For last year’s words belong to last year’s language, and next year’s words await another voice.
what could have
needed to do
yet didn’t get done?
for many of us, the new year represents a time for judgment.
“geez i really screwed up last year– thank goodness that’s over. i can’t wait to get my clean slate. as for these last two weeks? eh. screw it. they’re almost over. no use trying.”
can you relate?
if so, congratulations on your humanness.
let’s discuss options:
i want to invite you to deliberately schedule the time to look back on this past year. move through the past 12 months slowly. assess. NOT judge (yes there is a difference).
assess your last year.
what happened that you loved?
what happened that you maybe didn’t love so much?
were there choices or behaviors that you’d repeat?
habits you want to intentionally create?
what about any areas where you would choose differently?
what wins/celebrations did this year bring for you?
what lessons can you pull from the year?
again, this is NOT an opportunity to punish. this is a chance to assess what “worked” or “did not work” in terms of the outcome received.
since most of us cannot accurately predict the future, there’s no way for us to know what’s going to happen as we’re making our choice in the moment. and yet we willingly line ourselves up to receive the beating we deem necessary for the “bad” and “poor” choices we’ve made.
it is possible to reflect, assess, and make new, intentional choices WITHOUT the punishment and self abuse.
what is your intention for this new year?
how do you want to feel?
what do you want to create in 2019?
what’s the energy theme that’s going to drive your new year?
most of us spend our moments, our hours, our weeks, our months, and our years in reaction-mode. we’re ricocheting like a pinball from one trigger to the next with very little control because we have given barely- if ANY thought to our intentions.
it’s as if we are waiting for external things to happen TO us to tell us how we’re supposed to feel.
my friend, if we want to be the deliberate creator of our new year, we need to first decide what it is that we want to create.
once you’ve reflected and decided on your intention, now you’ve got to make some moves.
are there activities, people, circumstances, and/or projects you need to say “yes” or say “no” to?
are there people you need to add INTO your circle to support your goals and dreams AND are there things you’re doing or people you’re hanging out with who are no longer in alignment?
i’m not saying kick everyone to the curb, but if you’re serious about your dreams for this new year then you have to be willing to do what’s necessary to achieve them. there is only so much space and energy in any given day and i invite you to be extremely selective with what you’re allowing in.
and lastly? don’t wait. don’t wait until january 01. do it now. create the space in your calendar and make this important. YOU are important. if you do not make what is unconscious conscious, it will continue running your life and you? well, you’ll call it fate.
i want more for you
you deserve more
you are worthy of a life
so why wait- even one more day to begin experiencing the life you dream of?
begin your process now. clear your calendar now. create space now.
over and over and over and over and over and over again…
this is how we create powerful moments, progress driven days, incredible months, and transformational years.
