I Love New Beginnings!

I love new beginnings – filled with hopeful expectancy and the promise of good things to come. I have so many wonderful memories of new beginnings – from the everyday (as a child wearing a new outfit on the first day of school) to the extraordinary (the amazing births of my children).

 

We often take for granted our everyday moments, without realizing that there is beauty and newness available to us. Just as the sun rises each morning, we have the opportunity to welcome a fresh start to our lives.

 

I invite you to reflect on your memories of new beginnings. How can you do this? Sit back and close your eyes. Use all your senses. Recreate in your mind and your heart the feelings of a positive and happy memory. There is no right way or wrong way. Enjoy this – it will not only be fun, but you will create a flow of positive energy in your mind and body that will feel fantastic.

 

Let today be a new beginning for you!

Gratitude

gratitudeGratitude has been in the press quite a bit over the last year or so. “Gratitude is an attitude” and other such expressions seem to make it into our everyday sayings…well, not quite everyday, but more often than ever before.

 

So what does gratitude mean to you? Is it hard to find the time to give thanks for the many blessings we have….especially the everyday ones that get taken for granted?

 

Here is one of my favorite quotes: “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

 

I invite you to take a moment – TODAY – and reflect on something that gladdens your heart. Then let your heart fill with gratitude. Feel the positive energy shift – and have yourself a wonderful day!

 

What are you grateful for today?
