I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. They feel too bossy.
I do set intentions and I do this through words, thoughts, and feelings. Do I believe that the intentions I set will come true? Yes. I do. Is that silly? Not for me.
I feel like at the turning of the calendar a large majority of the world sits in the same hope that this new year may be better than the last. That’s collective consciousness my friends and that is a pretty special thing. We all agree more or less on the hope of the coming months. That energy does carry forward and creates a bigness in this positive feeling. Personally, I appreciate the energetic assistance.
Last year was…
….a year of stretching metaphorical muscles, reminding myself what life was pre-pandemic. It was a year of patience with myself and others. 2022 was a year of gentle ease where I didn’t push myself too hard, too intensely but just enough to re-prepare.
Prepare for what…
…prepare for 2023. This year, now that I have sat in stable comfort and am aware that I command my experience I’m going to dream bigger, take bigger steps, hope, and believe—because it is, after all, my life and I get to design it. I also get to have the things I dreamed of because there’s no reason I shouldn’t.
When did I realize this?
Years ago I kept imagining myself in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia. Then, one day, I was in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia. As I floated over the geological formations of this otherworldly place I realized that I could have anything I wanted. I gulped my ugly cry quietly behind my sunglasses. There was no need to cry—only to be grateful. It’s that gratitude that keeps things rolling in.
That was the moment of realization. It’s been a slow dial turning that feeling up but I finally get it. I am grateful. I am happy. I am deserving.
Words for 2023
In no particular order: Hope. Belief. Success. Love. Gratitude.
May you have a year exactly as you dream it right down to the details. May your imagination not limit you and your heart be courageous enough to say yes to offerings. May you pat yourself on the back for making it through another year on this planet with all the experiences we humans are supposed to go through—big and small. And, may you enter with optimism.
All the best in 2023!
And, as always, thank you for reading lovelies.
I appreciate each of you so much!!
