HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome to a new year, a fresh start, a clean slate.
I feel like I've just hatched from an egg!
Things feel better already, don't they?
"Begin today. Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy."
I'm finally using the Instagram I started (one year ago today) regularly.
I've posted several pics from last nights New Years Eve celebration. That was the first NYE in years I've spent with my family rather than friends. Tradition is important, but so is NEW. So we combined the two. We made reservations at our favorite New Years restaurant, the same one we've been to for years, only this time with the family. Then came back to our house. It was perfect.
The state I was in coming out of / entering a new year last year was toxic. This year is completely opposite. I've realized now that if your rebirth is in chaos and negativity you set yourself right up for a downward spiral.
Today I was born in lightness. In air. In happiness.
I wrote one last blurb of the year on my facebook yesterday:
An ending & a beginning: If you know me or follow my blog, then you know that 2012 was the worst year of my life. I am so glad that in a matter of hours 2012 will no longer exist, and that I made it through! There really is no way out, but through. I came out transformed. It was my 365 day crash course in life's hardest lessons. It was the year of loss and impossible goodbyes, but also the year of the soul. I found lessons in everything and grew more in a short time than I would have thought possible. It was the start of a major transformation and rebirth. I leap into the new year a new person. Nice to meet you, universe. 2013 is my time to dig deeper into the unexplored parts of myself that I've left waiting. It's time to fuel my spiritual scientist. It's the year to create, in all ways. To express in new mediums. To share my words further, and to learn all I can. To follow the lead each time my heart pulls me toward something. To remember I am responsible for my own happiness and happiness is something I can chose each new day. I am so grateful to embark with my family connected to each other.
Goodbye. Hello. Forward...forward now. ♥
