"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end". Semisonic
I love quoting this line from a song from my past. Sometimes in order to move on , we must leave something behind.
As this is the last day of 2016 I thought I would share an exercise on setting intentions that I did this morning. Simple yet thought provoking and insightful. Feel free to grab a piece of paper and something to write with if you wish.
The key here is to NOT think too much - the first thing that pops into your mind is there for a reason. Get curious about it and don't judge it or try to make sense of it. Just notice it.
First - think of something you would like to leave behind from 2016 - it could be a relationship, a habit, a feeling etc.
Then, think of something you would like to keep from this past year -again could be a feeling, relationship, perhaps a new and useful habit.
Finally, think of something you would like to add or have more of in 2017.
I am intrigued by what came up for me and still mulling it over. That is the point - to get you thinking.
I wish you a Happy New Year and Happy New Beginnings!
