What a huge year of achievements, accomplishments and amazing people who’ve come into my sphere of experience.
There’s been a lot that has happened and reviewing it in earnest is one of my favourite parts of December wind down.

2017 - Happy New Year!!!
It’s been a tough year without a doubt, some very emotional events have occured that have affected me, my family and my friends, not to mention the world’s 2016 event list that is a spectacular and fun experience (see John Oliver’s varying names for the 2016 presidential election)… By the last one, it was my absolutely favourite part of each show.
The consciousness shifting parts of this year have been utterly divine. As a group we’ve really started to pay attention where it was needed and to show respect where it’s deserved. There’s been such a strong undercurrent of movement, of awareness and of course of change. It’s a wonderous thing to behold. But for me, personally, this year is the culmination of many years of seeking. I started my journey into personal development when I was 17, but started my courses when I was 25 (about 8 years ago now). The last 9 years has seen the most amazing changes, growth and experiences. Trips all over the world and even a baby! I would not have been able to tell you where I would be 9 years ago, It was 2 years into working at BHP in Adelaide. I was just into a different relationship and had no idea what I wanted in life.
It’s funny to be on the otherside and realise that not much has changed, yet so much has changed. Perspective is such a grand thing to have. I feel like I am that consciousness – that awareness of the infinite when I step into those old memories and experience what was happening for me at varying stages of this journey. It’s actually so peaceful to see the ‘sameness’ and ‘always-ness’ of that conscious awareness.

The attitude of trust and then the attitude of ‘facing my fears’. (or at least being willing to!)
And finally the times I have been most successful this year have been…
When I put myself first.
My number one intention for 2017 is – To put myself first (again) – Self Love.
What this shouldn’t imply is that anyone ever asked me to put them ahead of me – no one ever really does that, it’s my perceptions or preconceived ideas of what ‘that type of person that I want to be would do’ (usually based on some stupid hollywood stereotype). I just fell into the old trap that has become a bit of a pattern for me, of gotta heal the whole world before I can just enjoy life. It’s a crap perspective and it’s never done me any good.
