Today is a brand NEW day!
Now that we are in the first quarter of 2015, have you taken the time to reflect on what you had expected for your new year as you watched the ball drop on New Year’s day? How is it going with the actual manifestation of what you expected for your amazing new year? Are you on target? Do you feel that you are off to a good start? Are you heading in the right direction?
Sometimes it is worth it to stop and reflect. Reflection has a way of keeping you on track. One way to help you with your progress is to Journal. I can’t stress it enough. Journaling is very helpful in so many ways. You will begin to keep your thoughts close to your heart when you Journal daily. You’ll find that your mind becomes clearer and more focused on your aspirations. There are no errors — everything becomes a work in progress. You can learn from every thought that you share in your Journal with yourself. The best way to keep in touch with your mental state is to record it. Yes, write it down. Meditate on why you feel the way you feel.
Pay attention to the interesting people that cross your path. Understand that sometimes the things that you are looking for are right in front of your face — literally!
It will be interesting to find you Journaling in the month of March, and discovering deep jewels during the month of April after you go back and read your March Journal notations.
Give it a try — We’ll be here waiting to hear what you find out about yourself and the process that you undertake as you search your soul.
With determination, you’ll be sure to improve not only your life, but the lives of all those who you may come in contact with this year.
You can decide to shape your life on this day in your mind, body. and soul. You can also decide to forgive others for anything that they may have done to you, said to you, or said about you that had affected you in a negative way. You can forgive them, and envision the spiritual purifying rain washing away the negative impacts that may have put a damper on your life in the past. It is never worth carrying around old luggage that weighs you down. And negative interactions in life add up to heavy burdensome luggage. You don’t need it, and you don’t want to carry that into this amazing new year.
Think on the good. Reflect on the warming love of friends and family.
Consider the kind words, the loving thoughts, the unexpected gifts of happiness.
Let your mind remember the smiles from strangers when you most needed them.
Whatever happened to you that took a little piece of your spirit just simply made room for another divinely added piece of your spirit to come into place…
Maybe you had forgotten that you were a Writer, or an Artist, or passionate about a cause long put aside.
Maybe you had forgotten that you were a Photographer who could capture the world like no one else ever has, or ever well…
And just maybe, YOU are a Healer who can lay hands on the sick, or help to mend the broken-hearted.
Maybe you were born to create a Documentary that will change the lives of many people.
Maybe your Voice is needed for songs, for motivation, for inspiration ~ you may possess a heavenly tone for uplifting those who need to hear your words of compassion, understanding, wisdom and knowledge.
God is like an umbrella ~ covering all people, places, and things.
You are loved, you are special, you are needed, and you are ‘called’ to BE just who God intended you to be.
And, who on earth can disagree about that?
Finally, Brothers and Sisters)…
Whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
Philippians 4:8 ~ AMPLIFIED BIBLE
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
Love yourself, love your life, love others, and be blessed…
THIS IS YOUR BEST YEAR BEFORE YOU!
