I’ve been thinking a lot about January and the expectations we put on it as the time for change.
The first thing to note here, is that what’s right for one person won’t necessarily be right for the next. We love to generalise in our society, to round things up neatly in a ball of pressure and mass subscription to what’s “normal.”
Of course there’s no such thing and the more we root ourselves in our individuality, the more powerful we become.
What I find most interesting about the generic approach towards January, is the focus of “less”.
The message often is, that we need to:
Weigh less, eat less, drink less, spend less, go out less, play less, physically be less.
Whilst many of these things may be true at times and for some of us, it’s so interesting how this has been adopted as part of a generic, conscious approach to this time of year.
No wonder we feel a sense of lack when it comes to this month.
Then there’s the message it sends about the “fun” that was had over the festive period…
It says; “If we rest, have fun, enjoy pleasurable activities, we have to pay for it, by inflicting a life of lack afterwards”
But is that really true?
Don’t we all deserve pleasure, joy, fun, rest, relaxation?
Of course there’s a balance to be held when it comes to indulgence of food, drink, money, but there is so much more to the world of pleasure than these.
We all inherently deserve joy, fun, pleasure and relaxation.
So, I would love to give January a re-imagining. How can we enjoy more as we take our first steps into this new year?
I’d love to offer some suggestions that may help to embrace the energy of abundance through the winter months:
Let’s make this the month of MORE together!
I hope some of these provide inspiration or at least invite a sense of abundance into the way we approach the winter months. Drop me a message with the ways you’re embraced “more” energy right now – I’d love to hear from you!
