So here we are at the end of 2020 and for many of us, we will forever see this year as a horrible year of devastation and loss. For others, this year will be seen as transformational and the beginning of their new path and journey! How will you see 2020? I know for me it has been a year that was such a mix of emotions. I walked into 2020 with loss as it was the year my Mother passed but also lead me to a journey within myself which opened my heart up once again as I spent time in Mexico and fell in love with the people, culture, and art of the region. Many other people have lost loved ones, had businesses fail, lost their job, savings, and much more. I have also seen and heard of wonderful things come out of this year though. Many of you were able to work from home which in turn, changed things within a company as jobs became more remote or virtual. People have had to be creative and come up with ideas on how to make money and sustain themselves financially apart from a job they may have held. Some people worked a lot harder than ever before to make some kind of changes in their environment, relationships and career, and even health.
I finished my 2nd book this month, I called it “The Un-Becoming – 50 things I’ve learned in 50 years.” It’s not a big book, it’s about 46 pages, but I had wanted to write it 3 years ago and I never did. So in 2020, that happened all within a week! I guess I should mention here if you would like to get a copy of my book you will find it at www.joannehughescoaching.com. It has not launched yet though, I am launching it on Jan. 4th! Exciting indeed! My point in mentioning this though was there was a point in there I wrote about healing ourselves and being able to do that. In it I mention a Doctor, his name is Dr. George Carey. In 1918 he wrote a book called “The Wonders of the Human Body.” It is an amazing and eye-opening book wherein he writes….and I quote. ” But, instead, you have found the Kingdom of the Real within the Temple that needs no outer Sun by day not Moon or Stars by night to lighten it “. “Man must realize, however, that he is the creator or builder of his own body, and that he is responsible for every moment of it’s building, and every hour of its care. ” I loved how Dr. Carey put this into words and expressed it, I also know this very well and I wanted to share one more quote from him first. “When he finds out what he really is, and how much he has always had to do in the making of himself what he is, he will be ready to grasp some idea of the wonderful possibilities of every human body, and will know how completely and entirely is every man his own savior.”
I felt it was very timely, the completion of my book, finding this Dr. George Carey’s book after a year of it hiding underneath other paper and boxes, and me finally pulling it out, and the beginning of 2021. So, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy that will be for all man. You are the creators and keepers of your body. You are also the builder of your life! So, as we go into 2021 let us have faith that we have the ability to look after our bodies, care and nurture them so that we can build up its strength, immunity and WE can be in control of our health and Wellness! Take a stand in your life and in your health! We can’t be in control of what our governments want to impose on us or the direction of how the world may go, BUT, we can take control of our health, our wellness, and our financial situations. That is amazing news, isn’t it? To all that may not know this, as sadly some will not.
There is a lot of opportunities out there for us all. As an entrepreneur, we know and understand this. It’s really 80 percent mindset that is what we all need in taking a step towards the life that we really want. We can begin to look at how we can create opportunity by looking at a few things. They are:
– Consider for a moment all the things that you are passionate about?
– What things are you really good at?
– Look at who your target market would be? Who are your clients?
– What is the solution that you can provide to them to their needs or problems that they have?
When you can figure out some of these questions you will be able to get a better picture of what it is that you can create. If you need to work through this more you can consider hiring a coach. Of course, I would be happy to work with you to help you create an amazing new year, new career etc. but I’m only suggesting finding a coach that you connect with. They help to guide you along a path to finding clarity and hold you accountable to keep moving forward. That is after all what all of us must do. Move forward!
As you stand at the door of a year ending and a new door opening remember that you are the creator and savior of your body and of your life! You are capable of doing magnificent things! Change your mindset to know that you are strong as is your immune system, practice good hygiene and common sense and then if you feel that you are in danger of losing a job etc, then just move forward and find a solution! You are on the door to a new year, new understandings, and for a lot of you, it’s an awakening. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your support this year, for being a loyal reader of my blogs, and for the ones that reach out to me and give me feedback or want to work with me. I value you and appreciate you. It is my honor to be able to help all of you in any way I can. I will go into 2021 with a lot of faith in humanity, faith in myself, and faith in you all that you will as well have a wonderful and amazing new year!
Merry Christmas to you all from my family to yours! I hope that despite the state of the world, you all find peace and joy in your circle and place, where ever you may be in this great magnificent world. Merry Christmas all, many blessings to you.
