from a newsletter by Tama Kieves:
How did you respond to your life? Who did you become through facing the circumstances in your life? Did you uncover new capacities or did an old wound surface and limit your confidence and love? Did you try on new ways of being or did you momentarily freeze? Did you realize that your “identity” is just a set of beliefs and you can change your beliefs at any time?
Collect all that was good and true and put it into your box to take with you. Remember moments you shined or dared. Remember moments you realized something new. Remember people or resources that showed up, even for an instant. Put everything you loved about this year in the box. You are going to leave everything else behind. When you leave something behind, discard it like an article of clothing that just doesn’t fit. This is not about shunning or condemning anything.
Dream big. Go for it. Get naked about what you truly want. These are your years. Who do you want to become in the time ahead?
Here’s a Year End Invocation you might find helpful. I’m hoping it helps you ease into your true destiny in the coming year ahead.
“I bless this year of my life. I bless all that it offered me. And I bless all that I received. I thank myself for this year of my life. I thank myself for everything I tried, whether or not it worked. I thank myself for the times I believed in myself, even if I couldn’t sustain it for as long as I would have liked. I thank myself for the times I got it right. I thank myself for the times I stretched. I thank myself for the times I was generous with myself. I thank myself for the times I invested in my dreams. I thank myself for the times I spoke my truth. I thank myself for the times I hunted for my truth.”
