Oh, Hi 2017!
You got here quick!
But seriously, life just passes you by when you aren't being present. Towards the end of every year, I get anxious for the new year to finally start--my body aches and my stomach is in knots from all of the holiday foods, my bank account is anxiously awaiting a deposit, I am exhausted from the shopping and erratic scheduling of last minute appointments and parties, and I'm simply ready to shut down and restart.
i get angry at the goals I didn't accomplish, I get upset if I have forgotten my goals, and I say that the upcoming year is a second chance.
The reality is, every day is another chance. Actually, every hour, every minute, every whatever is a second chance. i can eat the spoonful of ice cream now, give up, and eat the whole pint, knowing that my stomach is going to be unhappy later. Or I can make the choice to stop at one spoonful--my destiny is completely up to me.
So I failed at my #DAILYDRAW. To be honest, writing daily was ambitious. And secondly, I still don't know where to draw the line in terms of how much I share. If I keep it on the surface, it gets redundant. If I go all in, well, that's jut a lot of crazy I'm throwing out into the internet. i'm going to continue the tarot reflections, but I'm not quite sure in what capacity.
The only thing I know, is that this year, I want to LIVE. If that's all I do in 2017, I'll be satisfied. To live is to be present, be engaged, have purpose. If I can do that, I think I can take huge steps towards what I want.
So this year, what is your number one intention?
