My New Year’s resolution is to keep things real, here on the Southern Tip of Africa.
So what does that mean?
Well, for me it’s to be 100% authentic, 24/7. Sounds simple enough…for most people. But not for me. I’m not saying, I’m not for real or that I am the big pretender. I’m saying that for a serial people pleaser, keeping myself authentic can sometimes be a challenge.
What can I do about it? I can make time to centre myself every day and if need be, nip to the loo for a secret top up. I can try to make decisions that resonate and feel right for me. I can still say yes, if it feels right but I’m going to practice saying no kindly, when it doesn’t. I’m not going to metamorph into a cold-hearted, nasty piece of toxic waste. (Please prod me if I do!) But I am going to try and live my own truth, take back my own power and find out who the hell I really am and what I am supposed to be doing on this crazy planet 🙂
I often experience the incredible lightness of being, but this year I am aiming for always. Being part of the 7 thousand plus, New Year’s revellers at Kirstenbosch Gardens, affirmed my resolve. Divine company, good food and bubbly, a threatening sky relenting and giving way to a star studded heaven and then Jeremy Loops rocking us into 2016… real enough to begin my journey!
Here’s to an authentic trip through a magical 2016 🙂
