Happy 2016!

Letting go of the past, and looking forward to a bright future at the beginning of this new year. Each day is also a new beginning. Isn't that wonderful? And that is why it is SO critical to never give up!

Whatever you did, or did not do, last year is behind you. Whatever your successes, whatever your failures, all of that is behind you now. If 2015 was a little tough on you, all of its challenges are in your past and you have the choice to start this new year with a clean slate. If 2015 was wonderful for you, today is the day that you start fresh to create another amazing year for yourself.

I am starting this new year with the anticipation of wonderful new adventures in this coming year. God has been so good to me, helping me through each of the challenges of the past year! And so I begin this new year with gratitude for all of the goodness brought to me in spite of any appearances to the contrary.

This year I will fix my mind upon the good things that I desire and the very deep reasons why they carry importance to me. This year I will trust that I can attract what I need to make the positive changes in my little corner of the world that I most want to see. This year, I will trust that synchronicity will be the grace in my life. This year I will act for good work life balance. This year I will treat myself with the love that I deserve, encouraging myself to get proper amounts of sleep, rest and exercise, food and drink, work and play. These are not resolutions. These are my true desires, the desires of my heart, and this year I will dwell on these desires and the deep, true reasons behind them.

What about you? Will you join me?

    Check into Hostgator’s Hatchling Package which is very cost effective. That is what I purchased and a friend set up WordPress on it for me, so that part was cost free.

    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some
    pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead
    of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
