As we enter the new year, we find ourselves reflecting on the status of our lives. We look back on where have we been, what we have we done, whom have we interacted with and why things turned out as they did. We find ourselves happily rejoicing over successes, mourning over losses, rethinking those things that were not to our liking and often discarding that which does not serve us or makes us feel less than good. It is as if a period of life as we know it has come to an end, and therefore we are provided with a natural opening for transition and reinvention.
Change is the constant that moves us through life, and conscious change is one of the most powerful tools we possess.
As you enter the new year, may you judge yourself gently and with kindness. Acknowledge all the good you brought to the world and remind yourself of the loving gifts you shared. Give yourself the kudos you deserve. Forgive yourself and others freely for any transgressions, and forgive and release any negative and unhealthy emotions that you harbor for yourself or others. Now is the time to release all that weighs you down and holds you back. Now is the time to let go. Now is the time to move forward free of regret and dismay. Open yourself to the beauty of life and allow yourself the same fresh start that you allow for others.
You are a beautiful child of God, and as such you are a masterpiece. Move forward with this knowledge and you will have a truly Happy New Year.
Now, that’s Powerful!
