I always love new years, new beginnings. Clean slate. Another chance to "get it right."
I know I'm not the only one who is more than ready to let this year go.
There have been hard changes and challenges for many of us. We have endured the losses of friends, family, much-loved pets, good health and jobs.
Here are a few of my wishes for myself this year.
I hope you grab them for yourself as well if they resonate with you.
I'll give myself permission to pull in when I feel the need to hibernate.
If this is what it will take to restore my broken parts then I will fill that need.
I let myself down so much this past year by wasting lots and lots of time and losing myself in the process. This new year I will allow more balance in my life and more quality "me time." I think there will be a noticeable difference inside and out.
I'll continue to find beauty everywhere. I will walk with my eyes and heart wide open.
I'll accept the storms when they come, and they will come. But I hope to sail through them with grace. And I hope to always understand the lessons they bring.
I'll continue to find inspiration in my daily blessings.
I'll continue to believe that possibilities are endless.
I'll continue to seek wisdom.
I'll continue to honor my true spirit.
And finally, the hardest one for me is I will try very hard to work on self-acceptance.
I practice loving kindness to others but I always leave myself out.
How can I ever achieve my dreams and goals if I feel undeserving?
From now on I'll matter to me. I think I can do it.
So, starting right now I'm going to show up for myself!
I'll be right here when I need me. And day by day as it gets easier to be kind to myself.
I will be able to finally believe with all my heart what you have been telling me all along.
I am enough.
Thank you all for being with me for another year. I treasure what this blogging family has come to mean to me. And I deeply mourn the ones we've lost too soon.
May each and every one of you reach for the stars this year, and may all of your wishes and prayers be answered.
Happy New Year!!
