Happy New Year: Resolutions and Reflections

 Happy New Year!

Before we Jump into 2011, I want to suggest that you do something different from the traditional ‘New Year Resolutions’. Or, at least,
Do something else first
before you plan next year. Whatever you’ve achieved this year, and whatever challenges you’ve experienced, it really is worth sitting back and enjoying the journey every single step of the way by reliving magic moments in your life.

Find yourself a quiet few minutes…and lets specifically direct your focus within that time ... Where ever you are, Whatever you may be doing. Just notice the effects that this focus has on how you’re feeling – your emotions and sense of well being.  Watching, Listening, Being in the moment.

You see, a big part of life is celebrating the magic moments. I believe that at the end of your life you’re not going to remember everything… but you’ll remember certain moments…You may achieve a lot of things, but it’s the moments that’ll make you feel fulfilled. So think about some of your magic moments from the last year … what are some moments that come to mind for you….?

What are you grateful for? Who do you love? Who loves you?

Maybe there are some moments that have happened this year that have been special to you…A great conversation.. a moment when you really connected with somebody at a deep level. Somebody’s smile, laughter, maybe it was a moment where you came up with a great idea…. Or completed a challenging project.  An inspiring movie or book, something you saw, heard or felt that was just special in some way… how about a piece of music that really touched you? Flood yourself with the great feelings that come those magic moments.
Feel grateful for the ears that get to hear wonderful conversations, the eyes that allow you to see the smiles… the opportunities, the challenges, all of it… Take it all in…

And now what do you love about THIS moment, today?

Whatcan you be proud of already?
What are you excited about?
What could you be excited about if you really wanted to be?

Be grateful. Acknowledge how blessed you are. Bask in it.
And as you think about all these things, celebrate your life! And celebrate it BIG!

Happy New Year!

Abundant Blessings!
