It’s a new year and with that comes the collective optimism associated with a clean slate. However, it’s widely known that most New Year’s resolutions don’t survive. Within weeks (if not days), the declarations fade in intensity as most of us will settle back into known routines.
For some, though they laugh it off, guilt sets in as they count it as personal failure. However, there is no failure if one makes the choice to begin again. To engage your inner fire and try again to do what’s best for you is always victorious. Beyond all resolutions, is one that matters most.

Much time is spent being overly concerned with perfect outcomes. For example, a bride engrossed with minute details may fail to enjoy the wedding. Or consider the stage parent obsessed with their child’s execution, that they miss the delight in the performance.
To strive for excellence is admirable. However, it becomes problematic when the pursuit of perfection counters the gift available in the moment. Like an athlete in the zone, full immersion is the key. Show up fully and trust magic to come along for the ride. It inevitably follows presence.

Unspoken truth can be incredibly heavy. When you bottle up what needs to be said, it takes a toll on well-being.
Whether it’s through professional help, a support group or a trusted friend, finding a safe space to unload relieves the burden of your silence.
Sharing your deepest truth is not only an act of courage, it is also one of self-care.

Some days, you’re more attuned than others. Sometimes, it’s a moment to moment affair. And in those times when attunement wavers, comes the experience of worry, doubt, fear, envy, insecurity, boredom, stagnancy, unhappiness and even hatred.
Consider each of these states nothing more than a craving for connection.
Whether in the form of connecting to another human or nature or one’s own creativity, there’s a recurrent call to commune with spirit. Time and time again, you will be urged to remember your Divinity by recognizing it where it lives inside and outside of you.

Through challenges, we test the limits of our courage and strength. However, we have a tendency to think of pain as the “best” teacher. What we are subconsciously telling ourselves is that, life must be hard if we are to learn anything.
While our painful experiences hold valuable lessons, pain does not have a monopoly on wisdom. The lessons you learn from joy can be just as transformative.
Pain inherently gets our attention, but with growing consciousness, one can remain attentive regardless of the state.
Remember, joy isn’t an empty reprieve. Wisdom resides there, too.

To feel empathy for another requires some level of connection.
Unfortunately, many of us look for that connection only at the level of identity. As a result, we can only extend “compassion” to those reminding us of who we used to be, who we are, and/or who we aspire to be.
We reserve it for those we consider equals. Individuals outside of those parameters receive pity at best and scorn at worst.
True compassion arises from the level of the soul. What is recognized is the shared humanity, not shared identity.

What feels like impending doom, is potential making an appearance. With a change in perspective, what initially set you reeling can be strangely liberating.
Because you are no longer tied to that one thing happening in one particular way, you’ve entered a state of limitless possibility

Most of us try to do and say the so-called right things. We do our best to “fit in” as society often asks of us because on the surface, it appears to be the simplest route.
But “going with the flow” isn’t easygoing when the flow has no actual fluidity. External dictates are rigid and leave little to no room for individual expression.
We think we want to “fit in” but what we really crave is acceptance. The difference is that the latter allows for the truest expression of yourself.
We want to belong but we want to do so as we are. Beware anything that asks differently of you. The cost of conformity is too high.
