162. 15 ways to let go of the sh*t that is dragging you down
Happy 2023 Ya’ll!
I don’t know about you but I’m feeling really good about the upcoming year. Don’t get me wrong, my sarcastic side still wants to jump in and say that to make such a statement is naively optimistic especially given the last three years, but sarcasm aside I truly am excited and its not just wishful optimism.
First, I'm hosting two free events in January:
To register for the Get Sh*t Done Workshop on Jan 13th and to get on the list for the coworking day on January 27th head on over to
Ok so, 2022 was kinda rough for me. Some of the things that happened were:
- I closed my group therapy practice which had been my primary income generator since 2011.
- I took on debt
- I ended relationships
The last 4 months especially were filled with some of my highest highs and lowest lows I had experienced in a long time. I was grieving things, processing things and questioning almost everything. And I know that I wasn’t alone in that. I also knew I wasn’t going to bring that energy into 2023.
Maybe you too are feeling some of the struggles I talked about. I’m hearing from friends and clients about the impact of health challenges, relationship struggles, financial uncertainty and more that are taking center stage in their lives.
Many didn’t have the energy to grow their businesses and were just in survival mode. Some people pulled back in their business and sought outside work to create more stability and safety nets and some people closed their businesses entirely. My hope is that if any of this is your story that you have given yourself so much love and support and realize none of those things are failure or bad or your fault. Being flexible and adjusting accordingly is actually a healthy thing to do.
I wanted to share some things that helped me in my own process of shifting my energy and letting go, that may be helpful for you if your are in need of a shift too. I identified 15 things, not all happened at once they built on each other.
Take a listen and let me know what you think. Will you try one of these? What do you do to shift your mood, mindset and energy? I would love to hear from you. Send me a DM or email email@example.com.
