But first things first. First, figuring what it is that you want, crave, need, why you want it and how (if!) that thing aligns with your hearts truth is step numero uno. A step not to be taken lightly for sure. Listening when your heart speaks louder than your head, when that little voice I like to call your light whispers to you. Usually it's the same whisper, over and over and over...and if it scares you, so much so that you don't listen, and you push it away, that same gentle voice could quite possibly become a very loud yell.
It's usually fear that causes us to ignore that whisper. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of looking like a crazy person to others. Fear of not following the 'normal', structured path that's already paved and waiting for you.
What the last few months has taught me is that the only thing we should really fear, is ourselves, when we choose not to listen to that voice, to our light. Because living should be done wholeheartedly, with vigor, with intention and bursting with love and happiness. Because really, why the hell not? What's the alternative? Yeah, I don't want to think about that either.
When we listen to that internal voice above all others, we are choosing happiness and when we choose happiness, our light shines bright and we serve the world. We write our poem.
So here's to your light, your desire, your action, your life. Here's to a new year.
As is your desire, so is your will.
As is your will, so is your deed.
As is your deed,
So is your destiny.
