if I haven't said it yet... HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This is an heart-felt assessment of MY condition... that is all!

My new year's resolution is to keep drama OUT of my life... at least as much as possible.
I'm leaving any pain and loss behind me and I'm starting new. I'm concentrating on my ability to help people heal their bodies and on my ability to pass knowledge along to my students. It is the path I was meant to take and I'm damned good at it ... I truly love it.

As I looked back at my life and my psyche , I know that not only do I strive to help people with their physical bodies I also wish to help them heal in every way. I guess that's the goal [curse?] of any healer. I've wanted to be able to fix everything and I have to realize that's not possible or even desirable in every situation.

I have a problem of not being able to say 'no' most of the time and it stretches me very thin... this I'm striving to change.
I have a problem of believing too readily. I'm not gullible, but I do tend to take people at their word... I will strive to step back and look at the situation a little more objectively.
I have a problem of thinking actions by others reflect their feelings for, or opinions of, me... this is egocentric... I'm striving to change this as well.

A friend told me the other day that she wished I had "someone" in my life (she's happily married). I said I have lots of people in my life. Yes, she was talking about a "partner/spouse/whatever". I'm not sure why she thinks I need such a thing. THAT would not be the way to simplify my life! If I think about it honestly, I don't WANT a spouse... been there. I don't WANT to have to compromise that much. I like my life.

I guess I'm just trying to simplify my life as much as possible.

Over the years, friends come and go but I've noticed the true friends always stay.
When I love... I love forever, no matter whether the person is around or not.

It's good to take stock of our lives a couple of times a year. Whittle down the wood that falls into our circle...and connect with our intentions that seemed to have wandered....you have a good handle on what you need to do to be happy...keep doing it!
