Here's the thing… I really do feel that believing something wonderful is about to happen is a fundamental key to life. Call it childlike, naiveté or realism but it's a way of being that keeps life interesting because I just know something amazing is right around the corner and good things do come true if you believe (is that a song?).
It's a New Year and I can't believe it's 2015. (Don't you remember back in the 90s feeling like 2015 was eons away?) January 1, always prompts contemplation and introspection. So how have you faired over the years?
What do you want to do differently this year? What do you want to experience? Where do you want to travel? What measure of success will you use as a barometer for fulfillment? Are you where you want to be? How do you feel when you reflect on your life over the last decade or two?
To always expect that something good is going to happen means to know FAITH!
When I look back and evaluate the seeming delay in the manifestation of my wishes, I can see that my faith wavered- I stopped believing. Does that ever happen to you? All that matters is that you believe in your dream even if others don't.
This year I challenge you as I challenge myself. I challenge you to keep the faith and believe in yourself.
I give you permission to never give up on your dreams, hopes and wishes.
If you are still hoping for restored health, confidence, the love of your life, accolades, financial freedom or that trip around the world, I want to remind you on this first day of a new set of 365 to claim it, have faith and always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.
Many blessings to you...
