I cannot help but envision a new year as a blank book. We can actually see each new morning in the same way, each day is a new chapter. Each new moment is a new paragraph.
The possibilities before us are endless.
Let’s become authors with purpose as we write this new book. Each individual letter that we write in this new book will be noted with purpose. At no time will we place our pen to paper to be reactive. We will give each word thought before it is written. As the author of our lives, we have the choice to stop, breathe and take the necessary time to process how we want to express ourselves in our book of life.
We can fill our pages with love and release hatred. We can reflect peace in our book of life in order to reject hatred, stress and conflict. We can let go of our past for we no longer live there. By releasing our past, we can live in today. In doing so, we choose mindfulness over reaction.
We have the strength to change our habits and reactions from the past. Change is seldom found in our comfort zone however. Step out of that comfort zone so that you are no rewriting an old story. The past no longer serves us and all habits created to help us in the past can now be released. Have faith in your own abilities to do so.
I closed with a quote from Oprah Winfrey because she has said it well, “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”
What will you do with this “very moment”?
Take a moment to think about it and then put your pen to paper.
May you recognize and appreciate the blessings that this moment holds.
