Welcome to 2010
It's THAT time of year when we think about the New Year and all the changes we want to see in our lives before the beginning of yet another New Year. Yep, that's right; I'm talking about resolutions. Some people make them, and others don't, but regardless, we all see the New Year as the beginning of a new page in our lives.
Usually I'm one of those people that don't make resolutions. Mainly because my experience is that I make a resolution and about a week later I kick myself because I broke it. I'm sure many of you are familiar with that scenario.
Last year, however Mark and I both wrote one word on a piece of paper that we wanted to accomplish during the year. My word was 'unconditional love' (okay, two words). Throughout the year, many scenarios cropped up to help me see that to love unconditionally is my choice. I can choose to remain in the small minded and weak belief system I was raised in this lifetime to accept as 'normal' or move into the gentle flow of unconditional love and allow those belief systems to change. All year long, I made choices and now, even though I know it is an on going process, I can see how much freer and lighter I feel having walked that gauntlet of choices. I am very grateful!
This year I have a phrase I will be working on. 'Lighten up; have fun; laugh a lot.' I'm very excited to see how I can change some of the heaviness in my life to light and laughter. It's going to be a fantastic year!
What is your word or phrase for the year?
