Goodness, just a little after 8 am and I am writing my daily post, this truly is a good sign. Could it be that I am slowly getting back into the groove of my routine? It seems the last few weeks have been a blurr, racing past at full speed, leaving little time if any to do the things which I normally do on a daily basis, let alone anything new. I have survived, which in itself is a good thing. And yes... I even have had a good time if I say so myself. I have learned that despite some things that may not necessarily be my favorite that if I let go a bit sometimes it is much easier. Believe it or not I can be somewhat controlling with my environment... Hard to believe isn't it...
I have so many anticipations for the coming year. In just a couple days the old year as most see it, will roll past us letting way to 2010. Although I truly believe in truth my new year started after Samhain, as I felt the change and shift in things start to take place at this time. Yule likewise brought its continuing feeling of subtle change evolving. All of which seems to be good. A fresh feeling is what I see on the horizon and it excites me.
So many new friends have come my way this past 6 months. When I started this blog in July, I was yearning for people of like minds in my life. Those who I could be open with and speak my mind freely - with no worry as to their response. I have even enjoyed the difference in opinions as it has as it always does, help me to remember there are always 2 sides (usually more). This acceptance has given me confidence in so many things. It is such a blessing when one has such friends to surround themselves with.
This new years transition is quite special in so many ways..... Not only does it bring us a new year, a chance to once again "start over".... It also is the night of the blue moon, when there are 2 full moon occurrences in one month. Although this happens on average of every 2 and a half years, it is still a rare occurrence and something to enjoy. There is also a partial lunar eclipse at this time yet it is not visible to any of us in North America. I was truly hoping for a clear crisp sky on this evening and still am keeping my fingers crossed yet it appears that the weather man has other plans in store for me. Hopefully they are as incorrect as they usually are and I will be able to enjoy this site in all its glory.
I can not help but be a bit giddy as time slowly continues on its journey. I have such a feeling of excitement in me. I hope that the feelings I feel are an overall vision for all. It is so time for some good things to happen to so many. The last year has been a rough patch for many and still in some cases it continues. I truly hope it was our winter and we are about to enter into a time of spring and new birth.
A few words I leave you with this fine Tuesday morning.... Although I usually do not encourage new year resolutions as I feel that many times we make a list of things that we are destined to fail at, I would like to ask that in the many minutes that make up your day today, that you take a few of them and sit quietly off by yourself. I know that this is close to impossible sometimes, yet try diligently to acquire the time to do so. Make it place that is peaceful and your own. In silence ponder the coming year and a few of the things you would truly like to accomplish, or at least begin to accomplish as many times we are accomplishing feats throughout our lives. Just choose one or two and make them somewhat simple. Promise yourself that an honest effort will be given towards this endeavor as you venture forward into 2010. And to make that wish even stronger..... write your choices on a small piece of paper and put it someplace special.
I truly wish for all of you a wonderful day: one filled with vision and inspiration for the feats and challenges you will encounter this coming year. We are all filled with the wisdom and the capability to succeed through anything that is placed before us... Remember...... Believing is halfway there..... xo
