It’s a brand new year in a brand new decade and those of us here in the U.S. are encouraged to make some New Year’s Resolutions. We only have one: to never make a New Year’s Resolution again. In January people sign up for the gym in record numbers, by April, those numbers have been cut in half. And it’s the same with diets and cooking classes and organizing your house. This year, we have a better idea, we invite you to have a New Year’s Revolution.
What’s the difference? Glad you asked! A New Year’s Revolution is when we stop pushing ourselves and criticizing ourselves into change. Instead, we take a gentle, curious and loving approach to ourselves. This way, we find a deep place of peace and acceptance about our life choices, our bodies, our sexual desires and fantasies, and our failures and disappointments. It is amazing what happens when you stop pushing, you actually start living your life the way that you want to live it. A Resolution (boo!) is when you listen to the voices that you’ve taken on from the outside telling you what you what’s wrong with you and what you are supposed to do to fix it. A Revolution (yea!) is when you reclaim your birthright, your connection to the inner voice that actually knows what you really want so that you can feel comfortable, safe, joyful and fulfilled.
