A New Year, essentially just a New Moment…
Posted on 5th January 2023 at 15:22
As we roll in to a new year I look back over the past 12 months with so much gratitude. Love washes through me, not forgetting some pain, a fair share of tears, good and bad - the future well watered! Overall a warmth for the previous chapter now behind me.
The pressure surrounding New Year can be overwhelming. Resolutions, goals, eat better, move more, the list goes on… Essentially it is just another ‘New Moment’ and that’s where to begin, that’s exactly where you are. The moments will come together making the year ahead, but take them one at a time.
Be a little kinder to yourself, take a moment to acknowledge how far you’ve already come. Having patience and care brings balance and clarity. Perspective also playing a huge part in our growth, the willingness to be open to a different outlook brings new opportunity as well as challenge. Things won’t always work out but that’s OK, as reportedly said by Ernest Hemingway:
We are all broken. That's how the light gets in.
Look after yourself, remembering that this New Year is essentially just a New Moment… remove the pressure of the whole year ahead! Today is all you need to focus on. One step at a time.
‘Looking at beauty in the world is the first step of purifying the mind.’
Take a moment today to feel love, to smile and simply notice your breath.
Wishing you a Happy New Moment!
