Better Than 2020 Vision
The year 2020 turned out to be a year like no other. For many, the year 2020 was blurred and marred with confusion, isolation, despair and discord. The pandemic forced us to slow down to reassess our lives, change what didn’t work for us, and focus on to what we really needed. We learned that our priorities have shifted. We see the bigger picture and transition from ego-driven thinking to a more universal vision. Moving ahead to 2021 with more clarity, our focus now is to work on what’s most important in our lives. We clear our mind and try to find our rhythm again, bringing back chords and harmony to our existence. It is a slow recovery of mapping out a vision on a core level.
Jean Paul Sartre said, “As soon as man perceives himself as free and wishes to use his freedom, his activity is play.” With new awareness we understand that there is no better time than now to be synchronized with our higher core level to reach our fullest potential. When we’re aligned to our authentic self we realize our worth; we no longer feel trapped, lost, stuck, doubtful and fearful or blame others. We no longer expect outside forces to make us happy. Only when we connect to our inner strength, and take charge of our lives we’re free to live the life we want.
By creating a new vision board and a clear roadmap, we proceed to work on our character refinement and personal development as well as improving our connections to others. When we engage in creative arts, relax, meditate, pray, volunteer our time, or donate to our favorite charity, we feel recharged and fulfilled. We create miracles by sharing ourselves for the greater good. With higher wisdom, we think in terms of oneness and not divisiveness. We choose love over fear. Then we receive more love and happiness in return. With this kind of consciousness and unconditional love, we grow and find hope and possibilities. Naturedly, it requires daily work, but it is a way of life that ultimately will lead us to peace, fulfillment, and empowerment.
I wish you a new year enlightened with a new clear vision, clarity, and inner peace.
