New Year - New
Maybe I knew this before, but it feels like the first time I've ever acknowledged that the projects I've assigned myself for the new year are about cultivating my inner upgrade. So, as an example, the fitness and food choices will result in greater fitness, but come from my growing discipline. It's so obvious to me now that it's not about weight loss or even self-image, but a desire to be my best self from the inside-out. As above, so below.
And the natural metamorphosis images abound: seeds coming up, butterflies coming out, snakes slipping free, hermit crabs relocating - all because the urge to become the next great thing is stronger than the fear of change.
