Your New Year

Introduced: December 30 2012

We're welcoming the New Year by naming our resolutions -- from simplifying our lives (well, maybe not as simplified as this photo suggests...) to learning Italian to cleaning out our inbox...

Dialogue on Your New Year
242:

I resolve to laugh more. If anyone knows of good books or good movies that made you laugh, let me know.

135:

I am looking for a totally new beginning in 2013. I have a very empty nest -- children happily ensconced in productive lives, an newly-ex husband with whom I am amicable, and a change from full-time work to consulting. My challenge will be to see the possibilities and choose the right ones to pursue.

 

Note from IWD: Speaking of new beginnings – a link to an interesting blog was sent in by an IWD member. The blog is authored by Natasha Richardson and includes ten new ways of thinking that “will help you create your new reality and a new beginning in your life." (If you want more of this line of thinking, use this link to read suggested visualization to help reinforce your desire to re-invent. http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/Rosewood3.html

 

Here are ten tips for starting over:

 

1. Commit and the Universe commits with you. Decide right now that this is a new beginning. Setting your intention on having what you really want in your life this year is the first step.

 

2. Clarify. Get clear about what you want, not what you don’t want. What we observe and focus on expands in our experience.

 

3. Act as if. Get into the feelings of success, love, great health, abundance and peace. Choose to be at peace with success. Go about your day visualizing that what you desire already exists.

 

4. Be grateful. Gratitude is the foundation of abundance. Say Thank you, thank you, thank you for what has already manifested and the good that is to come.

 

5. Clean out your garbage. Forgive, release, let go of any persons, things or thoughts that are not positive, do not feed you or support your happiness. You are flying upwards and forwards. Don’t allow any drag to bring you down.

 

6. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Embrace the adventure of life. Take a risk. Do things that scare you. Do things “in spite of.” Do things that you always put off. Then reward yourself for finally having done it.

 

7. Select a mentor/supporter. Enroll someone who truly wants you to be successful and who will not let you give up on yourself or your dream when you want to.

 

8. Ask your angels. We all have support from spirit guides, departed loved ones and angels. Ask them to bring you what you need, want, desire. Put in your order with the Universe. Do what is within your power and surrender the rest to those higher beings. Then just wait for divinely guided outcomes.

 

9. Change your beliefs. You can tell what your beliefs are by the results in your life. If you are not getting the results you want, choose a belief that does support you, your perception and then your reality. It’s your script and your movie. Your choice.

 

10. Remind yourself of your successes. Stand in front of your mirror every morning and tell your reflection just how wonderful, intelligent, good-looking and abundant you are...Verbally list all the things of which you are proud. As a spark of a higher power--whichever name you have for that--and star in your own movie, you are an Oscar winner! (Note from IWD -- this refers to the visuialization mentioned with the link above.)

Each day, tackle one thing that will move my life forward.

I'm not talking about general maintenance, like the weekly cleaning or grocery shopping. I mean, do something that I've been meaning to do for months or years, (like reorganizing a closet or clearing out unnecessary storage from the basement), or making a change in my life (like starting a work-out routine or changing my diet or taking pen to paper to set some goals).

I did this last year and it only lasted for about a month and a half, but it felt so good to be getting things done and making positive changes. The trick to keeping up with it is to find find some things that don't take much time... that way you can keep going even when you're schedule is jam packed.

186:

While I may hope to lose weight, clear clutter, get organized, and manage money better, my New Year's resolution this year is to send more thank-you notes -- old-fashioned, handwritten thank you notes. Emails are more prompt and expedient acknowledgements, but there's something more personal about handwritten notes. And, so, for what it's worth, that's one of the small pieces of life's puzzle that I'm going to try harder to work on this year. A small, manageable, meaningful little goal, one note at a time. Recognizing not just presents, but kind gestures, thoughtfulness, friendships ... of course then there's the fun of shopping for fun stationery, cards, commemorative stamps, stickers and different-colored pens as an extra incentive to stay with my resolution..
