I want to let go of lying. The half-truths that smother me, the promises I don't keep, the commitments I make and then deny through a lie. Why do I play this game and come to loathe myself? I will reflect on this terrible pattern in the new year, welcome it home and then kick it out the door. Done with the lies!
Let go of my poverty mentality.
I need to let go of my poverty mentality: the feeling that I am less than…that I am not enough…that I am missing something…that I am needing to be more…have more…do more. This new year, I want to allow myself to take care of my physical and mental health and wellness. I want to love myself unconditionally.
Exploring what my body can do.
Not long ago I read about a young ballerina who had just written a young adult book about being a ballerina. When asked why she wanted to write after spending her life perfecting her dance, she said that she had up to now spent her life in her body. Now she wanted to spend it more in her mind.
That comment stopped me in my tracks.
After spending 51 years living mostly in my brain, I am loving exploring what my body can do–and how much of my brain thinks it is doing is actually driven by how my body experiences life.
So I'm letting go of the idea that my brain is driving the bus, and creating a greater awareness of how the physical and mental interact to create what I consider to be reality. This is already so cool I can hardly stand it. Can't wait to see where it goes.
What is your answer to this question: What do you want to let go of, and what do you want to create in 2012?
