Show me a hundred people and I bet I can show you 95 of them or so who will say 2016 has been a rough one. It came with its blessings and gifts, of course, but it also brought a seemingly higher proportion of loss, tragedy, difficulties, and pain than your average year. At times, it’s been brutal. And it’s ending.
I am ready to kiss this year good-bye.
I am ready to make some new commitments and strengthen the ones I have in place.
I am ready to be more, have more and feel more of what I want to feel.
I’ve decided. I want this brand new, shining year ahead to be My Year of More.
What about you?
There is much to kiss goodbye to as we wrap up this year.
And so much to experience more of.
I’m done with New Year’s Resolutions that feel forceful, like what I should be wanting or doing. Research shows us, they don’t work.
I’m done with New Year’s Resolutions that come from anywhere outside of me.
I’m actually done with the term “New Year’s Resolutions” altogether. I’m tapping into something different this year. My own, innate, personalized More-Core.
You have one, too. Deep within you, there lives a blueprint of what you truly desire, a solid and totally-unique, totally-YOURS, set of desires that point you in the direction of More.
You don’t have to search for it. It’s already there. You just have to turn to it.
Here’s how to access your More-Core. Grab a pen and paper. Answer these questions:
- What feelings do I want to feel more of?
- What experiences would support me in cultivating more of these feelings?
- What activities, choices, practices or people would support me in cultivating more of these feelings?
- What would I need less of, in order to create space for more?
And then, it begins. Once you get clear about what you want, you can’t unknow it.
Here are two misconceptions about wanting more that I come across often…
- If I want more, it means I am dissatisfied with what I have, and what I have is enough.
- It’s greedy, ungrateful or selfish to want more. I should concentrate on being content, instead.
It is possible to be grateful and content while wanting more. In fact, it’s imperative to our well-being to acknowledge and tend to our desires. Desire is fuel. Desire is guidance for your journey. Desire is data. And wanting more does not diminish gratitude! It’s quite possible (and a yummy place to live!) to be in both desire and gratitude. One does not cancel out the other. In fact, it’s our denying our desires that gets us into trouble.
You can love your life and want more. (I blogged about this very thing last year.)
Go on, want MORE. I dare you.
Find a buddy, a coach, a group, for accountability, for support, for love as you manifest MORE this year.
You do not have to be anything you aren’t. This isn’t about becoming someone else.
Let 2017 be the year you become MORE of who you are, the year you grace the world with MORE of what you are here to express, and experience MORE of what it is you want.
What do you say?
Ready for more? I know I am.
