In saying goodbye to 2017, I wanted to write a post. Somehow neatly placing a bow on a year of further self discovery for me. These past few weeks I have been reflecting on the certain qualities that I would like to enhance. It seems that new year’s resolutions are usually based upon changing a “bad” characteristic or habit. I want to continue the good and I am highlighting those aspects of myself that bring me joy.
I read an interesting quote yesterday that said “If the glass is half empty, get a smaller glass!” As simple as this advice seems, it indicates that we have the power to change our circumstances by our outlook and action, but how often do we. My action for 2018 will be to make sure I always have the smallest glass so I can see all the “fullness” in my life.
I plan on continuing my journey of implementing simplicity in my life as well as continuing the slow process of removing non serving beliefs and changing those ingrained thought processes that do not bring me joy. And it’s hard, very hard, I have been doing it for a majority of my life. Most importantly, I plan on experiencing more moments of my life that make me pause, catch my breath and say thank you. Those moments are shared with the ones I love and mean so much to me.
Wishing all of you a heartfelt year of joy, simplicity and moments that have you catch your breath.
A few moments that have caught my breath……
