~ Happy, Happy New Year! ~



Just wanted to take a moment and ensure that I wish each and everyone of you wonderful souls a very blessed, prosperous, fun and healthy new year!

Are you one that makes resolutions?  I don't...I break them by Jan 3rd at the latest. :)  I do like to have goals and I make a vision board. This morning I watched a show on OWN with Oprah and Wayne Dyer, my boyfriend. ;-) He spoke about his leukemia and the experience he had re: healing. It was extremely interesting. I have his new book, "Wishes Fulfilled" and the CD/DVD. I can't wait to sit down and take the time to enjoy them. He's such a positive force I think, although he speaks in such a gentle manner. A lot to think about as far as our thoughts and verbiage to ourselves. Sometimes I think we can be our own worst enemies in the negative self-talk. I heard Marianne Williamson speak about this eons ago and it rang true for me. If you were spoken to in a negative manner as a child and teen then you usually pick up the negative tapes and run them yourself...except you will be harsher than the adult that spoke them to you in the first place. *raises hand*   

We would never allow a friend or relative to speak to us like that would we? And...we wouldn't want to speak to another in that fashion so it's so important to treat ourselves as we wish to be treated.

In view of the Newtown, CT, tragedy and other happenings in the world, perhaps the kindest thing we can do is to always come from a place of LOVE. I'm going to really make an effort to do this...wanna join me?

Happy New Year!!

Yes, Pat, I will join you. I am glad to see 2012 leave, so many bad things happened, not to me personally, for which I am forever grateful, but it was a little disappointing for me. I had successes in medical issues so I cannot complain. Happy New Year to you! xo

Great post- Pat. I KNOW that I am my own worst enemy in many areas. I need to work on that. My friend just called me and she is reading a book by Joyce Myers about self-worth and she said it has changed her life- Happy New Year to you- xo Diana

I say on with the new year. There have been so many tragedies, people need a fresh start. let's hope for a brighter new year. Happy New year to you.

I couldn't agree more Pat. Putting 2012 behind me is a postitive step. I want and need to grab ahold of the postitive and let it rule my life. You know that this has been a pretty tough time for me but, having the holidays behind is a good thing. So much emotion was riding high during this time. but, now I just want to open my heart to love, peacefulness and postitive energy. I have a lot of hope for this new year! I also hope you have a fantastic new year my friend! Hugs, Diann :)

Resolutions? Ha, although I've tried
in the past I never seem to stick
to them...

Happy New Year and may wonderful things come your way.

I think the only resolution I have ever stuck to for a whole year was this years..... it was to use up all my shampoo's. Silly, but I did it.

I love Wayne Dyer- simple thoughts and ideas that really can change your perspective. I find him very inspirational.

Happy New Year! I certainly want to join you. I don't make resolutions either...just a few goals (clean out the basement storage room, lose 20 pounds)etc.

There seems to be so much anger in the world today...I really do think the world used to be a kinder place and I don't think it is just because I'm old that I think that!!
