What does another New Year’s mean?

  1. It means that I can disregard all the junk food that I ate last year and start with a clean slate.
  2. I can watch When Harry Met Sally and count my blessings that I have a wonderful spouse.
  3. It means I have to complete ALL of the projects that I neglected or left unfinished plus create new projects to leave uncompleted for next year!
  4. I have an excuse to drink sparkling wine and stay up late to sing a song that I’m not sure I understand.
  5. I can make semi-firm promises to myself that I may or may not keep.
  6. I can write checks and letters for at least a month with the wrong year on them.
  7. I’ll be saying, “Where did that year go?”
  8. I can pity those people in Times Square who actually choose to experience the human to Sardine can process.
  9. I can try to justify my need for juggling multiple paper calendars when all I need is the ONE on my smartphone.
  10. I have to hurry up my tax preparation so I can file an extension to get even more time.
  11. I can practice procrastination to the point of being an art form!
  12. Make re-solutions to old habits.
  13. Join a health club for a week and bitch about my weight the remaining 51 weeks.
  14. Laugh as much as you can and try not to be so serious.

Just Let It Go!

It’s what you tell yourself when a thought or emotion comes up when meditating: “Just let it go!” Sure, saying it and the actuality of doing it is different but, it becomes reality, the more you do it. Meditation and the acknowledgement of letting go is a practice, and it is the benefit of  that practice that comes with the practice. So often in our lives, we are asked to let go, be it at the loss of a loved one, the breaking of a promise,  an unkind act, the releasing of a dream, resentment or guilt, or some deep seeded emotion or thought.  

Letting go takes practice, discipline, and intuition.  It takes timing. Knowing  what to keep and what to release  sometimes take a leap of faith into the unknown. It requires bravery and will.

In this New Year, whether you hope to shed pounds, bad habits, clutter in your life, or just the old of 2011, remember to let go of what you don’t need or just doesn’t benefit you. That’s what I’m hoping to do.

Happy New Year!
