RECLAIMING MY HTM in 2017!
To reclaim is to make functional or useful again this is usually after something has been abused or wasted away. Think of reclaiming land for farming after it has been eroded by gullies stones and floods. You would seriously go to work and dedicate resources to the process to make it work.
H stands for Health, T stands for Time and M stands for Money
Reclaiming my Health: After years of reckless living on unhealthy diets with lots of fat, sugar, starches and all the other poisonous staff, I looked myself in the mirror and did not like the picture. I could look brighter, livelier only if I could start eating right. Eating right starts from the frame of my mind. I need to be relaxed about food and take time to analyse what I’m taking in. For instance, eating the same old meat and vegetables with sadza may seem very cultural but may also be the lazy woman’s escape from having to whip up a recipe. Whipping up a healthy recipe does not translate to more money either. So really there is no excuse to keep pushing junk down my throat because life is tough and the cost of living is high. Let me begin my research into the field of simple healthy eating. So I was talking to my American sister of colour on skype and she happened to share how she was on a gut cleanse routine…What? It sounds complicated but she tried to simplify for me and one thing I understood is that she has completely gone off sugar, but my daughter had previously warned me about this. So first resolution is to cut out sugar from my diet and I mean the processed type that we add on, not the natural one that comes with the plant, so watch this space.
Reclaiming my Time: Oh this is a big one. In the past year I have been torn into many pieces trying to do all that was in my plate and I think it’s now time to slow down and breathe. I need to strategise, streamline, prioritise, cut down, cutoff and create more time for meaningful staff. Anything not supporting the vision that I am now operating in or not aligned with my purpose will be relegated to the periphery to be done when everything else has been said and done. So this means unsubscribing from unnecessary emails. Anything that I have received but not read in a week has to go. I need time to attend to the personal, professional and global aspects of my purpose. My personal purpose means connecting more with the real authentic me and my needs. Projecting the real me into the world and developing myself. So this process incorporates time for reading widely about my focus dream, taking time on my doctorate studies and allowing time to rest, exercise , do my spiritual thing and remain grounded. My time will not be spread too thin on unnecessary tasks again. This is my second resolution going into 2017. As for my profession, I need to work at creating prosperity which will in turn allow me time to work more on expanding the vision. My global calling is in healing and as a healer, I need to devote time to my healing gifts using them and applying them to the service of others. I also need to feed my spiritual practice by connecting more with source and using tools that open me up to be more.
Reclaiming my Money: Yes I mean literally taking back my money – a good financial practice means being disciplined enough to spend on the right things, I have been guilty of trying out new things at my expense but not following through, so where I have been supporting causes unnecessarily, I withdraw and that includes tithing to the right place where I am being nourished. I withdraw and close out subscriptions that I have maintained for years but with no show of return. I want only to pay for something that will advance the vision. So before I click pay, it has to pass the test. My monetary units will now go where my intentional units are producing a profitable result. So the purging process has just begun and this will leave no stone unturned. Resolutions of 2017 is financial discipline.
Let’s connect again in the new year and review progress. I really want to be accountable.Contact me with Comments and views.
