I could tell you I have 100 goals
That I have set myself new challenges.
That I am full of ambition
That I want to be of service in a multitude of ways.
That I am ready to be a new me.
But I can’t. I haven’t. I don’t. I am not.
There’s no need.
There’s nothing wrong with me.
There’s nothing I need to prove.
My prayer, intention and motivation
Is only love.
I am love.
So I’ll let my heart do the talking.
I’ll let my love speak for itself.
I’ll remind myself that the simple moments
Are what make each day extraordinary
That my body, my life – my human life
Is the biggest miracle that ever was
And my deepest dreams come true
Are a gift to myself
And my gift to the world.
So as I sit with every feeling
The ones that sting my eyes
And the ones that set my soul on fire
I won’t wait to feel fully alive.
I am alive now
With my eyes and arms and heart wide open.
I am here.
Happy New Year.
