“…if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet success unexpected in common hours.”
– Henry David Thoreau, Walden
“When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier!”
– Diane Van Furstenberg
“When you’re stuck, pour on the major self-compassion.”
– Danielle LaPorte #truthbomb
Ever since I began the process of becoming intentional about my life, my New Year has shifted. It is no longer something that I dread – the tortured reminder of everything that I wanted to get done and didn’t (posting weekly in 2015, for example) – but the excited anticipation of what is to come (posting weekly in 2016, ha!)
I am choosing to look forward, to not dwell longingly in the past with tears of lamentation – I am not joking here; I have done this! You can ask my Hubby.
In 2016, I have goals! Mercy, do I have goals: running a half marathon is one that may beg reconsideration. However, for me, my goals will not be my focus. I am choosing to focus on continuing the process of becoming my own best friend and living the life that I’ve imagined. And when, not if, I get stuck, pouring on major self-compassion.
I wish the same for you!
Happy New Year!
