I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. But 2023 was a tough year on top of a very tough year on top of a few tough years.
So, it seems right to ask myself this question today. What do I want from 2024?
I want no medical issues or surprises, which is largely out of my control. Other than doing my best to take care of myself mind, body, and soul, as if my life depended on it. Because it does.
This means prioritizing sleep and rest and play and joy and connection and comfort and love. Every day. All day.
This means eating healthily (as I’ve defined it) yet not fanatically. (Which I’m doing, which is amazing with my history. Ping me if you want to hear more about it.)
This means following up with my medical doctors and diving into the many holistic practices and practitioners – my mindfulness, bodywork, yoga, meditation, focus on my vagus nerve, etc. etc. etc. All that helps me and heals me and wholes me.
This means going slower and even more intentionally. Pausing more. Putting my hand on my heart more. Loving myself more. Laughing more. Being in the rest and relaxation responsive mode more.
This means taking to the moon and back potentially further. Speaking out and up more. The audiobook is (finally) in the plans. As are more podcasts and hopefully more speaking engagements (again, ping me if you have ideas for that!).
This means writing more. Perhaps the next book, whatever exactly that is. Perhaps about cancer. Perhaps about recovery. I just know that I’m not done there.
I want to live even more out loud and fully. To lean even more into me and all I want to share with the world. To take up even more space, to give back even more love, to radiate even more joy and self-compassion and adoration to the world.
What do I want from 2024?
Joy. Ease. Laughter. Love. Health.
I guess a wee bit of everything.
How about you? I’d love to know…
