I've never been so glad for a year to end and I've never had more resolve to START a new year on my terms. At the stroke of midnight, I'll give 2015 two middle fingers and then very quickly focus ALL of my energy on positive, high vibration living. I won't bore you with the details of why 2015 was a bag of suck but let's just say the bag was totally full. However, so many things have changed for me in the way that I think and the way that I want to live. I sometimes wonder if this is a product of age or if I am truly becoming enlightened, more comfortable in my skin, knowledgable of what I want and need, less tolerant of accepting anything less and most of all having determined that I am worthy of those things that I desire.
Somewhere along the way we tend to lose ourselves or suppress our desires to a point that slowly kills our souls. Maybe the events of the year or a consolidation of a lifetime have left me with the conclusion that life is too short to be unhappy or to live anything less than an exciting, stellar life.
I've always been a problem solver. So unhappiness or any discontent was like a riddle. Something to be figured out. I like finding answers so surely there was an answer to this, right?? While I do think there are answers, those lie within yourself. It takes a while for those to come out. Life experiences, life changes, etc all play a role in getting to where you need to be. So I'm not so sure that I would have been so enlightened in my 20s and 30s and I'm ok with that. We probably aren't supposed to be. But when we get the knowledge we need to be using it.
There are no typical New Year's Resolutions. Never really believed in those anyway. But there is resolve. To live who I am. To be great (not good) with who I am, to accept me more and more and not be ashamed of that. To thrive in whatever I do because I'm just doing it out of the joy in my heart. And if there isn't joy in my heart about it - then I won't be doing it (or at least not for long). This is the year of the bull (for me anyway) and it will start by me taking that bull by the horns. Because when we boil it down, that's the only way for you to truly live and be happy. You are the one that has to take the bull by the horns, no one else can do that for you. I won't be sitting around this year blaming others or circumstances when things aren't going my way because it falls to me. It falls to you. So take that bull by the horns and resolve for an incredible 2016!
