A New Year. A New Decade.

As we slip into a new decade, I ask myself. Where will I be in the next 10 years? I implore you to ask yourself the same question. Where will YOU be in the next 10 years?

If you’re like me, you focus on yearly progress- Measuring success and Failure by the convention of time. How much have I done this year? Did I accomplish my goals in the time I allocated for those goals? Did I do enough every month? Every day? Every hour?

I have not taken as much time as I would like for reflective-self-awareness. You know the kind that is suppose to give you deep intuitive insight. Thank God the New Year forces it upon me, once again.

Using hindsight to follow my path back into the labyrinth, I am in deep amazement at the entire decade of learning. I spent so much time trying to be someone else that I neglected to find the person I am. I became anesthetized by the version of me that was real and focused on managing the expectation of others, being what they needed to feel comfortable. Sometimes stuck in the maze so long, I forgot what was projection and what was real.

What I learned in the last decade did culminate to certain purification in 2010. The thread of circumstance allowed me to shed a lot. I let go of the things and people I didn’t need. To be honest, I am deeply grateful for that purging of vital lies and soothing mistruths that kept me from my internal intelligence. Yes, 2010 was a challenging year- and I am thankful for every second of it

I’m glad to share this with you, I hope you to look back into your decade with the same self-reflective-awareness. I am sure you already have dissected the year past, it’s hard not to. I hope you find the gems of wisdom from your former self and a bright new hope to join with the person you hope to be.

I have intention for the next 10 years. I am not charting an exact path. I am looking at what is highly important. Intention is possibly the most powerful gift we have. If we have clear vision of our values, beliefs and how we want to live- it’s highly likely we’ll get there. Most of us are familiar with the spiritual rhetoric of NOW or PRESENT- we forget there is no NOW. There is the moment before and the moment after.

So here is to the moments to come. My intention for all of us is to achieve our highest self.

Love and Peace.
