It's the time of year when people are reflecting on 2019 and creating visions for 2020. There are so many ways to start fresh or begin again. What if the only thing you did is to have one very honest conversation with yourself? Would it be about your contribution to the struggling world around you or the battles within? Would it be about your successes or failures? Would it be about how you make a difference or what you do to get in the way of using your gifts?
What have you been in denial over, avoided facing, tried to forget, longed to say out loud, silently believed? What truth has circled around the edges of your life waiting for the moment you pause to listen? What honest conversation would change your life and bring light to the shadows of your heart and mind?
And can you do this with deep love and compassion for yourself so that whatever is said lifts your spirits with joy and possibility?
Just have that conversation now; telling the truth in words written or spoken in front of a mirror looking into your own eyes. And then be brave enough to share this honest conversation in the safety of a solid friend or compassionate witness who will stand with you through the curves your life might take from knowing this now.
