The time around my birthday and the winter solstice has always been a special time for me — an opportunity to reflect, a chance plan, a dawning. Often in the past I’ve made lists of things I wanted to do in my new year, goals I wanted to accomplish.
But there wasn’t a list in me this year. As I sat there starting at the blank sheet of paper, all I felt was a strong desire for transformation.
The resolutions and goals I had written in the past, things like “lose 15 pounds,” had no weight for me anymore. I realized I didn’t want my life to be a list any longer.
So rather than set goals for 2015, I set an intention: to believe.
I believe my cat is going to be okay, that he’s going to fight cancer and win. I believe that I can let go of old patterns and ways of being that did not serve me. I believe I can transform my business and myself. I believe that I am connected to other people, to the Universe. I believe that I’m part of a bigger picture, and that I’ll fully step into my role helping others this year.
This is the year I believe in all of my magic.
What’s your intention or word for this year?
