I was not able to say my "Happy New Year" at the beginning of the year because I was feeling under the weather. A germ made its way inside me, and brought me to my knees. Well, now that it is over, and I have said goodbye to tissues and Vicks menthol, I can promptly move on...
I am not one for making resolutions, however, I always start off on a positive note every New Year. Even though I was sick, I thought of positive things that I want to do within the next twelve months. I intend to live more in the moment, and less in the future. The moment is where I am, and the future is uncertain. So why spend time with uncertainty? I'd rather live where I'm at and bloom where I am planted.
My type of living is doing positive, well-intended, yet challenging things. They are optimistic, and peaceful to the universe.
Peace and love to you in 2010. Happy New Year!
