When they talk about years of transition, I think 2018 was what they were talking about. To get you all up to date about what I am all about now, here's a quick list:
- I no longer work at Tiffany & Co! After 11 years of working with the great luxury jewellery company, it was time to say goodbye.
- I started focusing on my nutrition business! Yes, I am a CERTIFIED NUTRITIONAL PRACTITIONER, which means I'm a nutritionist people! But I don't just look at what you are eating, I look at the whole package and get to the root cause of your dis-ease!
Every beginning of the year everyone looks at what the year ahead shall bring, but I think it's quite nice to look at my horoscope in reverse to see all the things I've accomplished and to see how correct the universe was...is.
So here's how things worked out for me....
According to astrostyle.com, my 2018 predictions: "One of your biggest career years in over a decade, with a chance to establish yourself as a leader in your field. Plus, four eclipses that will change your personal goals and your closest relationships!"
No shit! It was my biggest career change ever! This one was key people! I'm sure you may have heard or told someone that staying in a career they hate is not worth it, and it's not. Sure, it's scary to leave your comfort zone of your current state of employment, but if you're not 100% happy, it's not worth it. If you aren't growing anymore, it's not worth it. If you have a hard time getting to work, it's not worth it! YOU HAVE OPTIONS, my friend! Even though it may not seem like it at the time, you do need to open up space for new opportunity to find its way in. When I quit and was out of work, it was truly amazing how much opportunity came my way! I had 2 jobs to 1, then to 4 then back to 1...now I have 2, plus taking care of your guys...so I guess that's still 3! But what I do doesn't seem like work...so...I guess they're right when they say, "find a job that you love so it doesn't seem like work..."
So my advice, if you are looking to change your career, save up a couple months worth of expenses, quit your job and look for a new one. Finding a new job is a full-time job. It will be scary, but well worth it in the end.
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS - "Balancing “me” and “we” is the greater goal of these eclipses—and always the holy grail for your independent but people-loving sign"
I've been in my relationship for a lifetime. It's been about...what I count...12 years. But it's true...for my fellow aquarians out there...we are independent creatures, so being in a relationship is a struggle sometimes for me. I don't like to be on key with someone, so I don't report in often. I don't text him countless times a day. So, balancing out the "me" and "we" can prove to be difficult. I feel like I've gotten a little better with my partner into being more open and sharing more...sounds weird right? I chalk it up to the way I was raised. I am the youngest of six, my closest sibling being five years older than I am. So, I was alone quite a bit growing up. I didn't always tell my mother where I was going, I didn't call home after dark, (I got into a lot of trouble for that), I wandered off in the mall when I was bored, which was often.
But I am the most supportive person you can find. I will ask questions. I will poke and prod. But I don't share a whole lot. And I always make decisions on my own, or don't really care...it's quite interesting, (this tends to be an area of contention as well)
I know a lot about balance in relationships. There has to be a "me" and "we" mentality to some extent, or you just may find yourself wanting out. But there is a fine balance between the two. I can help with that.
HEALTH & WELLNESS - "Prioritize self-care and create a simple, soul-sustaining routine by rising, going to bed and eating at the same general times each day."
Well, I've pretty much been saying this all year long, routine is my key...apparently Saturn is going to be in my wheel house for the next 3 years....so this routine will give me support and not lead to burn out. I like routine. It gives me structure and allows me to get things done. But this year, I've actually tried to change a few things about my routine to be more sporadic and a "fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl..." but I feel like this didn't work out too well for me. I felt like I was a crazy person and there was no order.
I've been burnt out. My adrenals gone to shit. Tired all the time. Digestion off. Feeling sad. It's a hole that can be dug deeper and deeper, day by day if not taken care of.
I have been there. I know how to get out. I'm here to support and guide you.
FAMILY & FRIENDS - "Home is where your stuff is…"
I've tried all year to minimize...that WAS on trend, am I right? My partner keeps telling me I have "too much stuff" while he has a capsule wardrobe and his "stuff"is all over the apartment, mine is compartmentalized and easy to find when I need it. I do have three jobs after all!!!! It's time to get down and really cut things back. Get rid of my pile of recycling papers, too much facial creams and supplements...need to do the things that I keep putting off and just do it! It's a work in progress....and "under construction".
Well, that's a wrap people! I think 2018 was definitely a transitional year for me. It was a year for me to become independent, to allow myself space and to be creative and figure my stuff out.
How do you think your year went? What plans do you have for 2019? The world is your oyster...
Eat well. Work Hard. Seize Wellness.
See you in a heartbeat.
