Grab a cup of something hot and let's chat...
So how's the New Year going for you so far?
It's gotten off to a fairly slow and peaceful start for me. By slow I mean not a whole lot of action taking place. I am usually all about new beginnings but for some reason this year feels pretty much like a continuation of last year. It's like when you were a kid and couldn't wait to turn eight because that surely was better than being seven and then your birthday roles around and you feeling exactly the same as you did the day before.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, it's just that when the ball drops at midnight on the first of every year I am usually ready to take on the world.
I think subconsciously I have given my permission to just be...
To be content with who I am, with what I have and with where I'm headed.
I hope I haven't become jaded about fresh starts. Hopefully I've just grown wiser in realizing the timing of change isn't always within my power and that sometimes there are lessons to be learned right where I am before moving on to the next phase.
Not that I don't have plenty of dreams for the coming year but I don't have to start them all today.
I'm actually pretty happy about it. I never realized the pressure I put on myself to reinvent the wheel. Some things are okay just as they are, just as they are intended to be.
How are you at just being?
