The normal thing would be to write “Happy New Year” as the title, but I opted out of that. Not because I don’t want you all to be happy, I do. I just wish for more than that, or to be more specific: I wish for happiness every day for everyone, not just as we start a New Year.
Why do we think everything will be different the day after New Years Eve? It won’t, it is just another day. We should always strive to be a better version of ourselves, every new day. So don’t wait with your promises, wishes, hopes and dreams. Live them each and every day, while you can.
Some say that they are now closing the door to 2014. Mine is still wide open, and will continue to be so. So if you have been in my life 2014, I am grateful for your presence. Please walk through the door with me into 2015.
This past year has been difficult at times. I had to say farewell to a loved one, and I have been fighting a chronic illness every hour of every day. I have known emotional and physical pain to the limits. Only the closest ones in my life have seen me at my darkest hours, and those were not pretty moments. What they are though is life. With all the sorrow and pain from this past year, there have been many uplifting amazing moments as well thrown into the mix. Life is just that: a mix of ups and downs.
So I am not closing my door to this past year, as I need it to be open to remind me of my lessons in life. All the bad with all the good are now memories. Memories that I will carry with me into the New Year. The memories are experiences that makes me ME. To close the door on 2014 would be like closing my heart. I choose to live life with an open heart, and plan to dare to open it more and more as I live.
I will walk into 2015 with an open book that is my life so far. I treasure all that life has taught me through the highs and lows. I ride on the highs, and rest on the lows. My life is not a closed book, only some closed chapters with a story still being written.
I hope that you will be a part of the chapters of my life next year. Who knows where life will take us. Let’s walk into 2015 with our hearts full of love. Love for all that we are, and for all that we can become.
With love as the center of intention, the first chapter of 2015 is off to a promising start!
From My Heart to Yours!
