Considering the idea that nothing lasts forever: what was the most important relationship that you fostered in 2012?
How will you continue to nurture it in 2013?
Brace yourself……… my most important relationship this year was with me, myself and I.
Like many women, I’ve made romantic relationships a very important part of my life, for most of my life. This hasn’t always worked out so well and often left me feeling rather cross and unfulfilled.
This year, I realised fully (I’d always thought this, you understand, but didn’t really internalise it till this year) that all that I need, I must get from myself. That happiness is an inside job.
So, this year I spent a lot more time (and money) on getting to know where I’m at. I turned 40 this year, which is meant to be a milestone, plus our business has really matured a lot this year. It felt very fruition-y, 2012 did.
Although I did have a luscious handfasting ceremony with my fella Bik, it was as much a coming into my own current state of Jani-ness as it was about him and I. It gave me a chance to reflect on how far I’ve come from being not-Jani, to being very Jani indeed. The way I was comfortable to have a commitment ceremony totally on our own terms, and the way that was received by the people around us – wowsers. It feels fabulous. I’m lucky to have a knot-husband who enables that, too. Very lucky indeed.
I’m not saying I’m all the way there yet because I really ain’t, but things are so much better.
Nothing lasts forever, true, but this year I worked a lot on the one lifetime relationship I have – with Meeeee!
In 2013 I will continue to nurture it with more openness to receiving, stronger fences (maybe even a drystone wall or two) to protect what’s important to me and my own personal space, more fun, more getting paint on me. The good stuff will abound.
