The New Year is Here…

Written by on January 2, 2006 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

And so are our dreams, our aspirations and our desires. So let’s answer them with an authentic conviction.

I spent the past three nights and four days with my youngest daughter and nephew, who was born only two weeks after my little girl. We had a blast. There was indoor gymnastics and Christmas Magic at Rocky Ridge Park. We had streamers and silly string (not such a great idea, but loads of fun), balloons and assorted noise makers. Most of all, we had each other.

I never threw a little party for New Year’s Eve before, but I’m absolutely hooked. I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the new year than with loved ones, and especially young ones who know how to have fun without needing to resort to any kind of intoxication to help them loosen up.

I didn’t do any writing during the time I had them, and actually stayed off the computer during this time, too! It felt right to say good bye to the old year and welcome in the new, not divided among projects or deadlines, but to totally be where I was at.

There’s plenty of time for projects. I’ll be getting to them real soon. This week I’ll have my mixing board set up, so I can start to record new podcasts. AND I bought a new set of guitar strings. Yup, I’m picking the guitar back up after not having played it for years, and never having learned it very well, to begin with.

Doesn’t matter. I decided I’m going to learn this year.

What do you want to do? It doesn’t have to be practical, and it doesn’t matter if it is. All it has to be is something that’s genuine.

Keeping the dream isn’t hard…not when you consider how difficult it is to live through life without keeping one.

Here’s to 2006. I have good feelings about this year.

Many blessings,

Support the Work of Love
