As the clock strikes 12 midnight on New Year's eve, it marks the end of one year and the beginning of another. It happens every year. It's like you are given permission to let go of what has been, and welcome what could be.
There's freshness in the energy of a New Year.
The commencement of a new year brings with it an opportunity to create change. It's a chance to reflect on the year that was, bringing yourself some closure. This creates space to reset yourself in preparation for the changes that lie ahead. This opportunity to create change happens on a daily basis as well. Each day you wake up is another chance to live life. Another opportunity to create magic.
2020 was a year in which the word 'pivot' became a common word. As the economic impact of the pandemic started to bite, there was a need to change in order to survive. Wineries made hand sanitiser from ethanol. People were working from home. Parents became school teachers. Fitness classes went online. Life as we knew it had changed.
October 2021, Melbourne, Australia's second largest city, entered its 19th month in lockdown. Vaccinations have become mandatory within certain lines of work and vaccination passports are emerging as a necessary travel document. Within all this control, how are you flowing?
When you flow with life, life flows with you.
Kerry Campbell, in her article 'Why Going with the Flow is in your Best Interest - How to Flow with Life says 'going with the flow is about developing certain habits and ways of thinking that open us up to the expansion of “allowing” in our life.' She goes on to say -
Seek to find the “groove” of a situation or event and follow it
Don’t get attached to outcomes
Be willing to be an observer of your life versus trying to direct it
Express gratitude for where life takes you.
Find ways to learn to embrace the flow as a mutual partnership.
