For me, it means:
*Leaving the Past in the Past
*Working on Becoming the Ultimate ME!
*Oh, yah….Finally getting to my Goal Weight! 😉
With all these fresh new ideas, they will take a some time to actually acknowledge them through out the day…mmmm….who knew?! Needless to say… with these grand ideas that we put out on a whim…well…..their success rate may be low. It certainly takes more than a whim or a last minute idea for something to grow. With any change, you are planting a seed. These seeds are ‘small’ in relationship to what it takes to grow these seeds, Sun and water. That is Sun and water EVERYDAY! Just like a plant, with these new changes in place, in the beginning you are young and fragile. Over time, you’ll have deep roots, a substantial core, and a lively growth. Reaping all it’s given: Sun and Water. When you think about what it takes to get a plant going, and if you have ever nursed a plant back to health, you will know, you treat it with extra special love and care. This goes the same for you. We need extra love and care for making these decisions. After all, these new changes are our ‘babies’.
With the passing of 2014, I took time to write out ALL the items I was leaving in 2014. This was a list I didn’t take lightly. Not only did I write what I was letting go, but, why I was thankful for letting each go. How did I learn from those items? After all, it’s all about learning and you certainly cannot move forward without being grateful for those items, even the not so great ones. Then I wrote ALL the items that I was creating a space for in 2015.
Writing this, it’s 13 days into the new year, and I had let myself ‘lapse’ a bit on day 10. I know that I wasn’t taking the time to affirm my changes like I had in the prior 10 days. I was starting to listen to those voices in my head saying, ‘hey, it’s ok…I’m just a corn chip…have a couple….’, They key with falling down is getting back up and recommitting to why you started the change in the 1st place. I wasn’t giving those changes the Sun and water it needed to grow.
New changes mean you need to create a space that was once filled by something else. Take time to continue to free up that space for your hopes and dreams. It just needs a space. Remember that two things cannot occupy one space. Choose which do you want 2014 or 2015?!
Be KIND to your ‘new’ you! Keep that water and Sun on it in full force everyday!
A great quote: “Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World. – Christopher Columbus
Remember that every morning is a new day. Keep the momentum going on the ‘new’ you!
Some thoughts that always gets me thinking how great we are as humans:
*We are made of the same elements are the stars
*We are not solid. You can shave off any piece of our beings, and look under a microscope and see atoms moving.
