New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

 New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

Mexico NY’s sunset

 

Went into a Mexican town near where I am staying to this restaurant that served the best shrimp ever.  We got the lat table and parking space as it was busy in this area with a New Years Day celebration going on al over and people were every where!

I got to watch the people having fun, playing, eating, celebrating – what joy!  Then I got to watch the sunset – and that is one of my most favourite things to do is watching the sun rise or set – such beauty and in the moment!!

New Years day in Mexico

 

Now that we know from Part one why New Years Resolutions suck – what can we do differently to make sure 2017 doesn’t turn out like 2016, 2015, 2014 and so on!

We all have things we want to improve on, work towards, change or let go of – go ahead and make that list of those things.

Now ask yourself why?  Why is it I want to have, be or do those things……..keep asking yourself why or even what will it mean?

When you’ve gone as far as you can now dig a little bit and ask how you will feel when you get there.

ex

I want to lose 5 lbs

Why?

Because my clothes won’t feel so tight

What does that mean to me?

I can wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

How does that feel when I think of myself being able to wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

I will feel more confident, more attractive, healthier……..

What you are truly going for is the feeling or essence of what you desire – if there is no emotion behind it, there is no energy and it will not happen.

ex

I want to lose 5 lbs

Why?

because, I do

Yes but why?

I don’t know, so I can fit in my clothes but it never happens, this probably won’t be any different this time (you may be thinking as well)

How will that make you feel?

I don’t know, better……

 

See the difference, better yet FEEL the difference.

Get some energy behind what you truly desire not just in New Year’s Resolutions but anything in life – E-motion is Energy in Motion – if there is truly just nothing there there will be nothing there.  Time to spend some time and get real and honest with yourself.  I you want to lose 5 lbs but have no interest in doing anything different and really don’t care if you first into more of your clothes or not – then just be honest with yourself so that later on you don’t have an excuse to mentally or verbally beat yourself up.

On you have the why, the emotion and the energy behind it – then you will more naturally move in directions that will help you on that path – all of a sudden some of your cravings may go down, or you just aren’t as interested in eating some of those foods, or tv well what a waste time lets go for a walk, get out in nature or do some stretching become a priority.

Pay attention though – you may get tested a few days in – go back read our why, the emotions and you may need to really bring those feelings to the forefront again as since we are human beings it can be easy to fall back into old patterns and programming – it takes minimum 21 days to change a habit / pattern as we are creating neuro-pathways.

I know you can do it though – you’ve got it in you.

Why settle for mediocrity where there is so much more out there!!

You deserve it!!

I’e got your back as I’ve been there before!!

Have an amazing day and get in touch with your why and feelings!!

Life will never be the same!

Just wanted to update you on where David and I are on their road trip!

Wow the last couple of weeks have been busy, have had some great things happening, met some amazing people, and am seeing how the weather is in Florida in the summer – lets say it’s hot and a storm almost every day due to such humidity so the lightening shows have been amazing!!

We have also had some personal things go on that have not been pleasant like getting news of a friend passing rather suddenly and a few other things that knock the wind out of you even though they are part of life – not the pleasant part.

Yoga on the Beach

 

We have been on a road trip for a month now, very little internet and no data on my phone – being Canadian down in the USA I just refuse to pay a big cell phone bill – so I can’t go on the internet as often and it’s made me realize how much I did go on the internet and Facebook and wasted time.  I’ve also found a phone that is coming out soon that I can’t wait to share – 5G, in 122 countries that has unlimited talk, text and roaming plus 52 gigs of data a month all for $49………..I love disruptors and being a forward thinker!!

Taking time daily to nurture self and diving into yoga deeper (wearing the Firma Wear I just started carrying and I love love this clothing line!!

We were also at the Purium convention in early August in Orlando.  To be honest I am not a big convention person personally – too many people and usually too much hype and bling type of shows which I’m just not into yet this was different.  I have always loved Purium and the products – live, organic and non-gmo greens and superfoods which are so needed today (I will go into more later on what sets these products a part because there is a huge difference).  Yet to hear that they are now switching (or will be as containers run out) to totally biodegradable packaging that is made from hemp, bamboo and tree resin as well as the little sample packs made my heart sing – a totally conscious company.  Not to mention that in April at David Sandoval’s oasis there will be an Unconventional open to the public that really is of this tribe and to vendors who want to do healing work, sell their goods (no competition with Purium of course) and join in the fun – now how cool is that??

We’ve been spending time either at David’s mom’s place or my dad’s winter place both without internet  – so the clubhouses have them, it’s not bad sitting by the pool side let me tell you!! Yet it’s just not as convenient – but if that is the only issue I am so fine with that!

We have caught sunrises at the beach, talked with a 97 year old man who’s reading books on how to live over 100 years – his secret – NO sugar or processed foods, daily sardines, plant based way of eating with meat once a month, 6 almonds, 1 cashew and 1 walnut daily plus he walks twice a day about 2 miles each time and has a wonderful attitude!!

www.jodiburke.com

Have sampled a few different beaches on the East Coast and the Gulf side of Florida – stopping by health food stores and having some great conversations with healthy like minded individuals.  Attended some talks, found an amazing conscious, organic and non-gmo restaurant that had delicious food and ambience – I share that as we seldom go out to eat – while travelling most places to stop for food or restaurants are just crap – it’s really not food and we’re so used to creating our own dishes even while travelling and doing picnics we are actually spoiled now.

There really is such a huge difference between eating and feeding the body that once you are doing it you can never go back!!

Also because of some of the curve balls that have been thrown at us lately – deepening our relationship, our communication and really supporting one another through a few difficult times has been an incredible journey as well.

This time with little internet has let me dive deeper into me, my dreams, my fears, my goals, etc and what has been holding me back from truly creatively expressing who I am.

Dove into a great book and have to share it, it’s title is ‘When Did You Die?’ and you can read a free chapter here at www.Templeahyes.com – the book was a gift for David but I truly believe it was for me and now can’t wait to meet Temple – what an incredible lady!!

The reality is for me I now realize is that life is short, life is precious and we are not meant to struggle – if you are not loving what you are doing you have choice choose something else and choose it fast why waste your time – trading each minute, hour and day living a lie, doing things you don’t like doing, being miserable, hating life or people or what you are doing and needing to numb yourself through food, alcohol, drugs or anything else.

Life is getting me high – between eating clean and pure, digging up the roots that took me down a path of self destruction through an eating disorder and with it partying in my earlier years I lost a big part of me and never felt good enough……..not any longer……for the first time in my life I am actually connecting with my heart and true source.

I look forward to sharing more.
