Year's End

Well, here we are again … the end of one year and the start of another … I once heard someone say, "And just one more trip around the sun," … Interesting way to look at it, don’t you think? Points out the cyclical nature of our lives to me ...
I've gotten into the habit of taking stock of what hasn’t worked in the past year and surrendering it for release and healing. So for many years now, every New Year’s Eve (I can’t remember how or when it started) I write a list of everything I want eliminated from my life and then burn it. 

I can remember on one particular night having gone to the movies with my friend John and we ended up burning our lists standing in a parking lot!and burned our papers!

New Year may be synonymous with Resolutions and Goals … But the real truth is that each and every new day can actually be seen and used as a new opportunity to begin fresh. As Allan Collins says, "You are literally reborn every time you wake up." 

The thing about making plans and setting goals is that they focus on what we need “To Do” ... to Achieve ... to Accomplish ... to Succeed … and while those aren't necessarily bad things, I have become acutely aware that much of the "Doing" of human beings is often an attempt to avoid the real Matter at Hand.

And that Matter is our heART … our Spirit … Our Essence ...our Authentic SELF

So, as we end what has been a very challenging year for many of us … and look forward to 365 fresh, new days ahead with the sense of the limitless Hope, Anticipation, Wonder they possess …

Think about this ... How you would like to BE in 2014? Who are you, really? What really matters to you?

How you would like to FEEL ... about yourself ... your loved ones ... your purpose?

Write about it ... paint, draw, collage about it. Begin to HONOR yourSELF in a whole new way ... a 2014 kind of way!

Wishing you all the happiest, healthiest, most prosperous and blessed year ahead!!!
