Let Go of 2013

20130726-213444

One of the happiest moments ever is when you feel the courage to let go of what you can’t change.

As 2013 winds down, it’s time for clearing, time for looking back upon the past year and settling it in the present.  It’s time to plan for the future in the present tense and to allow the beauty of the present moment to shine its shining star upon our lives.  It’s a time to reevaluate priorities, to engage in the lesson planning for the coming year and to develop a theme for what we are setting out to accomplish.

I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions as it gives me too much agita when they go awry.  Instead, I am working on a theme for 2014.  No best laid plans, but instead a red carpet runner which includes what I am setting out to accomplish ~ one baby step at a time.  To me, it’s better to divide and conquer in small steps than it is to establish grandiose plans which in an instant can be wiped out tsunami-style in the blink of a disappointed eye.

Letting go is my theme for the next few days, purging what doesn’t suit and what doesn’t feel right anymore.  It takes courage to do this you know.  To allow the judgments to have their own and to be at peace within in order to go on.  Peace has settled within me lately and I’m finding the joy in simply being present and allowing that presence to shine.

May your essence shine as well today and always.

Shine On!
