MaxPower2U would like to wish each and every one of you a 2019 filled with Gratitude, Love, Prosperity, and Peace! As I reflect on 2018 from the beautiful El Camino Cemetery in San Diego California, I am reminded that I have a ton to be thankful for. I start with my ability to breathe and know that I am alive to witness the beauty, the challenges, the grief, the love, the resiliency, the tenacity, the promises, and all else that comes from being human on this physical journey. I am grateful to be in America and to have the perspective of how awesome it is to live in a country that can lift you up as you create your dreams and pursue your goals. A country in where many believe in the content of each other’s character and a willingness to allow for expression.
Yes, the cemetery is a place that puts life into perspective especially if you walk around and look at row after row of tombstones. You will be quickly reminded that some of those people departed this earth with things left undone, not experienced, maybe they didn’t forgive and let go, and maybe they never started that business they talked about starting for so long. There are many unfulfilled dreams and or realized ideas that left this earth without true expression. But if we believe in destiny, free will, then we probably can’t even question fate. But what we do have control over, is our own ability to create the type of life we want to experience. This is God given or Universal truth stated by many scholars, scientists, and philosophers. Will life always be perfect even though you try and create it to be in the image of perfection? No, not at all because without challenges, we wouldn’t grow. It is when life challenges us that we tend to express our true character.
In 2018, do you feel that you were challenged enough or do you feel that you stayed within your comfort zone? What challenges did you take on in order to grow as a person. They could’ve been subtle or they could’ve been huge! I challenged my comfort zone and went on a journey of self expression and discovery through reconnecting with my family in Mexico after a 20 year separation. Although, I did not know what to expect, I approached it with love, kindness and authenticity. I was not out to impress, but to be present with them and to get to know them in their environments. I would have to say that I feel very fulfilled in the many awesome experiences that I had with them and I am ready to create even more. The time and energy spent with my family is the most sacred to me. I have discovered that being authentic and being completely accepted by family is infinite treasure and a big reason to be grateful each and every day.
Although It is simply amazing to be accepted by your blood line, it is most beautiful when you accept yourself. Yes, when you fully accept and appreciate yourself, you will have much more of an open heart, mind and soul when you decide to reconnect with family, friends, and or colleagues. They will definitely sense your authenticity and will want to be around you even more. They will know that you offer love and kindness. You will be easily embraced and you will understand the power of love for the many days that you are gifted with on this beautiful planet. And this is applicable to everyone- but you do have to have a deeper understanding of many many different types of personalities on this Earth born from their own experiences. You see, it is awesome to have another year to continue to explore the Magic that this life has to offer! I Promise that if you approach it with a heart filled with Gratitude, you will have multiple great experiences and challenges. The challenges will be there to remind you that you are still alive and that you can utilize the many resources available on this planet to overcome anything!
In 2019, let us encounter it, experience it, challenge it, and welcome it with open hearts, minds, and souls!
With Love and Happy New Year,
