It was, like so many things in this time and space, laborious.
In my own frustration, I actually said out loud, "What I really need is some time and space to HEAL!"
and there it was...my word.
I want to make 2016 a year of conscious healing...
Healing my body - with good food and good exercise and time spent working on making myself healthy. I have not been as good to myself as I needed to be in 2015...its time to take responsibility for it and make some changes.
Healing my fractured spiritual life - with stillness and purposeful seeking of God.
Healing my artistic soul - I've scrambled and scraped and stolen time to accomplish creative time in 2015. I want spending time being creative to be something I do with purpose in 2016...not a haphazard, thrown together moment, but something that involves my whole focus.
Healing my relationships. I was very very fortunate to go on a trip this last summer that was healing in every possible way and it started a longing in me for more of it...I have so much more of this to do. More kindness to show myself and others. More grace to extend to myself and others. I have taken enough nonsense this last year and I want to really focus on my boundaries and building relationships that matter deeply and are healthy.
So here's to 2016 and to healing in a big way...
