"Your playing it small does not serve the world." - Marianne Williamson
Ending the year with a renewed sense of belief is powerful. Not just any kind of belief, but the kind of free, faithful belief a child has.
In an effort to maintain the childlike belief of Christmas & progress into 2017 with that amazing energy, I look back at a post I wrote at the beginning of 2016. It was one of the best pieces of writing I did and something that refueled me over and over throughout this year. A line from it also inspired the name and focus of this blog: ALL GOOD THINGS. With that, I share with you again my New Year’s Dare and nudge you to tap into your dreams with childlike abandon and ask. . .
What will you dare to do in 2017?
2017- I DARE YOU.
I dare you to make a change, or not. I dare you to take a step, or not. I dare you to do exactly what is right for you. Whether you move or stand still does not matter. I dare you to not be burdened by what you "should" do, but instead live in the space of what you are meant to do. I dare you to get quiet enough each day to listen to what your heart is whispering and bravely obey that. I dare you to trust so much in yourself and have so much belief that you say thank you before you can even sense blessings are coming. I dare you to completely accept yourself for who and what you truly are & honor your deepest desires - one small step or maybe one huge leap at a time. I dare you to do this without concern for the results or attachment to the outcome. I dare you to be fully immersed in the joy of just dreaming your dreams and trusting all will work out just as it should because it always does. I dare you to find fulfillment in new & surprising ways. I dare you to allow yourself to explore & enjoy each moment of life. I dare you to stay open, be soft & flexible & trust so that when outcomes do not look the way you expect them to you can still see the beauty in them & learn, grow & be thankful. I dare you to believe that everything will be okay, maybe even be better than okay. I dare you to believe that life might even get so fabulous it completely blows you away. I dare you to believe all good things are coming your way. Yes, all good things. I dare you to believe each and every moment of your life is beautiful. As U2 sings: "It's a beautiful day! What you don't have, you don't need it now. What you don't know you can feel it somehow." I dare you to trust that feeling. Cheers to each beautiful day of 2017!
Here's to enjoying your life & All Good Things my friends!
