Are you hoping to have more joy and intention in the new year? I plan to do just that with a year of magic.
This is my year of magic and rhythm. I’ve long had the motto of BALANCE. But lately, I’ve reshaped my concept of what balance is. Instead of being like a scale, where there’s the “right” amount of each thing happening at any given time, true balance is a cycle. It’s the right amount of what is appropriate for “now”. Then, it’s the right amount of the next thing that is appropriate for the next “now”.
And it’s not a reactive way of being, because we know that life is cyclical in nature. When we acknowledge the phases of the cycle and understand its cues, we can anticipate and act accordingly.
So, my intention for this new year is to dive into the cycles and rhythms of life. I will grow my knowledge, awareness, and respect for the natural flow of my body, the natural world, even of humanity.
This year I chose a Word of the Year and the word I chose is MAGIC. I believe that when a person is in balance with the natural cycles already in place, when she flows in sync with everything within and around her, she is practicing what appears as magic. That’s what I’m aiming for this year.
But also, I want to move about the world with a sense of awe and wonder. I want to see marvels everywhere I look. And I want my family to do the same. I want our home to be filled with magic in that sense as well.
This will be my year of magic.
