The beginning of a new year can always inspire the possibilities of new beginnings and fresh starts. And while I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, I’m not a huge fan of the fact that we’re conditioned to think that we need to wait for a new year to begin to be a new ‘us’.
By all means, it’s important that we take the opportunity to look back over the past year and give ourselves a heavy dose of gratitude for all the good that came our way. The good we brought into our lives by pursuing our goals, stretching our boundaries and growing through it all – those things add up to make us who we are.
There’s magic in taking the time to recognize the places in which we can continue to stretch and grow. But I don’t think we necessarily have to wait for the calendar to turn to decide to make a fresh start.
So rather than set resolutions (that I’ve proven to myself to break time and time again) I prefer to look back over the year and focus on how I want to feel in the upcoming days, or months – recognizing that this is something I do fairly regularly to keep myself in-check and knowing that I can tweak whenever I feel it’s necessary, regardless of the calendar day.
And so, I thought I would send some intentions and wishes your way to get you thinking about what you want to feel, experience and move through over the next little while, knowing that you have every right to redefine, rediscover and reposition yourself whenever, however, and as often as you like.
May you connect with the world around you, both that which you can see and touch, and the ethereal and intangible – whatever that may mean to you.
May you tap into that intuitive knowing that will guide your actions with authenticity, clarity, and in tandem with what will fill you up.
May you speak from a place of honesty, compassion and kindness – speaking your truth regardless of how it may be received on the other end.
May you move with love – love for self, others, and the world.
I wish you confidence, a strength of being that encourages you to be more and more of who you are in this world with every passing day.
I wish you creative endeavours and pursuits and the ability to dive deep into the things that will bring you pleasure and fulfill your desires.
May you know the light is present even in your darkest moments and may you find your feet solid on even the most shaky terrain.
I wish you love.
