It’s only the very beginning but already, I have decided that this year is going to be different. No more over thinking, no more planning ahead, no more constantly second guessing every decision or every thought and no more stressing over the endless possibilities of the future. Instead, this year I am simply going to ‘go with the flow’ in every sense of the word.
This year I am not going to write a long list of New Year’s Resolutions in an attempt to make my world seem brighter, but rather I am simply going to make it that way.
This year there is only one resolution that has managed to make it to the top of the list and that is to trust in the process. To trust in life and everything that comes with it. To trust in the mystery and embrace the magical way in which life cleverly spins its web, knowing with absolute certainty that wherever I end up, is exactly where I am meant to be.
This year I am going to trust that as long as happiness is involved, then I must be heading in the right direction, because 99% of the time anything that makes you happy can’t be entirely bad. Regardless of whether it is temporary or everlasting, happiness is happiness and something that makes you smile is worth holding onto, for quite possibly as long as you can.
This year I am going to approach the world with more faith than ever before. Not faith in the religious sense however, but rather an unwavering faith in the fact that somehow, eventually, everything will fall into place.
Faith that despite the times where we may choose to believe otherwise, life rarely makes mistakes and while there may well be moments when we feel as though we are headed slightly off track, the truth is that we are never quite as lost as it may seem. At some point the smoke will settle, the confusion will pass and once again, it will all begin to make perfect sense. Until then however, I will be trusting in the process and doing my best to enjoy the ride.
Until then I will be bravely stepping out of my comfort zone, taking every possible opportunity that comes my way and with any luck, quite possibly entering a whole new world. A big, bright and beautiful world which I will be exploring with an overwhelming sense of contentment; believing entirely in the notion that at any given moment, I am exactly where I am meant to be.
Dearest 2014; I think this time around, you’re the one who is going to be in for a surprise.
