A Fresh Start

Every New Year brings a “Fresh Start”

As I end the year 2015, I again see how precious life in itself is.  We all strive so much to have it all, do it all and be it all.  The one thing I have realized in my own life is that life is a gift that sometimes seems to be missed.  This year I witness two very dear friends leaving this earth much too early.  I witness their struggles and their fight to just have another day.  Their cries for “I should of, if only”, but none of that could give back the life that they were losing.

We forget that living another day is a blessing and that what we make of it is what’s important.  As life has gotten faster, busier and more expensive we still forget that having another day, breathing another breath is what truly matters.  So when you making these New Year’s promises don’t be so hard on yourself.  How about saying “this year I will make it my best year. I will do more to forgive myself to help others and remember when my feet touch the ground, I will have gratitude for another day.” Forget what didn’t happen and the past year that lies just where it should, behind you.  You don’t walk backward so why to, look backward.  This quote was shared with me and I feel it fitting for all to read.

The reason some people have turned against you & walked away from you without reason has nothing to do with you.  It is because they have been removed from your life because they cannot go where you are going next.  They will only hinder you in your next level.  They have already served their purpose in your life.  Let them go and keep moving.  Greater is coming.”

The Resolution that matters most is how to become a better version of yourself. “How can I invest in myself? forgive me.”  Don’t let the inner voice control what the heart is truly telling you.  Say “YES” to life and try something new.

Consider asking yourself these questions:

What story (or stories) do I need to stop telling myself?

Who do I need to forgive once and for all?

What do I need to release from my life in order to feel free?

What behaviors or habits would I like to change?

What behaviors or habits am I willing to accept and embrace?

What new adventures do I want to experience?

Where would I like to invest more of my time and energy?

Don’t be afraid to live your life, to speak how you feel and to honor what is yours.  Respect yourself.  Remember the most important relationship you will ever have, is with “YOURSELF” Find out who you are.

Below are a few links that I found great starters for this year of “Your Best Self”

My hope and wish for you all is to fulfill your own inner calling.  To live your “BEST LIFE”, whatever that is.  As you start the beginnings of a new week, instead of “It’s only Monday” try saying thank you for another day, another breath, my health, my family, my job, the stranger who smiled at me and me at him.  Don’t wait for Friday to be happy, start on Monday.  When you give a smile, your who world smiles back.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for a wonderful year of support and kindness.  I know 2016 will be your “Best”.  Don’t forget to keep telling yourself that. “GREATER IS COMING” 

With much love

Peace of I
