I’m not someone that does year end resolutions.
As a matter of fact I haven’t met a resolution I didn’t obliterate. If they lasted past January (which they didn’t), but if they did, they would be sure to crash and burn before making into the first week of February.
You know who you are expensive gym membership, French lessons, books taunting me on the nightstand.
I’m just not that girl.
Kinda like giving things up for Lent. I sucked at that too.
What I do like to do, and believe in doing; is to set an intention for the New Year. That I can do.
I meditate the day before and again on the morning of the first – with purpose.
You can just sit quietly in your favorite chair in your jammies and cosy socks, with your eyes closed, that’ll do just fine.
Then pick a feeling you want to feel. Can’t think of one?
Imagine an obstacle or problem – solved.
How would that feel? Like relief? Freedom? Joy?
Imagine that stubborn project completed. Pride? Relaxed? Accomplished? Feel that?
Imagine your knee or shoulder or back, free of pain. How do you feel? Strong? Healthy? Vital?
Pick an emotion and marinate in it while you sit and breath. Pull it with you into 2015. Call it forward. Be deliberate. Do it on purpose.
If your mind strays (and it will) dive back in and marinate some more.
As you marinate it will tenderize you, I promise.
If you can stay in it for five minutes, congratulations! If you can do more, you’re a super star!
Be intentional for 2015.
If you believe that we create our reality (like I do), you don’t have to imagine the specifics of the events of the year – just hold the feeling.
I’m going for satisfaction. It is my Holy Grail. I can admit that I am almost never, truly and deeply satisfied. I could do/be better. There is always more that could be written/said/done.
That will be my intention this year, to feel satisfied.
How do you want to feel in 2015? Would you want to share?
Loving you into the New Year,
