So, it’s January 1, 2014. It feels like a new beginning, a fresh start…full of possibility. The newness of the first day of the year is a wonderful gift, but it only comes once a year. The truth is that we have the opportunity to start each and every single day fresh and full of possibility. We get to decide each day who we will be, what we will do with our day and what we will bring to the world. We get to choose what we will see, how much love we will spread, how much joy we will live and how much peace we will feel.
We’re all doing our best, working towards becoming more of ourselves and showing up more authentically in the world; whether we know it or not, that is what we’re doing. Some days it works well and some days we struggle and cause suffering for ourselves and others around us. Each day and each moment, we have the opportunity and the ability to choose to start fresh and choose love.
“The human emotional system can be broken down into roughly two elements:
fear and love.
Love is of the soul.
Fear is of the personality.”
~ Gary Zukav – from “Seat Of The Soul” ~
This year as I continue to work on closing the gap between what I know and what I am living, and then expanding to a new gap as I learn more (I’m figuring out that life is lived in the gap and there will always be one), I do have one main goal in mind. I hope to live from a place of love that leaves no room for fear. I will use this space to share how that will look in my life. I want to live with an open heart in each moment, allowing me to assume nothing, take nothing personally and listen to Life deeply as it continues to guide me to more of myself. I want to choose more of the soul and less of the personality. I want to spread love wherever I can. I want to use all that I know and embrace the unknown as I continue to build habits that will support my growth, always turning away from fear and towards love as I push through to the essential me. I will fail, I will try again, I will start fresh a lot. I will share openly with us all here.
I am grateful for this space. Every time I hit publish on one of these posts, it feels like a fresh conscious moment to choose who I am. As part of my love, not fear, open heart, lived moment by moment year, I am opening the site up for comments. I am ready now. I welcome the idea of connecting with my readers more. I feel ready to hear how others are living what they know and I hope to build a nice space for us all to learn and grow. Thank you everyone for sharing this space with me.
Wishing us all the courage and presence to awaken every single day to the possibility that we are. Sending you love and joy!
