First I would like to wish all a very Haappy, Healthy, Peaceful and Joyous New Year! Many of us take this opportunity to put into action the resolutions that we have thought about all year long. The problem with this is that by the 19th of January, statistics tell us, we are no longer motivated to continue our new habits. It is the same old, same old, and we are frustrated and upset with ourselves. I suggest that this should be the last year any of us thinks in terms of New Years Resolutions. THEY DO NOT WORK!
My suggestion is that we take stock of the things that have not worked for us in the past year, do some journal writing about each item so that we really understand what exactly it is that did not work for us and why. Do a bit of meditation on what we have discovered, and then take a giant step forward by accepting and loving ourselves just as we are… with all our baggage, all of our faults and all of our positive assets and then mindfully move into this new year.
Having completed those steps, we can now come from a more loving, and nurturing place; rather then from that harsh and judgmental mindset. The term for this is unconditional self love, and this is what enables us to make healthy, permanent changes in our lives. In order to begin change on a deep and meaningful level for life-long growth; we must love ourselves as we are right now, despite our faults, fat, laziness, and impatience. All changes must come from inside out, we must Bloom Inside Out. Plant the seeds for change deep inside, then care for them on a daily basis and watch them bloom.
I have found that when we do this deep internal work, accept ourselves for who we are, and love ourselves in spite of our faults; this love translates into an ability to permanently modify those behaviors for lasting change. We must take stewardship over our bodies and spirit, before we can take stewardship over our ailing planet. If you get healthy first, by healing your body and your relationships, you will by extension become a part of the solution for healing our planet as well.
