Blessed day all ~
Hoping this day finds.....
-your wallet full of pictures of loved ones (as people are more precious than money)
-your body in good health and skilled to take on the days tasks (for without your health you have nothing)
-your heart full compassion for those who have less than you (no matter how little you think you have, no doubt there are others less fortunate)
-your spirit warmed by loving family and friends (as clothes are simple commodities that can easily be replaced)
As we wrap up 2010 it is appropriate to reflex on the past year with sorrow, excitement, thankfulness, graciousness and more. We lost friends, jobs and family along the way - yet we gained renewed spirit and resilience for life and its many circles. Where one door closes another one opens. There is a purpose behind hardship and sorrow, whether it be a call to action for the greater good or simply to help us see opportunity where we didn't previously. Our growth and development through this process may vary, however, know that you will come out stronger in the end - as long as you don't give up! Maintain a positive attitude, or seek out others who can help guide you in a positive direction. It is ok to ask for help.
So, with renewed spirit, what are your hopes and dreams for 2011 and beyond? Write them down. Take action steps to get there, one way or another. You can always modify along the way. Don't allow the work "can't" to be part of your vocabulary. Switch to "I can" and "I will" and guess what? Things will begin to change for the better.
I have faith in you!
Blessings and Namaste,
