Is everyone acclimating to 2015? I totally become giddy when it comes to the New Year. I can easily allow my mind to fly away with all the possibilities of 2015 - opportunities, travel, meeting new people, family adventures, faith and maybe even lasting love.
I'm in a transitioning period in my life - ah! Aren't we always in a continued transformative state? In biology we call it adaptation. Our biological bodies are in a continued state of transformation, learning to adapt to the environment.
I approached this year differently with a particular frame of mind. During the past few months my focus has been on the things I want to bring into by life and the type of people I want to surround myself with. I've always had my hand in several cookie jars but I'm starting to effortlessly narrow down my options. Since this shift, opportunities have surfaced - opportunities to grow as a parent, an individual, as a lover and a friend. Through this new-found perspective I notice myself acting upon these changes. As a result of my actions, I've become more disciplined, more patient, kinder to myself and those around me.
The biggest commitment I have taken in is becoming celibate until I'm married. It's been months since I've taken this vow and I've seen so many blessings because of it. I know, I know, I'm 29 - not possible, right? It totally is! During this process, I've cultivated a better understanding of the companion I want in my life. That companion is me!
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a mate as my "other half". However, I must be whole initially in order to give my half, or else my potential mate will get whatever fraction I'm willing to give - which is not fair to either party.
These new commitments have shifted something within me. I have an enhanced sense of comfort, trust, confidence and love. Yea, 2015! Best to you all and know that you are loved. Of course, I enjoy hearing from you; as always, please feel free to send me an email or leave me a comment.
All my love,
