The new year. A time for new beginnings, fresh starts and facing the future. It's also the time to cut old ties, end unproductive cycles and saying good bye to negative people and things.
This new year starts with a new moon. Something that hasn't happened in 19 years. This year is pointing all signs towards starting anew.
The year of the Wood Horse. A time to act fast, buy that home, launch that business, travel the world, make a big purchase, get a promotion at work, have a breakthrough – take a leap and fly. If it’s right, then there’s nothing to think about. Just follow instincts.
Over the past week I've been preparing and meditating on what I want from this new year. What I want from myself. I'm not just a mother and a wife but also a woman. About 2 weeks ago, my father-in-law fussed me out saying it's great that you have sacrificed the past 6 years for your kids, to your marriage and husband but now is the time for you.
Aside from a few people and those that have been seeing me on social media, I have been using this past year to slowly discover what I want for myself. I've been on the path of returning my hair to its Goddess given kinks, coils and curls. (February 11th will make my one year mark part a relaxer. Woohoo!) I've slowly been losing weight, and cleaning my eating by cutting red meats, sugars and simple carbs.
This year my word will be PUSH.
Far too many years I've let the voices of my parents and their spouses and my husband's family control my internal peace.
This year, like I did in 2009, I'll be cutting out family who really don't care about the happiness, betterment or peace of my family while reconnecting with the elder members. I've already gotten their numbers and plan on making a conscious effort to open my family and heart to them. My moon sign is Scorpio, so y'all know how hard this is.
This is my year of rebuilding and refining myself. I can't wait to see how the goddess, particularly Kali (she's been calling me for a while), will lead me.
