It's a new year and a chance to look, as always, at what old patterns I want to let go and what new ideas/patterns/changes I want to embrace.
Dealing with my ex-husband over the holidays, I realized I definitely want to let go of the last of the fear based thinking/reacting that still lingers in some of our interactions.
Dealing with my daughter, I am so ready to embrace this new friendship and mutual respect between us. I adore the woman she has become!
Dealing with my son, I'm ready to embrace his growing independence from me as he settles more and more into his group home.
As for New Year's resolutions....my tendency is to want safety above all else. The most useful resolution, then, might be to do something new every week. It might be try a new way to cook something or a new place to go or a new way to interact with others or....? The key is just to try new things and thereby expand my comfort zone one a continuous basis.
How about you? What changes are you making? Any resolutions to share?
Sending blessings and safe and gentle (((((((hugs))))))),
