"A new year will always give us the opportunity
for a new beginning
to a beautiful life story."
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. I had a quiet, but meaningful Christmas. It was a time of reflection and connection with my family. This Christmas I had to forgive some family members that brought hurt and disappointment to my life in 2016. I had to remind myself that to forgive others is to bring the gift of peace and love into my soul. It’s not about not holding others accountable for the pain they brought into my life, it’s about loving myself enough to let that hurt go. In doing this I could let go of bad karma and welcomed more positive vibrations into my life.
As we get ready to welcome the new year I want to wish you the best and remind you that next year will provide you with the opportunity to write a new beautiful story for yourself. Know that you are amazing and that everything you desire is ready to be given to you. Believe that you are worthy of bringing positive wonderful things into your life. But also, remember that you can attract negative things into your life if you let fear take the lead. Here are my three wishes for you for 2017.
May you remember hope.
When I reflect on my desires I know that hope is one that I must hold highly. I desire for you to always remember hope, and know that with hope the impossible is always possible. Hope is part of having a sound belief system. It’s part of practicing optimism. With hope, you understand that things will fall apart, but things will also come together. Without hope, you see a gray and unloving world. You never see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that hope will guide you toward the light and never against it. Remember hope when things fall apart in 2017.
May you discover courage.
To live in fear is to live a half-life. To live a full life, you must embrace courage. There will be many doubts in 2017. There will be many moments that courage may want to come and play. Let it! I know that courage will push you to the unknown, will get you out of your comfort zone. With courage, you will discover your true essence, your strength. With courage on your side you will fulfill your destiny. In those moments of fear rediscover what you are made of. Rediscover courage.
May you practice love.
In the year to come I wish you to practice much love. To live in love is to also surrender to fear. As you embrace love you will discover peace. To live in peace is to embrace love. Remember anything that is done with love will prosper. Love is why we are here. Love is what feels good. Fear is what feels sad. So, for 2017 I wish you much peace and love.
A new year is like a blank book that you can write. It’s never too late to have a different story. It’s never too late to have a different ending to a beautiful story. Remember to keep hope alive and believe in yourself and the power of your dreams. Have the courage and strength to persevere through difficult times, but above all remember to live in love. Until next time Believe. Change. Become. and have Happy New Year!
