Ready? To Let Go and Embrace!

31DecAKO-Fearless

Today is the perfect day to decide what you are ready to let go, release and forgive. Take a moment and ponder. Think about your year. Ask yourself the following questions: What are you ready to let go? What are you ready to release? What are you ready to forgive?

My year was filled with many ups and downs. I am ready to let go of all the hurts, the grief, the struggle, the unnecessary drama, poor communication and misunderstanding, pretenses and phoniness, disconnect, fear, the extra weight upon my frame that only serves to drag down my high spirits and energy.

I ready to let go of my resistance to change and avoidance of new experiences. I am ready to release seeking approval from others. I am ready to let go of criticism, especially self-criticism. I am ready to release my uneasiness around certain people and new situations. I am ready to forgive all the wrongs and negative situations of my past. I am ready to let go of ALL those things and actions that no longer serve me.

2013 will be a powerful year; a year that will allow me to shake out all the old ways and habits that no longer serve me. It is a year to fully step into creative self-expression and abundant support for my dream from all that is. 2013 is a time for my vision to become a reality. I am ready to appreciate, invite and embrace love in my life, success, great health, a fit body, successful publication of my books, travel opportunities and adventures into unknown territory that will bring me prosperity. I am ready to step into my life fearlessly and live!

What are you ready to embrace, invite and appreciate in 2013? Take this opportunity to really think about it. I invite you to narrow all your thoughts from all the questions in this article into one word you wish to fully live in 2013. My word of the year is FEARLESS.

Faith

 

Faith, what is it really? According to the dictionary faith is confidence or trust in a person, entity or thing, for example, faith in another’s ability. Faith is belief that is not based on proof.

C.S. Lewis expressed that faith is merely the virtue by which we hold to our reasoned ideas, despite our moods to the contrary.

In some scopes of thinking, faith is a conviction that something is; a determination to accomplish one’s goals; and/or a sense of joy deriving from both.

So, what is faith to me?

I perceive, comprehend and grasp the nature of faith to be a deep trust, a profound confidence and a relentless belief without the benefit of any proof.

I have faith in myself to carry out everything I plan to do to fulfill my new year goals, resolutions and intentions. I have faith in my family and friends, who will support my goals, resolutions and intentions. Faith is needed and desired to develop and nurture any relationship including and most importantly the relationship with our own selves. Faith is such a positive word and positive feeling.  As such, I humbly perceive faith to be closely related to love. Love and faith go together like milk and cookies.

Perhaps you could have one without the other but it would be a shallow experience; like having cookies without milk. Milk adds so much more to the cookie experience. Yes, I seem to have food on the brain, but that is because it makes a good illustration of love and faith; and, how the two go together.

I profoundly believe and trust my spouse. I have faith in him. I love him. Could I love my spouse without trusting him? It would only be a shallow form of love. Profound, unconditional love requires faith. Anyone who has been in more than one significant relationship knows when you do NOT have faith in your partner, your relationship is doomed.

So, along this line of thinking: if we do NOT have faith in ourselves, then our relationship with ourselves is in trouble. How can we repair that profound belief in ourselves? I propose that one great way is to KEEP those promises we make to ourselves, especially those promises that involve self-love and self-care like our new year resolutions, intentions and goals. Keep the faith and Happy New Year! 

Celebrate!

look ahead to future endeavors and events.  

Celebrate each moment as you experience it. 

I am off to celebrate…more to come later…♥

Anticipation

Anticipation. Is it a positive or negative emotion? Well, I suppose it depends on how the word anticipation is used because anticipation generally conveys an act of looking ahead or forward with delightful expectation. Anticipation is also a visualization of a future event or state of being. This is also a benign definition. Anticipation, or being enthusiastic, is an emotion or feeling that involves delight, pleasure, excitement, but at times a small amount of anxiety (tension, worry, fearful concern, or uneasiness) can be associated with it when considering an expected  event. So, anticipation can be negative if the expected event is not necessarily desirable such as a visit to a doctor or dentist.

Let us focus on the positiveness of anticipation like a brand new year. A new year brings with it a clean slate of time, a whole 366 days unscathed with events, good or bad. Yes, 366 days instead of our standard 365 days because 2012 is a leap year. We get an extra day. That is exciting, is it not? Of course, we have to wait until February 29. Anticipation, enthusiasm, looking ahead…do those in any way take away from now? Does it take away from being in the moment? I suppose it could especially if you are anticipating something neutral or negative like a doctor’s appointment or tax day? Hey, but we get that extra day in February, right?

Looking ahead with enthusiasm can be enriching as you live in the moment because right now you can see yourself in a state of bliss doing any future event or activity as you choose, like vacationing on a beach of your choice or having your book accepted by a renowned publishing house. Do we not live in anticipation of each new moment? Or do we dread the next moment? I propose that is totally up to you. For me I look forward to each and every moment where I can choose to do and feel whatever I choose. Why not anticipate? Anticipate the joy of the next moment as you enjoy this moment…and this moment….and this moment. It does go on and on does it not?

Anticipation can be fun. I propose that even those future events in our lives that seem less positive can be visualized with joy. For example, anticipating a session with the dentist can be visualized as seeing yourself with a clean, bright smile with minimal amount of probing and prodding because you followed through everyday (hopefully after each meal and before bedtime) taking care of your teeth that is brushing and flossing with enthusiasm in anticipation of going to the dentist so your appointment would be more pleasurable. Hey, how amazing is that? Do you see how your anticipation prepares you and guides your actions? You can do things now that will influence and create your anticipated future. Happy anticipating 2012!
