New Year’s Eve…

New Year’s Eve…


Before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, Let’s stop and reflect on the year that has gone by:  

Our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken.

 The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt.  

Cause that’s what New Year’s Eve is all about…Getting another chance.  

The chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and to stop worrying about “what if” and start embracing “what will be.”  

So when that ball drops at midnight, let’s remember to be kind to each other.  

Not just tonight, but all year long.

~New Year’s Eve

Each new year brings another chance to review and renew our selves.

We may want to revisit :

  • Things that didn’t work our right
  • Things that did work our right
  • Things we want to do this year
  • Things we don’t want to do this year
  • New goals
  • Things on our “bucket list”
  • Eating better
  • Better health
  • Read more books
  • Watch more movies
  • Exercise more
  • Have better communication
  • Find a deeper love connection
  • More adventure

In other words just do the best you can with what you have.

I’m not going to feel pressured to “do” or “be” anything this year, instead I’m going to get in touch with my inner being and follow the lead of the Spirit.

Being more peaceful, balanced, loving and kind, I expect things to be easier and I expect to actually accomplish more.

 

~WITH MORE~

 

Unconditional self love…

Inspired action…

Celebration…

and Completion

Chasing rainbows…

Chasing rainbows…


It’s time for you to close the door now on

that which has not been working for you

and is preventing you from enjoying

the life you deserve.

Why hold on to something that is clearly

not beneficial to your life’s purpose,

or is making you unhappy?

Resolve to let go now, and don’t worry

about the changes this action will bring as it

will open the way for something far better to

enter your life, bringing you the happiness and peace of mind that you yearn for.

 

“Your Angels are with you to help you break

free, they just want your happiness,

and will bring it – you’ll see!”

This is the time of year for New Year’s Resolutions.

Starting a new year with new goals and new ideas about making your life even better.

What will you do different this year?

Many people make lists of resolutions and then end up doing the some old things year after year without so much as a slight change.  I guess it feels good to go along with the crowd and at least set some new goals.

I think it is even better when you can look back on the past year knowing you did your best and you progressed in your goals in spite of set backs and diversities.

Make a list of what you accomplished last year.  That will give you a realistic place to start your goals and challenges for this new year to come.

Be present…

Be present…

Be present.  Make love.  Make tea.

Avoid small talk.  Embrace conversation.

Buy a plant, water it.  Make your bed.

Make someone else’s bed.  Have a smart mouth,

and quick wit.  Run.  Make art.  Create.

Swim in the ocean.  Swim in the rain.

Take chances.  Ask questions.  Make mistakes.

Learn.  Know your worth.  Love Fiercely.

Forgive quickly.  Let go of what doesn’t

make you happy.  Grow.

~Author unknown

In other words

 

~ LIVE YOUR LIFE ~

 

Do the things that make you happy no matter what others do.

 

Balance yourself in a sea of self forgiveness and motivation.

 

You can do it all so you’d better get started!

 

You may make mistakes but don’t let that stop you.  Everybody makes mistakes no matter how careful they might be.  You just can’t make someone else be honest if they don’t want to be.

And trusting someone who is dishonest may appear to be your mistake at the time, but just wait, it may be the most valuable lesson you could ever learn.  Just don’t let their bad slow you down.  Move on and keep going.

Learn to say NO and keep practicing it.

Don’t end up sorry because someone else won’t be responsible for their own life.

Learn your lesson and keep on living!

 

Know your worth and attract others who know your worth also.

Those who are not afraid to show you that they love you by what they say and do.

BECAUSE

You deserve the best life possible.

 

Go for it…

Victory is close…

Victory is close…


“Never let your dreams die in

the daylight.  Arise each day and

sculpt the day purposefully like an

artist, making it your own.  Fight for

what you believe in.  Honor the

struggle as something that is good

and necessary and important in

summoning and stretching the best

within you.  Victory

 is close. Victory is close. Victory

 is close. “

Treasured gifts…

Treasured gifts…

 

The most treasured gifts

are the meaningful

moments we create with

the people we love.  They

become priceless memories

decorating our lives.

