Welcome 2016... Bring on the inner peace
Friday, January 01, 2016
I like New Years, it's the reminder that today is a new day and I can make it what I want. Every moment really is ours to shape our lives, but this one just stands out. Today I am giving up sugar for a year. Today I'm letting go of things that aren't working for me. Sugar being one of them, although not the only one. I'm not indulging. Im tired of the yoyoing. Sugar is not my friend. I'm much happier without that chocolate cake. I'm letting go of hurt. No need to hold onto that. I have had a few disappointments this last year, and in prior years, in the arena of love and friendships, but I believe that if those things were meant to be, then they would have been. I'm letting go of self doubt. I'm letting go of people who don't make me happy. There are a few people that detract, with little under handed jabs or just agendas that stray from my own, from my happiness rather add much to my life. Those relationships can go.
Dating is going to be a way more selective process as well. Currently, I'm on dating hiatus. I am putting my energy on filling my own bucket. I'm working on me, on my bucket list, and my goals currently. Open to love, but not seeking it out at the moment. Loving myself first.
This year I'm going to ride my bike more. I like the feeling of being eco friendly while getting some fresh air before and after work. I started doing that last year and it can stay. I'm buying a new car this year for when I do drive. I'm going to commit to workout more. I like when I feel strong and energetic. I like the emotional release of a good run or a good yoga class.
I am going to make 2016 a good year. I'm going to keep doing the things that I've found to bring me inner peace and joy, like catching the sunsets in the summer and beach walks with my daughter. I'm going to let go of the things have not been working like sugar and Internet dating (ugh! It's an energy steeler). I know there are some holidays that I've learned trigger bad emotions and I'm making plans for new family traditions this year for those. So welcome 2016. You are going to be a good year. I am going to make you a good year. Breath in the future, breath out the past...
Happy new year!
