How I Celebrated The New Year 1 - How I Celebrated The New Year

Last year was without a doubt, the most exciting year of personal growth and transformation I have ever experienced.  It didn’t involve a wedding, or a baby or a new career.  It didn’t include buying a new house, exciting travel plans or moving interstate.  It didn’t cost anything, but a hell of a lot was gained.

I reconnected with myself.  I fell in love with this awesome chick that I had been beating down my entire life.  I embraced an extraordinarily capable body that has given me it’s best even when I treated it the worst.  I came into my power.  I spoke my truth.  I followed my heart.  Let me be clear when I say that not every day of 2016 was sunshine and rainbows – I had my fair share of tears and tribulation.  I did perhaps try to look at things in a different light though, and for that I am grateful!

As the new year quickly arrived, I made the conscious choice to continue on this path of self-discovery and wellness during 2017.  Why wouldn’t I with all that awesome shit going on?  Not only am I going to keep going, but I am going to keep stepping it up!  I have decided that 2017 is going to be unlike any other year in my life.  I am going to live more, rather than just exist.  I am going to feel more joy and less guilt.  I am going to step outside my comfort zone and experience more than I ever have before.  And, I decided that needed to start on January 1st, not in a month or so, or when I lost some weight, or any other thing I previously may have deemed necessary to be worthy.  So, I woke up on January 1st, and this happened…

How I Celebrated The New Year

It seemed like a glorious way to commemorate how far I have come in accepting and embracing myself, exactly as I am today and the perfect way to celebrate the new year and all it has to offer.  This moment in time represents freedom, courage, vulnerability and acceptance – essentials for self-love!  While I won’t necessarily be making a habit of going topless at the beach (or anywhere for that matter) it was a completely liberating and empowering experience, and one I may just continue as a yearly ritual to celebrate the new year!  Remember that life is for living fearlessly and fun!  Get out there – be bold, be proud, be you!
