Time to say farewell to 2016 and welcome to 2017! This is the time of the year when we pause and reflect on all that we gained and all that has changed and we are hopeful for what is coming next on the horizon.
There are so many things on the list that I’m grateful for in my 2016 gratitude jar. At the top of the list is my family! My parents and siblings who are healthy and I was able to see them all several times. When parents age it is a blessing that they are a part of your life. My siblings who both are busy yet we still managed to maintain a connection. I wish we were closer but I understand the demands of their careers and personal lives. I’m grateful for my beautiful new home! Every morning I wake up to such a gorgeous view. I’m grateful that I live in a city chosen by my heart! I’m close to the ocean and I get to go to the beach whenever I want and I go a lot. I’m grateful for Drum Circle Sundays! I’m grateful for my job and my professional co workers! I’m grateful for Luna my precious furry friend who gives me so much love and joy! I’m grateful for warm weather and sunshine in December. It does feel weird to have 80 degrees temperature in December although it has been a little chilly. I’m grateful for so many new beginnings this year and also for my beautiful circle of friends back home. I’m grateful I get to see so many of you when I visit and I’m so happy to stay connected. I’m grateful for all the travel I’ve done this year. Victoria, Nova Scotia, Toronto, Dallas, New York, Chicago, Birmingham, Austin, The European tour…. so many blessings….
I pray that in 2017 I can truly focus on my health and well being. More self care, eat healthier, excel use more, try two new hobbies, take a photography class so I can continue with my passion of taking picture of sunsets and sunrises. Take a cruise to Alaska or Hawaii or someplace I’ve not visited. And most important . I want to keep on loving people, spreading kinds and compassion and live in the moment. Be happy and joyful! Embrace it all!
Love and deep soul blessings!
Happy New Year 2017!
Prayers for more peace in the World! Amen!
Prayers for all those who are sick may your pain and suffering be alleviated Amen!
