Many blessings of Abundance!!
Happy New Year, Fire Monkey!
We may have been torn between two paths.
Do I take the path that will make me happy?
Or do I take the path that will make others happy?
Sometimes we tend to put aside our own happiness and joy, possibly because we feel we need to sacrifice our own needs for the greater good of all.
But why does the greater good actually mean that we need to be unhappy?
It doesn't. Sometimes thinking that we are doing things for what we think is right for others, may actually not be the right path at all.
Maybe, we need to re-think this a little.
Keeping ourselves from our joy, will only create resentment and regret. If others are empathetic, they will feel our energy.
They will know that we aren't really living authentically. That we may be just going through the motions.
This Year of the Fire Monkey is to break down old patterns of pretending to be happy and start living life the way we truly want to live.
We want to be happy. We so desperately want others to respect our needs as we do theirs.
Isn't that really how we should be living? Authentically? Being Truthful with ourselves and others.
Put down the mask. Be the joy filled spirit that lies within. If you don't like what your career is doing to you, change it.
If you find yourself going through the motions of a relationship, move on.
If you are constantly doing the same thing over and over and waiting for things to change, know that YOU need to make that change.
When opportunities knock, don't deny, repress or excuse it, embrace it!
Sometimes we will be offered this opportunity on a silver platter!
Take it. Don't talk yourself out of it.
