I don’t set new year resolutions. I sent intentions, mantras, and words to live by.
Included in this post is a recap of 2013 (including the most popular and influential posts), my mantra for 2014, and how you can make your own mantra in two easy steps.
2013 blew my mind.
I set my intention for 2013 one year ago: “Health & Happiness”
As I look back on 2013, I lived my year through that mantra. I completed a half marathon, I gained a new yoga and Pilates certification, I skied, I conquered major fears in my business, I fell madly in love, I traveled more than I have in years, and I focused on myself. The 2013 I lived is eerily accurate to the one I envisioned.
Now it’s time for 2014.
My 2014 mantra: Act with love.
Love is a powerful word, filled with meaning. I intend my life in 2014 to be filled with love. Business love. Romantic love. Family and friendships love. And, most importantly, love for myself.
I will live by this mantra. I will find love in every single thing that I do.
Why? Because finding love, giving love, receiving love, and living in love is so much better than living in fear, sadness, and anger.
Will every day be perfect? No.
Will I have fear, sadness, and anger? Of course.
But if I can channel the love in my life to overcome these emotions, then I can live happier and more fulfilled.
2014 is a big year (as I look down at the ring on my finger) in more ways than one. And I’m excited to go on this journey.
Cheers to a beautiful, heart-filled 2014.
I have astonished myself with my accomplishments: Kindle book launch, Running a half marathon, Skiing in Mount Tremblant, Gore, and Mount Snow, Launching my workout videos, Stand-up paddle boarding, Fitness Magazine event, Speaking at Hoboken Women’s Network, PRINT BOOK LAUNCH + PARTY, Traveling to France twice (plus Barcelona, Netherlands, Belgium), Watching my great friends get married/engaged/have babies, Jersey Shore beach weekends, and Getting ENGAGED to an absolutely wonderful man who is perfect for me.
