Time to Choose Your Adventure (Happy New Year!)
Updated: Jan 4
"Celebrate endings—for they precede new beginnings." - Jonathan Huie
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
The New Year is upon us! It’s exciting to think about moving forward with thoughts and intentions that will create fresh starts and new beginnings for us in 2021. This unprecedented year of 2020 has caused us to see the world differently than ever before. While so many things have shifted and changed for each of us in the most unexpected ways, many of these things are moments and experiences to be grateful for.
So, take a moment to reflect with gratitude on the many gifts and blessings that this year has brought you as well. The silver linings remain for each of us if we look for them. Begin by searching for the little joys and new opportunities that you recognized and acted on. They were there, right next to the experiences that you would like to have been different. They were hidden in plain sight.
In our uniqueness, we each have our own perspectives. Ask yourself how you might reframe those situations that you wish to change. Release them, let them go, as you move forward to the new year that can hold great things for you if you allow it too.
In the midst of the fluxing in our lives, great things are always born. Now is the moment to shift out of whatever is keeping you from feeling more love in your life. Also, remember that it is in the contrast that a situation presents to us that we are able to have clarity about it. It is in the moment of change that we often become aware of our true desires.
A famous quote from Abraham-Hicks says it this way: "In order for life to expand there must be contrast. Appreciation of the contrast is allowance of the solution."
So this year, more than ever, wouldn’t you like to take your life to a whole new level of creation?! Wouldn’t you like to make this year a true adventure, and go beyond anything you have ever created before? This is a new year and it can be the most exciting year of your life if you choose. How? Because, what your life looks like is dependent on you!
Now is the time to ask yourself... “What do I truly want?”
No matter who you are and what you do every day, now is the perfect time for you to choose your intention carefully. You are worthy and capable of all of the good and great things you can imagine, at every stage of your life. So, don’t wait another minute! Start living the life you want now. It is time to look at yourself and your life in a completely new way. Stay focused on what you want every day. Be persistent in living your vision. Go for it in a way that you never considered before!
Defining dreams, setting intentions, and creating goals allows you to be in charge of your life. It allows you to wake up excited everyday, as you look forward to the new adventure unfolding before you. It’s empowering, and there is no better time than NOW to do it. Feel empowered, more than ever before, by loving yourself enough to focus on your dreams.
As we begin this process of goal setting, it is important that you simply focus on what you want, not on how you will make it happen. For now, we want your true nature, that creative genius that you really are, to come out and play. For now, you need to trust yourself and know that you deserve all that you truly desire. We will come back to “the how” in a follow-up blog. Action is important, but one step at a time.
For you to begin experiencing the power of intentions, goals and dreams in your life, try these 4 steps to help get you started:
1) Ask yourself: What do you want that will make you love your life this year? What is it that will really excite you? You can have the most fulfilling year of your life if you can imagine it. As you envision it, it should make you feel really good! So, go for the perfect outcome… go for the ideal…and shoot for the Universe! Feel lots of love as you visualize the possibilities that exist.
2) Clearly articulate what you want and dream BIG. When you dream bigger than ever before, you will set goals that will take you beyond anything you have ever achieved before. Small goals bring small results, realistic goals get you realistic results and a realistic life. But wouldn’t you love to experience the adventure of your life and “go for the gold”? Only big goals lead to big results! It's only when you think beyond anything that you ever thought possible will you create incredible things. I know this to be true and factual. I see it with my clients all the time!
3) Write your goals with "feel good" words included in them. Good feelings are what ultimately allow you to achieve your goals. So, articulate those feelings with your words. Use wonderful words of love, support and encouragement. Know your genius is within. Follow your inner guidance by tapping into your intuition. Then, as you read and write these words, you will connect your positive energy to your intentions. You’ll find the clarity, inspiration, and focus needed to direct your thoughts, words, and actions toward achieving these goals. Harvard research has proven that writing your goals down will make you 1,000% more successful than those who don’t!
4) Write your goals down in the present tense, as though you already have them. Why? Because how you feel in that present moment, as you focus on your goals, determines how it evolves into the next moment. We only ever experience our lives in the present moment, so now is the only time that matters. Your feelings in this moment shape and determine the outcome that you'll have now, as well as with each following experience as you move forward!
Please remember this... If you can imagine it, and you truly want it, you CAN have it! To achieve new, greater, and more wonderful things in any area of your life, you need to realize that everything starts with you. In order to create new things, you have to do things in a new way. You need to go beyond what you would normally do. You need to KNOW your power, the power of love within you, creates it all. The more love you feel more intensely, the calmer you become, and the more quickly you will realize your dreams. Why not start today?
I wish you a magical, Happy New Year...and for 2021 to be the best year of your life, one full of love, gratitude, and FUN beyond anything you’ve ever experienced before!
