A New Years Resolution
Here is my resolution: to quit the self-improvement club.
I’m done thinking that my ‘imperfections’ somehow make me less-than.
searching outside myself;
devoted to the self help genre;
constantly trying to get ‘somewhere’;
basing my personal and professional growth on trying to fill-the-gaps;
trying to create daily practices out of what I think I should be doing;
basing my decisions on what I think the expectations are;
believing that in so many ways I’m not enough.
I’m going to try on:
searching inside myself,
leaning into devotion;
savouring right now;
letting my growth be led by MY intuition and curiosities;
being awestruck, curious, engaged by life;
sitting with myself in silence for a little bit each day and checking out what comes up;
let my decisions be guided by what feels good and right on a soul level;
believing that I am worthy, I am divine.
