You get a new chance! YOU get new chance! and YOU...get a new chance! (in Oprah's voice, google "You get a new car Oprah")
The New Year is always filled with an amazing energy. Everyone is a little nicer, people are full of hope. Every year new goals are set, new dreams, new achievements, more things we want to attain or let go of. I love setting intentions. Intentions are more open, they are able to change and grow, as I do, throughout the year. Because they are divinely inspired and ever-expanding, rather than limited just to my thoughts, for me, most of them (if not all of them) aren't fulfilled overnight.
Here are some of the ones I'm marinating on for a couple days - would love to see some of yours. Some of mine were inspired by others.
Find grace & wonder in even the most mundane moments.
Work hard and then trust myself, believe in my path, and surrender to "Everything happens for a reason, I am exactly where I should/need to be".
Be passionately curious.
Buy less - give more.
Look at my cell phone less & look up more.
Spend more time appreciating friends & family. Even if it's a short text first thing in the morning saying "Thank you and thinking of you today".
Focus more on being than getting.
Be gentler on myself & others.
Live more simply. (For me this is purging physically and mentally the things/ideas/beliefs I don't need AND "Wherever you are, be all there.")
Live in my true nature - love and service.
This year I'm making daily journaling, meditating, and gratitude lists non-negotiable. It's so fun and brings me joy (even the slightest) when I use my Pineapple Simplified Planner. Life can get busy and so far, it's kept me rolling. Already in the first week of the year, it's helped me joyfully stay on it, I'm starting my athletic/lifestyle clothing line (selling tops when I teach on dance convention - more on that coming soon!). The space pen is part of my EDC (Every Day Carry Kit). And the 5 year memory "One line a day" Journal was a birthday gift I got 3 years ago (they make great gifts - Thanks Erica!).
Sending you and your intentions for 2016 love & light!
