Has living with the ongoing planetary angst caused you to nix writing New Year's resolutions? Give up goalsetting? Abandon affirmations? Or are you pondering and planning 2023?
If there is anything I've learned the hard way, it's the importance of living life without regrets. Those "if only's" drain the life force in more ways than you may realize.
Like with my mother.
We had a tricky relationship, to say the least. But when she passed, my tears were all about regrets. Granted, I had cleaned up years of teenage rebelliousness, but what I regretted most was allowing my buttons to get in the way of being fully present for her.
Spending time with her was often tortuous -- we had polar opposite views about most everything and it was difficult to listen to her constant barrage of criticism and judgmentalness.
Getting closer to death, she tamed. As did I.
I was able to see her as a lost and fearful woman filled with regrets about her own life. Compassion replaced annoyance. Gratitude replaced resentment. I accepted that her views were just her views.
We spent her last few weeks quietly, just being together. But it felt like not enough. Never enough. Yet on a deeper level, I knew it was the perfect amount at the perfect moment.
From then on, I committed to feeling complete in all areas of my life. I communicated fully, withheld nothing. I expressed emotions, even messy ones. I cleaned up dangled relationships. I ended conversations saying I love you.
Living a regret-free life means living very differently. Priorities change; fears and buttons no longer control you. You are brutally honest with yourself.
It means knowing that if you were to die right now, there is nothing you put off or avoided. You feel whole and complete.
On a spiritual level, your life purpose is to give and receive authentic unconditional love. Not attaining that weighs heavily; it is your biggest incompletion.
But you still have time.
Starting now, ask yourself, what do I need to complete? Hear what comes to you. You may not like it; it may bring up fear, but trust it.
Then, choose to take actions of some kind, even symbolically, to complete those situations. You know what to do.
You may never know what happens from those completions. But know that in some way your energy will shift, allowing more self-love to arrive. Which is what you deserve.
By the way, you don't have to accomplish them all in 2023. Some might take years. Know that your spirit has no shoulds -- there is no time limit on what you came here to do.
The last few years have been challenging us to shift from fear to love.
Remember that you signed up for it.
And you can do it.
One completion at a time.
