It is a new year and though we are only a few days into it nothing much has changed, at least not noticeably. We are still dealing with a frightful virus and divisive politics, a masked populace, severe unemployment, crazy climate. fires and floods.
But here at Lupin we have the opportunity to learn from all the lessons we encountered in 2021 and do our best to navigate 2022 with greater ease. I am always aware that if I want things to change, I have to change. Changing one’s habits and perceptions and letting go of assumptions is not easy but if one is willing it is possible and what a difference it makes. “A little willingness goes a long way”.
So, if one is going to make a New Years resolution it is wise to be aware of the places that stand in the way of getting or doing what we want to make our lives better or more manageable. Am I or you willing to let go of them? When I am clear about my intention, (my personal mission statement) and keep it front and center in my consciousness it becomes easier. I can go to it and ask, am I on track, what is keeping me off track? Am I willing to let go of the things that keep me from feeling nurtured, safe , clean and healthy?
Let’s say yes and see if we can hold the space for each of us to indeed have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
