It is the beginning of a new year, “a fresh start”, as many would call it. Although, in reality, every day is a fresh start, there is something about the end of a year or first day of the upcoming year that brings a tingle to your being. It makes many of us feel invincible and as most like to express: “This will be my year”.
Ringing in the new year this year was a little different than usual for me. I rang it in with most of my loved ones in a different country. This gave me an even larger sense of invincibility when greeting 2017. Looking over the mountains, in which we have none of back where I reside, seeing the incredible amounts of opportunity and endless beauty that the world and life itself has to offer was such an incredible feeling; a real eye opener.
Now, for myself, 2016 was not a terrible year as many claimed it to be. It was a year of much loss, but it just made me yearn for more. I learned plenty which allowed me to grow and for me, growth is one of the best things one can experience in order to proceed moving forward and further succeed. Ultimately, I am so incredibly excited for this year. I believe its going to be a great one for many of us. As long as you put the work in, the result should be nothing short of amazing. So, Happy 2017 to everyone and make sure you make every single day count!
Sometimes we overlook the wonderful things that begin to come together for us only through the lens of fear. We must remind ourselves, at these times, that not everything that can go wrong will.
Energy doesn’t lie.
Ever been in a situation where your intuition is signaling one thing, but you go against its warning? How did that end up for you? I’ll guess, probably not as you had hoped. Perhaps you found yourself self-pitying once things got sour. Now, have you ever been in a situation where you were presented with that bad energy and decided to steer clear? That choice probably served you damn right.
If you’ve ever had to question whether or not someone should be a part of your life, the answer is within the question itself. If the concern ever persists, there is usually always a reason. Trust the vibe and cut the imaginary chain. Life is too full of unbelievably good energies to allow anyone or anything to eliminate you from having it; And good vibrations will always follow good vibrations.
“Life is too short”. We read and hear it everywhere or we say it all of the time, not because it is a cliche, but because it is the cold hearted truth. Exactly how much do we actually let it sink in and influence the way we live? Probably not nearly as much as we should. We tend to take people and our blessings for granted far too often, forgetting that at any given time, all we will be left with are mere memories. So I say: appreciate everything beautiful, love unconditionally and live blissfully. For there is no such thing as forever, only a here and now.
Do you ever wonder, “what if”? Not so much in the form of regret, but more so as, “where would I be? How different would my life be right now if..”. Our entire lives are made up of decisions, whether they be major or minor. We sometimes have to choose from one or more options to be the best one for us. But how, regardless of how happy we may believe to be, do we ever know we made the right one?
