I’m sitting here, the first week of the new decade. Sitting, thinking, sitting, pondering……
What happened in 2019? What am I looking forward to in 2020?
2019 had its ups and downs. Lessons learned, lessons lost, some to probably be repeated.
Mostly, I want to take in the last decade and sit with it for a few more moments. What wisdom might I have picked up? It seems easier to move forward if I look back. I am not thinking about what went wrong or right, but what happened. How do we judge events, ideas that happened? Perhaps what seemed wrong at the time turned out to be right.
As I ponder this, I find myself doing a small bit of an Awareness Through Movement® lesson. Doing these lessons, even for a few minutes, helps me to reset my thinking, my body, and my nervous system.
I would like to share this small lesson with you.
Sit on a chair. Be comfortable. Allow your feet to be on the floor. Sit forward toward the edge of the chair.
There is no right or wrong here. We call this part a “scan.” Where are you? You can listen to yourself.
What is happening right now?
Check yourself with the little scan we did at the beginning.
This is one little thing I do to get in touch with myself. Give it a try. It may or may not work for you.
My wish for this year is presence. I strive to stay in the moment.
We are all on our own path. Through relationships, we can make each others’ paths a little less rocky. I value you in my life and thank you for our relationship.
To a Great New Year,
