Inside of you is a unique purpose and Heart Value that helps this world stay bright. Please celebrate YOU, your gifts, your contributions and your evolution towards what your life’s purpose means to you. This episode talks about setting intentions to honor and celebrate YOU.

My birthday, August 31, is a time of great reflection for me. I spend time looking ahead and thinking about what intentions I’m going to set so that I can show up and be my best self. Not only for myself, but I want to show up for all the people that I choose to surround myself with, including Striders. 

I’m here to spend quality solo time with you for EP153’s Wise Walk as we discover our True Stride. I want to do this year’s reflections as a two-part episode so we can have this experience together. Last week, we focused on looking back at the previous year. Today, we’ll ask ourselves about the upcoming year and our intentions to show up as our best self.

On our Wise Walk, I talk about the celebration of YOU. We can decide how to move forward so we become more of who we are and who we’re meant to be. Come with me as we reflect on these Wise Walk questions:

    • Do you acknowledge that you are a miracle?
    • Do you take time to celebrate yourself?
    • Can you set a new intention for the upcoming 12 months?
    • How do you want to show up?
    • Who is it you want to be?
    • How can you stay grounded in your calling?
    • What examples can you find for yourself to stand in your power?

You deserve to be celebrated and honored. You were born for a reason and the universe is excited for what you have to offer.

Honor your existence for the miracle that it is. Step into inspired action with these Wise Walk questions:

    • What questions can you ask yourself to stay grounded?
    • As you feel your way through the questions, what inspired actions will you take to be aligned with your intentions?
    • Are you willing to acknowledge that there is only one you?
    • Will you share your celebration and intentions with others?
