Are you feeling heavy and weighed down by the weights of 2018? Are you still carrying things from last year; hurts and disappointments, broken dreams and heartache, unforgiveness?
I don't know about you, but when you carry a bag, even if it has wheels on it for too long, it becomes heavier and heavier, until you can't carry it any longer. There is only so long, that even the strongest individual can carry a weight, before they have to stop. The thing is, we then have a choice to stop and rest a bit and then slowly continue on still trying to carry the same weight, before we have to stop again or we can make a choice to leave the bag behind.
Some of you might be saying, but I don't want to leave the bag behind, because that person hurt me and I can't let it go. You can't? But you're holding on so tight to something that is holding you back. Why? Someone once said that unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting it to hurt the other person, but thing is it only hurts you. I say if you have that much resilience and determination to hold onto something that hurt you, then you have more than enough courage to let it go, so you can be free.
There may be still others of you who are holding onto something that you don't want to let go of, because you see it as the last straw of hope that something will change. Dare I challenge you, that hope need not be a weight dragged behind you. You can have a hope in a sure foundation, that those dreams can come to pass, without dragging the weight of it behind you.
2019 is a new year and maybe its time to let go of some things, so you can run free into 2019 and be all that you were made to be. When was the last time you just danced and ran free like no one was watching? Maybe in 2019 its time to do it again (or even for the first time).
If you need help working through some things and letting go of past hurts and planning for your future, then send me a P.M. for your first free session.

When was the last time you stopped to take care of yourself? Reflecting on this tree, as I walked the other day and realised that it is healthy and strong because it is taking in nutrients and water. As soon as it fails to take these in or the supply stops, then it fails to grow and after a time it begins to wither and become un effective and eventually it will not be able to survive. Well it may sustain just one branch and never grow, but it will never reach its full potential.
Have you been like this tree and taking in good nutrients through good self-care or have you been giving out and not taking anything in? In life we need a balance to enable us to continue to grow and be effective. I don't know about you, but I want to keep growing and being effective, so it means I need to look after myself with good food, sleep, rest and healthy activities that will help me rest.
Why not join a 6 week self-care challenge. It will help you put in to practice some good care goals that will help you live at your best for 2019. Just $125, which is not much money to invest on looking after you. And even better the first 2 people who sign up will pay just $25 and the next 3 will pay just $50. Flexible and suitable for all ages. Facilitated by Indi who is a qualified counsellor and trainer.
