happy new year 2022!

What if you just devoted this year to loving yourself more?

We’ve had an incredible era; living through a pandemic, inconceivable weather events, being disconnected from and losing loved ones, this has been a challenging period.

I was watching a show the other day and the main character was tried with unbelievable challenges, one after the other, to the point of making her incredibly numb.  But she never stopped fighting for her little girl. Because she knew they deserved better.

I forgot I had the same fight in me. 

It’s easy to forget that fight when a frequent traveller can no longer fly; when we’re told “stay home.” It’s gets harder when the airplanes are grounded because we are making each other sick.  Yet more challenging when we were told we couldn’t see our loved ones for fear of infecting them.  Add to that unbalanced vaccine distribution, heat domes, record forest fires, atmospheric rivers, hurricane activity, flooding, supply chain issues, crazy inflation, political strife none of us ever imagined, and cities falling before our eyes, we’ve had an incredulous year!

In the beginning of the pandemic, we kept hearing (and using) the term “unprecedented.”  What else can be used to describe situations that 95% of us haven’t lived through? How do we even begin to understand and make progress through such situations without using words like “unparalleled?”

However daunting all of this is, can you imagine what could be possible if we changed the narrative from “I can’t even do/see/visit/go…” to “could I show myself more love today than I did yesterday?”

So, what if you just devoted this year to loving yourself more?
Can you think of everything that is and could be possible for you?

And if we all did that, we could shift the common wavelengths from negative to positive, because I am sure that we could all use more hope and infinitely more love.

Happy New Year fellow earthlings!

May your 2022 be far better than your 2021 and may it be filled with love.

A New, Happy Year! My wishes for all…

To all celebrating and welcoming in the New Year, I wish you a happy start to 2013.

My wish for you is that you find peace and joy in all good things and that abundance in all good things be yours.

My wishes for the world are these:

That we give thanks and feel gratitude for the abundance of blessings that are upon us every day.  That every day begins with a new opportunity to give thanks.

That we begin to welcome and be open to the spiritual paradigm shift of our wonderful universe.  Too many of us are steeped in cultural, behavioural and religious dogma. Let us be open to receiving and being grateful for what we receive.

That elected officials participate in ‘doing the right thing,’ as opposed to holding steadfast to egotistical constraints.

That victims of horrendous crimes are not re-victimized because of the cultural barriers that prevent laws from being upheld.

That governments of countries experiencing civil strife and civil war open themselves up to dialogue.  And remain open to solutions.

That poverty and disparity be vanquished.

That we continue (and some of us begin) taking better care of planet Earth.  Quite frankly, it’s the only one we’ve got!  It makes sense to respect our little blue dot.

That people begin to say what they mean and mean what they say.  That we begin to move away from “what will people think?” and begin moving towards “will this feel good in my soul?”

That we put an end to bullying and domestic violence.  No child should have to consider, even for a moment, what his or her life would look like if he or she were no longer alive.  No person suffering any kind of violence should have to.

That we put colour barriers aside and reach for the commonalities that bind us all; we are all human.  We all eat, sleep, excrete waste, we all take up space (on this little blue dot) and we all, for the most part, experience life.

That we understand the need for financial security and stability.

You have within you the power to create the brilliant future that is meant to be yours.

My wish for you is that you use everything within you to make that a reality for yourselves.

My wish for all of you is that you live a life wherein joy rising greets you in the morning and gratitude for the abundance of blessings in your life gives rest to your body at night.

Have a wonderful 2013!!
