Happy New Year to All! Instead of making New Year’s resolutions, I would like to propose that you take this time to reflect on all that you have done and accomplished and all that you are. There is nothing wrong with resolutions to improve oneself, but inherent in resolutions is the acknowledgement that we fell short or failed in some way. Can you take the time and give yourself the gift of honoring yourself? Honor all that is both ordinary and extraordinary about you and your life. If you are a mother, honor yourself for all the many things you have selflessly done and continue to do on a daily basis for your children (need I name them all? The list is far too long…) If you are in an intimate relationship or have been in one, honor yourself for being vulnerable and open to love, for giving, and for making efforts at nurturing the relationship to be healthy, solid, and mutually supporting. If you have cared for an elderly family member, friend or someone who is/was battling illness, honor yourself for your loving compassionate care and for the giving of your time. If you work, whether it is for an employer, for yourself, or in your home, honor yourself for showing up, for sharing your talents and skills and for putting your best foot forward. If you volunteer for non-profits, honor yourself for your efforts to be of help and for supporting good causes. If you have had challenges in your life, honor yourself for getting through the tough times and for learning and growing through them. Honor yourself for your courage, commitment, determination, and creativity that is expressed in your daily life.
Honor yourself for being a friend/ sister/brother, wife/husband/significant other/daughter/son, mentor/teacher/guide/mother/father/grandparent – and honor yourself for being human and for being spirit in human embodiment. Honor yourself for continuing to learn through active engagement in relationships. It is essential to honor yourself, for as you do, you enhance the light and love energies in your field, thus opening the way to more honoring and love to come to you from the outside. But it begins with you. It begins now. Happy New Year!
Love, Light and Blessings, Robin
