Leap and the Net Will Appear!
It’s the first day of a brand new year! A day filled with faith, hope and intention. There is something supremely special about New Year’s Day. Across the world these universal feelings are being experienced. It is as if we’ve been given another chance at Life, another chance to be a better version of who we were just yesterday. The collective energy in itself is amazing. I woke up this morning in one of the best moods I’ve seen in a long time, in a clear state of mind. All day I’ve been thinking, “leap and the net will appear.”
I have been bound by self-imposed fear. Why? There is no valid answer to this question, yet I know so many of us have asked ourselves at least once “Why am I afraid?” Followed by this question we create stories to validate the fear. My excuses have been vulnerability and possible rejection. But today, I welcome them both with open arms. With my permission, they can only bring growth. Plus, anything earned even with a tinge of struggle is always more satisfying than that which is easily attained.
So I allowed my mind to continue its process…
What if we treated everyday the way we treat New Years Day? What if everyday we continued to leap into ourselves? You can never fail when you are staying true to who you are.
Traditionally at the turn of the year, we make resolutions. We make a list or choose something we intend to resolve or perhaps do differently from the year past. Great Idea! The key in maintaining steadfast in your goals is to consistently affirm them to be true.
I’d like to share the process I have come up with for how I will accomplish my resolutions.
1.) Make a list of goals. Write them down. Make it something appealing to look at. Decorate them if you choose. Add pictures! Make a vision board!
2.) With each goal write a short description on why you would like to add or change these things in your life. Make sure to be honest with yourself. (I think that it is important to understand the intention behind the goal to ensure it’s pure and healthy in essence.)
3.) Place your resolutions/goals somewhere you will look each and everyday. (That saying goes “Out of Sight, out of mind.”) Keep them as a constant reminder.
4.) Do not let any outside entity or person (including yourself) be a deterrence in this journey.
