New Day, New Year, Anything is Possible


January 1. 2010. Ten minutes past midnight.

New Year’s Resolutions are not really my thing. My style is more like that of painter: broader brushstrokes, organic and impressionistic. I love to daydream; to imagine and feel down to my bones – in the BIGGEST way possible – what I most hope and desire. Here’s is my bleary-eyed-it’s-too-late-to-be-up-writing-this partial list for 2010 [in no particular order]…

To cultivate EASELAUGH MORE…. Giggle for no reason.Not care what people think… Take naps in a hammockby the sea…  Take myself much less seriouslyHave  fun ACCEPT imperfectionLook people in the eyesALLOW discomfort… Allow that I have more fleshy layers around my belly than I did when I was thirty (love my  love handles)… Finish and publish my second bookBE on Oprah… Meet Ellen DeGeneresTake nothing personally… LAUGH MORE…. Trust that I am fully funded by the Bank of God in this elastic Universe of oursExperience PURE EASE when I’m in the spotlight … BREATHE … Deeply… Keep writing and blogging my heart out even though it feels sometimes like no one is reading any of itTRUST in my own wisdom... Receive more of those amazing waves of Grace that wash over me, unbeckoned, in the early morning … Let go… of needing to be perfect, to be everything to everyone… and just…

Take one step at a time fluidly and deliberatelywith courage, compassion, and joy.

That is what I self-FULLY desire for me this year (for now).

How about you? What does your spacious self most desire in 2010? Go for it. Anything is possible.

    “We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives not looking for flaws, but for potential.” –Ellen Goodman [With appreciation to Patti for posting it on my Facebook fan page!]
