EP 331: Hello 2020, Excited To Meet You!
It’s the final episode in the Journey Into the Wild Soul!!
If you’ve been tuning in over the last several weeks, you know we’ve covered all kinds of juicy things, from deep committed practice and the importance of integration, to surrender, releasing, trust, receptivity, passion, purpose, love, truth and how EMBODIMENT is one of the most effective ways to bring it all together and LIVE it.
Might sound like a tall order, but it’s actually quite elegant and practical when you get down to it!
In today’s episode rather than a year in a review or an entire preview of 2020, I’ve framed it in a way that integrates the immense reflection, integration and clarity December provided for me.
I have mentioned elsewhere that I was REALLY into moving into a new decade.
What I got really into was reflecting on who I had become, the lessons I had learned and the things, habits, people and etc I had completed with over that decade.
In that reflection were a few things that had to do with BEING SUPER HONEST WITH MYSELF about what has worked in the past and what actually honors who I am now.
It’s always exciting when new truths reveal themselves, and sometimes it’s also inconvenient, but that’s life isn’t it – the best choices are not always the easiest ones to follow or make.
When you are connected to your body, heart, soul and inner authority – you just know better than to ignore the nudges, though.
One last note – just because 2020 has begun, doesn’t mean you can’t do this type of reflection yourself if you have yet to or find yourself with the desire after listening to this episode.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!

“It’s always exciting when new truths reveal themselves, but sometimes it’s also hella inconvenient.”
“Just because you flipped over a calendar doesn’t mean that everything that’s ever happened in your life has actually gone anywhere.”
“No comparing no idealizing anything I’m going to share, just you know, take it in and apply it where it feels appropriate for you.”
“Things I’m doing more of in 2020: focusing on creating the changes I want to see. Things I’m doing less of in 2020: centering brokenness and dysfunction.”
“Add in more positive, healthy, effective things that work for you in your life because it will feel good, and you’ll feel better, and it’ll crowd out the choices that weren’t necessarily serving you as well.”
“If we’re going to create a solution,we can’t pretend the thing is not happening.”
“What is actually enough? What do we actually need to live?”
“By lowering that goal, and picking something that’s actually sufficient for me, it provides me with the feeling of actually hitting my target, which feels so good.”
“I have found that adding small things that make me feel better, and encouraged me to continue adding on more positive choices that work for me, eventually crowd out the choices that weren’t so great, and those just fade away.”
