That pesky question. The ever popular inquiry that everyone seems to make this time of year. ‘What’s your New Years Resolution?’ There always seems to be a little judgement behind that question too. Like ‘What are you going to fail at this year? Seems to be how it goes. Since I’m not too big on resolutions, I’ve made intentions and hopes in years past. Looking back at my hopes for last year, I’d say I did pretty well with them. I was able to learn more about who my authentic self is and live according to her wishes. I also began a journey in improving my health that including several visits to a Functional Medicine Doctor and getting more definitive answers about what is ailing me. The intention I set last year that I came up short in was to stop being so negative toward my body. This could still use some work, and this will be where I set my intention and hopes this year as well.
Of course I have other goals as well. I have career goals, and life goals, but I want to be able to undoubtedly give my body the love and respect it deserves. This is the next step in my healing journey, from autoimmunity, from negativity and from my own harsh words. This is going to be a working in journey. One that will challenge my way of thinking I’m sure and frustrate me at times, but it is absolutely necessary. I’ll be reading books, writing and creating art. Lets see where this process takes me!
Sounds really good to me. We’re often so hard on ourselves and a big part of healing comes from knowing and being proud of who we are. You’ve come this far, and you’ll go much further. Happy New Year. 🙂
Definitely agree! Happy New Year to you!
