There isn’t anything much better than the feeling of a clean slate. That’s what the New Year provides.

I have long given up on resolutions — mostly because I write and create “goals” all year long. I’m someone who is always trying to change myself, my intentions, my situation. I’m someone who spends life searching for the next greatest XY and Z.

This year, I’m hoping to take all of that information, all of that knowledge that I’ve acquired over the years and APPLY IT. Here. There. Everywhere. I even have a little — well, huge — project that I”m working on that is related.

That’s it … whether it be meditation, yoga, writing, quality time with the kids, house projects … I’m done (sort of)  researching and planning and this year it’s just going to happen without drama, without reservation, without doubt, without insecurities. I will do it all with intention and so long as I do it with intention, it will be right for me.

In the meantime, I found this lovely little meditation to take into this lovely little New Year:

Sit quietly — be still.

Breathe.

Breathe in I have Arrived.

Breathe out I am Home.

I have Arrived.

I am home.

For once, I feel like it may be true.

Happy 2012!
