Apparently it’s been 2 months since I last did a blogpost on here and whilst I haven’t been short of ideas for the blog, it’s making the time that’s been the tricky one. I would love to firstly wish you all a very Happy New Year and I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too.
Have you made any New years resolutions? Do you always make resolutions or is it not really your thing? I wouldn’t say that I really make new years resolutions but I do tell myself things I would like to achieve in the year.
In 2015: I knew I wanted my boyfriend and I to take our first holiday together, we had been together for 8 years and so I thought it was about time and I am pleased to report that we did just that and we took off to Miami in the September of that year.
In 2016: I set to out to really look at myself and the patterns of my personality that weren’t benefiting me and were actually quite detrimental to my wellbeing. I also wanted to learn even more about spirituality this included becoming more knowledgeable and more connected with my angels. I came to understand the power of manifestation (something I ignorantly ignored for years before because of fear) and how giving my worries to God would clear my mind to receive his help and guidance. I wanted to start a blog that would give me an outlet for my Spiritual learnings and though I am still trying to get the hang of running two blogs, i’m glad I made it happen. I’m grateful to God, my angles, myself and all the people who encouraged me along the way of 2016 to make happen what I set my mind to. Only writing this now do I see just how well i’ve done in achieving what I set out for and I know that may sound like i’m full of myself but I believe its good, no, important and also necessary that we give ourselves a pat on the back sometimes.
For 2017: I have few things that I would like to work on. Though 2016 was very positive and promising for the spiritual progress I made, towards the end of the year there was a huge amount going on with family illness and unexpected changes that all seemed to happen at the same time over a course of a few months. All of this put me a little out of balance and now Christmas is over and January is here, I feel more energised and refreshed to pick things up again. I hope to continue working on myself and my connection to God, Jesus and the Angels, in fact I am contemplating taking on The Doreen Virtue Angel course or Fairy course. I want to continue what I started in 2016 with getting into yoga, I lost track of it for a little bit but when I was doing it, I felt great and a lot more relaxed. Another thing that I started in 2016 that I would like to continue into 2017 is cutting down my meat and dairy intake. I don’t want to put a label on this just yet but i’m working on it. I am finding there are many meal options that don’t have to include meat. Cutting out dairy is a little harder for me, I love ice cream, cheese, milkshakes and cereal so so much, so one step at a time.
I am also planning on donating more to charity’s that I believe in, even if it is just five pounds a month, it’s something I feel I need to do. I also would like to learn about floral arrangements, I imagine I would enjoy the creativity of it. On a more personal level, I would like to work on how guilty I so often feel, I find myself doing things for others through feelings of guilt sometimes and that’s not good or fair on me or the other person. I will end up only resenting myself and those around me and I do not want that. I also find myself taking on a lot more responsibility for things that I do not need to, resulting in me not living my life to the potential that I could. Again, I believe this comes from deep rooted guilt issues. So for now, that is all I can think of and I hope this time next year I will be blessed enough to say I achieved what I set out to achieve.
On a final note: I believe that we have a responsibility as human kind to rise above all the darkness and ego that tries to rule this world by becoming even more compassionate towards others, even less judgmental and to show more love and kindness. Be grateful for every small blessing that we encounter, smile at strangers, hell, hold doors open for those you will unlikely ever see again. Pray for anyone you believe may need it and come up with more solutions rather then just speaking about problems. Love comes more naturally and takes far less energy, remember that.
Love and light,
