Happy New Year! Creating a blog has been a dream of mine for a long time. Well my friends, the day has finally arrived! Here we are. It’s the first day of 2016 and I’m already knocking stuff off my list of goals for the new year.
Speaking of lists. We all tend to make lists of what we want to bring into our lives. I know there are a lot of things I want to welcome into my life this year. Weight loss, a better financial standing, and more yoga practice to name a few. All of those things have something in common; Awareness.
We can’t change something if we aren’t aware of it. And we can’t welcome awareness if we’re not paying attention. In an effort to look at the new year from a different perspective, I offer up a challenge. Ask yourself the question “What can I let go of or release so that I can have what I want?”
For me, alcohol, while enjoyable, is getting in the way of all three things I want to achieve. Sabotaging weight loss, generally expensive, and debilitating the day after all the fun, my yoga mat has been very neglected this past year. So, for the month of January, I am laying off the sauce. No drinking. And maybe it’s something else entirely for you. What is getting in your way? How are you resisting the very thing you desire most? The answers will come from within. The awareness is there, you just have to pay attention.
