(Gallette Des Rois: my beloved almond paste/frangipani cake from Paris, a tradition for Epiphany.
See past post about this tradition.
January 6th, Epiphany
(the day the three Kings came bearing gifts)
tends to be my real New Year beginning.
Usually I'm not quite ready when January 1st hits.
Maybe we're traveling (like this year when we are just back from France
or I've come down with an illness, or there's too much on my plate at the moment
or I'm still reeling from the holidays
but by Epiphany (also one of my favorite words)
I'm ready to start making my goals for the year
(my preference to NY's resolutions.)
And this year,
(especially because this weekend included a New Moon
so I would be doing this anyway)
I'm following in the footsteps of a few others who have created a list
of the things they would like more of in their life.
So here is mine.
It may include more or less (so probably change) by the next new moon:
more love... around me and in the world. more travel. more forest bathing. more writing.
less hearing other people's gossip.
more angels. more healing... all around. more energy information.
more family. more entertaining. more light.
more divinity in our lives. more epiphanies!
more hikes. more exercise. more reading things i love.
more trust in myself. more retreats... and the financial ease to do them.
more dreams with messages. more writing. more travel for sacred purposes.
*** more sacred ***
more massages (for me now). more caring less... and caring more.
more meditation. more time! more tithing. more kisses. more writing.
more hugs (full-on, tight-squeeze, blast-your-fear-around-it body hugs).
more presence. more awakening. more beauty. more honesty.
more clarity. more gratitude. more sunsets. more compassion.
more F words: fucking fearless, fabulous, fun, fantastic, friends,
fauna, fire, favorite films,
(none of those bald scary-looking creatures... tho I'm sure they need love too...
or squashed-faced nasty attitude felines like our neighbor George
who is as old as time and has no claws but still somehow terrorizes our cats).
more publishing. more writing.
Did I mention more writing?
Feel free to mention some of the things on your More List for this year!
And Bonne Année to you and yours!
