With all the buzz and busy years, fill your life with blessings and treat yourself with some gifts to rejuvenate your soul. Life is filled with people: those who have it in for you, and those who only want the best for you, some who need you, and others you need in return.
Harmony is the key, but not if it’s always at the expense of what you really want. And sometimes, you’ll only discover what that is if you ask yourself what you would do, think, and feel if no one else were around to sway you. Give yourself some alone time and make it slick. Swim a few laps, or watch the clouds roll by. Revel in your thoughts and feelings, and your life’s passions will unfold.
Life sucks-sometimes. Other times, it’s pretty darn swell if you bothered to notice. Look back on the year that was and say thanks for all the good things that happened. Don’t forget the small stuff such as the smell of coffee or fat-free desserts. Better yet, imagine life without these simple pleasures. Now you get the picture.
We all make mistakes. But only a few have the balls to grit their teeth, pick themselves up, and keep going. Indeed, letting your mistakes-or fearing of making them-paralyze you would be the biggest mistake of all. Try a little experiment. Speak up, try a new sport, or chat up with your friends. Discover how liberating it feels.
Anger and resentment are ugly words. They are even uglier feelings. Letting go and forgiving others don’t just let them off the hook. It gives you a sense of closure and peace. And while you’re at it, be less judgmental of your own transgressions. You’ll be amazed by how different the world seems once you’ve eased up on yourself.
