My New Year’s Resolution

Cheers to an amazing 2023!

As the years pass, I find that I dislike goal-oriented new year’s resolutions. “Get this done, do that, stop doing this or that”. This year, I’m taking a new approach and leaving all the pressure, headiness and lack of embodiment that goes into resolutions behind me.

Let’s face it, life is short and why spend it focused on goals, successes or failures when you can be immersed in the journey, fully present , in joy and at peace with yourself?

If you have set a New Years resolution, I’ll still cheer you on however, I also invite you to also choose a word for 2023. You can even use my word if you want!

Instead of setting unrealistic goals like I often do, this year I have chosen an empowering New Year’s word to live by. This is not a resolution to get something done or quit something. Instead, it’s the background theme to everything I’m doing. It’s an enjoyable state-of-being not a task, rule, deadline or parameter.

2023’s New Year’s Resolution is Simultaneality.

Yes, I sometimes make up words. How do you think Urban Dictionary gets their words? 😆 Well, I’m not exactly sure how they get some of their words (LOL) but If there is not a word that describes exactly what I am feeling I can find it if I pause and tune in to what it is I am embodying.

Si-mul-tan-e-al-it-y : The state-of-mind or realization that everything is happening simultaneously and that ‘possibilities’ are living, breathing parts of every moment not something that comes to those who wait. When we embody this reality we embrace that so many things are happening at the same time, even our beliefs around them.

In a state of Simultaneality there is no sense of urgency, no definitive black and white ideas/judgements and/or emotions. When embodied with Simultaneality, we can let go of goal-driven lifestyles and live more open-heartedly to all of the possibilities that are unfolding in every given moment. This shift creates more capacity and allowance for our own life experience and our experience of others. Simultaneously to the perception of any said idea, so many other possibilities are alive!

In a state of simultaneality
our capacity for life’s experience

So instead, for my new year’s resolution, I choose a state of Simultaneality. It is ALL HAPPENING and I am embodying it. My goals, my dreams, my reality.  There is no failure because I am allowing it all to be. I already feel so much more joy!

As the days go by and I pour my heart and soul into a soon-to-come beautiful offering for all massage therapists, many other things will be experienced in my life. Some wonderful, some challenging -because this is life. But in all that happens, endless possibilities are happening simultaneously. In this state-of-mind, magic will occur because there is a true open door and endless capacity that I feel in my entire being and that embodiment is such a full kinesthetic YES that whatever unfolds in 2023 is going to be AMAZING!

So, I wish you the best in your own new year and give you this word Simultaneality to try on. Or choose an empowering word that you resonate with which can be a theme for you. You can even make one up! Let me know how it goes!
