate. It’s a chance to begin strong, to find equilibrium and joy despite the chaos. To support you in that pursuit of balance for 2018, for each of the first 30 days of the year, we will be highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to start the New Year as your most realized and powerful self. On January 31, one charmed reader will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card to Live The Process.
Our goal is to give you tools that help you take a moment to breathe, to learn, to care for yourself, to center yourself in your life. They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—we want yours to be about complete self-care, so you can manifest all you want and need in 2018.
Thank you to all of you who have supported me and Live The Process this year. I am so grateful. Hopefully, we have been able to bring some added beauty, depth and spirituality into your everyday life.
Wishing everyone the best year ahead! May you make life about the journey, stay present and Live The Process.
