24 Lessons in 24 Days in 2024

Happy New Year! Yes, it's 25 days into the start of the year, but I've been busy.... collecting lessons. Not making resolutions, or trying to keep resolutions that will inevitably be broken, but being still, recharging and listening to spirit. It's not even one full month into the new calendar year, and I already have a bunch of lessons that I've learned, relearned or reaffirmed. And, what better way to wish you a prosperous New Year than to share my insights with you. Here is to 24 things that I've learned in 2024 in just 24 Days. And yes, today is day 25, but I started conceiving this yesterday, plus 24 lessons in 24 days in 2024 is pretty catchy right? So, here goes my 24 lessons, or reminders, in no particular order!

Lesson 1. It's okay to try things and have to pivot, and to start something and choose to stop. Believe it or not, we are allowed to change our minds and our course.

Lesson 2. It's okay to live and not just work. More "be-ing" has helped me to obsess less over things that don't truly matter, and less "do-ing" has contributed to less anxiousness or anxiety.

Lesson 3. It's okay to not know what's next, and to be open to (almost) anything. Surrendering to the unknown has really been freeing for me.

It's okay, to start every lesson with "it's okay". Lol, just kidding. Let's continue.

Lesson 4. I don't have to have all of the answers, or really any of the answers, right now. There are times in life when you have a lot figured out, and seasons when you're the wisest by knowing that you don't have to have it ALL figured out, and won't anyway.

Lesson 5. Scaling down could be the greatest level up. There's something about going to zero (metaphorically or otherwise) that allows you space to get to 100 with less distractions and less attachment to things that don't really matter to you or don't align with your desires.

Lesson 6. I'm an introvert. Well, I already knew this, but this year has really confirmed the pleasure that I yield from my introverted ways, and in just being authentically me.

Lesson 7. Taking time away from social media is necessary! And, it wasn't intentional or planned. It just happened, and when I noticed that I took a step back, I leaned into it for self-care, and it has felt amazing!

Lesson 8. Moving on doesn't always require closure.

Lesson 9. Taking breaks doesn't require announcing it.

Lesson 10. It's okay to tell the truth about your experience, and about what you do or don't want or feel like doing.

Lesson 11. Honoring oneself doesn't require explanation.

I'm seeing a theme emerging here, are you?

Lesson 12. Sometimes not having a plan is the best plan you can have. They say if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail, but also if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans. See the irony. The point is, there is freedom in surrender, while remaining open to what "plans" reveal themselves along the way.

Lesson 13. Routines are good, but are meant to be broken. Having a set morning routine or work schedule can provide a sense of stability, but deviating from the routine can be refreshing, energizing and spark creativity.

Lesson 14. I've gotten really good at letting go of "things", and decluttering that which I do not/ will not use, or that which does not bring me joy, and it's really an amazing feeling. After all, you have to get rid of some things to make space for new things.

Lesson 15. I'm starting to really understand what it feels like to be "unburdened" and "unbothered". There's an inner peace that prevails even amidst real or perceived external challenges.

Lesson 16. I don't have to be everywhere all of the time, or constantly "show up" in order to remain relevant or successful in any regard.

Lesson 17. Grace is a simple act that frees you up from holding yourself or others hostage to "expectations".

Lesson 18. It's okay to be where you are, as opposed to where you expected you'd be, or where you're expected to be (read that again). Less resistance to what is, creates more joy in the present and more openness to what will become.

Lesson 19. It's possible to activate without outward, willful action. And in fact, most of our actions are compulsive, coming from a place of fear or lack, as opposed to spontaneous and rooted in faith and abundance.

Lesson 20. Blessing others and using my gifts to bless others is a blessing all in itself.

Lesson 21. Wealth comes in many forms. What some people have in external riches they lack in internal peace and love. And, although the two can co-exist, internal abundance is not determined by external factors.

Lesson 22. We are NOT in control of EVERYTHING, and there is freedom in stepping from behind the steering wheel.

Lesson 23. Growth may often come from hard places, but change doesn't have to be hard. Resist not, for the only constant is change.

Lesson 24. Expect "unexpected" blessings. Anticipation without attachment to details (e.g. what, when, where, why, how) welcomes blessings to flow freely in abundance.

That's it! I hope you glean insight or inspiration from my 24 lessons, and that you welcome your own personal "time out" or "time in", whatever is needed, in order to be more receptive to the lessons and blessings that life has in store for you this year and beyond! And, we'd love to hear which of our 24 lessons most resonate with you!

Wishing you love, peace and a new found freedom in 2024!!!
