Take time to reflect on your goals and efforts over the past year. What you have accomplished may not have a lot to do with what was on your list. But you still got a lot done and moved the ball forward. Don’t be down or upset about that. You really had a lot of little successes.
Sometimes we make a plan, in our head or on paper, for what we want to do in the coming year. But as life moves through the ethereal, what generally happens are situations to advance our soul’s mission, to learn lessons and pay/redeem karma. Unexpected things often pop up and we’re forced to divert attention from what we thought we were going to do over the coming months of a new year. Leaving us feeling as if we failed or fell short of our goals.
But if you take a step back and look at all you’ve been through, you will see just how much you’ve done and how much you’ve accomplished in facing those challenges and choices. Your surrounded by success, even if you don’t realize it. All those little triumphs in handling this issue, resolving that problem, changing that situation have culminated in a great triumph over the course of the past year.
Now is not the time to be down or fill yourself with doubt. You’re in the seat of flowing abundance that is moving your energy forward to where you need to be for the coming New Year. Walk into that new energy with pride, you’ve earned it. Disregard the nay-sayers who want to put you down or diminish what you’ve been through. You’re still here. You’re not defeated.
Others may not see that you’re fighting the good fight, healing from old wounds and evolving as you walk forward on your path. But they really don’t have to acknowledge how far you’ve come. This is your life to lead, not theirs. This isn’t your life according to them. You don’t need their approval to be who you are. Keep moving and don’t let others hold you back in the muck of yesterday (or decades past). Keep your faith in yourself and the Divine in your life. Your future looks brighter than ever.
