New Year – Empty spaces
I’m reflecting on this past year before the door to 2017 closes.
My guess is that I’m not the only one.
I just realized that it would be good to do this more regularly. Stop, and listen inward, reflect on where I am.
Am I where I want to be in the now? If not, can I accept the now? Can I change anything moving forward?
What do I want to fill my life with? Meaningful moments, activities, stillness and treasured meetings with family and friends. Then my heart is full and I can shine my love for you, for life – into the world.
How will I chose to act and live in 2018? What doesn’t serve me any longer? Who should be in my life? What can I do to surround myself with the right kind of people (for me) and live a life that breaths to the rhythm of my heart? So I can stand tall and be my true self.
Everything is blank in front of me when I step into 2018. It’s a good thing.
I will fill the blank canvas with meaningful colorful warm strokes as I go…. and fill the blank pages with heartfelt words that will bring me to you.
I want to choose to fill my empty spaces in my way and in my time. Then the empty spaces will be the truest, most colorful me. And my moments will be filled with love together with you.
I’m ready to turn my back to 2o17, which was not a good year for me. Of course it had its good moments and they will stay in my heart. I know that this past year have been difficult for many people for various reasons. I’m WITH you to step into 2018 and not knowing what 2018 will entail.
I want to approach 2018 moment by moment and fill each moment with my heart’s desire and meaning.
How will you leave 2017 behind and greet 2018?
I do have one wish for all of us during 2018 though … let’s be kind to one another … let’s meet heart to heart.
I will not close the door to 2017 gently this year, as I normally do when one year is to end and another year is to begin.
I will slam the door to 2017 shut, hard.
I’m not afraid to meet the unknown in the empty spaces in front of me.
2018 is for you and I to meet our truest selves and to bring meaning to the empty spaces. My way, your way, together with our hearts open.
I don’t know what 2018 will bring, and that is okay.
2018 – bring it on!
