Farewell to 2022!!! Thank you for all the gifts and lessons you’ve brought, now it’s time to move on and make way for the new!
Here are some great practices for letting go of the old and making room for the new:
• Have a ritual bath or shower and wash away all disappointments, frustrations, unfulfilled dreams, pain, illness, suffering, grief, lonelines, isolation, loss of any kind. You can also write all of these out, then burn the paper in a ceremonial release
• Forgive yourself and others for all the things that did not go the way you wanted them to. When you’ve completed these rituals, if you wish to do them, treat yourself to a comforting cup of hot chocolate, snuggle up with a good book and a quilt and a cat if you live with one, and just relax and release.
I have written my long list and burned it in a can outdoors; tomorrow I shall write out my intentions for 2023. There is a tradition in some cultures that says the first thing you do on the first day of the New Year, is something you will do all year long, so make it something fabulous! I’m going to count my money, write out a list of blessings I’m grateful for, and practice laughing for no reason! What will be your first activity of 2023?
Here are another photo of my Christmas tree to brighten your day. I’ll be taking that down within the coming week, as it’s getting pretty dried out and saggy. EnJoy!
