Greetings 2021

Happy First Monday of 2021 to all! I hope you had a lovely New Year’s and that you are quickly settling into writing 2021 as opposed to 2020! It always takes me a few days to get used to writing a new year in the beginning. Do you have the same experience?

I awoke this morning and realized that this is a new decade for me and my loved ones. A lot happened in our lives during the last decade 2010-2020 which brought about so many tears, changes and much upheaval. But I am looking forward to this new decade which comes in altogether differently with a breath of fresh optimism, love, light and healing. I am so grateful for the past decade which taught me so much even when it was so difficult. I remain blessed that what I endured during these last ten years has made me stronger, more resilient and has taught me more about life and people than I ever really intended. I’ve learned so much which allows me to help others who are in similar situations. For walking these paths is not easy and sometimes we simply need a hand to hold onto as we continue on. As always, I offer you my hand in friendship.

What I love is that I can honestly tell you that I am happy, and that I have healed from the past decade’s experiences. Overcoming so many life’s challenges without losing myself, nor my positive attitude, has been miraculous. I have had much help over the years and I am truly grateful for those who stayed and supported me, took the time to listen, to help me to heal and to inspire me to believe in love and life again. These gifts are so precious to me as are those people who reached out with kindness and caring.

I am raising my glass to you and to 2021 in greetings! May we continue to see the glass as. half full and be grateful for the glass itself which is refillable. May we hold precious those who care and love innately. May we be filled with hope, inspiration and the light of goodness as we fill our days shining our heartlights. May we never forget The Presents of Presence no matter how hectic our lives become – for this lifetime is short and is never guaranteed for a certain period of time.

So live a life that you are proud of,

a legacy of love,

that helps all with whom you connect

to feel the blessings

that your presence is to our world.

Shine On!

Always Look for Positivity

Always look for positivity. 

Though times may look harder, there may not be smooth sailing,

but never lose heart, let the challenge make you stronger and stronger.

~ Dr Anil Kumar Sinha

Innately I am a ‘the glass half full’ gal most of the time.  Even when down, I feel like a bobber in the water, I may sink, but I also find a way to rise to the surface.  I was talking with someone yesterday about how our challenges make us stronger.  To find the shimmer of positivity in every encounter, in every challenge, and in every moment when you just feel overwhelmed.

It’s not easy to do sometimes.  But it is always able to be done.

That was my message to this special person in my life.  It’s a choice to be sad, hurt, upset and angry or you can choose to find that this challenge allows you to find peace knowing that holding on to what should be is a way of keeping you down and not lifting you up.  It’s hard to ride the winds of change.  It’s not usually easy to navigate, but it can be done and sometimes you just need to ask for help and trust in God.

So that’s what we planned to do together, to weather the storm of change.

How do you deal with change?  Do you put blinders on, shut your eyes and shut down your heart?  Or do you look inside your heart to rearrange the pieces of change in order to organize them and find that perhaps they are helpful overall?

Many are going through challenges now and I understand.  There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for you.  Believe in the strength of positivity and one day you will wake up to see your heart light beaming again in full splendor, stronger than ever before and you will be grateful that you weathered the winds of change in your life for they have challenged you, strengthened you and enriched your life in ways you never thought possible.

Shine On!
