WOWEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! What a ride I have been taking in this full and wonderful life! I have had such a chock full mega rich magical time with family and friends…and then top it all off with a WOW professional life too! These past few months have whizzed by and I am back just in time to send out a juicy thought for you that will surely bring in your 2014 with feel goooooooooood feelings rippling up and down your spine!

OK–now —you all know that you get what you focus on—and the quality of your life is determined by the focus of your attention.

As the New Year dawns– I am asking you to turn your attention to that which is your authentic nature.

Loving kindness and generosity of spirit IS your authentic nature. I am asking you to choose this authentic space to come from, for you, for one another, and for this beautiful place we call home!

Seriously–can you imagine if you gave the good wishes of the greatest good within us all–the support, strength, attention, awareness, focus, energy, and effort you could muster????

Ohhhh yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………………

 Yup—-not only would it feel pretty friggin good for you—but I’m telling you—that energy is contagious!

 So—I have an easy and cool way to do this—-

In this New Year I ask you to turn your attention and ….….If you could do “one thing” that would…………..

change your mind

change your attitude

change your day

change your life

change the world

change your focus

…what would you do?

 Wondering what that “one thing” might be?

 The answer is amazingly simple. That “one thing” is whatever you want it to be!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, in each and every moment of each day there is “one thing” you can do to honor life, one thing that will honor you, others and the world you live in. It might be a simple random act of kindness, calling a friend just to say I love you, helping one of your co-workers, thanking someone for being in your life, giving a compliment, reading a story to a child, carrying someone’s bags, opening the door for a stranger, smiling at a stranger, appreciating 3 things around you, singing to your favorite song, find some snow and make a snowman, help someone take down their Holiday decorations, cook a meal for someone, watch a funny movie, buy someone a cup of coffee that you do not know… the list could go on and on. It can be anything!!

 We live in one world. Nothing can happen to you that doesn’t happen to me. Nothing can happen to them that doesn’t happen to us. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. We are in this together. HOORAY–let’s make each day, each moment better!!!

 Here are two great quotes to wrap the year up—one with more weighty words to ponder and one with some silly and lighthearted words—yet both pack a powerful message!

 In the words of George Bernard Shaw:

“This is the true joy in life, to be used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, to be thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap. To be a force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am a member of a community and as a member it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can before I die. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch that I want to make burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

 And as Dr. Seuss would remind us:

 “You have brains in your head,

you have feet in your shoes,

you can steer yourself

in any direction you choose.

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.”

HAPpPpPpY NEW YEAR TO YOU!!
