Today is the first day of a new year. 2017. The beginning of a new chapter. A chapter that we can create and write about anything. The world is our oyster to make it anyway we see fit to create. 2016 is in the past and now we carry on, we carry our torches, and we move forward into a new horizon.
It’s amazing to see how far I have come in my journey since I started out last year. I am a completely different person. I am more confident in myself and believe more in myself. I was this, unsure, and often at times shy person. Yet, I have grown more into me.That would not have been possible had I not have taken that proverbial plunge and took myself out there and went on that first adventure so very long ago. It has literally changed my life. For the better.
Many people start their year off with high hopes, they write their resolutions. To give up that. To change this way of thinking. I have had many resolutions, and have changed so much within me. This year I am focusing more on goals and what I wish to accomplish in the new year.
I have written my goal list, and set my intentions for the new year.
Some of them include,
- meditate more
- do more oracle card readings
- go on even more adventures
- love more and truly mean it
- spend more time learning and growing
- become better than I was last year
Last year I started a regular meditation practice and this year I plan to continue with it and go deeper within my meditations, in my practice of stillness. A lot of self healing revolves around meditation, and understanding ourselves, and our needs. And who doesn’t want a few minutes of stillness/silence in their lives. My day does not feel started yet until I take time to meditate. I also started doing oracle card readings for people, and have enjoyed them, and hopefully, within the new year I will be able to do even more for people.
There is no greater force in all of creation than love. It is the one thing that stays with us through everything. People will not remember the things we bought, or even most of what we said, but they will recall the way we made them feel. They way we treated them and others. And I will work to operate more from a place of love and compassion in the new year and beyond. For that is what the world needs above all else at this time. Love and compassion for our neighbors. The world would be a much more gentler place. What we put out into the world we bring back into our own lives. So when we send out that positive energy that is the energy that comes back to us. As per the universal law of attraction.
I took so many adventures last year, and I look forward to where they will take me. The places I will see, the people I will meet. I look forward to it all. And in become a better person that who I was yesterday. That’s all we can ever really ask for ourselves.
So Happy New Year! Make this year your best year yet. No one can do it for you. So take this time to make your plan and goals for this year. And see where you end up this time next year. You may actually enjoy the ride. I know I did.
