As 2016 came to a close, I started to think about what it is that I want to accomplish in 2017. What is it that I want to do, experience, thrive at. What kind of impact do I make on the world next year. Sometimes, I tend to overthink things. I am sure that many of you may do the same.
I have a credo hanging in my office that was shared with me when I was a student at IIN. This is credited to Marilena Minucci from QuantumCoachingMethod.com. I love the sentiment in this credo and I have decided that for 2017, I am going to adopt the wisdom from this credo into my daily life and really live it!
I have never been a big believer in the concept of New Year’s resolutions as most of them get broken. I prefer to make a promise to myself of something that is tangible and meaningful. What is your promise to yourself for 2017?
“In this moment….
I choose to lighten up on my path to enlightenment,
I choose to not add one more thing to the burden on my shoulders
I choose to not say I am not good enough one more time
I choose to say I am doing the best that I can and
that I am perfect in my imperfection.
I choose to let in the light…and know that every way in which I thought I was broken is in fact a blessing that will bring in more light…that to be creaked wide open is the way to late in as much light as I can.
I choose to accept that it is my right to be here not because of what I do or produce but just because I am. God and the universe need nothing more from me than simply to be me. I choose to give back all the negative vibes and critical thinking that keep me small. It is an illusion I once bout into but no longer.
I am over being small and know I deserve to dream big because I am a child of the universe.
And I choose to stay connected to the energy and light of those that journey with me and who hold me to my highest.
And on days I may falter…I will remember this light and energy and the promise of all that is to be received and is on its way to me now.”
I hope that your 2017 is off to a great start and that you will accomplish all you set out to do this year and in the future.
