Write Your Own 2013

Happy new year to all of my family and friends!  

Love and all things positive for 2013...

It was a blessed week of family and friends, giving and receiving, traveling far and snuggling at home. Today, like every New Year's Day, was filled with talk about resolutions and the year to come. While I was looking around on Goodreads for my next great book, I stumbled upon an excerpt from a book that I found particularly fitting.  I like it because it is about more than a spoken resolution...it's about specifics and it made me think.  

  Here's to writing your own story this year!


“Make New Year's goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you're interested in fully living life in the year to come. 
Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.
What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?
What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?
What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?
Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down - as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go. 
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”
