Well Lilibeaners, here we sit at the edge of yet another year…one just about over and another just about beginning. I love the symbolism of this holiday…stock-taking, fresh starts…a whole new set of days and opportunities for do-overs. It can be sad as we say goodbye to people or places or things we leave behind but mostly, it’s a time for looking forward and moving on.
After too many New Year’s eves where I couldn’t wait for it to be over already, tonight I am closing the books on a year I really loved…2014. This was the year that I solidly and gladly rejoined the land of the living. After a long, difficult decade of yuck, I finally had a chance to stop and catch my breath…which gave me a chance to do some healing and letting go. This, in turn, opened the door to so many good things…new job, new friends…new attitudes…
The biggest impact to my year was, hands down, my gratitude experiment. I can say without a doubt that having an attitude of gratitude is like a little slice of magic. It’s been said that if you change your mindset, you change your life. That, my friends, is a bonafide truth bomb.
And now, as much as I loved 2014, I am ready to turn the page and get rolling on 2015. I’ve chosen “heart” as my one-word mantra for this new year…time to open it up and let it lead for a little while. Or a long while. We’ll see how it goes. 😉
So lovers, here’s to fresh starts and do-overs in 2015. Remember to look for the blessings in your life every day and to manifest the magic by being grateful for them. And know that today and always, I wish you everything your heart desires. Wherever it leads, I hope you follow. ♥
