”Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” – Anais Nin
New Year’s Resolutions… whaaaat?! not this again. Pop the bubbly, Let’s Go! Gym memberships, stop drinking or smoking, being a better person, stop cursing, save money, no more hording or getting rid of clutter, find love, cut out junk foods, carbs & sugars. Whatever the resolution is that we seem to TALK about — these “This Year I’m Going To-Do’s” — we start out doing them then in 13 days or so, eventually it fizzles out like the bubbles in a glass of champagne.
Well this year in particular, I have started something interesting, my “New Year’s Affirmations.” A honest and non-complicated way to be REAL with ourselves by understanding and accepting the truth about who we REALLY are and how those who truly love us no matter have accepted us. It’s not so much about material things but more about being the change we want to see in ourselves and the change we want to see in the world.
In the three years+ many of us (myself included) have had a few calm before the storm experiences that has crushed our spirit. Bringing up fears, worries, and doubts. We may have experienced peoples passive-aggressive actions, lack of support, and discouraging words became an internal hurricane destroying the very person we fought to become in this life. 2013 is a time for restoration, for the LAST TIME… LETTING IT ALL GO! Having faith and knowing the truth that based on wrong decisions we have made and those who smile in our faces but deep down wish for things to not happen for us, what is meant for us will be restored. Our words and thoughts have the power of greatness, it’s all about how we utilize them in the world that will support and inspire others.
My Lucky 13’s — thirteen affirmations in 13 days — an honest view of the change I set to be to the world and bring into fruition throughout 2013. I have already per-scheduled the six of my thirteen affirmations until I return. I would love for everyone to share their “Lucky Thirteens.” Please feel free to post your thirteen affirmations on my facebook page, click on LUCKY 13 to post on my wall. I look forward to checking them out.
