I want to let go of the fear of scaring people away with my ideas, voice, opinions, talents. I used to embrace leadership, but when the spotlight shined on my faults, I backed away. This year I will step up, be awesome, adjust when needed, and change the little world I inhabit for the better. I will lead by example and by choice.
I want to let go of waiting.
I want to let go of WAITING. Through my entire life (71 years) I have felt I must wait until the time was just right to live the life I wanted, the life I deserve. When I was a child, I of course, had to WAIT until I grew up! Then, as an adult, I Waited until my children were grown. Art classes? WAIT until I could afford them Writing? WAIT until I have time. Meanwhile, my life is slipping by. I must stop WAITING and LIVE!
I want to let go of chasing "success"
I want to let go of chasing "success". I want to live my life the way that I want to, create what I want to and if success at anything follows (or surrounds) this – so be it. I'm tired of trying to create artwork/workshops that I think people will consider "successful". So there stress – take THAT!
Broken is still whole, still beautiful; it simply occupies a new space, in a different shape.
I want to create so much passion and purpose and love in myself, that it spills over and creates a safe, glowing space for others so they can find their own passion and purpose and love, and know they're completely supported in that. Then they can see that they, too, are whole and beautiful, even if they're broken, and bloody, and raw in their new shape.
