|New Year - 2018|
My takeaways this year?
The days go by fast. However, quality over quantity means that easing into the day is a sacred rite, and a chance to start on a positive note. What we think and say during these waking moments drives the direction of the day.
Big decisions need time - sleep on it, then decide.
Focus more attention on what the world needs more of - every day! This is a personal decision.
Complaining zaps good energy away and does not solve problems. I try to sidestep this tendency - there are so many better ways to spend my time!
Frozen Blueberries do not work in the pancake batter unless they are patiently thawed first. While on this subject – (note to self) - put a rubber band on the container of fresh blueberries when you take them camping!
Keep looking up! Stay positive - but when that warning light keeps going off, pay attention. Intuition is at work!
Time spent outside makes problems seem smaller - this goes double at the beach!
Feeling judged is usually a sign of judging others too much.
Owning the moment means being present no matter the circumstances. Each experience is a stepping-stone on the path, skipping too many “steps” may cause one to stumble.
Strive for contentment, but most of all, notice it.
Put forth intent, on purpose and deliberately! This is a huge and important step towards achieving what is most important to us!
Every year brings new discoveries, and chances to learn even more. This IS the “abundance” in a life lived fully.
When the tides change, you can swim against the current, or get out of the water and walk along the shore.
Expect Miracles! (Look for them).
Direction matters more then the speed at which one travels.
Finally, and I learn and re-learn this every year, but it bears worth repeating - The best parts of Life are usually not about reaching the destination…
May we know Peace, Love, and Joy in 2018!
