My goal for 2014: Ease

Hi Sweet Friends,

In the spirit of unplugging and filling my well before welcoming 2014, I’m keeping today’s blog short and sweet. And I’m really excited about this coming year—not because of monstrous goals or momentous milestones, but because this year is all about ease.

For me, ease at work and at home equals joy, health, creativity and contentment.

Ease connects me to my internal life. The more ease I feel, the more grounded my decisions become. I welcome those things into my life in 2014 and I invite you to join me.

The opposite of ease leads me to unneeded suffering.

I find myself chasing shiny objects, losing sight of my true purpose and saying yes when I mean no. Those things I’m happy to leave behind in 2013 (and even if they crop up again—and they will—returning to my goal of ease will get me back on course).

In order to beckon more flow, we’re called to identify the areas of conflict in our lives. Who or what causes our briefs to bunch up? When we keep ease in mind, there’s no need for lofty resolutions. Aim and plan for ease. That’s enough. Move with ease, observe with ease, evaluate based on ease. Committing to this feeling will totally transform the people and situations you welcome into your life (or not).

I hope this simple seed will grow and blossom in the coming months. I cherish you and I’m so thankful that you’ve joined me on this journey, whether you watched Crazy Sexy Cancer on TLC when it all started, you gave me a hug and a kind word at a book signing, or you’re visiting my blog for the first time. Blessings to you sweet friend.

And now for a little token of my appreciation for you…

I am grateful

Affirmations are extremely powerful. I see that everyday when I post notes of encouragement on my Facebook page. Folks light up and come out of the woodwork! Reading your comments on these posts thrills me to no end. It’s amazing how a few sentences of inspiration can shift someone’s day, flip their perspective or just lift them out of a dark place. As we move into 2014, I want you to know that you have this power too.

2014 Affirmations

I write affirmations for myself first. Then I share them with the world with the hope that they’ll touch your lives in the way that they’ve changed mine. That’s why I created this fun, downloadable PDF with four of my recent Crazy Sexy affirmations. They’re my gift to you, print them, cut them out, use them as a bookmark or post them on your vision board—whatever works. And if you like them, let me know. I’ll keep creating them for ya!

Ok, back to finding more ways for you (and me!) to breathe in 2014 …

Now it’s your turn, how will you embrace more ease in the year ahead?

Peace & exhale,

Kris Carr
