In this episode, Melissa Kathryn welcomes the new decade, 2020, and the opportunity to create who we want to be. She opens by sharing one of her dad’s thoughts about how to have power when you speak followed by a trend she’s noticing to run from 2019. She shares a personal story of hardship in 2019 and underscores that we must take 2019’s lessons with us into the new year including tips on how to make 2020 an epic year.
First, Melissa encourages listeners to give themselves the grace, compassion, love and honor of all you went through in 2019. She highlights that you must break out of your old mold which includes embracing every aspect of yourself and involves “shadow work.” Be excited that you did the best you could with 2019, and if not, be honest with yourself about where you could have done more.
Melissa then asks listeners to examine what kind of growth they would like in 2020 and to narrow it down to two words. She gives an example of her own words, “generosity” and “expression.” By generosity, she means generous in time, spirit, listening and more. She wants to make an impact with that generous spirit, pass it on and for you to pass it on. By expression, she means to look inside herself and not see the impact she wants to make as an obligation but rather an absolute gift and honor.
Next, Melissa challenges listeners to think of where they want to be a year from now and break it down into every area of their life – spiritually, relationships, career, creativity, body/health/fitness, home, financial, etc. What are the biggest pieces and what do you want for yourself? Stretch yourself and take realism out of the equation. Write down your goals and then stretch your goals. Then, take the action steps to get you to the stretch goal. Begin by writing an “I am, I have” story and then, record it on the voice memo on your phone. Listen to it in the morning and at night in order to re-pattern your mind and plant the seeds.
In conclusion, Melissa recaps the invitation for stepping into wholeness in 2020 and what that means. She’d love to hear your personal theme words and will personally respond. In addition, she’d be grateful if you’d share the podcast and would also love a five star review. Happy 2020!
