Cheers! To a Brand New One!
New year’s day is such an incredible day, a miracle even.
It feels like a miracle because no matter how much I screwed up, every new years it’s like I’m given a brand new year, no jinx on it, no miles on, it doesn’t smell like cigarettes or smoke, there’s nothing spilled on it. It’s Brand New!
And I think to myself; “I can’t believe I'm getting another one of these, didn’t you see what I did with the last one?” “I made a bunch of mistakes.
And Life Laughs and Whispers:
“Who cares? I’m giving you a Brand New one”
As said by one of my favorite writers Elizabeth Gilbert, I believe that we all have hidden treasures buried inside of us. Now I don’t know what’s hidden within you. You yourself may barely know, although I suspect you’ve caught glimpses. I don’t know your secret talents, your longings your desires and your capabilities, but I surely know that something wonderful is sheltered inside of you.
And in the past year, I also found a little something that was sheltered inside of Me! After numerous years, 2017 became the one year in which I discovered one of my own hidden treasures.
Are you dying to know what that is? Because I lived 31 years to find out…
It's the passionate feeling I get from creating connections…
And I don't mean Superficial, putting on masks, smiling small talk and pretending "everything is just jolly" encounters. I am talking about genuine, heartfelt connection.
And the way I experienced this in its most profound existence is with the connectedness while reading, writing and sharing my writing.
So what does this mean? Really?
I have the house, the job, the title, and what is the thing that lights me up?
No, it’s in the moments I feel connectedness within my heart.
So when people ask me what I want in this new year, I will answer them “Nothing”
Nothing but love and connection.
It matters how I love Me, how I love Others, how I treat Others and most of all how I Give
So here it is!! A whole new year! Right in front of your doorstep!
So come on, On your feet! Rise Rise Rise!
Grace is calling
