Behold All Things Have Become New

This morning at 3am, I awoke to some words resounding in my head:

“Behold, all things have become new!!”

A new day breaks, a new year dawns – heralding new beginnings, a clean slate, a fresh start, new hopes and dreams. And absolutely no regrets!

I previously observed life through negative eyes and I dwelt on that negativity – on all the things that were wrong in the world. And what we focus upon….grows!

It’s all a matter of perception – we see what we expect to see, what we’ve been conditioned to see. But we can change our perception. We can start to look for the best in everything and everyone.

I’ve had a mind makeover, and the seeds of beauty have been planted therein. I see the world through ‘new’ eyes, since I started to look at life through a lens. It’s like a spotlight on the natural world. I see beauty everywhere and in everyone. I dwell on it, focus on it, and I watch it grow- beauty springing up everywhere I look!!

“Change yourself to change your world.
Change your thoughts, your attitudes and your beliefs,
and your world will change accordingly.”

Wishing you all a beauty-filled 2015.

“Look  to this day, for it is Life, the very life of Life;
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence…
the Bliss of Growth, the Glory of Action, the Splendour of Beauty.

For Yesterday is but a Dream,
and Tomorrow only a Vision;
But Today well lived makes Yesterday a Dream of Happiness
and Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the Salutation to the Dawn.”
