When a new year begins it’s the human thing to try change things up a bit right?
Clean the house, declutter, new year resolutions we will not keep to, and on and on.
This year has started on a low for many because of the pandemic, loss of incomes and natural disasters. The world seems to be on a downward decline and no country has been spared.
It is easy to get depressed as there is almost nothing to be happy or positive about. But hold up! Let us stop looking at the bigger picture for the moment, and focus on the little things that matter.
Those moments that one is able to take pause and be grateful for being alive, being healthy, being healed, being near loved ones. Being present in yourself.
There are many things around us that we may not seem to appreciate and take for granted and I want this to change for myself this year.
This year I want to begin and end each day in gratitude. I want to reconnect with God and express my sincere desire to be in His presence at all times, to thirst for divine guidance, to make amends to those I have wronged and to strive to be a better human.
I know it will not be easy, but I am going to be easy on myself. One day at a time, one prayer at a time, one step at a time, one quiet moment at a time.
I will not try to fit in others’ perceptions, categories of what I should be or how I should behave. I want to be me, as His plan for me intended. I want to explore and know myself as the person my creator intended me to be. I want to be fine and accept myself as a work in progress, and be receptive to how I will be led into my divine purpose.
What about you?
What does this new year mean to you, and what do you want to get out of it?
