A post over on Becky Levine’s blog yesterday titled, This Year’s Xmas Present, where she writes about a Christmas gift she received from her son, served as a great reminder to me that the world is filled with endless possibilities. Some days we need these reminders more than others.
With the New Year coming I like the idea that there are 365 days of possibilities just waiting to happen. I love it when something suddenly shows up in our lives to surprise and delight us, something that comes to us right out of the blue without expectation. If we can imagine it, then it has the potential to show up in our lives. I really like that thought.
Last year I made a list of New Year’s Intentions rather than resolutions. Resolutions are notorious for being broken shortly after they’ve been made. It’s as if we’re trying to bully ourselves into doing something or else.
Early in the New Year I intend to go back over my list, check off the intentions that became reality for me, and see which one I want to add to my list for the coming year. Not only do I use my list to dream big, but I always make sure to add smaller things as well. That way when I reflect back over the past year I find myself inspired by all that has come into my life. I am able to look at this list of intentions with gratitude for all that is, rather than reflecting upon what might be lacking. My system might not be perfect but it works for me.
As we head into a New Year may you be open to allowing a steady stream of endless possibilities into your life.
Happy New Year!
