All New Years have an expectancy vibe within. Realizing that we each make our life what it is may be a very important realization for you. Many will be asked about their New Year’s Resolution. Yes, resolve, decide, act upon, achieve — to do what? I think about keeping my home clean and orderly, running smoothly — it is a business of course, or creating works of art, or sewing and think ahead about the spring flowers and gardening.
But since resolutions are personal, how about loving yourself just the way you are, and if you really love yourself, relationships become more cherished, and maybe the extra weight from holiday celebrations will fall away. Will you love yourself enough to be kind, compassionate, helpful to yourself? Stop judging yourself, be positive in outlook, maybe even forgive yourself. Start with loving who you are now. And one day you will feel the truth in “Today is a beautiful gift of Life. It is always now, today.”
We are wise to tend to our own self before we can be of help to others. It is important to take care of oneself especially if we care for others, children or elderly adults. If you love yourself and your life, you are in a place to help others find this.
May this be a time of love, compassion, tolerance, joy, health and prosperity for you. From my heart to yours.
I had an amazing day today. The tow truck arrived just in time for me to be able to take the other car to an exercise class. I asked Spirit for this and was blessed. I went antique browsing with my neighbor, and it always amazes me what I find when we shop together! We discovered a sweet, comfortable coffee and yogurt shop. I found items I had been searching for the past two weeks, and knew they were out there, I could feel it, and anticipated finding them. Well, today was the day I got them!!! And all was within my means.
So what is the lesson in all this? Believe. Believe in your power to create what you desire, and approach life with an expectant and appreciative heart. It is written that all is waiting to fulfill our deepest desire. We put out thoughts and words about what we will eventually receive. The circle really does come round. What you give you will get back. It is a law of the universe. Ask yourself what you are actually asking to happen. Listen to what you are putting forth in action, speech, and thoughts. It does matter.
So, be kind, generous as your means allow, pay it forward with love and gentleness.
Be ready to be amazed!
Please remember our feathered friends during this time of snow covering and cold temperatures that keep most of us wishing to stay inside. Give them your crusts of bread, seed, nuts, whatever you have to help the birds when they cannot find food because of the snow. Show kindness to others, for the walk you walk you know of, the walk others walk you don’t. So don’t suppose to know what another is thinking, assumptions are an illusion we have about others. If you want to know what is happening with someone else, ask. It is that simple. Doing this can help remove drama from your life. I would suggest a book for you to read if this makes sense to you and you wish to know more. It is “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. He also has a Facebook page. Peace and Love to all.
The first snowfall this season had the world around me looking like a snow globe. The air that was crisp is now cold, and I have a yearning to withdraw to a place of warmth. The holidays are not the same since my parents passed away, and why this year seems harder than normal is a mystery. I just may find solace in my studio. I will post next when I have a painting to share. Until then, put finding peace, light, and love on the top of your daily to-do list.
