2013… how does it feel?

So, you know what you want to do in the new year… You know where you want to go… but do you know how you want to feel in 2013?

I must admit that in terms of goals, new year’s resolutions and the like I’ve never thought about my life from that angle until reading this great article by GG Renee over at All the Many Layers. In the article she writes:

“Think about how you want to feel. Don’t worry about specific outcomes. How do you want to feel about your work? Your mate? Your finances? What about your health? Your personal development & growth? Even think about how you want to feel about your body, your wardrobe and your hair. By evoking the feelings you want to feel, you’ll create the environment for those things to manifest.”

Me, I want to feel SECURE in knowing that my decisions aren’t inherently right or wrong, good or bad. Every decision I make, even a so-called bad one, has the potential to be a lesson learned which can only make me wiser should I allow myself to be taught.

I want to feel WORTHY of the good things, people, and opportunities that come my way. Sometimes we let guilt, self-pity, or doubt obstruct our vision of the beautiful view God bestows upon us. If He saw fit for the good to be… it must be. Thank Him and keep it moving!

I want to feel BEAUTIFUL when I look in the mirror but not from first glance aesthetics. Because every kink and curl of my hair does its own thing… and that’s fine by me. Because every accessory or article of clothing I own makes me feel PROUD to wear it. Because every slight indication of age reminds me that I’ve been blessed and favored to see a new day.

I want to feel HEALTHY… Point. Blank. And the period. 🙂

I want to feel BOLD in my pursuit of further self-discovery and COMFORTABLE enough to do so with criticism and without validation no matter who decides (or decides not) to rock out with me.

I could go on but I’d like to know a little bit about how you want to feel. What people, things, sounds, or places can make you feel that way?

This song always makes me feel… FREE! Check it out!

“Oooh, baby, let’s take life’s highway.

It’s automatically yours and my way.

No road is too rough to travel.

We’ll walk barefoot on life’s gravel”

Bilal – “Free”

  1. I love all these feelings and I’m right with you! I’ve been writing the ways I want to feel on pieces of construction paper and sticking them up in my bathroom! I’m in there a lot so It’ll make me spend a lot of time reflecting on them. I’m so glad you were inspired to try this for yourself 🙂

    • Hey, the bathroom is a great place now that you mention it. LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Your articles are always so inspirational… Never stop doing you! 🙂
