It’s the last day of 2017 and I have to say that I’m really, really glad to be through this year.

2017 has been the most challenging year I can remember experiencing as an adult. From some personal things going on with my family (that I haven’t yet totally talked about here but I do plan to share soon) to my habit of overbooking myself to the incredible unexpected growth of my animal communication school to my health and surgery, I’m excited to really move forward from the past 12 months – while also learning from them so that I don’t have to experience what I just experienced again.

I think that might be the hardest part of going through a tough time – remembering that when it’s over, there’s still work to do around the lesson behind that challenge.

So, in light of all of that – and to keep myself accountable, I’m going to write out the things that I’ve learned and that I’ll be taking with me into the new year. Here we go:

1. I can’t make everyone happy or comfortable. I can do whatever I can do from my end, but people have their own journeys as well. It’s not my responsibility to please everyone – only to do my best. Sometimes, part of another person’s journey IS their displeasure with me. (I grew up as a people pleaser so when someone is unhappy with me, this has typically thrown me for a big loop.)

2. No matter how in tune I am to others and their needs, I STILL need to take time for myself – and that time needs to be more than the bare minimum. Throughout 2017, I did a ton of helping others and a whole lot of not quite giving myself the “alone time” that my body and my mind need. This resulted in a crazy sleep schedule and a feeling of always wanting to go to bed (7:30pm for bed prevents me from having fun!).

3. It’s a super cool thing that I love about myself that I run so much of my business psychically. It means that I wake up in the morning with the most awesome idea that I need to carry out – immediately! It also means, though, that change is always happening. I’ve learned that I want to work WITH my intuition to create what I want in my life rather than being worked ON by my intuition. I get to say, “Hey – I think that part has to move slower so that I can actually handle it!”

Anyway, this post is about me understanding my last year – it’s about having the awareness of the things that have been going on in my life so that I can grow from them.

And this is what I’m always talking about right? AWARENESS! If we just keep going and going and going and we don’t stop to look around at what is happening and why, we never learn. We never grow. We never expand.

So, maybe you want to do the same thing today! What have YOU learned from your experiences the past year? Share below!

Love and Light,
Danielle
