New Year, New Intention

Last year, my intention was to “be present”.  It was hard to work at it.  It is so easy to let my mind wander to the “what should I have done” and the “what if this happens” and all the little things that need attention at some point.  I did manage to improve my focus, and keep my mind and attention on the here and now.  It made some of the highlights of the year like the Plane Pull for Sight and the TWECS project much more rewarding.

This year, I’ve decided that my intention will be the quote that has guided my life for the past 13 years.

All paths are the same, leading nowhere.
Therefore follow the path with heart.
~ Carlos Castaneda

I wrote about how I discovered this quote back in a 2012 blog post.  Often in my head I shorten it to “follow the path with heart” or “choose the path with heart”.

While this has been in my mind and heart for so long, I’m going to spend this year truly working at finding what is my path with heart.  I realized in the second half of last year that the pressures of every day life and the influence of the world around me has made me lose my way.  After the volunteer trip to Costa Rica in November (which I still have to make a blog post about), I really feel the need to reevaluate my life’s path.

The first step in this journey is a class I started yesterday called ” Yoga for Radical Self Love and Complete Acceptance”.  I struggle a lot with just being okay with myself.  I’ve spent so much time comparing myself to others, and thinking that I’m not good enough.  So, my path starts with accepting myself.

Birthing a New Age  Birthing a New Age explanation

While we introduced ourselves, we drew a card from the Work Your Light oracle card deck.  I picked Birthing a New Age.  After reading the description, I feel like this is an affirmation of my intention.  Finding my path with heart may not be easy, but it’s what I need to do to find fulfillment.  My path may not be anything that I expected it to be, but I need to be open to following it.  This year feels like it will be a period of transition in my personal life, and I need to accept whatever that will be.

I’m looking forward to what this year will bring.
