Hello everyone!! Happy Christmas morning!!
I am sitting here in my bed, drinking my tea, and thinking about this year in review. Thinking about who I was at the beginning and who I am now. Thinking about the things that I done and learned and experienced and all the places I went and people I met and spent time with. What a year!!
I started 2013 with the goal of creating LOVE in my life. I did not really know what that meant, or what I was embarking on. I am finishing 2013 full of LOVE and ZEST for my life, and with a new slogan to live by. It’s been quite the year.
For the past several years, I have been bouncing from place to place, exploring the world, talking yoga and anything else to anyone who cares to listen. I fully believe that ANYTHING is possible, and I include it in my teaching…make a goal, see the goal, create the goal…add a lot of hard work, some sweat and maybe a few tears, and voila, you have reached your goals…or they moved and shifted and you reached whatever you were meant to reach! The other day, however, I realized that I have two categories for “ANYTHING”. I have my, “current & future” anything, and I have my, “already know I don’t” anything.
What???? Hold the phone!! It was quite a revelation. I exist in the realm of possibility that anything AND everything is possible for me, for you, for whoever…but I also have this realm that seems to be the proverbial “box of old crap under the bed” that I have decided I do not want anymore, but can’t seem to get rid of…know what I mean? A list of things that I have decided “nope, never”. In this box under the bed is all sorts of things like old beliefs about myself (“not athletic, can’t eat like “normal” people, don’t have enough money, not co-ordinated, too weird, don’t fit in…blah blah blah”). These are the things that I have let go of, but like to acknowledge from time to time so I know where I have come from. However, there are also the things under there that I have tried and decided that I don’t want/like (snow sports, eating certain foods, going to the post office…this list seems simple and not profound, but in the realm of “anything is possible”, these things just don’t exist…why have disdain for mailing a package or dismiss snow sports simply because one time I didn’t like the experience? We are different through our lives…We EVOLVE, we grow, we change, so the things of the past are simply that, the past. We change physically deep down every single day, on a cellular level, so why would we ever hold ourselves back from this same change and evolution mentally? Just because one time there was something that happened that we reacted to in the body or mind in the past, does not mean that we must still hold that same experience today. It feels like a pretty big realization…realizing that I only half believe my own personal life motto. I have the feeling 2014 is going to be a pretty fun year…
So…what I have noticed in this revelation is that I now have TWO lines to live by:
“anything is possible” & “never say never”.
Through “anything is possible” I have been able to show myself that I can create what I imagine. If I can create a picture of it, then the visualization and manifestation is easy! Moving into “never say never” has suddenly opened up a whole new can of possibility because not only do I have all the things to do that I have NOT done yet, but now I have all the things in the box under my bed that I might have to re-visit!! All the things I have decided I don’t like are now back on the table! Ha, ain’t life grande??!!
Happy Christmas, my loves. This has been an amazing year for me in so many ways. Take a few minutes for yourself today and think about your year, what you brought into it and what you are taking away. Maybe think about what your goals are for 2014. We are such powerful beings, we are perfect and amazing and awesome…I hope you feel it ;).
2013 has been the year of LOVE. I hope your holiday is filled with LOVE and JOY for as many miles as you can see.
