I feel a major shift coming. I mean major.
Happy New Year’s everyone!
(I can’t begin to tell you how much I identify with this picture at this time in my life.)
Hope you didn’t do anything I wouldn’t do! ;) So here we are the very first day of the new year. Typically, I don’t see a big deal in it. For me, I just to use every day as a new beginning, who wants to wait 234 days or 67 days for a new beginning to start. I wanna know that June 24th, if for some reason I’m having a shitty day, I can start over the next day. Why wait another 6 months for that?
So as you can probably tell I’m not big on resolutions because resolutions are really just intentions for the rest of your year. Every day I try to set an intention. The intention to remember “food is fuel” (thanks Kasey Arena!), the intention to help people without the expectation of getting something in return, or even just lowering my expectations. That sounds scary right? Lowering expectations? Quite frankly, when we have these cRAzY expectations for others is because of our own need for perfection. Remember, we’re already perfect.
Anyway, the point to this blog, is set intentions everyday. Maybe the beginning of your year can help you remember or figure out what you want your life to become in this new year. My grand intention is to dive deeper spiritually, which I do every year, and to volunteer more. I don’t need to get back. When I’m giving that’s what matters. Seeing smiles on people’s faces, hearing kind words. That is what really matters in my life.
Last year, was what I call a “coming to terms” year. I was able to pick apart a lot obstacles, relationships, and situations to better understand their need to be in my life, no matter how bad they seemed. I’d like to think every day I become more of what is wanted and needed in my life. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to understand that. If you have ever been on a similar path, you’ll know just what I’m talking about. Some people won’t understand or even care to understand why you feel the way you do. That’s ok though, that is their own path in life. Try to always remember that. It’s super hard to sometimes I know. Trust me, there have been times of wanting to scream at the top of my lungs at people to tell them they are selfish, ignorant, or plain mean. That will do me no good. It will also do you no good. Those people that do nothing but cause you heartache and distress, only deserve healthy boundaries.
…And that is where my new year starts…now that I can say I can identify situations and persons that no longer serve my greater good. My next step is to now create the life through thoughts that only greet me daily with positive interactions and love. Again, I’m ready to face adversity. Ready for the naysayers. Ready for the ones that will try to deter me with their negative words. This will not be an easy task but with dedication I CAN and WILL do it. This is where I feel my major shift coming in.
What are your intentions for the new year?
