Don't Wait, The Time Is Now

I recently returned from a trip to Amsterdam & Copenhagen which was perfect timing to celebrate the release of Me Too: A Therapists Journey to Heal, Find Liberation & Joy.

Amsterdam in particular had been on my bucket list for a while starting with the first time I discovered the Anne Frank House, and then seeing the city in action in one of my all time favorite movies, The Fault in Their Stars (which is actually quoted in my book). But then when I saw a trip that included Copenhagen, I figured I'd knock two new countries off my list, and off I went. 

This trip couldn't have come at a better time, but more importantly it put me one step closer to fulfilling something I wanted for my life. 

Often times that not we are not saying yes to things that we could right now, which causes time to pass us by, and us to live much smaller than we were destined to. Research shows that when individuals are on their death bed they regret the experiences they didn't have, the people that they didn't invest in.

So as you immerse yourself in what I hope will be a joy-filled holiday season, spend some time reflecting on the things you want to do with your life, be that learn a new language, travel to that place, build better relationships, or write that book.

None of know when our last breath will be taken so let's make it a point to relish in life right now, say yes to living right now, take steps in the direction of our deepest desires, so when that time comes hopefully we will have no regrets. But most importantly you will be living life on your own terms to its fullest. 

With the Winter Solstice taking place until December 23, this is a perfect time to draw deep within and discover exactly what you want. Thanks to my friends on The Pattern app, and yours truly, here are some questions that you can consider this solstice to have you eager to capitalize on every moment.

What gifts and lessons did 23' bring?

What are you leaving behind in 23' and what are you taking into 24'?

What do you want 24' to bring you by this time next year?

What can you let go of what no longer adds to your growth?

How can you create more space for what you want?

And if you haven't already please pick up my new book Me Too: A Therapist's Journey to Heal, Find Liberation, & Joy for trauma survivors and their allies at Barnes & Nobles & Amazon which includes an entire chapter on creating an abundance mindset which will be wildly supportive in having an expansive 2024. Check out the video below to get a sense of what you can expect from the book.

Of course we already have some amazing things in store for 2024 with your expansion in mind, which you can be the first to know by subscribing here. And you can always schedule a free consultation here.

Cheers to right now,

Demarra West
