Ode to the New Year
Welcome to a beautiful clean slate to play with! A fresh clean calendar to make our mark on! 365 brand new days to dance with!
I know not everyone feels that way, though, because we’re less than twelve hours into the new year and I’m already seeing emails asking how to ensure 2016 is better than that last awful year.
So here’s a sure fire way to guarantee your new year rocks the way you want it to:
Remember what there was to love about 2015.
Give a couple thanks for the things that went your way. Recall the times you laughed, and you loved, and you delighted with something life delivered you.
It could have been finding that random delicious brownie in the break room that one day.
It could have been when your item rang up on surprise sale at the checkout.
Or maybe when you smiled at the ginormous hole the neighbor’s dog dug after being left in the yard all day.
It doesn’t have to be big, and it’s okay if it was just one occurrence of lightness in your entire year.
But remembering how 2015 was good to you gives 2016 a chance to do even better.
It wasn’t all bad, I am sure of it. And dwelling on the good parts is the only vibration shift you need to let more good stuff in.
When we stop resisting what life seems to be delivering (I say “seem to be” because often our perception is just a little skewed from letting us see it as perfection) it gives Universe a chance to deliver the other things we would enthusiastically say yes to.
For my part, I’ve got a little love letter in my head for my new romance with 2016. I’ll share this “2016 Activation Script” for anyone who could use a shift in their new year vibe:
2016, I am ready to dance with you!
I really liked my last dance partner (2015 was good to me in many, many ways). But it’s your turn now and I am ready to rock this place with you at my side.
I’ve had my eye on you for a little while now, and I have to say, I like what I see.
You are my idea of a good time – fresh and fun and free! I can see the smile you’re already smiling and I can tell that you were born to boogie.
Let’s do this thing, my new friend, and let’s have a blast at it. Let’s laugh, and love, and relish in the joys of this amazing life!
Let’s be good to each other in the way that it was always meant to be.
We know how to do this. We were made for this time, this moment, this new day.
I have a good feeling about you, 2016. Let’s rock this party together!
I hope you’re as excited about the new year as I am, and I wish you all the best in the amazing days to come.
Happy New Year, everyone!
