Good morning and welcome, 2016!
It’s so good to see you shining down on us today!
I’m looking forward to the next 365 days we will spend together…one additional day than 2015, since you are a leap year, and that’s pretty unique.
And since you are unique, 2016, you are going to be like no other year.
You are going to be filled with possibility and with positivity.
I intend to be aware of each minute in every hour of every day. I will absorb and welcome everything you have to offer.
My word for you this year is: DETERMINED.
I am DETERMINED to accomplish all of the goals I have set for myself during the time we spend together.
I am DETERMINED to finish four creative projects, including improving SoulSEAker and bringing it to the next level.
I am DETERMINED to declutter and complete my aqua blue sanctuary, which will be a place for writing and for creativity.
I am DETERMINED to NOT let stress get in the way of my health or in the way of living, and to not let things I cannot control control ME. Those days are over.
I am DETERMINED to live and experience life in honor of those who left our world too soon, people special to me, like Dad, Poppy, Michael, Tara, Roscoe, Pete, Ron, Nick, and so many others. Their legacies will shine through my experiences and my words.
I am DETERMINED to be myself and to say farewell to fear.
Most importantly, I am DETERMINED to become the person I am meant to be through hard work, taking a chance or two, as Michael would have advised, by just DOING it.
Bring it on, 2016! I embrace you with open arms and am so excited for the journey we are about to embark upon together.
