Wow! Another year, another me and maybe another new you! The new year gives us the opportunity, along with the rest of the world, to re-create Who We Really Are, and it's in the massive shift of consciousness of this fresh beginning that we are afforded a chance to hit our own Re-Set button. That is different for every person but the most important aspect is to realize that we are the only ones that can decide what our new vision is for ourselves. My mother Lillian would always point out to me that only I know my body-no doctor or medical professional could get it 100% right. My gut, my instinct was what I needed to shut up and listen to. The seven minutes I pay the doctor for could never get it exactly right. She greatly encouraged exaggerating symptoms to be seen quicker when I knew that something was wrong in my body. And in this current day of having to wait an average of 55 days to see my Primary Care Physician, I'd saw she was a woman WAY ahead of her time when it came to health care!
Most of us look to our physical health at the first of the year for resolutions-I'll lose that last 10, 20 pounds, I'll walk more, I'll use the dusty gym equipment in the basement/garage, whatever it is for us. But isn't our focus on the physcial a call from our spiritual side to take care of this incredible vessel we've been given while walking on this earth? Because as we take care of the physical, in some mystical way, we're taking care of our bigger spiritual selves and we intrinsically know this. 'What you focus on expands' becomes our mantra in the physical with all hopes of it bleeding into the emotional contentment and enjoyment of our souls.
So, what are you REALLY wanting to accomplish this year when you look at your physical body? What spiritual, bigger way of living your life do you want to see happen for 2012? This new year gives great hope to and support of our greatest dreams for ourselves.
The funniest aspect is that we always have the chance to make those changes whether or not it's the first of the year. We can hit the Re-Set Button at anytime we choose: yearly, monthly, daily and by minute. It's your choice to decide how you will live your best life for you. And no one outside of you can tell you what that needs to be-so go within, for if you do not go within, you go without.
