03 Jan Yes! My 2015 Intentions
2015 is going to be the Year of Yes for me.
I see Yes as a form of consent rather than the old reluctant compliance that often lies beneath the surface of our yeses. We say yes because it’s expected; yes because we’re flattered to be asked (but really don’t give a shit). Yes because of the sense of obligation to a certain person or conventions/norms.
Yes as a consensual act flows from intention and presence–a feeling that the rightness of any given decision has to do with my own path, my desires and my values. Yes as an act that comes from the gut–awake and clear and powerful.
That is the life I want to lead for 2015 and the years to come. I got over being the Nice girl in 2014 and learned to say No to things that didn’t serve me. It involved bold moves and was so freeing for me.
Yes to new opportunities. Yes to being a little more capricious (in a good way). Yes to finding new ways to express myself-through words, drawings, color and actions.
Yes to seeking out pleasure–in all forms!
Yes to embracing my sensuousness.
Yes to whimsy and impulsiveness and creativity. To experimentation.
Yes to expressing myself as I see fit. Not living up to ‘expectations’.
Yes to letting go of stuff that doesn’t serve me—stuff, people, old habits, obligations.
Yes to bold moves—to putting myself out there, to embracing exposure and vulnerability.
Yes to the unknown.
Yes, as I define it, is about being in the moment, stepping outside of my comfort zone, ignoring the fears, saying screw you to ‘oughta and shoulda’ and embracing life with a big enthusiastic Yes.
