The end of the old year into the new year... a time of looking back and looking forward at the same time. What we want to leave behind and what we want to create. Really a yin and yang kind of experience, isn't it? Many ways to look at this.
What didn't I get done? How did time go by so quickly? I thought I'd be farther along by now. I made so many "promises", I had so many plans, and I got so little done! How many times have I said I'd get something done and failed?! People must think I'm a flake or a liar or just plain not committed. Heavy sigh.....
I made progress. I took steps toward my goal. I opened myself, sometimes painfully. I tried new things. Sometimes they worked, sometimes they didn't. But I took a risk and opened my heart or my mind. I discovered that I had to learn a little more before some things could be done. So I did. I've learned new things. I've made course corrections, so I didn't get where or as far as I originally planned. But my course is truer now. Satisfied smile.
Oh, don't we admire those people who seem to be "on fire!" The people who seem to get there so fast with such confidence!! The ones who seem to live Life with three !!! after their names in CAPITAL LETTERS!!! Oh, if we could only live like they do!!!
But suppose, just suppose, we're meant to live Life as we do it. As you do it... as I do it. Suppose my pace is the right pace for me. What if you are doing it exactly right for you all along? What a concept! We're doing it right all along. With or without the !!!
As we enter this New Year, as the Winter Solstice arrives and the Light begins to expand again, let us each create this year's future anew in that Light. Chart your course for the year from the place and to the place that is right for you, knowing course corrections are likely to occur. Personally, I will be adding volunteer work with young women in my community; encouraging them to look back at their lives in order to explore and re-invent their futures in new ways. That's the stand I'm taking for them. Each of them will create her Life for the New Year in a way that is perfectly, brilliantly and Divinely suited to her.
That is my New Year's wish for each of you. I pray that this year you are able to let go of anything that is not your Heart's truest desire; and that you embrace into your Light everything that feeds your soul.
