Throughout the month of December, I’ll be participating in #reverb12: celebrating the successes of 2012, honoring the challenges of 2012, and planting the seeds for a rich and rewarding 2013. December is the perfect time to reflect on the year that has passed and start to manifest dreams for the new year.
Day 31:Where Are You Finishing?
Take a moment to yourself, somewhere quiet. Take a deep breath, and if you have the time/space/inclination do something that has significance for you e.g. light a candle, brew a pot of your favorite tea, play your favorite music, whatever. Think back to where you were all those moons ago, on 1 December when you started #reverb12. All the way back then, I asked: “How are you starting?” Now, I am not going to ask you “Where are you finishing?” because this is not the end. What I want to ask is, “Where are you now?”. You have spent a month honoring everything that has brought you to this place: the highs, the lows, the messy middles, the exuberant rainbows, the turbulent storms, the fresh strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, the too-tight jeans, the unexpected windfalls, the toddler tantrums (theirs or yours!), all of it. You have thanked each end every one of these things for the things they have taught you and brought you, and fully know that they reside benignly in your physical, emotional and spiritual being. You know know that while they brought you here and will always be with you, there is no reason for them to hold you back any longer. You are standing where you are, all that you are, splendidly imperfect and right in the middle of this messy delicious life. Take another deep breath. Now quickly and without thinking too much about it, finish these five sentences:
2013 is going to be MY YEAR because… I am worth it. I have a destiny to fulfill and it’s just waiting for me.
In 2013, I am going to… finally achieve my weight loss goals.
In 2013, I am going to feel…strong, accomplished, and content.
In 2013, I am not going to…give up.
In December 2013, I am going to look back and say…What an amazing year! I turned my life around and REALLY started living the life I was meant to have all along.
Happy New Year, everyone!!! I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings for all of us.
