Every year I look forward to the new year as being a year to transform into something better, something stronger, something wiser. If that is happening, I’m not seeing it.
“There are years that ask questions and years that answer. Zora Neale Hurston.
And are there years when nothing happens? Sometimes I feel like this is what 2019 was like for me. But I now realize that I spent the entire year of asking questions.. what, why? Will 2020 finally answer those questions and find solutions.
“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in the life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self discovery.”
I’m not sure I would see my health issues as delightful, although they might be a vehicle of self discovery. But maybe if I change my attitude a bit, I can see moving to a new home as both a delightful self discovery.
“Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change. What are you hopes for the future as you reflect on the years that have passed?”
Right now, my hopes are for more comfort. Comfort in less pain physically, a more accessible and comfortable home, comfort in finding some accomplishment and success.
“Gradually as you become curator of your own contentment, you will learn to embrace the gentle yearnings of your heart. But this year, instead of resolutions, write down your most private aspirations. Those longings you have kept tucked away until the time seems right. Trust that now is the time.”
Trust. Time. Can I?
“Ask the questions. The Simple Abundance path brings confidence that the answers will come and we will discover, day by day, how to live them.
Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself.”