~Dodinsky

 

*

Holidays are some of the best times for exchanging gifts of all kinds.  And some of the most precious gifts you can give and receive are the ones from beloved family members.

The sentimental memories created are more cherished than the most expensive material gifts available.

A baby’s contagious laugh, or a child’s warm embrace may top the list of most importance.

Other equally important memories are the taste of  fine family meals together finished off with delicious pies, cakes, or home made cookies.

Spending time together with any loved one is one of the best things ever imagined and makes life worth living, decorating our lives memorably.

Civility…

Civility…


Practice Civility

toward one another,

admire and emulate

ethical behavior

wherever you find it.

Apply a rigid standard

of morality to your lives;

and if, periodically,

you fail

as you surely will,

adjust your lives,

not the standards.

~Ted Koppel

 

*

Keep up your standards and live your own life no matter what any one else does.  And if you fail yourself or others, and mess up at any time just readjust  your self and keep on going.  Doing the best you can with what you have.

Follow the rules that work the best for you and your loved ones.

Do your best…

Do your best…



Just do your best to keep yourself in

balance.  One of the first things that causes

Energy misalignment,is asking or

demanding too much of yourself in terms of

time and effort. In other words, you just

cannot burn the candle at both ends, so

that you are physically tired, and then

expect yourself to have cheerful attitude.

So, the rule of thumb has to be:  “I’m going

to be very, very, very happy, and then do

everything I have time to do after that.”

~Abraham-Hicks

Paths…

Paths…


There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn’t matter which path you take.  The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.

~Hindu proverb

 

*

 

So many people think that their way is the only way.

This leads them to separate and segment themselves from other people who might otherwise be excellent allies to them.

Each person has his/her own right to choose their own way in life and to have their own opinions.

You might not agree with them and they might not agree with you, but we are all people with those rights.

Each of us trying our best to find the right path for our selves and our loved ones.

Each of us wanting to live our best lives…

Do your part…

Do your part…


She felt like doing her part to change the

world, so she started by giving thanks for all the blessings in her life, rather than

bemoaning all that was missing from it.

Then she complimented her reflection in the mirror,

instead of criticizing it as she usually did.

Next she walked into her neighborhood and offered her smile to everyone she passed,

whether or not they offered theirs to her.

Each day she did these things, and soon they became a habit.  Each day she lived with more gratitude, more acceptance, more kindness.

And sure enough, the world around her began to change.  Because she had decided so, she was single-handedly doing her part to change it.

~Scott Stabile

 

*

Sometimes we are just not where we want to be in life or not where we think we should be. Whether it is because of our age, or our advanced education, or station in life, it becomes easier to complain about all the things that are going wrong instead of what is going right.

And honestly, if that is what you are doing, you will keep getting more to complain about.

If you realize that you are a complainer – you can change yourself. In fact, you have to change what you are thinking about and speaking about in order to change the outcomes you are experiencing.

We are trained from a young age to seek out people who resonate with us.  Some one who understands us and what we are going through.  A soul mate – or a life partner. And while it is good to have people who seemingly understand you, if you are determined to live a life of complaint, you will keep getting more to complain about.

Things will never get better until you can be thankful and grateful for what you have right now,

changing your perspective to that of appreciation.  There is always something to  appreciate.

 

If you are breathing (and I assume you are) you can start there.  Many have difficulty even breathing.

What else can you appreciate?

Do you have:

  • children
  • clothes to wear
  • food
  • something to eat with
  • something to drink
  • a car to drive
  • a drivers license
  • friends
  • a house to live in
  • shoes
  • a phone
  • a computer
  • pets
  • television
  • music
  • a bed
  • blankets
  • etc.

If you start being thankful and grateful for what you have, more will come.  It may take a while to change your habits to positive ones, but if you really do want a better outcome in life, you have to put the effort into having an attitude of appreciation instead of complaint.

There is no way around it.

You get what you think about in life.

 

So if you want to do your part in changing the world,

start with a smile and see where that SMILE

can take you…
