Fulfilment vs Achievement + Detoxing Green Goddess Dressing February 19 2018 by Simone Denny
Hello lovely human,
A belated Happy New Year from me!
I feel like I am hatching into 2018 very slowly this year (gosh, it's already mid February!). Most New Years I crack into the new year with resolutions, vision boards or big words to live by for the year - my inner life coach can't help it.
This year I'm allowing things to flow a little more slowly. I'm more concerned with how fulfilled I will feel than by what I want to achieve. We become so attached to the outcome in life that we forget to enjoy the process - life is the process. Learning the art of fulfilment has been a big teaching for me in recent years and has completely changed my priories and direction in life.... for the better.
Being someone who loves goals, achievement and recognition and being someone who has thrived on results, the idea of trusting there is another way has gone against everything in my being. By allowing things to flow a little more and not holding the reins of my life so tightly, unexpected opportunities present themselves to me in ways I never expected.
The question becomes do I have the courage to surrender from my own grand plan; my life map or my checklist of things to do and just trust that with inspired action and intention, I will be shown the way that 'feels' right for me?
I am not saying don't have goals, visions or dreams because we need these to keep the momentum of our lives and to stretch ourselves out of our comfort zone. What I am saying is to stay connected to why you want that goal or dream - how will it make you feel and does the journey to it fulfil you? Be gentle with yourself; give yourself time for things to evolve and allow the river of life to take a different path if that is what your soul desires.
Speaking of fulfilment and enjoying the journey, I wanted to share a delicious recipe with you. The name really does say it all: the Green Goddess Dressing. I created this recipe a couple of years ago and was reminded to share it with you when a friend asked how to make it recently.
