Sacred Reflection

This is my favorite night of the year.  A perfect, brand new beginning, when all things seem possible and a chance to start anew.  Time to reflect on all of the precious gifts I have received this year and to humbly give thanks for all that I have and all that is yet to come.

With love and gratitude I wish you all a joyous New Year!

Accentuate the Positive

For me the Law of Attraction is just like the old song "Accentuate the Positive".  The more I focus on what is going right the better everything goes. 

Something I realized recently is that I have always had a tendency to exaggerate my stories.  Not really telling a lie but more like enhancing the truth.  I thought for a very long time that I needed to stop doing that but now I realize that is part of what has helped me move forward in my life. 

I was not willing to be that person paralyzed by her circumstances.  I knew that somehow, someway I would break free and live the life I always dreamed of, telling a better story helped me to do that.   Now when I tell my improved version of the tale I know I am just accentuating the positive.

Work-Life Balance

Sometimes it seems as though work is interfering with my personal life.  When I start to feel like I want to quit my job and do something totally different I realize how much inspiration comes from working and the people I get to interact with.  The relationships I develop are very important to me and it gives me a such a great perspective on what others have to contend with in their lives.

Many organizations talk about employees needing to maintain a good work-life balance but in reality very few of them really support it.  I continue to strive to find that balance in my own life and appreciate very much being around others and learning from their examples.

How do I know I love you?

I know I love you when I wish for your happiness instead of my own.  When I want you to have your heart’s desire, not mine.  When I think of you and realize that all I want is what you want, even when it isn’t me - that’s how I know I love you. 

Sensitivity and Social Media

The whole concept of Social Media is fascinating to me, being able to communicate and interact with people all over the world with the click of a button is astounding.  I love to share and participate in many aspects of this phenomenon but I do have to be careful about getting too involved.  I am a very sensitive person and do get hurt when someone posts a harsh comment or reply to me.  It still surprises me the things that people will say with the anonymity of the internet and feel totally justified in doing it. 

I have been told all of my life that I need to be tougher but that is not the person I want to be.  I am very happy with who I am and if that means getting my feelings hurt from time to time - so be it.  My gentle nature allows me to share something very special with others on and off-line and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  So for me Social Media is simply a great way to share with other like-minded souls where ever they may be.
