I don’t really like writing a letter to myself, although my mind does it constantly. I don’t want to commit to anything for the new year and I am not interested in having new good resolutions or setting new goals; I just want to be.
Yet, a new year gives me the opportunity to remember the cycles of life; and assess my challenges, my gifts, and the quality of my happiness.
I know the road ahead is bumpy. Unpredictable, drastic shifts are still part of the picture. How do I prepare myself for any catastrophes, injustices, or destructions? How do I stay engaged and connected in a world that sometimes gives me so much heart break?
I need to keep doing what I am doing. I need to keep strengthening, from within, over, and over my personal foundation. The more vibrant I am, the less clingy I become. The more grounded I am, the less attached I am to external events. For this to happen, I need the discipline to love myself over and over again. From there, I can identify my shadow, without a story, and be seen fully. From there, I am able to be vulnerable and stay connected in the most uncomfortable times.
As I love myself, I become lighter from letting go of heavy baggage or strong pre-conditioned behaviors. I open the door to the adventure of living beyond good and bad.
Will you write a letter to yourself?
With much love,
