Thank you all for joining me on Super Saturday for my birthday. To be able to share willPower on my birthday was TRULY special.
The great thing about getting older, is getting wiser and more in tune with the important things in life.
I chose the opportunity of my birthday willPower class to weave in life lessons learned this past year into class, broken into five different themes and songs that have touched my heart. Birthdays are a powerful time to reflect on a year of personal growth and take into account all the experiences of the previous 12 months. Below, I recap the top 5 lessons and songs I shared of this past year for me and hope that by sharing it helps you see lessons in your own life and opportunities to grow and reflect.
1. Honor and see the strengths in yourself and others.
We all are born with special gifts and strengths. Look for that within yourself and see that specialness in others. It is a good thing that we are all unique.
Song: “This is Me” by Keala Settle, The Greatest Showman Ensemble, Dave Aude
2. Be proud to be a work in progress.
Deep self work, having coaches/mentors, prayer, meditation, listening to the whispers – it is all such important work. Being a work in progress can get uncomfortable and tough at times, but it is some of the most important work we can do. Apologize if you aren’t working on your progress!
Song: “Priceless” by KING & COUNTRY
3. Protect and celebrate your energy and spirit.
It is vitally important who you are around and what energy you let into your life. Guard yourself to the negative influences out there, but don’t stay so guarded that you dim your own light. from shining to others.
Song: “Joy” by KING & COUNTRY
4. Faith over fear!
I have never felt so connected to God and it feels SO good. Pray hard and listen even harder. This year I prayed, journaled, and read a devotional every single day. And that stuff is life changing. Handing over any fear, anxiety, and control and surrendering to a higher power is magical.
Song: “Reason” by Unspoken
5. Live ON Purpose!!
This mantra hit me like a ton of bricks in October and will serve as our Mantra for 2023. Wake up each day and live your life ON purpose. What are your core values, your non-negotiables, your to-be list that you want to show up and serve this world as!!
Song – “This Could Change Everything” by Francesca Battistelli
Thank you again for helping me celebrate another trip around the sun, and for our VFit community which has helped me live out my passion for self care through our platform. It’s truly an honor and one I hold dearly each and every day. I’m so thankful to get to do this and grow with you and as you’ve seen, share this with my family through the years as well.
