Just one more and the butterfly watercolor postcard series will be done
I admit, without shame, I am one of those people who make new year resolutions. They are not about losing weight or exercising, but they are about what I want to become. My birthday is in January, so the new year has always represented a sort of rebirth to me.
It has been in the weeks preceding the new year, that I have had the most life changing experiences: got royally dumped for the first time, got my heart broken (a gazillion times), left home (twice), got engaged, got married... It is that mile mark, where the year presents itself as a clean slate and I am the master of my domain.
As I get older and feel the weight of my own mortality, where my whole life is no longer ahead of me, I am more committed to be true to my feelings and self. I am less preoccupied with other people's opinions. As a Capricorn/Dragon, stubbornness is a trait I unfortunately posses and I want to be kinder to those who love and care for me.
May the universe, G-d, Allah, Adonai, love, fraternity, Krishna, Ishtar, Inanna, Iemanja, Nature, or whoever you chose to worship or not, provide a year that's filled with love and kindness. May the plights be few and the tears scarce; may the love be plenty and health abundant.
I have learned with each one of you this year. I have gotten guidance, support, and kindness from this virtual women's circle that presented itself to me through this blog. And for that, thank you.
