Happy 2018!

Happy 2018!

The beginning of 2018 starts with a full moon and 4 degrees in my back yard.  The weatherman says we’ll have a high of 14…brrrrrrrrr! For me, this full moon is like 2018 — there’s a bright spot in the moment and the rest remains unclear.

Why does January 1 – a new year – inspire and motivate us to change, to make improvements in our lives and to reset our priorities?  Do you feel the positive energies? It’s really just another winter day, similar to yesterday and the day before.  Yet somehow this day inspires hope.

Imagine what it would be like to live each and every day waking up with that same positive energy, that same inspiration, motivation and hope.

Imagine focusing our efforts on what’s really important to us first instead of waiting until the projects are done or we earn enough money or…or…or.

We don’t have to imagine a new day as each begins every 24 hours with no action on our part.  It’s just another day, a day we can choose to feel inspired, motivated and hopeful just as if it were New Year’s Day.

I wish you all a happy New Year’s Day…each and every day!

    “Imagine focusing our efforts on what’s really important to us first instead of waiting until the projects are done or we earn enough money or” – this is exactly how I feel, Kathy! We all too often put off feeling happy or enough or at peace until that “thing” is complete, whatever it might be. What a good reminder that right now, as I sit here after just getting home from work and checking on frozen pipes and doing some grocery shopping, I can just sit here and relax and enjoy a cup of tea and just be grateful that I have a warm house and my health and enough food in my fridge. We could go on about the things that are left undone, the chores to do, the people to contact, but we can also choose to just be here and breathe. Thank you for the reminder! With Love, Maya
