January 1, 2010 (San Diego)--Are you ready for a new year?
As you prepare to enter a new year, you may find yourself consciously or subconsciously reviewing this past year in particular and your life in general. This potent time of transition beckons you tune in to who, what and where you are.
Here's the tip. Start by making a commitment to not judge yourself! Judging impairs your ability to see what's really happening in your life. Begin your review by looking first for what went right this year -- small, big, whatever. Keep looking. If you have trouble with this, ask someone who loves you to help out. Celebrate yourself! Success breeds success.
Now, take a breath and take a look at what went wrong. Look for patterns and unacknowledged needs. See what you're ready to take responsibility for without shaming or blaming yourself or others.
Be sure to give yourself time to dream. Allow yourself to imagine what you most want in life. Listen carefully for what's calling you. Be gentle. You need a new vision before you can create a new reality. Happy New Year!
