When it comes to kicking off 2013, are you a Gentle Ginny or a Jump-In Josephine?
Are you easing into the year through reflection and recapitulation, or are you being called to action, eager to get out there and make your mark?
My social media circles are overflowing with beautiful, thoughtfully chosen words and intentions for the year to come. As someone who deeply believes we can create the life we desire, I love witnessing this interest in living deliberately.
Among this energy of hope and forward movement, I am also detecting hints of trepidation, of feeling overwhelmed or fearful of being left behind.
What if I don’t have a word yet? What if I have no clue what I want to do this year? What if I’m not even done wrapping my head around 2012?
Comparison can be a real buzzkill.
Though we may find new year motivation in others, there’s no need to keep up with them if we don’t want to.
We each have our transition pace. Our job is to figure out what feels good and right to us, and honor it.
No one’s keeping score.
The new year is in its promising infancy. If you feel an urge to jump in with both feet and make your mark, then YES, do it! If you feel called to slow down and delve inward, then by all means, do that.
Either way it’s your path into 2013. Claim it, and make this year yours.
