Child having fun


As this year comes to a close I need to write down everything that I accomplished during the last twelve months. Despite it being a hard year to get through - full of bumps, aches, delays and disappointments; I know I can push past all the rubble to discover the moments that filled my life with love. I finished so many wonderful books this year. I allowed music to pick me up off the hard and dirty ground I had collapsed upon. I fell into writing my heart out, and the most significant light filled moment for me? Starting and continuing a daily meditation practice.

This year has been bursting with lessons.

I embraced, quite unwillingly I must admit, a lot of falls this year; however I kept getting back up because I understood the lessons were inevitable and so meaningful. This year has been focused on many new beginnings and preparations for, I believe, an incredibly powerful 2014 for me. I felt like a child this year, setting out on this part of my life with a beginnerís mind. Taking everything as it came to me, as if it were absolutely sparkling with freshness. Like Iíd never seen it all before. And truth be told I never had.

Something I want to take with me into next year...

Approaching all circumstances with a beginnerís mind. Embracing the child within and diving into everything with flamboyant curiosity and absolutely no hesitations or speculations. It really brings out the most in every experience; the lessons are so much more meaningful and your energy becomes infectious, beaming to every single person around.

I already know that next year I am beginning brand new endeavours. I am excited, nervous and ready. Most of all I am ready. I think if you shout out to the universe how ready you are for a change in your life, the universe will answer you quite quickly. If no one knows youíre ready, then nothing extravagant will come your way. And even despite the fact that you may be ready, things can hit you unexpectedly. Thatís why preparation is worth it. It can even be as simple as always being prepared for a new day: dressed, fed and burning to go. You have to be prepared for the luck of the Universe. For good luck and for bad luck. In the bad luck there is a good lesson to be learned, together with growth and a strengthening of the soul.

Be playful about your preparation.

Donít be too hard on yourself. Open your eyes wide like a child and embrace everything that is coming to you because you are worth it. Ask many, many questions. Explore further and listen. You can do nothing with new experiences if you forget to stop and listen.

So as this beautiful year closes its final curtains before the world and takes its last bow, spare a bit of time to reflect on the past twelve months. Use some time to prepare yourself for the new year. Oh, and have a bit of fun. Actually a lot of fun You deserve it, and anything that makes you feel good needs to be done more often, right?
