As we approach the beginning of 2012, here’s my New Year *Advice*: Be sure to pack a sturdy set of boundaries, a few new perspectives, and a bit of patience. Leave the fear behind you, don’t listen to negative thinkers (they aren’t very inspiring, anyway), focus on what you want, and know that you have the ability to DO whatever you want. Happy New Year. Happy New YOU.
Allow your mind to think outside the box. When your relationship is navigating through turbulence and white rapids, stay in your boat. If you insist on traveling upstream- against the flow, your chances of survival are minimal. If you just follow the flow, and don’t resist, you’ll be in calm waters before you know it. Look at what is really important to you in your relationship.
Journey THROUGH life. It’s not a destination, it’s an adventure. Jump off the curb once in a while, dance under the moon, laugh out loud, resolve to do at least ONE thing in the upcoming year that is going to force you to step outside of your comfort zone….and create NEW comfort zones.
Most of all realize that CHANGE IS GOOD. What served your life fifteen years ago may need to be tossed to allow the way for NEW opportunities that serve you better. As human beings, none of us welcome change without some kind of doubt that accompanies it. I challenge you to douse the doubts. (They are only fear in disguise). Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If you don’t have any dreams – CREATE them!
Make a few resolutions… I don’t mean the “I’ll stop smoking” or “I’ll lose 30 pounds”. I am talking about true personal resolutions… how many novels do you want to read? Is there a special place you’d like to visit? Are you going to make a real attempt to TALK more and TEXT less? These are the resolutions that ensure personal growth.
The New Year offers us all the opportunity for perspective. We can choose the attitude we want! We either embrace it fully, or observe it from a cynical mind set. Since the latter is not a lot of fun, and one of MY resolutions is to laugh more, I will choose to embrace 2012 with joy.
And, I also have a theory on this end of the world stuff…. Those Mayans that created that calendar? They just got tired of carrying stones.
The angels assure us: IT’S ALL GOOD. ALL. Yep, that’s right – ALL GOOD.
Happy New Year, Happy New YOU!
Sending you angels,
