I am feeling so blessed and so incredibly happy! Life is indeed an adventure and I am so excited for every morning’s new breath and the chance to create the best day that I can.
I am thankful for the bursts of miracles throughout the day. Miracles are everywhere if you just take a second to see them. I am thankful for the many challenges I had in 2014. I triumphed! As I am writing this I am facing 2 stressful situations, I am choosing to stare them in the face and say: bring it on!
On the rare instance I feel discouraged I think: With God, the Universe, the Light, my Guardian Angels, my mother’s prayers, etc, all on my side, what have I got to fear or worry about? At that moment I laugh to myself at the silliness of my worry.
I feel I have so much to say/to write but so short on time. I just didn’t want 2014 to go by without expressing my gratitude to you. I thank you for stopping by, for liking my posts, for commenting on them. I thank you for agreeing with me and even more for disagreeing with me! You have provided me with feedback, insight, information, inspiration, advice and above all acceptance.
I thank you for the smiles, hugs and love! I am here to say that there is nothing virtual about them – they are felt! They make me feel warm inside just like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. They make my heart sing a song of joy!
You make me want to be a better person! You keep me accountable!
I read this quote this morning and I think it will be perfect for me in 2015, so I am passing it along to you:
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman
Wishing you all an amazing 2015! May you realize that challenges are opportunities and that mistakes are necessary. May you wake up every morning with a smile, even if you have to force it. May you stare fear in the face and at the end of the day smile at the mirror realizing you are much stronger that you thought you were.
2015 is here, what are going to do with it? Life is short, moments are fleeting – live it up!
