One month is officially over in 2021. I have to admit, it wasn't as slow as it usually is. Maybe I have a more renewed sense of life. I hope to share my monthly thoughts with you guys this year, as I want to be more intentionally reflective. So, I guess this is part brain dump, part reflection, part things that I loved, and part things I'm looking forward to in the upcoming months. Let's go!
I want to start by saying that I spent some time before the year truly started to set my intentions straight. What I really want to accomplish, and how I want to grow into a better version of Nishita in 2021--a truer version of her. A lot of my thought went into where did I shy away from being great? What habit patterns do I need to break this year to really be me. That wasn't the easiest process--admitting to myself and people I love dearly that I messed up, time and time again. That I didn't show up as the person they know me to be, time and time again. But, it was a MUCH needed process. Because, how can we truly grow if we're not fessing up to the things that make us weak instead of bold and strong? I made it a point that this year I was going to be courageous and bold, and live everyday filled with so much love and grace, because that truly is who I feel I am.
I truly feel that I showed UP for January! I have never been this productive, disciplined, and filled with joy. Well, I'm sure I have been, but it's been a while since I've seen this Nishita--just amped for life and what each day holds. I felt I was more present with myself, more intentional in the way I spent my time, and with those in my life.
I am so filled with hope at what the next month will bring. There is still much work that needs to be done. Nothing great is accomplished overnight. But, I anchor myself in knowing that love will always prevail. Good will always prevail. And I ask myself every morning, and pray that I can live with these from moment to moment.
I hope that January brought a ray of light--no matter how strong. And that that ray of light will guide you into this new month with a fresh outlook and a sincere love for all that is wonderful.
Here's to you, dear friends.
