2017: into the light baby


The eve of the new year is upon us and presently, besides typing these words, I’m reflecting on 2016—beginnings blending into middles, flowing into endings—as well as setting my intentions for 2017.

Setting intentions is a kinder, more spiritual, practice than listing resolutions. Resolutions that, for me, are typically broken by the second week of January. I’ve spent some time this morning envisioning what I would like 2017 to look like (always a fun practice). I then listed goals and intentions to get clear on what it is I desire. Most of my intentions come down to my desire to be bold and self-motivated and confident.  Thinking about the future and what holds me back has brought this quote to mind:

It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.

With these wise words in mind, I tell myself as I tell you: go forth into the new year and continue on your journey, as only you can, to forever be the you you were always meant to be.

Go BIG, be bold (it is, after all, in numerology terms, a universal year of 1)! Plant your seeds (in the non-sexual sense), define your path and go forward. Into the light!

Cheers to you! Thank you to all my followers for the love and support you have shown me. It is forever and always appreciated. I wish you happiness, growth, heaps of love and joy, creativity, and unexpected abundance, and basically, your best year ever.

I leave you with one more beautiful look-to-the-new-year quote, from a beloved author, Neil Gaiman:

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

May we all surprise ourselves. Happy New Year one and all!
