Where are your footprints? Are they missing? Life has many paths. In this beautiful picture, you can see a path. Is this your path with your footprints saying, “It’s me?” When you choose the right path, it works best for you. If your footprints are on this desired path, you are living your best life. That is the point where you are enjoying you. You are pleased with your job, your hobby, your partner, etc.
This is called the “purpose path” because you are living in and on purpose here. You are the best version of you doing what you were meant to do, and you love it.
But how do you get on this path? It takes a hefty investment in yourself. You may have to invest all your savings into yourself. But that is OK. You must invest in your mind, body, and spirit. Think of the things that you enjoy or love about you and keep them. Think of the things about you that you would like to modify or change and do that. You are a work in progress. Keep on investing in you, and you will come to this place of ‘living in your purpose.”
Take time to pamper yourself. Rest and relaxation are two of the things that must happen for you to get to this location—Purpose. Let your footprints tell your story.

You are a caterpillar going through a metamorphosis, so that you can become a beautiful butterfly. No matter how good you think your life is now, when your transformation is complete, your life will be better because your growth will be infinite. Being a caterpillar is a beautiful thing as it means you are in transformation. New and beautiful things are about to happen in your life. The dreams you have been dreaming are about to manifest.
You must do some things so that this transformation can take place. Yes, like everything in life, you must have an input, which is necessary to get your results. The Creator of Life says, Do this and I will do that, because this is the way life works. So, yes you must act to accomplish this change. And don’t forget, this is your dream.
You have to keep eating the green leaf so that you can grow. You will not have your metamorphosis without eating the green leaf. Your green leaf leads to your butterfly.
You have eaten and now it’s time to change to the butterfly. This change is at your own pace, and you call the shots here. Don’t rush as you will get there in the right time.
As a beautiful butterfly, you will flap your wings and fly freely. Experiencing the freedom you have always wanted. No limits, no boundaries.
Leave me a comment and tell me about your transformation.
Reflection takes place at all times, but particularly at the start of every new year and it’s a very good thing to do. It brings a lot of things in perspective for you. But reflection without a plan is fruitless, so let’s go on this journey together. Let’s perform our Reflection Engagement task, so our 2018 can be our best year yet.
Find yourself in a quiet place and take several deep breaths until you feel a calm inside of you. Take as much time as you need for each reflection item. There is no rush. This is all about you. First, lets reflect on the things that we are happy with. Next, let’s reflect on the things in our lives that we are not happy with. Then let’s focus on the things we want to change. Now, focus on the things in our lives we can accept with no change at this time.
What do we do with all this is your next thought? And it makes sense. Write down all your thoughts and be honest with yourself. There is no punishment or shame in the answers you have come up with, so just write them all down. Below I have provided you with a table in which to work. Click on the Reflection Engagement Form Link below.
Start with the first column labelled “my thoughts” and look within and spend some time thinking about it. Close your eyes and take deep breaths. When your thoughts are clear, start writing them down. List the things you are happy with in your life and next the things that you are not happy with. Then list the things you want to change about your life and then the things you can accept in your life as is today. Now, its time to work on the “what am I going to do about it ” column. For the things you are not happy with list what you are going to do about those things and exactly how you will go about it. For this task things can also be situations.
I encourage you to write down every thought that comes to you. It may not make sense initially, but it will later when it all comes together.

Leave me a message and let me know about some of your Reflections.
Are you gift wrapped and stored? Do you know for some people you are so special to them that they allow you no room for growth? Yes, for some people, they carefully wrap and place you in a box like a gift except, this gift is stored, not given to anyone. They believe that they are taking good care of you by wrapping and placing you in a very nice box.
This box is then placed on a shelf or tucked away in a cupboard. This box is now stored and so are you. But how does this affect you? In this box there is no room for growth, no room for imagination, or any kind of action. In other words, the light is not shining on you.
Examine your situation in real life. Are there people who care about you so much that they want to protect you by gift wrapping, and placing you in a nice box, or have they already wrapped and placed you in this box? These people could be friends, family members or supervisors at work. I will tell you that they mean you no harm. Their actions are not malicious. From their vantage point, they believe they’re helping you. And yes, they are, but this kind of help is not the right kind, as it will eventually destroys you. You will never blossom into who you are supposed to be, or even solve the problems you came into this work to resolve because you are stuck.
In such a box, as you life is going nowhere you cannot understand why. But your physical world looks great as the beautiful wrapper represents it so well.
If you find yourself in this kind of box, please unwrap yourself, stand up and step out of it. Place your feet firmly on the ground and keep walking. Walk away from a dependent situation to a one of self reliance.
Leave me a comment to let me know if you’ve been gift wrapped.
