And so 2017 melts away and 2018 begins with energies renewed…
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.”
A new year dawns so bright, so hopeful, so fresh and gloriously pure. There is a promise in the air, a lightness born of untouched aspirations and buoyant anticipations. Optimism gleams, shiny with untold and untapped potential. This year will be the one. This year will be different. This year I will.
January first brings with it a rosy sanguineness and one that I know I feel from the top of my head down to my little toes. I relish the newness, the cheerfulness that a clean calendar and a blank slate a new year represents. While this newness can apply to each new day, each new hour, there is a particular feeling that goes with that shift of the year, an anticipation that makes me giddy.
Usually this means I come crashing down at some point, disappointed by my lack of change or resolve, however, after this last difficult, strangulating year things are different. I’m different. I have felt a shifting inside, a subtle, yet staggering alignment to something else, something new, something profoundly ME. I am still feeling the glorious high of newness, of eager, fire-in-the-belly change, but there is a soft denseness to it that wasn’t quite there before.
I want to relish this feeling. I want to cultivate it and feed it so that each day has this sense of hope, of promise and earnest passion for life, for my life. So that is exactly what I’m going to do. 2018 is the start of something new alright, it’s the start of a new sort of flourishing and a delicious flow of my own energies and aspirations. I am taking that new year feeling and I’m going to infuse it into all my days, all my activities and motions. I am made anew with each breathe and each moment and I am vibrating high with this sweet and awesome gift.
How do you want to greet not just this new year, but each new day, each fresh moment you have? It’s so worth thinking about. You are the creator of your life. You are the source of your powers. And YOU are made anew with each breathe you take. May this new year be filled with wonder, magic, lessons learned, and growth made and may you flourish!
