We have made the transition from 2014 into 2015. I am amazed by how fast time is moving right now!! I hope you all celebrated the changing of the year in the way you wanted. I celebrated with my mum and dad after doing a meditation on gratitude and love- it was a beautiful way to greet 2015!
In my December posts, I encouraged you to imagine what you want your life to look and feel like in the coming year, and to set your intention for all you want to experience. It is also really important to feel gratitude for all that has brought us to where our lives are right now.
The ending of a cycle is a great time to take stock of all that has come before so we can open our eyes to all that is amazing in our present.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank all those who have been part of my journey whether for a moment or years- thank you for all the blessings your presence has brought me. And thank you dear web friends, your support means a lot!
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
I hope you have all taken stock too and are prepared to let go of that which no longer serves you, so you have the space to fill your life with your dreams. Acknowledging the gifts already in our lives is a hugely important step on the path to true contentment, so I hope you have discovered a huge list of all to be grateful for in this moment too!
This is a poem my very talented friend Ian wrote on Christmas day. I am posting it here today as I think it is beautiful and needs to be read and felt by all of us! The theme fits in beautifully with the acknowledging of all the gifts we have in this moment and feeling gratitude for them.
To all the people left alone.
To those with no one to care.
To the empty souls with nowhere to go.
Know that someone is thinking of you, in this very moment.
Know that there is love.
To the men on the bridge in the cold with the cups
And the hollow eyes and invisible lives.
To the woman under the arch and the girl who smiled back.
To the desperate, to the hungry.
If, through the non-action of people like me, through the non-action of a society that finds it easier to ignore than to care;
If, you do not make it through this winter’s cold may your soul find rest in eternity.
May you find the light, may you find the warmth, may you find the love, may you find the peace.
To the lucky ones.
To the families, friends, gathered, laughing, fighting, giving, eating, reminiscing, loving, being.
To the perfect little angels waiting patiently.
To the half-eaten carrot, the imagined sound of bells.
To the feelings of joy too easily forgotten.
To a culture that hides, to a people that flee, to a species that is lost, to all humanity.
There is more truth in the eyes of a child that waits for a dream on Christmas eve
Than in the empty landscape of our society.
Remember, remember, remember.
To all, to everyone,
To the unloved, to the loved, to the broken, to the whole, to the fallen and the ascended.
Everyone everywhere. Happy Christmas.
Happy New Year to everyone, everywhere!
Be brave, dream big, let go of all that is ready to be released and remember to action your dreams every day in any way you can!
With love and light,
