Popcorn for the Soul – New Year Wiser You

New Year Wiser You

Ha ha ha! And here it is! Much awaited January! So many freaking expectations from that one little month, I sometimes wonder if it is going to get fed up and disguise itself as say April or something more prosaic:-)! Just kidding, folks…

Imagine the amount of responsibility, promises, resolutions put on the shoulder of that one little month…It’s too much! Wouldn’t you agree?

I stopped putting all my expectations on January a while ago, and I cannot tell you how much I gained in the process! Oh, and I also lost! Big time! But it was a good kind of loss… you know the one that when give, you feel lighter, energised and full of Shakti!

You see, most people think that just setting up resolutions and intentions will be enough to help them get to where they hope to get.

Wroooong! Why? Because that date means nothing if your mindset, your habits, your expectations of yourself have not shifted.

Which brings me to a very important point – for things to shift, we must shift the way we do things, the way we show up in the world.

Wanting, hoping, intending, thinking positive just isn’t enough.
And not even The Holy Month of January will be able to help you if you are still vibrating the same old crap.

Let’s be honest… How many times did you promise yourself that you’ll go on a diet come January, you’ll stop drinking, you’ll get on a juice cleanse, fitness programme, yoga, meditation, and you got so tired of being so hard on yourself that after a few weeks you went back to our old habits, and started the vicious circle of complaining, judging, beating yourself up, being miserable and disappointed.

All of these resolutions work to a point, but in order for them to give you long-lasting satisfaction and support your transformation, you need to show up for them differently! Just deciding isn’t enough!

And I just to be clear…I don’t propose anarchy here, it’s just that I find it so sad seeing people having artificially pumped up confidence, confidence on steroids, that gets deflated at the first obstacle.

New habits won’t last if they are not in line with what you personally need. And get to know yourself better, get to work on your inner world, so that you are in tune with our needs. So that you can start when you are ready and not when collective preaching and hysteria tell you to start!

So how about this. Stop buying into collective hysteria. Stop following the (m)asses. Surround yourself with the wise crowd. Join the elite. Join the people who lead their own lives, instead of following other people’s version of how life should be lived. You wanna be ahead of the game?! Be wise! Wise is the new you.

A month is a month. Forget all about past references to January and treat is as you would any other month in the year when you felt superb! When you were fully in your power. When everything you touched turned to cold, when you were the darling of the universe.

Forget about to do lists, resolutions, promises. Forget about anything that you know that will or won’t happen, and instead, you allow yourself to enjoy the month. Ease into it. Ease into life. Ease into the year! Let life love you! Let year adore you! Let it happen for you!

And don’t have a happy year! It will make you miserable. Have meaningful year. Have a year that matters, a year that’s true, a year that’s honest, a year that’s direct. A year in which you will stay true to what you believe in, a year in which you won’t sell yourself cheap, a year full of authenticity and integrity. A year that means something!

Go on, dare to make the time you spend on his Earth mean something! Stop following the masses and start following you.

Don’t put up with anything that doesn’t add value to your life!

And remember to hustle gently!

Sending you meaningful vibes,
Lidija
