“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, and I’m feelin’ good” … Nina Simone
Today is a fresh start, a new beginning, a Happy New Day! In fact, today you have 86,400 new beginnings, because each second offers you this, every moment holds within it the opportunity to start again, to wipe the slate clean and go forth and be the magnificent being that you are here to be! You see, we forget this a lot of the time, and we drift along with all our ‘baggage’ from yesterday and the day before, not willing to let it go, feeling bogged down with previous disappointment and discouragement… well I am inviting you to, right this minute, right now, close your eyes, take a deep breath and make a promise to yourself that YOU ARE GOING TO TREAT YOURSELF TO LIVING THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS, THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOUR GIFTS AND YOUR TALENTS, THAT YOU HAVE SOMETHING UNIQUE TO OFFER THIS WORLD THAT NOBODY ELSE CAN, THAT YOU MATTER AND THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!
You see, your whole life is a representation of how you feel about yourself and what you believe is possible. Anything that anybody has ever achieved has been the result of the individual’s belief in the possibility of it being achievable! Become aware of a time in the past when you had an idea, you felt so passionate and excited about it, you couldn’t sleep thinking about it, you could do it all day … well this is what brings ideas from the imagination into the physical realm – passion, belief, inspired action, vision, focus, excitement, a knowing within! And yes, of course the ‘inner conversation’ begins when you have this idea, there will be a chat within that will tell you all the reasons why this won’t work, why this isn’t the right time or the right place or the right circumstances. This ‘inner conversation’ can be the one thing that makes or breaks the decision to keep going or to quit. It is just ready to throw a bucket of water over your fire and watch as the flames go out! This is the point at which you can either believe the chat, or choose to ask the ‘committee’ to politely leave while you get on with the business of YOUR DREAMS! So what do YOU choose? Don’t become discouraged, KEEP GOING!
This is YOUR life, this is YOUR journey, what are YOUR dreams? You know, you can bounce back from any adversity and reinvent your life! You can believe that things can be better for you! You can adopt an attitude of gratitude and hope and positivity and love, no matter what your life looks like! I know that it can be difficult to do this sometimes, but how you interpret what you see around you is what determines how your life unfolds. Two people can be in the exact same situation, but their attitude to it offers them two different experiences. YOU are the only one that can do something about YOUR life, YOU are the only one that can get up off your ‘backside’ and change something that you perceive isn’t the way you would like it to be. YOU are the remote control, pressing the buttons with your feelings, your thoughts, your words and your actions… YOU!
So, as we begin a New Year, 2014 brings with it an abundance of awesome opportunities and adventures. Be ready to step up to your opportunities with zest and zeal, say YES TO LIFE and LIFE SAYS YES TO YOU! Life is an amazing journey, enjoy every second that brings new beginnings and ‘keep her lit’!
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
So until next time,
Love from me, Marie XXX
