2013 has been a great year filled with new hopes and new beginnings. With each year we have a new set of dreams that we wish to follow. As the year closes, we look to begin a new chapter in our lives, and just how you would cleanse yourself or release your personal feelings when you get out of a relationship, it is actually good to cleanse or release your feelings for the year that is about to come to an end as well, and yes, say goodbye and release 2013!
A simple way we can do this is by simply taking some time to yourself to reflect today…
Reflect on 2013 and the person who you’ve transformed into in these last 12 months of your life.
Reflect on the new relationships you’ve made, the new projects you’ve taken on, or goals that you’ve achieved, things you’ve had to let go of, key events that have transformed you or helped you to see things in a different perspective. Write them down.
Write down all the things that you’ve discovered about yourself this year. We’re constantly discovering new things and sometimes when it comes down to yourself, we forget to acknowledge the things we’ve discovered about our own selves and our own life. These little things we realize about ourselves actually play a huge role in the way we choose to live our lives, and the decisions we make.
Also write down what you’re proud of, and what you’re thankful for, express your gratitude for everything that you have. Feel the love you have of your life which surrounds you.
Now, light a candle and visualize yourself letting go of all old feelings or ideas that didn’t serve a purpose to our greater self and welcome new ideas and thoughts of love and gratitude for what currently surrounds us in our lives. This is what we will carry with us as we welcome the new year. This is what truly matters, not the old baggage we’ve carried through last year, not the failures that we’ve had…leave that all behind with the close of 2013.
Today, is all about acknowledging and celebrating the year that is about to come to an end and embracing a new year with an open, positive mind. I’m excited for 2014 and what I believe it will bring, and I want to express my gratitude for those of you who are reading this right now and those who follow me and support my work. I am truly grateful to have you in my life and please stick around for new things to come this year.
2014 is your year to SHINE, I believe in you.
