What if 2022 was going to be the year that you created something amazing? The year you finally got there? The year you absolutely nailed that thing? Despite or because of, the perceived disaster you experienced in 2021, 2020, or even years earlier… and you just didn’t know it yet?
Sometimes a crystal ball would be so handy to see what the future holds.
What would you try if you knew you couldn’t fail? What’s stopping you from starting that today?
We never know why a lot of things happen in our lives, or what’s going to happen next. We can only work with the information and the tools we have, at any given moment. Every choice we make directly impacts and contributes to the outcome.
Sometimes this feels empowering, other times it can be terrifying.
Each decision determines what happens next and ultimately choice by choice, minute by minute we design our future.
Sometimes we plead to the Universe to let us know what the best choice is for our decision at hand. We implore for a sign to confirm that our next move is the one that will give us the best ultimate outcome.
Sometimes it is so hard to be in a space where we feel like everything is riding on the outcome and we are paralysed by the choice we face, not knowing what to do.
Sometimes we know what we need to do, but for so many reasons, we can’t or don’t bring ourselves to do it.
Sometimes in life there is so much noise, mentally or physically, and we cry out loud, ‘I can’t hear myself think!’.
Sometimes the silence is deafening and we would do anything to hear a loved one tell us we matter, we are enough and we are not alone.
We only ever see what we call reality through our own eyes.
Sometimes it is so hard, when we are sure of what we see, to be open and accepting of other people’s points of view – without judgement. Perception is belief – for us and for everyone else around us.
Sometimes it feels impossible to see that ours is not the only way and ours is a way.
Every minute of every day brings with it permission to do something different, to make different or better choices, to be compassionate and permission to start again.
Every minute of every day we get to take out a clean sheet of paper and create a new picture. We own the page and we get to choose what we will design and what colours we will use.
Sometimes we make decisions about our picture based on what other people will like, what will bring them the most joy and what will help them become the amazing people that we see they are.
Sometimes we create our picture forgetting about or ignoring what makes us happy, feel alive, and what brings us closer to our own life’s purpose.
Sometimes it’s so hard to find a balance between doing the right thing and letting go.
2022 holds much in store for each one of us. There are adventures waiting to happen, lifelong connections to be formed, strengthened and built upon and opportunities waiting for those that are open to them.
It will come with challenges, some that will make us question everything we thought we knew. These will also make us stronger, more resilient, and better equipped to handle the next challenge that comes along. We don’t know when these moments will come … but we know they will.
This year holds 525,600 minutes. That’s not a lot of minutes when they go by as fast as they do.
Can we be conscious to make them count and not waste time counting them?
As you step into 2022, I have these wishes for you.
I wish you abundance and prosperity.
I wish you love and compassion.
I wish you many adventures and with each adventure, I wish for you to get in touch with the amazing and wonderful person you really are and a little closer to finding out the reason you are here.
Sometimes it’s not the song that makes you emotional but the people that come to mind when you hear it.
Dalya xx 💙
