January. The first month of a new year. The perfect time for new beginnings and a fresh start. Today is the first day of the rest of my life and I intend it to be the catalyst to a fantastically fulfilling future, one where I will live the grandest vision of myself and where I will inspire and give hope to others. This will be me making my stamp on the world by following my heart and living my dreams, thereby fulfilling my destiny, a true living legacy.
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.”
As the sun sets on the old year, may we all journey Onwards and Upwards on the road less travelled – following every rainbow, climbing every mountain, reaching for the stars, living life to the full, with new-found fervour and heart-stirring passion. Life truly is an amazing gift. I want to share it with you.
I feel an awesome excitement deep within me. I love my life – it’s growing into something quite magnificent. I don’t even feel like ‘me’ any more. I’m a stranger to myself. Who is this animated, inspired, wildly passionate, enthusiastic woman? I feel like a child again! I have stepped out into the glorious Light of a New Day.
May the New Year of 2015 bring to us all the fulfilment that our heart’s yearn for.
