From New Year’s resolutions to New Year New You programs and all the hubbub over fixing, reinventing, and creating a different version of you. No wonder there’s so much anxiety, self-hate and judgment in the world. 

There is nothing to ‘fix’ or ‘reinvent’. There is no need for a NEW you. There is nothing wrong with the YOU that you are now and a new day marked on the calendar is not going to change that.

Those statements and thoughts create the mindset of error or wrong. There are no errors or wrongs. There are only lessons to be learned and change/growth to be had.

We get so wrapped up in our desires of wants, the society-created ideas of success, our self-imposed beliefs of ‘making it’ that we strive for things that don’t even serve us. Things we don’t need or even really want if we are being honest.

So, how about we make a resolution to shift the mindset of there needing to be a NEW you and ask instead…

How do I want to feel??

How do I want to feel??
I want to feel every moment. every connection. every breath.
I want to feel the joy interweaved amongst the grief.
I want to feel the gratitude meshed with the sadness.
I want to feel the blessings beside the brokeness.

I want to FEEL… I want to feel it all. 

I want to feel embraced by the connection to my heart and the acceptance of my story. to know and learn what it feels like to fully accept and connect to myself despite all my flaws, fears and failures. To feel that unshakeable truth. 

I want to feel seen, to feel love and loved by a world that is crying out and yearning for the darkness to fade.
