Rather than a resolution, I prefer to set a new intention every year. Last year my intention was to stop comparing myself to others, and by extension, stop caring so much what other people think about me. If you followed my story at all then you know I was pretty challenged by this intention. Be careful what you put out to the Universe!
When I took a moment to reflect on 2014, I came to see that the root of many of these issues was a lack of confidence on my part. That is why I plan to make this year the year of confidence. Besides, I'll need all the confidence I can scrounge up since I've got Big Visions for 2015.
I am confident.
It sounds like an oxymoron right? Here I am blathering to the interwebs about my personal life in no-holds barred way and I'm telling you I have confidence issues? I am perfectly comfortable talking in front of large groups of people and I'm the one that needs a confidence boost? Yes, it's true. While I'm confident enough in some areas of my life, there are many others that need a little pick me up. Now is the time.
By coincidence, I took a yoga class on New Year's day and was randomly given this angel card as my parting gift. I love it when these things happen. I guess my intuition was spot on again.
"Moving forward does not necessarily require you to have confidence in yourself. Confidence in God is enough, along with knowing that God works through you and with you in all ways. Lean upon us if your confidence wavers, and we will buoy your courage and faith."
Universe...it's a deal.
