A New Year!
I’m not one to make resolutions, really, but last year was the first that I set a theme for the forthcoming 365-day trip around the sun: “Letting Go”. And whoa, boy, did I. Without getting into details, I let go of a lot in 2009, and I do think that I’m growing and learning because of my adherence to my self-imposed theme. I think “letting go” worked rather well for me. I’m a fully independent, full-time dancer and performer… and my Dad finally came around from his “you need a real” job attitude and now brags to his friends that I own my own business. (How adorable is that?)
So, what’s this year’s theme, you ask? Frankly, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s forgiveness, compassion, gratitude, growth… Well, all of those things are important, but one idea prevails: Trusting my gut and my intuition. Because my innards seem to know what’s better for me than my frontal lobe does. Trusting my gut also means trusting myself. Why is trusting your own self so damn hard, and why is it when we do, we feel so free and liberated, but we were so scared to take the leap?
2009 helped me realize the strength in myself and my abilities… In 2010 I aim to continue my journey.
How will this year help you?
Here are a few thoughts to get you started:
